We offer the warmest welcome.  Anne's Cottage is very much a family concern, with your host Anne, firmly at the helm. Travelling both in the UK and abroad she is very much aware of the differences of quality and standards with accommodation. With this in mind, the focus is on quality. This has won many guests over the years with many returning year after year since the cottage opened for business in 2001.  

We were a 4 Star rated cottage with VisitBritain from 2001-2019.  However, with the growth of Airbnb, we decided after much thought to save on costs to suspend our membership.  We are now able to pass more value to our valued guests including the ability to instant book 24/7 via our page on Airbnb or those discovering this web page are still able to book directly with us and save on Airbnb fees.



On arrival a 'Welcome Pack' of tea, coffee, milk and sugar awaits you.


For weekly breaks there is an additional surprise welcome in store!

Fishermen friendly

The River Wye is just down the hill.  Becareful though you will have a steep climb up if you decide to walk! The river has a great variety of inhabitants including chub, roach, dace, bream, pike, salmon and trout.  It is also rumored that there is also the odd pearch and carp coming out of the river.


Canoeist friendly


The River Wye is nationally known for outstanding canoeing.  Many guests book canadian canoes from Ross on Wye and take a meander down to Symonds Yat.  Being close to the Wye we also have a Canadian which you may hire.  We can recommend the best activity centres which will meet up with you at the end of your trip.  A day on the river is an ideal way to relax.
