Run by very nice people, the cottage is in a holiday complex but you don't notice this, there is a Tesco close by in Lydney for groceries, excellent for dogs as you are on the edge of the forest for dog walks.
Dean wood cottage Lydney, we booked for a walking holiday with our dog.
Very enjoyable stay with local pubs and takeaways near by.
Symonds Yat was our favourite.
Will definitely return as one week wasn't enough.
A small cottage, beautifully kitted out with all you might need, with the forest at the end of the garden, tucked away on a small site. Very quiet. For any lover of nature and long walks this is ideally situated. Thoroughly recommended. Owner very friendly and helpful.
The week we spent couldn't have been better - both us and our two dogs really enjoyed our stay in the Elaine & John's perfect little Cottage. So much thought has gone into this little gem. It was immaculate and comfortable with lots of local advice about things to do and places to see, and included dog-friendly activities and places to eat. Everything about this break, from the moment of booking to arriving back home went perfectly and hassle-free. The Cottage is an ideal base for exploring all the wonders of the Forest of Dean and it really felt like we were coming home every night, and not just to a holiday let. So peaceful and comfortable and perfectly maintained. Highly recommended.
We stayed in this cottage for 4 nights. It was ideal base to explore the forest area. The cottage was very clean and tidy. Very dog friendly with a dog supplies box for our use.
The enclosed garden was a bonus for our dogs. Nice walking from the cottage just a bit hilly on the way back.
We had a great time!
The cottage was very comfortable/spotlessly clean and situated in beautiful rural surroundings with amazing views. My husband and I were very pleasantly surprised and pleased to find ourselves located in these beautiful surroundings. The owners were both very nice/helpful friendly people. The estate they own ranges from camping/caravaning/cottages it is highly maintained, well run and spotlessly clean. I don't think they have forgotten anything that anyone might need/require to ensure the perfect holiday, They should feel very proud of their achievements.
I would reccommend this as a holiday/short break to anyone, especially those who love the company of their beloved pets. Our weimaraner 'Asha' loved her stay as much as my husband and I. We plan to make this a regular get away throughout the year as it has everything to offer on it's door step, making it the ideal place for all ages. Lazy days/ outdoor activities/dog friendly pubs that serve snacks and meals as well as many sightseeing trips at your fingertips. The forest is serene with many miles of walkways/ trails to explore. The village itself is beautiful and well worth walking around it's spread out surrounding the forest/countryside and the people are all very friendly and welcoming.
Our stay was perfect we loved it!
