“Good cottage on the edge of the forest” Cottage is a stones throw from the edge of the forest and there are some good walks from the cottage. If you use the car there is plenty to see locally. Cottage is comfortable and reasonably well equipped, well priced and dog friendly. Owners very welcoming. Minor observation, we like a firm mattress but the main bedroom has a fairly soft set up. Personnel preference and others may like the reverse. Managed to see the boars up close, deer and I think a goshawk but that was a brief encounter. The boars are big so while during the day they seem to keep away from the main paths, if you use the smaller more remote ones would keep dogs on the lead, they will lose any physical encounter. Cinderford is a functional town rather than drop dead gorgeous. Had a great time and enjoyed our stay as did our friends who stayed with us
“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.
“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.
“Beautifully equiped cottage, in a great location owned by some very welcoming people” We were the first paying guests to stay in the cottage. We had a wonderful time and was made to feel very welcome. I would definately reccomend this cottage to any couple wanting a few days away. The cottage is extremely well equipped and considering we were the first guests, there were no teething problems. Little extras like tea coffee sugar and fresh milk were welcomed thoughtfull touches.
We enjoyed our stay very much and hope to come back one day. Many thanks to Gill & Chris.
“Absolutely Perfect” I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Rose Cottage. Joanna was a perfect host. Arrangements were easy and thorough. All the amenities were first-rate. The cottage is lovingly furnished. The village setting is storybook. The cottage is a perfect place to unwind, relax, spend time with family and friends, go for lush country walks in the Cotswolds, enjoy reading or games by the fireside, head out to nearby pub or restaurant. Also the garden-like setting outside the cottage is wonderful for relaxing outside as well. This is a can't-miss destination if you are looking for a getaway in the English Cotswolds.
“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.
“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

Lovely spacious accommodation in a great location
Lovely and clean, well equipped and spacious - three of us had plenty of room to spread out! Although the temp outside dropped to 0, it was still nice and warm. And lots of thoughtful touches that help whilst on holiday. The area also has lots to do, and some nice pubs and restaurants. The Miners Arms down the road is 10 mins walk and serves lovely food. …
