"What can we say? We had a fantastic time in
the cottage. You made it very homely, it's beautiful.
This was just what we needed."


Beautiful bedrooms sleeping up to 4 people

Upstairs, the main bedroom, with kingsize bed, is spacious and airy with a view over the footpath, lush walled country gardens and across to the hills above Brockweir where you often see horses grazing. It retains beamed features along with original stone window sills and surroundings. In the evening, the lamps (including a tall-shaded corner lamp) give a lovely romantic glow to this room.

  The second bedroom, enjoys views to the hill above Brockweir in the Wye Valley, where horses can usually be seen - this can be a double or twin upon request

You'll find an iron and ironing board in the wardrobe and a hairdryer in the drawers here.

The second bedroom, though smaller, is just as charming with a small stone fireplace feature and original exposed stone wall. This enjoys the same views and can be made-up as a twin or double to suit your requirements (please note that the twins are 2'6" (childrens size) that become a kingsize when combined). Both rooms have modern yet sympathetic furnishings, and feature sumptuous duck-down duvets and pillows and Egyptian cotton sheets that will sleep you in indulgent comfort.

Take a moment to watch the horses from the local rescue centre on the hill and the birds flying around the trees and eaves of surrounding buildings; enjoy the tranquility of the quiet countryside as the evening fades.

Then to the bathroom, where you can relax with a well-earned soak in the lovely traditional style roll-top bath - always a favourite. Note that the cottage is bath-only, but the mixer taps have an integrated shower head. When you get out fluffy towels, bathrobes and slippers await you!


Children of all ages are welcome at the cottage, but we ask that parents are careful with young children and toddlers as the stairs are open-sided and the log burner and radiators can obviously get very hot. We can provide a highchair and travel cot upon request - we don't provide cot linen as guests generally prefer to bring their own. We also have toys, books and DVDs to keep our younger guests entertained!

We are dog friendly!

Well behaved dogs may visit Johnson Cottage (for a small charge) provided they are well-managed by their humans. They are not permitted upstairs or on the furniture.

"Cottage was warm, clean, bright and inviting when we walked in.
We were impressed and amazed at all the extras. Bed was comfy and
the bath was a joy. We needed to get away from it all and relax and
we really did. We will definitely come again."

The cottage will be available from 4pm on your date of arrival and departure time is 10am on your last day.
