“A perfect retreat” Lovely modern studio and very well equipped, situated down a very long farm track (take it steady, unmade road), Great for a weekend getaway to unwind with walks straight from the door and only 10 minutes by car to Forest cycle trails. Monmouth is an easy drive for an afternoon's shopping and sightseeing. If you need a little gem to stay in for peace and relaxation in beautfiful countryside, then Little Owl is the place to go.
“A really great place to stay” Wibdon Barn is situated perfectly for you to explore Wales and the Forest of Dean, easy to find and not far from the Severn Bridge with great views over the river. It's a spacious house which is well kitted out and the pool is a real added bonus.
There is plenty to do at the house, especially for the children as there is a large secure garden with a play area and the owners were very friendly and helpful.
The nearest town is only a few minutes up the road so you can get all your supplies and it's the perfect base to explore the local attractions from such as the Forest of Dean, Puzzlewood (A must) and Chepstow castle.
I will definitely be going back again and I would recommend it to anyone looking to staying this part of the country
“Lovely place to stay. Great unexpected find.” This area was new to us and we were on a short trip visiting a relative about half an hour away. We did not have time to explore but would love to return and do so. The accommodation was clean, comfortable, peaceful and attractive. We had our two dogs with us and we all enjoyed our stay. The orchard was lovely and the signed path field walks across the road very convenient and enjoyable - lovely views. Locals we met on walks were very friendly.
“Lovely cottage & fanstastic stay” Booked as a family holiday away for my parents 65th birthday. My parents were very impressed with the cottage and found the attention to detail by Sue the owner outstanding. The cottage has spacious rooms and all the amenities needed for a stress free trip away. You don't have to travel far to find spectacular walks and with a short drive you will discover some excellent pubs with great food and drink. Some great memories were made during the trip and my parents are looking forward to their next visit to the cottage. Thank you Sue for a wonderful stay.
“a lovely located cottage.” We were one week at Wren cottage and it was a very nice week. The cottage is very nice, well equiped at a very quiet location.
You can hear the birds, the sheep, and the pheasant who returned every night under our window.
From here you can walk a lot and also visite places as Cardiff.
It is a nice place when you want a quiet relaxed stay.
“One word- stunning!” This little cottage was absolutely perfect! Beautiful on the outside and just as beautiful inside. Tranquil and peaceful- the only sound around were the birds! The cottage had EVERYTHING- I was extremely pleased that there was also a hairdryer! The log burner was just wonderful- I made the most of sitting on the sofa, with a blanket and absorbing the amazing smell coming from the burner. Really couldn't fault the cottage at all- it was spotless, a lovely shower, REALLY comfortable bed and a great big duvet for the slightly chilly nights- perfect!
I booked this with my partner as a birthday get away. I've always wanted to stay in a cottage in the Cotswolds and I am so glad that I chose Robin Cottage! It was the perfect minibreak and I had a lovely birthday.
“Perfect location for a relaxing break!” Lovely welcome (and cake !) from Michelle, and lots of useful information about Silhouette Cottage and local area. The cottage is very comfortable and everything you might need is provided. The property is full of character, modernised very sympathetically and is both homely and pristine. The garden is beautiful, enhanced by the view of a lovely field of well behaved sheep next door! As if all this were not enough, The White Horse pub is just a stones throw away. It is characterful, quirky and friendly. It also serves the best food we have eaten for a long time ( very reasonably priced). We also enjoyed cooking in Michelle's well equipped kitchen and eating in her lovely conservatory, though our efforts didn't quite come up to the standards of the chef at the White Horse!
The cottage is conveniently situated for food shopping 5 minutes drive into Coleford. There's loads of potential for days out using Silhouette cottage as a base, or just mooching about aimlessly in the stunning countryside.
We had a very enjoyable holiday and would recommend Silhouette Cottage to anyone. Thanks, Michelle

Mireystock Forest Retreat With Private Indoor Heated Pool
Family Christmas Break
We were a family of three generations and all had a wonderful stay at Mireystock. The house was very well equipped and we had no problems at all in cooking a full Christmas dinner. The provision of slip on shoes to travel backwards and forwards to the annex, together with bath robes, slippers and pool towels was a thoughtful touch. We enjoyed spending time in the bar and playing on the full sized snooker table. We also enjoyed walks from the house and were fortunate enough to spot a wild boar in the forest. The house was spotlessly clean and cosy and Lucy was very helpful, both prior, during and after our break. We would have no hesitation in recommending Mireystock, we had a lovely time, thank you. …
