This is a working farm complete with 500+pigs, cattle and sheep,2 horses, chickens and ducks plus cats and 3 intelligent and lovable dogs. They also have orchards growing apple trees for cider.Farmer Tim and wife Fiona were very hospitable and we had very comfortable ensuite rooms. Everything worked and our host and hostess were very attentive to all our needs.Fiona despite being the busy farmer's wife, even took us on a tour of her farm.We stayed here for 2 nights. would have loved to stay here for a week.
Great for families with kids. Fiona makes best steak and kidney pies! If you are too tired to walk down to the pub for a meal in the evenings, Fiona can fix you a hearty meal in a jiffy. They have a farm shop and a tea room. Tuesday lunches are specials for those 50 years and above.
We did not stay at this hotel but used it's bar and the ancient hand ferry it operates, taking you from the Herefordshire side of the river, Symond's Yat East, over to the Gloucesteshire side of Symond's Yat West.
We found it to be a friendly pub however, we discovered, sadly, rather unclean benches to sit on at lunch time, this did not reflect on the quality of the food which was good.
The barman was a little 'grumpy' shall we say.
The ancient hand ferry, it's quaintness and location.
Quiet, traditional, clean and cosy. The food was of an average grade here but with a bar onsite and a maximum of 22 people eating at any one time this hotel retains a cosy atmosphere.
The views also are a plus, overlooking the valley and the river.
This hotel is nestled into the heart of the Wye Valley on the banks of the Wye River. It offers a perfect base for access to the surrounding countryside, whether you want to walk, hire bikes from the hotel or 'play' on the river.
