I have just had the most relaxing break ever at the cottage. Amazing views on your door step and location. It was so peaceful. Seeing the horses each morning trotting past the gate was fab.. Hot tub was superb. The welcome pack was an added bonus. Lovely friendly family. Will def be going back.

“Perfect Location, Wonderful accommodation”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a wonderful week in the Forest of Dean. The accommodation was perfect for us. Our kids enjoyed sharing the bedroom and we loved the log fire. We went everyday in the spa. The location is perfect as it is closely to many great attraction of the forest. The forest is on the doorstep and you don't need a car to get to it. The house is in a very quite location and it is extremely save for small kids to run around and explore. They enjoyed the farm and the animals (dogs, horses and chickens ....). The owners are very very friendly and close by to help you out in case you need anything.

“Super!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

A really nice place to stay, based on a farm, and well looked after by a lovely young family. The accommodation has everything you need, and the goodies supplied on arrival (especially the fresh eggs) are a bonus! Hot tub is great even in Feb. The local pub (yards away) the Dog and Muffler does great food - do book though esp at weekends.
We have been twice now and there is loads to do in the local area. We have been to mountain bike (mini downhill series is just down the road) but with young kids. There are loads of forestry car parks and centres and bike tracks, a super adventure playground, cafes and loads of outdoor stuff to do. And the thought of returning to the hot tub.....!

“excellent”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

myself, husband, 13 year old daughter and dog, enjoyed a short break at The Acorns, cannot say enough how relaxing and perfect the holiday was, we all came away feeling really refreshed, although you are attached to part of the owners house you really are very private, there was nothing we did not like about this place, the low ceiling the creaky boards all added to the character of the house, the Hot tub is one of the inflatable types (which we did not think was going to be any good) but infact it was perfect for the property, and very comfortable. The house had everything you could want and the garden was perfect for the dog, we will certainly be going back again next year.

“Loved it!!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The cottage is in a great location for enjoying the forest, the cycle tracks and countryside on your doorstep and a pub around the corner! The owners couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful as well as leaving you to get on with your stay. All your basics were provided in your welcome package which was a nice touch and the cottage was very clean and homely. The hot tub was definitely a highlight and was very private!! All in all we had a lovely stay and would go back again!!
