The semi- detached cottage is set in a peaceful location with breathtaking views of the Wye Valley. The cosy cottage is set in an ideal location for either a peaceful relaxing break or an active holiday with foot paths, bike trails, canoeing and rock climbing right on the door step. The cottage has its own garden with seating areas to sit and relax whilst taking in the panoramic views across the valley. There are a few traditional pubs and restaurants nearby.
“Comfy house, great views, lovely and warm. Beautifully clean and well equipped. Always amusing when previous guests leave their netflix logged in. Nice to be able to separate recycling and compost waste as we would do at home. Always read the visitors book - we found out about the Biblins footbridge from a previous guest”
Self contained annex to our house. Set in an AONB at the end of an unmettled, bumpy woodland track with no passing traffic. Miles of woodland walking accessible directly from the garden. We are off grid but have our own PV electricity supply. We enjoy diverse wildlife including fallow deer and a wide range of bird life. Bring your binoculars! We enjoy a peaceful secluded setting. The garden is not enclosed. The Annex offers a shower room (no bath)
“Anne and Mark’s home is situated in the heart of the forest, with many footpaths literally on the doorstep leading to ancient parts of the woodland . It was magical . As many others have mentioned there is also a great pub within walking distance next to the river with stunning views. We also took a day canoeing on the Wye river, seeing kingfishers, a goshawk and even jumping salmon. A wonderful way to experience the area. Symonds Yat Rock too is of outstanding beauty. There are so many walks to choose from that we would love to come back to do. Another worthy place to mention is the village of Newlands with the local pub the Ostrich providing excellent food on one of our walks. We felt very spoilt in this beautiful and very peaceful haven. Anne and Mark made us feel instantly welcomed and relaxed . Anne kindly provided provisions which where greatly appreciated . Their home is exactly as the photographs , clean and well thought out. At night the temperature did cool down so it was a joy to warm up by the wood burner. Thank you Anne and Mark , we had a wonderful time.”
7 Wye Rapids Cottages is in a beautiful location overlooking the River Wye and enjoys spectacular views of Symonds Yat. It is also our little home from home and we want you to feel as comfortable as we do. We have a lovely wood burning stove with a generous stock of wood, comfortable beds and a whole range of home comforts. It also has an enclosed rear courtyard with side access (useful for dogs, bikes, canoes etc!).
“What a lovely cottage and amazing location. Also suddenly realised we were looking at the red house, across the river, from the new Netflix series "Sex Education" we didnt see Gillian Anderson but the view was as stunning from this side of the river for sure. The temporary road isn't for the faint hearted but we managed to drive the big Range Rover in and out daily without any scratches (felt like a proper adventure, though my partner suggested we buy a small car next time to save on blood pressure). A great week, thanks again!!”
