Cosy, well equipped cottage with a good size garden. Hot tub is amazing. Towels and robes provided for hot tub. Comfy king size bed and powerful shower. 20 minute walk down steep hill to a lovely village pub. Lots of good walks and pubs near by. Hosts are very helpful.

We had a fabulous time at Little Holdings, we went for a week of relaxation and that's exactly what we got. The cottage is well equipped, warm and cosy. The location is idyllic sitting high on a hill but only about 3 miles to Ross and local amenities. Woods are directly opposite to take the dogs for a walk, Yat Rock and Symonds Yat are only a 10 miRead morenute drive away with Goodrich Castle even closer. I would highly recommend this little piece of heaven, hot tub included. Hide

The cottage is lovely and of a high standard. Owners do a great job of showing you how everything works on arrival and then leave you to it. We went with our dog and its good how they have even thought of a little grass area for the dog just off the patio area. We would definitely visit again as the walking is lovely around that area.

Lovely comfortable cottage with all mod cons. Hot tub was a lovey treat and lovely to sit out and star gaze. Location means there is no chance of flooding but a steep climb back from pub so need to be fit and able if walking. Owners left us to ourselves and we didnt feel uncomfortable at all. We would definitely recommend this cottage.
