“Fab cottage!”
Reviewed March 27, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We could not have been happier with our choice for a short break. The cottage is just lovely, clean, cosy and comfortable.

We stayed for four nights and ate in, using the lovely kitchen, as we loved being there so much!

Elaine is a wonderful hostess; kind and helpful. We will definitely return

“Perfect little cottage for a much needed break away”
Reviewed March 5, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The pictures do not do the cottage justice, it is so cosy and well appointed with everything you need for a comfortable and relaxed break. Elaine was so welcoming, we felt right at home from the first minute, and the Welsh Cakes were a lovely touch. We will be back, as it's perfectly located for the Forest of Dean and lovely walks.

Elaine you have a little gem here - dare I say it, it's possibly under priced too!

“Lovely stay, lovely hosts.”
Reviewed October 16, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Pleasant settings, good facilities as described. Attentive hosts- homemade treats, milk and tea/coffee on arrival was a lovely extra. Great base to explore Forest of Dean, Bristol, Cardiff and surrounding areas. Access to the cottage across the busy road can be tricky in traffic and at night but this of course is not the fault of the hosts! Stayed in a party of three, I think a fourth person would probably be a bit of a squeeze.

Many thanks for the review, your comments are much appreciated. Agreed, 4 adults would be a bit of a squeeze, 2 adults and 2 younger children fit better!

“An excellent place to stay”
Reviewed June 3, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This is a very comfortable place to stay - good facilities and spotlessly clean. We were lucky with the weather so didn't much need the wifi, TV or log-burner, but they're all there if you need them!
The kitchen is well set up and the Welsh cakes we were greeted with were delicious.There was plenty to do in the area - walks, views, gardens, museums, good cafes, restaurants and pubs and even the chance of a segway ride in the forest!
Highly recommended on every count.
