Mostly very well equipped and a bit chilly in couple rooms, we found the cottage very comfortable and more than suitable for a late middle aged couple. Very good position for sightseeing, with good roads nearby. Lovely to have more than adequate storage for clothes etc. And a beautiful garden to look out at while eating meals.

Excellent location. Walks and cycling nearby and not far from small towns for eating out. Great site. Lovely garden and decking for sitting outside. Everything you could need inside a very clean cottage. Although attached to the owners property they were very friendly but were not obtrusive

Clean, light, bright and spacious, with outdoor decking and views of a garden full of wildlife. Lots of games, books, maps and jigsaws. Great walking in the Wye valley, Forest of Dean and Black Mountains.

Avoid the George Inn for meals, drinks are ok but the food is rubbish. Village is 10 mins away & has virtually nothing there.

The 'Retreat at Greenfields' was exactly that - an excellent retreat for our first ever visit to the FoD/Wye Valley. With the benefit of excellent weather the Retreat proved to be a fantastic base for our holiday with lots of walking and the joy of a steam train ride all fairly close by. The cottage is of a very high standard and the owners and allRead more the fantastic wildlife were most obliging. We are already planning our next visit and looking forward very much to the lovely welcoming cream tea! Hide
