“A great place in a quite, relaxing environment”
Reviewed July 13, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We enjoyed a great holiday. The cottage is very well maintained and was in top condition. It comfortably sleeps 4 people. It‘s fully equipped with all necessary kitchen wares and electrical appliances. There are 2 great pubs serving also good food within a short walking distance. The cottage provides for reading materials, games, maps for hiking and leaflets for nearby sightseeing activities. Time was unfortunately too short. We spend a full week and would have loved to extend it by another one. We can strongly recommend staying at this place. Just a word of well-intentioned advice: plan to arrive at day time as finding your way at night could be a bit more difficult.

Cottage was amazing, had everything in place that you could need. Very clean, directions very easy spot on. Location was out of this world. Wildlife in the back garden was fantastic.

“Lovely”
Reviewed May 11, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Lovely cottage in a fabulous area. The cottage was well equipped and very clean. The surrounding gardens are beautiful, with lots of wildlife on the doorstep. We were visited every morning by a pheasant in the back courtyard, and enjoyed watching and listening to all the various birds, squirrels, foxes etc. Easy access to Symond's Yat East and with great walks starting at the front door. Would love to come back soon.

“A lovely place”
Reviewed May 5, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed at Sue's Cottage in late March and had a lovely time. The cottage is very well equipped for self catering and it was very cosy and comfortable too. Very comfortable beds. The area is gorgeous and we walked miles. A lovely place to explore and an excellent cottage from which to do so. Thank you Justine.

“Immaculate cottage in a brilliant location”
Reviewed April 21, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a brilliant stay at Sue's Cottage. Justine, the owner, clearly has put a lot of thought and care into the fittings and amenities at the property and as a result we felt very much at home during our week. The cottage itself is warm, comfortable and well appointed. We appreciated the strong shower and the Egyptian Cotton bed linen after long days of hiking (as well as the cottage's close proximity to a number of pubs and restaurants practically on the doorstep in Symond's Yat). All in all, Sue's Cottage exceeded our expectations and we hope to return in the not too distant future.
