Lovely welcome and advice, cottage is very cosy and has all the facilities required.

Tips:

Fountain Inn for great food, local beer and a great bunch of people. Rose and crown in Tintern for great home cooked food. Chepstow and Raglan for castles, Tintern for nice walks. Great area go explore!

Fantastic hosts, really good communication from start to finish. Fiona and team have created a really wonderful place to recharge the batteries. The fireplace was a real treat as was the jacuzzi, great wine on arrival too.

Tips:

There’s lots to do in the area, we managed horse riding, Symonds Yat (the east car park) and took the walk down to the river. The Big Pit was great, although the ride was hair-raising through the fog-all part of the adventure though, kids loved it. The walk from Tintern to Brockweir was doable and great views of the area. All in all a fab week!!

Owner Response:

So glad you enjoyed your stay. The temperature in the house is 22C in the evenings but we do know some people like it warmer which is why the smart new woodburner is available- though you had gorgeous sunshine for your stay it was still February. The wood, firelighters and kindling are prepackaged so that guests can see what you are getting for your money. We dont mark them up, we provide them as a service though you can bring them from elsewhere if you wish. £1.40 is our current rate for a whole pack of firelighters. It isnt necessary to use them to light a fire but they make it easy and one pack contains enough for a whole weeks worth of fires or barbecues! Sorry you only decided to use it once and had lots over!

This is a beautiful cottage in a peaceful location. The cottage is spacious and very well equipped. We were given a warm welcome on our arrival and the milk and Welsh cakes were very welcome.

Tips:

The Anchor in Tintern proved to be a good place for dinning out and the breakfast in the White Monk cafe was suburb. The cottage is located in a very rural area and there are no shops in Tintern - we later discovered that bread and milk could be purchased in the cafe. The main shops are in Monmouth or Chepstow ( approx 6 miles away) so stock up when you first arrive. There also plenty of places for buying local produce.

Thanks for taking the time to review the cottage. We are so glad you loved it! Yes we agree we could do with a local shop, the nearest is 2 miles, but as you know all the supermarkets do deliver to the cottage. Sorry the first aid kit was out of sticking plasters. We ask people to replace what they have used before checkout , but someone did not and we should have noticed. Come again before too long!

Lovely cottage with every comfort

Tips:

Not walkable to a local pub - except on a Friday eve when the Village Hall becomes a pub! We had the curry from The Curry Queen, which was very nice - but the driver couldn't find us - and it was cold when it arrived- so maybe need to give clear instructions when ordering.

Thanks for leaving us a great review. The nearest pubs(4) are all about 2 miles in various directions. Lots of people do walk to them, but mostly for lunch in summer rather than on winter evenings. Yes our village hall has all sorts of good events to which visitors are welcome including film nights and the pub night! We are a bit surprised the curry driver was lost. They are based under 2 miles away and deliver all over the village every weekend. Can only assume they had a non regular driver! Delighted you loved the cottage. Come back soon!

Thanks for taking the time to write this review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and loved the cottage .You booked via our agent not direct with us and we have again checked that their advert does say Catbrook near Tintern and does give the distance to the nearest pubs etc. For the benefit of others reading this Foxes Reach is 1.5 miles from Tintern, 2 miles from the Abbey itself (and our other cottage right in the village) , and 1.5 to 2 miles from several good pubs.The plus side is a very quiet but not isolated location, perfect for the secluded garden with its hot tub.Now you have found us come again soon!

We had a lovely stay at this cute cottage. There is a hot tub in a nice garden that isn’t overlooked and enclosed if you are taking dogs with you like we did. After a session in the hot tub you can get cozy and warm by the wood burner. The cottage is well equipped so you will have everything you need. Lovely bedrooms and bathrooms, there is bath upstairs and a shower room downstairs. I would definitely recommend this cottage to friends and family.

Tips:

Travel down before it gets dark if possible or you could pass the turning down to the cottage. Also go with the directions given you by the owners as your sat nav isn’t always correct.

Tips:

Some great walks around the cottage. Would recommend a visit to Whitestone where the views of the Wye Valley are amazing. The Forest of Dean is close by and a visit to Puzzlewood is also recommended. We absolutely love this area and this is our 4th visit and it certainly will not be our last.

We found your comment about the heating after you had left. Such a shame you did not contact us whilst you were there. We did welcome you in and always say if there are any issues you should do that. The problem was that despite being newly replaced the battery in the thermostat had failed so it was not calling for heat as it should have done. As soon as a new one was fitted it warmed up.( that said it was still between 20 and 21 degrees in the cottage so not very cold.) Apologies!

Warm and friendly welcome. Cottage of a high standard. Every mod con catered for. Not sure quite so many notices are necessary - the clientele you cater for are well aware of septic tanks, tumble dryers, candle use etc. We have stayed in other five star cottages where this is a little more discrete. Quite cramped for more than four people.

Thank you so much for taking the time to add a review for us. We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay very much and that as there were only four of you and four bedrooms you did have plenty of space. Sorry you didnt like our notices but in fairness those are all kept on the notice board in the laundry room with the exception of the ones about the septic tank which are in the two loos. Unfortunately not everyone is as considerate as you evidently are and after several horrible blockages we have learned that they are very much required and this does seem to have helped.Apologies hat they didnt apply to you

We stayed in the winter months so wanted a cottage that would be ideal for spending more time in than on average. Foxes Reach was superb from the moment we arrived - heating on, table set and thoughtful food gifts. Foxes Reach has everything you could wish for, hot tub, drying facilities, beautiful garden, wood burner in lounge, comfortable beds(king size in main bedroom) televisions in all rooms, plus all the extras you didn't realise you needed until you spotted them, candle holders, hot water bottles, reading material, games, coffee machine, beautiful lighting plus lots more. We would hope to return in the summer too

Tips:

The cottage is dog friendly and having taken ours we would recommend the many walks in the area. The Fountain pub which is five minutes drive away (can also walk) serves beautiful food and very friendly (dogs welcome). Monmouth is a lovely place to visit with independent shops, many eateries and a lovely old cinema. Would also recommend the steam train through the beautiful countryside (again dogs welcome on most journeys)
