Interaction with guests
If you are seeking seclusion you will be left in peace, but it's nice to say 'hi' when we meet on the driveway to share ideas and listen to what you've enjoyed. We can always be contacted even if we aren't around.

A beautiful week spent in this rural retreat. The quiet and peace was outstanding. The cottage is simple and well equipped. Gina could not have been more helpful. The night time animal watching was a special treat.

About the neighbourhood
With a Monmouthshire postcode but technically in England, your holiday will embrace both English and Welsh cultures. Sitting above the Wye Valley, and bordering the Forest of Dean, you have the opportunity to explore the wealth of historic and cultural offerings
Getting around
You will need your own transport unless you plan a complete walking adventure- in which case organise a supermarket delivery to get your groceries. The village shop is a strenuous uphill walk.
