Lovely comfortable cottage with all mod cons. Hot tub was a lovey treat and lovely to sit out and star gaze. Location means there is no chance of flooding but a steep climb back from pub so need to be fit and able if walking. Owners left us to ourselves and we didnt feel uncomfortable at all. We would definitely recommend this cottage.

We have had a great week away. The cottage was perfect for us and the owners super friendly. The surrounding area had plenty to keep us entertained on good and bad weather days. The local pub offered a warm and friendly atmosphere along with their great food and drink. Would recommend this holiday to anyone!

Little Holdings is an extremely 'up together property', well appointed and with all conceivable creature comforts. The hot tub was very enjoyable as was the thoughtful provision of a welcome bottle of Prosecco and box of chocolates on arrival. We received a very warm welcome from the proprietors Paul and Lesley.

The cottage was clean, simple and welcoming. Everything worked, the sofa and bed was comfy and the icing on the cake, the hot tub. It was so nice to get into the tub at the end of a long days cycling. Its in a lovely location and the hosts are really friendly but not intrusive. I thoroughly recommend this holiday home.

Absolutely loved this cottage! Paul and lesley (owners/hosts) were very lovely and there to greet us and show us around the cottage and then left us to enjoy our break. Very cosy, comfortable and well equipped cottage with the added (and much enjoyed) bonus of a hot-tub. The location is beautiful, it feels very rural but only a few miles from Ross-Read moreon-wye Town centre. We had a very relaxing break and would definitely recommend for couples. Hide

Lesley and Paul were lovely hosts - they gave us a warm welcome but gave us our privacy and even had a bottle of fizz and chocolates for our arrival! Three nights in the hot tub and the rural location were perfect for a break away from city centre living and the dog loved it too!

An excellent stay at Little Holdings. If you are less mobile than average the accommodation is up a hill with varying gradient for roughly a mile. We had an amazing time discovering the local area, canoeing down the river and using the cycling tracks in the Forest of Dean.

Reviewed by Trevor, 8th July 2019

A superb place to stay, it has everything you need for a really great holiday. The hot tub outside is a really nice touch and even on cloudy days the accommodation is in a real sun trap and very warm with loungers for relaxing on. If you like a nice shower after a long walk then the power pod will be just what you need. Location is 5 minute drive tRead moreo Symonds Yat East and is surrounded by great woods for walking dogs. Pub is a 15 minute walk down a very steep hill, a great place to stay. Hide

The cottage was ideal, like a home from home. it was clean, well equipped and has been well thought out. The courtyard was ideal with a well maintained hot tub which was so relaxing after a day exploring the many attractions around the area. The courtyard was also well equipped with seating, table, sun loungers & retractable clothes line. The ownerRead mores were so welcoming & on hand throughout our stay. Hide
