Interaction with guests
We try to welcome every arriving party personally to show you anything you need to know and then we leave you to enjoy. We can suggest lots of things to see and do if you would like this assistance- and there is loads of information in the cottage. We do come regularly to service the hot tub but we are discreet and you will probably not see us. If you need us we are available throughout your stay- just e mail.

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is located in a quiet residential hamlet called Catbrook approx 2 miles by road on the hill above Tintern Village and Tintern Abbey in the spectacularly lovely Wye Valley. Catbrook is within the officially designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The cottage has quiet neighbouring houses and is in a cul de sac so almost no passing traffic.. It is not isolated but the setting is private. You can walk with your dog from the doorstep on lanes or into protected woodland- beautiful all year.There are well waymarked trails. The location is very convenient. We are under half an hour by car from Motorway links M50/M5/M6 and from M48/M4 so therefore accessible all year.
Getting around
Its best to bring your own car or cycle as public transport is not ideal in our rural area. Nearest bus stops are approx 1.5 miles.
