Reviews from our guests

There are several places where our guests leave us comments.

Not everyone writes in our books ( and they were plastic wrapped during the pandemic which meant many did not ) – but some people do write by hand in the visitor books in each cottage ( sometimes even signed by the pets! ) Sometimes people forget to write in the book and e mail us later. We faithfully copy these comments as they come in and we upload them here. The only thing we ever hide or alter is the full guest name and address for obvious reasons of privacy.

Secondly we encourage our guests to write about us on the site through which they booked (Trip Advisor, Air B and B,, Freetobook  etc)

As you will see we do have brilliant reviews. They are genuine, not a “fix” and  and its not that nothing ever goes wrong!  Although our standards are very high just occasionally, in the real world,  things are bound to happen. Machines fail, something breaks. The successive good reviews are  because if something does go awry, and if our guests tell us about it  during their stay,  we do move heaven and earth to fix it while those guests are still with us. People greatly appreciate this effort  on our part  and we guarantee  we always make it. If once in a while a review is less than wonderful it is  almost always the case that it was outside our control ( internet down or slow in the whole area for example)  or we were only advised about a problem after those guests had departed when there was nothing we could do to make it better.

We were priviledged to stay in the cottage for a month. It really became home to us. so quiet and restful. The cottage itself is very comfortable, has everything needed for any length of stay. Beautiful location, great village and the surrounding countryside is stunning. Highly recommended as long a stay as possible!

Thank you fiona and Malcolm

Tintern Abbey cottage "Amazing" 3rd May 2019 -

Thanks for a wonderful welcome and a fabulous cottage experience. This is an outstanding area for exploring and there are miles of walks from the doorstep, and in particular around Tintern. The walk up to The Devil’s Pulpit is worth it!

We visited Chepstow and Raglan Castles and thoroughly enjoyed them. We also managed an afternoon in Cardiff (only 45 minutes away).

We loved the cottage and the area.

Foxes Reach - A Fabulous Cottage Experience - April 2019

We’ve had a lovely week in Foxes Reach Cottage and have enjoyed many local sights. Fiona and Malcolm gave us an Easter Themed Welcome and were on hand to deal with any issues promptly.

We’re a family of four (2 children aged 14 and 11) and a dog and they enjoyed playing in the garden and the hot tub.

We can recommend visiting Caerfilly and Chepstow Castles and of course, Tintern Abbey. We can also recommend Canoe the Wye for a wonderful afternoon canoeing down the river and the beautiful walks around tintern.

Thank for a lovely break in a wonderful location.

Foxes Reach - Easter themed Welcome -

What a breath of fresh air, such a gorgeous cottage!! Real home from home and the fire was a comforting feature at the end of each day. My daughter enjoyed horse riding at Severnwye Equestrian centre and the Forest of Dean Railway was a highlight for my son. Highly recomment Krazy Golf at Lydney for the children and the big kids, the burgers at the next door American Diner are fab!

Again thanks so much for providing a wonderful stay. We will be sure to recommend to all our friends.
