"Cosy Holiday Home"
We had a lovely break and really enjoyed staying in this cosy and well equipped cottage.Deborah had thought of everything and we were greeted by an enormous Victoria Sandwich, wine, milk, flowers and even doggy treats for Buddy our Retriever.
The weather was not particularly warm as you would expect in May so we made good use of the log burner which was already laid for us.
There were loads of walks direct from the cottage so we didn't have to use the car every day.
There is a large Tesco in Lydney and a Co-op in Coleford which has a large variety of take-aways (if you can't be bothered to cook) but we enjoyed cooking in the cottage and sitting in the conservatory. We will be returning as soon as we possibly can!

I dont know where to begin, I could write so much about this wonderful property and its really thoughtful and caring owner.
We enjoyed all of the little treats left for us by Deborah, well the cake was not that little and was really appreciated. The jug of flowers in the conservatory was a nice touch and the log burner in the conservatory made it a great place to "chill", not the right word considering how toasty it got in there with the burner going, but I think you catch my drift.
The dog beds, blankets, towels, and treats were appreciated along with the log burner by our dogs Mickey and Sheenagh. Thank you Deborah for your kind concern about Mickey.
We were so comfy, we really did not want to go home, it was such a lovely cottage to stay in and the area is outstanding.
We would recommend to anybody looking for some peace and quiet and getting some fresh air in their lungs in the Forest.
It would take a lot to beat for value for money and quality of facilities, clean, comfy bed, lovely bed linen and towels and just a great place.
So glad we found it and we will be back!
