We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Sanders Cottage and found it well equipped and comfortable.
Sanders Cottage is situated opposite woodland which is accessed by a wooden bridge a two minute walk from the cottage.Cycle trails can be picked up easily from the cottage if you bring your own cycles.
The Forest of Dean is beautiful and we are so lucky that the Wye Valley is close by.There are buses but a car makes it easier to visit all the attractions available in the Forest of Dean and surrounding area.
Thank you for taking the time to review us.We value feedback from our guests.
