The Generals Cottage accommodation is upstairs, above the owner’s office. We were given instructions but found it quite hard to locate as the satnav didn’t work in this area. It is very rural. Probably easier to find by map reading.

The cottage sleeps 4 but we felt that it would be too small for 4 adults. The kitchen was quite a good size and well equipped. Bathroom good, with a bath and shower over the bath. Bedroom nice, with a comfortable bed. Lounge with a wood burning stove. A little let down by worn sofas. There is an outside table and chairs with beautiful views.

There are lovely walks from the door, including the Wye Valley Way. Offas Dyke passes on the other side of the Wye.

There is a village shop, plus a couple of pubs, all within hilly walking distance. There are very good shopping facilities in Monmouth, which is a few miles drive away.

We had a lovely week and would recommend The Generals as a good place to stay.

    Thank you. It's a shame how towels so often let a place down....

    2 double beds. 2nd double bedroom quite small. Towels & bedlinen provided. (Towels not soft). Electricity included and a very small starter supply for the wood burner.

    What was the bedroom arrangement - double or twin beds?

    Did the rental include bed linen and towels? What about electricity and logs for the wood burner?
