“A lovely place to stay”
Reviewed May 30, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The cottage was lovely with such a beautiful garden and really friendly hosts. It is a good base to explore the Cotswolds, Forest of Dean, and the Malverns. The children loved playing in the garden and seeing all of the wildlife coming up to the cottage doors. We would definitely come again.

“Lovely peaceful setting and very hospitable owners!”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We've just returned from a 4 night stay in Orchard Cottage and we had a lovely time. The accommodation was spotless, modern, bright and well equipped. The large garden provided hours of entertainment for our two (6 and 8 year) old boys who loved cycling around the large pond. Watching the many different birds, ducks and moor hens was lovely and the owners were perfect hosts! It was also a perfect base for visiting the 'forest of dean' and the many nearby attractions including close proximity to Gloucester. Highly recommended!

“A very pleasant location and a beautiful setting”

The bungalow was immaculate and very spacious, it had all you need for a short break. A beautiful dining/lounge area with views to the pond. Very enjoyable to watch the ducks and many birds on the patio. It is a lovely location seemingly remote yet a shop within walking distance and road links easily accessible. Clive and Karren were very friendly and helpful. It is a lovely bungalow to stay in.
