Norton House - Rating 5/5

We were made so very welcome, the room we stayed in was very comfortable indeed, it had all what was needed in refreshment. The breakfasts were excellent and plentiful. The power cut we had on Sunday didn't stop the bacon &eggs arriving.With the lovely roaring fire in the sitting room we were able to sit back and relax with a book.Lynda &David were excellent hosts and we hope to stay with them when we are in that area again.

October break - Rating 5/5

Yet again another wonderful stay in the Apple Store. We really look forward to our October week in the glorious Forest of Dean. The cottage is so well equipped with everything you need to self cater. Lynda &David really are lovely people &so helpful. We arrived to a cake and welcome pack to kick off the first cooked breakfast. We were cosy &warm in spite of having some really mixed weather. We walk to Symonds Yat from the doorstep and my husband enjoys a day or two's fishing on the River Wye where he has caught Wye barbel. Monmouth is nearby &also provides the start for good walking &there are lots of lovely shops. If you haven't been try are in for a treat!!

Very friendly,though the owners never hover around one at breakfast (as some B&B folk are wont to do!).

I stayed two nights and had the Monmouth King room. Arriving late after rehearsing at a nearby concert hall the place was quite difficult to find in the dark but the effort was amply rewarded. I was welcomed with a much-needed pot of coffee and some delicious cakes. The room was pleasantly just warm enough, very comfortable and perfect for a very tired traveller. Breakfast was magnificent on both mornings and one really didn't need lunch afterwards. This is probably not one of the cheaper accommodation prospects in the area but you get what you pay for. Strongly recommended!

Best B&B - Rating 5/5

Norton House is an exceptionally good B&B and highly recommended. Very clear directions to get there and lovely welcome with tea and cake- this is ideal after a long drive. Rooms (Ross and Doward)have character and are spacious, comfortable and well equipped with lots of extras including:tea/coffee/fairtrade hot chocolate, mineral water, biscuits, fruit,toiletries, hairdryer,fan, hot water bottles, TV and radio. Lovely cosy lounge with fireplace,books,newspapers,games. Every afternoon/evening homemade cakes were left out for guests to help themselves. The lemon cake, brownies and flapjacks were all delicious and lovely to return to after a day out. There was a good collection of maps and local information leaflets.Breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit, cereals (about 15 types), yoghurt, dried fruit, juices, homemade bread/toast, homemade jams, plentiful tea/coffee and then delicious full English cooked to order or alternative cooked choice. The banana pancakes with maple syrup were lovely and came in very generous portions - great to have after an early morning run! The owners (Jayne and Bill) are very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the local area and gave good advice about the many things to see and do. We enjoyed walking on Doward Hill and by the Wye, Symmonds Yat, Ross on Wye, Llanthony Priory/ Capel y Finn route to Hay, visiting Hay, and the Golden Valley. Easy to park and free wi-fi. Locationis great;very quiet, nice walks from door, easy to walk to river and pubs for evening meals (Old Court Hotel and Ferryman Inn both very good)but also convenient for A40. House is attractive with stream in garden. Wye valley is beautiful and good for walking. We stayed 3 nights in May but it would also be cosy and comfortable in winter.We chose Norton House partly on the basis of its good reviews and it certainly lived up to and even surpassed them.

I have stayed at Norton House several times, and it's always my first choice when I need to stay near Wyastone Concert Hall for recordings. It's a beautiful old cottage, with many original features and tastefully furnished rooms, but also with up-to-date amenities such as digital TVs and WiFi. Bill and Jayne Lapping couldn't be more welcoming or helpful, and they serve an excellent breakfast with a wide choice and carefully selected ingredients.

My family stopped at Norton for two nights last week-end.We were warmly welcome by the owner and offered us exceptionally good care during our stay.We enjoyed the typical English B&B breakfast which are cooked by the owner, Bill and Jean and the ambiance of our accommodation, the King Size bed room.It is well decorated with typical English farm house decor.We were also impressed by the amount of courtesy extended to us.My daughter, a young architect, was even fond of the architecture of the buildings and the garden. I will certainly return to Norton if I visit Monmouth again and I have no hesitation to recommend to my friends and family if they want accommodation in Monmouth, Ross-on-Wye and nearby.Overall, Norton is a successful and well managed B&B.Julian Leung

I happily recommend Norton house as a lovely B&S to stay at, in a beautiful part of the UK.We stayed in a really nice room in the old part of the house (built in the 1600's I think). The room was well furnished, and comfortable. We were offered tea and cake on arrival, and lovely home made muffins on the following day. The breakfasts were great (try the American Blueberry pancakes!). And our hosts were also really nice and helpful - providing local guide books and help with directions and traffic conditions.Also the location was fabulous - right next to the amazingly senic River Wye, and neighbouring Ross On Wye and Monmouth.A fantastic, and well priced place to stay.

With the sun shining and a long weekend ahead of us, all we needed was a high quality place to stay the night. And that is exactly what we found at Norton House. Jayne and Bill were the perfect host and hostess and they made both of us feel welcome. The standard of accommodation was of good quality and helped us feel relaxed. Bill advised us of the local pubs and restaurants and on his recommendation we headed off to the Saracens Head at Symonds Yat East. Good food but at half term rather a lot of kids orming round the pub. However when we got back to Norton House the atmosphere was calm and relaxed and after a good night's sleep we enjoyed an excellent full English, courtesy of Jayne. I can strongly recommend this B and B and it certainly deserves a 5 star rating.Peter and Corinne

We have just returned from a lovely two night stay at Norton House.Bill and Jayne were the perfect hosts - very friendly and helpful with tips on local walks, places to eat, as well as leaving lovely treats for the guests in the lounge such as home baked brownies! Jayne's breakfasts were delicious and there is plenty of choice of what you'd like to eat. The bedrooms are very cosy and comfortable and it's like a home away from home feel which is perfect for a relaxing break.There are plenty of stunning country and river walks nearby, and a trip to Monmouth or Ross-on-Wye is only a 5 minute drive away, where there are many good eateries.Bill can advise you on local pubs which serve great evening meals within walking distance if you don't want to drive too.Tintern is only a few miles south;a truly stunning setting next to the river, with the Abbey an interesting and pretty excursion well worth a few hours.I can't recommend Norton House highly enough for a perfect break in beautiful surroundings with perfect hosts.
