    “A lovely, well-sited bungalow overlooking the River Wye, set in a quiet location and with easy access.”

    The bungalow was well appointed and equipped, with modern decor and furnishings. It was well looked after, very clean and suitable for our four-legged friends. The hot tub proved a real bonus and again was well maintained and checked daily. The owner, who lived locally, was very friendly and helpful… with a lovely Welsh accent. Many thanks Steve for a wonderful holiday and please let us know when the next holiday home is up and running.
