About Bronte Kingfisher

Bronte Kingfisher is a sweet terraced cottage in a lovely location within walking distance of Lea's well-stocked village shop and friendly pub, The Crown Inn. The cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms and is perfect for couples, small families, or even independent travellers who appreciate its space and period charm.

Lea is a pretty village only four miles from Ross-on-Wye. It is close to both the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and the Forest of Dean where there are miles of family-friendly footpaths and cycling trails leading to beautiful views. Kayak along the River Wye or stand above it at Symond's Yat, admiring far-reaching views over the ancient forest and fast-flowing river. There is plenty on offer all year round to ensure even the most active person can find something to keep them happily occupied. If they do manage to exhaust the local trails before it's time to leave then the Malvern Hills AONB is only a short drive away.

In addition to the beautiful forest around Lea village, visitors can enjoy favourite local attractions that include Clearwell Caves, the ancient trees of Puzzlewood - one of the UK's oldest remaining natural forests, Hopewell Colliery and the Dean Forest Railway. It may be peaceful now, but numerous castles and fortified buildings remain standing in various states of repair to attest that its past was not always so relaxed. Penyard Castle is the closest, but others worth visiting include Raglan Castle, White Castle, Grosmont Castle and Chepstow Castle.

Shopping is a pleasure with so many lovely market towns dotted around the area. Ross-on-Wye has a good choice of places to shop and eat, as do Monmouth, Hay-on-Wye and Tewkesbury. The cathedral cities of Hereford and Gloucester are also within easy reach, the former having a wider selection of shops and amenities than the latter, though both boasting beautiful cathedrals and a lovely atmosphere.

The cottage is one of three Herefordshire holiday cottages available to rent, including the adjacent Bronte Owl cottage which sleeps six people. The cottages can be booked on their own or together to accommodate groups of up to 17 family members and friends. The owner's website has more information.
