We are available if you need us, but leave you plenty of privacy. Our house is on the same plot so we are on hand if you have any questions. The cottage is set well away from our house so you feel very private and have plenty of your own space.

There are numerous visitor attractions a short drive from Highlands Cottage, including: canoeing on the River Wye, graded mountain bike tracks, 6 castles, Tintern Abbey, Puzzlewood ancient forest, golf courses, Go Ape, The Forest of Dean, Dean Forest steam railway. At an hour's drive you can access Cardiff and The Brecon Beacon mountains.
