“Peaceful Cottage in perfect location.”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Well appointed cottage with everything you require, with home from home feel. Lovely well kept gardens, with plenty of birds and wildlife to keep you occupied. Clive and Kaeren made us very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble, always on hand for directions to local eateries and places of interest, even finding me an emergency dentist. The location is perfect for touring the Cotswolds, Malvern Hills and the Forest of Dean.

“Excellent accommodation and incredibly welcoming owners.”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Very enjoyable break with the family, perfect for our children who quickly made friends with other children and loved exploring beautiful garden with the pond, seeing all the new baby ducklings and moorhens. Great base to explore the Forest of Dean. Clive and his wife couldn't have made us more welcome and we would recommend this place.

“A surprisingling peaceful and pleasant holiday in a good location.”

person found this review helpful

The bungalow was spacious and provided everything needed for a good holiday. It was spotlessly clean and attractively furnished. The large lounge cum diner overlooked the lovely garden and pleasant scenery in the background. Also we had the pleasure of watching ducks (and ducklings), squirrels and a variety of birds every day on our patio. You had the impression of being in the heart of the countryside but with a "convenient" shop within walking distance. Also you were within easy reach of a main road. The owners, Clive and Kaeren Wilkes were very friendly and helpful in every way. We can heartily recommend this property for an first class holiday.
