Couldn't fault it, it was great, our own little private location quiet and perfect for our needs bed and fresh Breakfast basket, the bed was very comfortable, after a long drive we had a great nights sleep even through the rain storms...

Had a very pleasant stay with a warm and welcoming from the owner Carrie. A very Clean and tidy 'Self Catering' bungalow with all the facilities you require. Welcoming breakfast basket a very nice touch for the first days, enough for two, which lasted two days. An excellent place to stay and relax. Plenty to do around the surrounding areas,... More

It says Bed & Breakfast at the top, it isn't. As stated by the last reviewer, there is a breakfast hamper provided for the first day. However; it is far from generous, not even a bottle of orange juice but that aside it is a lovely bungalow in a good location. It is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. If you... More

I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Littledean. You are quite correct that the accommodation is self catering as shown when you booked it. I'm sorry that you did not find the breakfast basket quite as fulsome as you would have liked but it is self catering accommodation and the basket which comprises fresh home baked bread,eggs,milk,butter,preserves,muesli and other...

After reading the reviews on here (all bar the one talking about sharing this with others, which you don't) me and my partner decided this would be a nice independent retreat. Within an hour or 2 of booking, we received an email from the owner (Carrie) offering to make us bread as a welcome....Where else offers that kind of a... More

We arrived here on a miserable evening in March and were delighted to discover the amenities provided by this bed and breakfast. We enjoyed the spaciousness of this cottage, and after having spent several nights in regular bed and breakfast accommodation, it was nice to be able to sit in a comfortable chair to watch television! The breakfast basket was... More

A clean and comfortable cottage in a great location. Friendly and helpful owner. Lots of nice touches in the accommodation - brochures, maps, information folder, umbrellas, washing machine, dishwasher. It was lovely to have a breakfast hamper provided for the first morning and after that it was self catering in the well equipped kitchen. We were lucky enough to be... More

Thank you for your review of the self catering cottage. I''m not sure you stayed in our self catering accommodation. If you book a1 bedroom cottage for 1 or more nights you will have the sole use of the lounge and fully fitted kitchen and obviously will not be sharing any facilities. If you book a 2 bedroom cottage for... More

We spent a night here in December 2013 before heading to the River Cottage HQ. It was exactly what we needed. There was a friendly welcome right from the driveway and it seemed that the owners had tried hard to think of everything their guests might need (and succeeded!) Rooms were in a great, newly-built standalone bungalow, giving the guests... More

The room was clean, modern, comfortable and importantly - warm! As a single traveller I wasn't entirely comfortable in staying in an annex with several rooms accessed from the central foyer area, though this may not worry other travellers. My welcome wasn't quite so warm unfortunately, being left to stand outside in the rain while the landlady was fetched, who... More

Thank you got taking the time to leave a review. I am puzzled that you seem to have stayed last May when I think it is possible you stayed in November. I am sorry you did not like the separate accommodation which has just 2 bedrooms although you are right, in that many people do like being separate. You seem... More

What a delightful B&B this is. Extremely clean and well maintained with a very hospitable host. It was perfect having a separate purpose built cottage with our own entrance. Room had everything you'd need and a very comfy bed. Ensuite bathroom has a large shower. Nice lounge area to relax in as well. Delicious breakfast with local produce. Excellent value... More

We booked this B&B because it was close to River Cottage and we spent 3 nights here. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom modern and clean, but we were a little surprised that it's a freestanding cottage and not part of the main building. Breakfast was very good but we had to go around the back of the... More
