Thank you so much for a truly fantastic vacation in your wonderful home, I'm not sure how to convey in words just how amazing 'The Old Pump House' truly is! Your attention to detail from enquiry through to arrival was completely seamless, thank you.

Myself, my wife and our 7 year old little boy were overwhelmed when we arrived by the stunning location and the look and feel of the property - we are already talking about our return visit. I would recommend this property to anyone wishing to visit the area without hesitation. With all our thanks for a magical vacation.

We have had a great stay, our every need has been catered for, the house and garden are lovely and the position above the River Wye is idyllic.

Super walks from the door, it has been a pleasure to walk the dog - whatever the weather.

We've found the kitchen well laid out and easy to use, super shower, comfy bed, cosy sitting area.... ideal in every way.

Thank you.

Fantastic location, fantastic property. Lots of attention to detail i.e. walking routes, guides on how to use the household items. Fairly certain we'll be back. We have all had a really lovely few days here.

Thank you.

Wonderful place in a fantastic setting!

Little touches were nice - weather for the week and dog food mat. Walking guides were handy and easy access to Forest of Dean bike trails.

Hope to see you again.

Had a wonderful week - not a part of the country we've been to before, but really enjoyed this lovely part of the world.

Fantastic cottage, very well equipped and such a beautiful spot, what a place to relax. We'll certainly think about returning.

Many thanks - a great cottage in a fantastic location. Weather was kind and we ate most of our meals on the patio and down by the river. WiFi a bonus for the teenager!

We had a very relaxing few days in your comfortable Pump House. The view from the garden is wonderful and although the sun did not shine much, we enjoyed sitting and soaking it all up. All your information was very helpful and the house is extremely welcoming.

Staying at the Old Pump House was extremely pleasureable. Stunning location, beautiful garden, perfect accommodation with everything that you could wish for. By far the best holiday experience we have ever had in the UK. You have produced a first class holiday let and we would have no hestiation in recommending you to friends.

Lovely new seating area and pergola. When you think it can't get any better it does. Always clean and well decorated. Great break but always too short. Will be back next year.

Another fantastic stay at The Old Pump House. You never know when you make a return visit whether or not it will live up to the previous holiday. It did and more. We hope to come back soon.

The Old Pump House certainly lived up to its recommendation, superb accommodation in a breathtaking setting. Our young labrador has had some of the best walking of this life and we have enjoyed the wonderful autumn colours.

Many thanks for letting us stay in your wonderful house. We have had a perfect week, in a perfect house in a perfect location. Plenty of cycling routes in the area, fun on the river, walks a plenty... What more could we ask for and of course, the weather has been great for us. We are in love with the Old Pump House and the area and will be coming back, next time we hope for longer.

Once again we have had a highly enjoyable and relaxing time here at Symonds Yat. The Old Pump House is very clean, warm and comfortable, just what you need when you've spent the afternoon exploring a ruined Welsh Castle in the driving rain!

Idyllic situation, wonderful accommodation and a relaxing and peaceful location. What more can you ask for in a family holiday.

Had a lovely time here, best location we have ever stayed in. We normally stay near the coast in Pembrokeshire, but this has been such a fantastic change.

We will definitely come back here again even our dog has spent hours watching the birds, squirrels and rabbits in the garden, he's worn out!

Don't change anything its perfect.

We (and our dog) have had a lovely stay, we are delighted that we have discovered The Old Pump House, and will be returning for sure!

The setting is ideal and facilities are excellent, in fact, everything one could wish for while on holiday.

Thank you very much.

This is a lovely place to stay - spectacular location walks and cycle rides from the door. A charming and welcoming venue with all modern facilities and comfortable furnishings, all well thought out. Shed very useful for bike storage and outside area and garden a pleasant place to relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings whilst listening to the birds..............
