Nuthatch Cottage in the Forest of Dean is a hidden gem just waiting.............
We stayed for a week with our spaniel in July. The cottage is set in an amazing rural setting with amazing views from the property.
Inside the cottage was very clean. Well equipped with everything you need and has nice touches like towels for the dogs and tea, milk and cookies left for our arrival :)
The beds are very comfortable which for me I always struggle to find when going away.
One tiny negative is the wifi. I absolutely understand that it's very difficult to get wifi out in the middle of no where so their answer is to use a dongle which is perfectly fine. Problem is that it ran out half way through the week and we were without it for 3 days. For some people maybe not an issue and it's not like we can't survive but we rely on it for looking up walks, pubs to go to for lunch and google maps for seeing how far places are etc. It did get frustrating for us. Especially as most of the forest you don't get any kind of signal anyway. The owners did put more on the dongle for us for the last day. Like I said. A small negative for an overall amazing week and cottage that we would definitely come back to!! …
Cotswold Country Cottage
We wanted a relaxing family holiday and that is exactly what we got at this cottage
Clean, very well equipped cottage with fantastic views. This is a perfect dog walking area as well. The whole family were able to relax here. …
Wren Cottage; pet friendly with wood burner and bird hide in stunning location
Lovely, well equipped cottage overlooking the Forest of Dean and it's walks.
Well fitted out cottage with a log burner and up to date kitchen. Easy to find, down a farm track, and surrounded by the Forest of Dean. We loved the setting and the walks are easy to access. Saw our first snowdrops and think that this will be amazing place to be in the Spring, as more wild flowers emerge. Very peaceful and just what we wanted! …
BROOKBANK FOLLY, romantic, character holiday cottage, with a garden in
Very romantic & private. Pictures do not do this beautiful cottage justice
Beautifully crafted cottage, just like a fairytale. The pictures honestly do not do this place justice. If anything I would describe it as a picturesque re-imagination of "snow white & the seven dwarfs cottage" or a house scene from "the legend of zelda".
Owners leave you in peace, to your own devices and beautiful covers for the windows for extra privacy. A very romantic place in the middle of nowhere, only a few hamlet-like houses surrounding, a distance down the road & the woodland just behind for peaceful walks.
Perfect for a couple seeking a romantic getaway together. There are plenty of movies, board games and the remarkably quaint kitchen to keep oneself occupied.
Very warm interior (which is one of the major things I look for as I tend to get cold easily) and the very romantic fire place in the front room, complimented by the cow-skin rug, is very effective at keeping you warm on those winter nights, snuggling on the sofa with a movie!!!
We will definitely be returning! A romantic weekend I will never forget... …
Little Owl; welcoming, peaceful hideaway in stunning location!
A fabulous country retreat.
Stayed at Little Owl for 2 nights. Wish we had booked for longer. It was idyllic and gave us the peace and tranquillity we needed. Our neighbours were beautiful horses,sheep,goats,pigs and a donkey. Little Owl is compact but had everything we could have wished for. We were lucky enough to have stayed when the moon turned red and was able to watch it from the comfort of the living area through the Velux window. The only drawback to the holiday was the bumpy pot holed lane leading to Little Owl but staying there made the bumpy ride well worth it.
Karen made the booking very easy and made sure everything we needed was catered for.
Will definitely be returning. …
