A wonderful winter weekend

  • 5 of 5

Had the most wonderful winter weekend away. The cottage has the most magnificent views towards the Wye. The fires kept us cosy and the kitchen is well equipped. The garden is large, secure and perfect for our Golden Retriever when he was not exploring the river banks. We had a delicious lunch at the Wye Knot Inn and cannot wait to visit again in summer.

Lovely Cottage in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

This is I think the fifth time that we have stayed at this cottage so it is about time we gave this a review. The fact that we have been five times and have another booked for next year should tell you something about how we feel for the place.

The cottage itself is excellent, a good front room, two comfortable bedrooms, a characterful and well equipped kitchen, and a nice big practical entrance room for getting the muddy boots off. There are log burners in both the front room and the kitchen/diner area which is nice, but also the central heating is excellent so we use the fire just cos we can :).

The outside space is lovely with a great decking area with spectacular views of the Wye Valley and to the side is a nice landscaped garden as well.

The location of the cottage is great for us too, it is easy to reach from the main A40 and what we like is the close proximity to the walks around Symonds Yat, and for the evening the excellent choice of local boozers The Wye Knott is the nearest and is a cosy friendly pub and we like the Crown at Whitchurch for it's excellent and cheaply priced Vodka selection. Also the Old Ferry Inn as a great pub located right on the river and the Saracen's head on the other side.

Finally the owners are great and helpful when needed and always prompt with coming back with any questions you have.

Is there anything that could be done better, well it has a rather noisy fridge but that is about it... who cares :). I suppose one thing to note is the steep steps from where you park the car to the property could be a look out for some but for most that is not a problem.

The pictures do not do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic stay at Tivoli! The cottage is perfectly well equipped and easily caters for 6 people. The garden area and multiple outdoor decking areas are really impressive! Only wished we had less rain and could have enjoyed it more! Bread, milk and biscuits on arrival...classy touch! Private parking for up to x3 cars is such a bonus in the valley and shouldn't be underestimated! Perfect location situated between two pubs...a very short stumble home! As the title suggests, the photos do not do this cottage justice. We cant wait to come back!

Great get away

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place to get away from it all. Easy access to the river with the kids and dog, so we had plenty of walks enjoying the lovely surroundings. Loved the log fire, specially the one in the kitchen making the cottage cosy and comfortable. The cottage was well equipped and it was nice to arrive to a loaf of bread, milk and some cookies. Thank you. Kids loved the garden, lots to explore but safe for them to play out with a secure fence allowing the dog freedom too.

Probably be back in the future.

About Darren and Suzanne Bird

Darren and Suzanne Bird.We have been visiting Symonds Yat for 20 years or more and still love the area.We had always dreamed of owning a house here and when Tivoli came on the market in 2007 we had big plans to renovate this derelict cottage.We have only just converted it into a holiday let and are really pleased with the results

Darren and Suzanne Bird purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Darren and Suzanne Bird chose Ross-on-Wye

We love the area because it's a perfect escape from the crowds but with plenty to do and see if we choose.There are wonderful views from the cottage and there are many walks straight from the garden gate.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is set in its own private grounds and is only a few minutes walk to the river and pubs.The cottage benefits from its own off road parking for three cars.It has two large decked areas which are great for al fresco dining or admiring the views with a glass of wine.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We have had the most wonderful weekend in this lovely cottage - a spectacular area" Kate and Patrick, Aidan 5 yrs and Charlie 2 yrs

"This has to be one of the lovliest cottages we have ever stayed in.The veiws are stunning...a pleasure to return to the cottage at the end of the days walking." Richard and Judith,Essex.

Had a great few days here,the cottage is so welcoming and clean.We had some lovely alfresco times on the decking and stayed out until late.

See you again soon.

Jennifer and mum.

"Just a few words to let you know how much we enjoyed our holiday in your cottage, no wonder you wanted a cottage there, what a beautiful place, with such views and so near the river and pubs"
