"Great place to base your holiday to the Forset of Dean"
A friend and I stayed at the house for are cycling trip to the forest of dean. The accommodation is modern and very clean. Separate entrance via a private courtyard nice, comfy beds and a nice lounge which opens on to the private patio which is great of socialising.
The forest of Dean is only a few mins drive away which was great for us. If we were to go to Dean again cycling defiantly would stay again.
Really glad you enjoyed your stay and the weather was kind to you for your cycling. Think you need to come again to explore a bit more of the Forest of Dean!

"Excellent accommodation, hosts and surrounding countryside"
Very comfortable cottage with everything you could wish for provided. Lovely secluded patio which was an ideal sun trap. The surrounding countryside is beautiful with lots of long and short walks throughout the forest as well as plenty of other sight-seeing places of interest. Would definitely come back to the forest in the future and would stay at the cottage again.
Really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and had the time to explore the surrounding countryside! Look forward to seeing you again in the future!

"Great cosy getaway base to explore Forest of Dean and Wye Valley"
We had such a lovely break, and we were very impressed at how welcoming the cottage felt. Had some great walks, and in the grey wintery weather, we couldn't wait to come back and cosy down with a cup of tea! Everything was so clean, and I especially loved the little touches that really made it home from home!
Thank you for your lovely comments. We always strive to make people feel at home when they visit us. Hope to see you again soon!

"Homely, cute, great location!"
I took my partner here for her birthday. We stayed for 2 nights and really wished we had booked a third by the time we were leaving. We're a young couple in our mid/late 20s and found it was everything we wanted. The owners were more than welcoming. The location was a very short 10/15min drive from everything you'd want to see, such as Puzzlewood, Clerewell Caves, The Secret Forest, Symonds Yat and Symonds Rock, etc. It has a very nice walk of its own 1/2 a mile at the rear of the cottage called May Hills. You'd need to drive 5 mins to it though just to save your legs for the actual walk. Very beautiful on a clear evening at sun set, with some wild horses, it really was lovely!
A 100yrds down the road was a cracking little country pub called the Farmer's Boy Inn! you dont need to stray any further that there on an evening really as you can walk there, have a few drinks and a meal and walk back. The Staff are very friendly and attentive, and the food is second to none! We had theire 'famous' 2in1 pie of coliflour cheese with Steak and guiness which we thought was amazing, only to be out done on our second evening when we ordered the 8oz fillet from their specials menu....I cannot find the words to decribe how nice this meal was... all i can say is, ORDER IT and find out for yourself! It is testiment to a pub when it is consistantly busy every evening! We were lucky to get in on our first night as we never booked, but the staff made room for us!! :)
We will definately look at staying here again the next time we decide to visit the Forest of Dean!
So good to hear that you enjoyed yourselves so much! Of course we'd love to see you again. As you mentioned,there are so many other places to visit. We are so centrally situated for Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and South Wales. Look forward to hearing from you!
