“Extremely well-appointed accomodation in a lovely spot”
Reviewed September 13, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I stayed in Nuthatch for a week in August. The surrounding area is lovely - lots of places to walk and visit nearby, and the location of the cottage is great too. It has been fitted out with great care, and the owners are friendly people. They were happy for my dog to come with me, and when my son joined me for a couple of nights provided a fold-out bed and bedding for him.

I hope to visit here again.

“Lovely accommodation & great location”
Reviewed August 14, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at the Nuthatch cottage for a week and really our holiday.
Marion & Simon were very helpful with the booking and arrangements. The website mentions the driveway through the woods which is a bit unnerving the first time you go up it but is easily manageable.
The accommodation is well equipped with almost everything we needed and is comfortable. There are also some extras, such as the pizza oven, a sun patio and even a private wood for walking in.
Ross is about 3 miles away with plenty of shops, if you don't wish to drive it takes about 30 minutes to cycle or about 1 hour to walk over the fields.
There is plenty to see nearby, we found Goodrich Castle was well worth a visit, and Marion & Simon were always happy to give advice.
The mobile signal was poor, as you might expect in a rural area, so the wifi provided was very useful.
We would happily return for another visit.

Such a beautiful place to stay and so peaceful. My little boy and dog loved exploring the surrounding woodlands. Marion and Simon were so welcoming. Milk and flapjacks on arrival. Delicious! We had such a lovely time and made good use of the pizza oven and chimnea. Nuthatch was cosy, pretty and clean. I would highly recommend and am looking forward to going back soon and exploring the area more .A haven from the busy world! Thank you

“Fantastic Find!”
Reviewed May 24, 2015 for a stay in July 2014

We had a fantastic stay at Nuthatch Cottage in July 2014 on a self-catering basis. We were looking for somewhere peaceful to re-charge our batteries and found just what we needed. Simon and Marion provided wonderful hospitality without being intrusive. On arrival we were given freshly laid eggs (which were the best we’ve ever tasted) and homemade cake which was extremely thoughtful and much appreciated. Simon is an excellent authority on birds. This would make a great place to stay for those wanting to see Peregrine Falcons, Goshawk and Buzzards from Symonds Yat Rock, or throughout the wooded slopes of the River Wye, along with Kingfishers, and in the summer, Nightjars.

Simon and Marion rent their own canoes and kayaks and we were able to have a wonderful day experiencing the River Wye from Ross-on-Wye to Symonds Yat by kayak. Simon ensured we were well equipped and personally took us to the start and collected us from the finish.

Nuthatch Cottage is an excellent base for the Forest of Dean and we hope to return in the near future to enjoy both the area and this delightful accommodation. Marion and Simon also offer bed and breakfast in very well presented accommodation.

“Wonderfully calming environment to rest your body and soul...”
Reviewed May 8, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We almost dont want to tell you about this place because we feel like it our little secret! It has become our favorite get away. Marion and Simon have created an idillic place to relax and enjoy Ross on Wye and all that the Forest of Dean has to offer.

This time we had fun playing with the pizza oven, with mixed results, but with a good slug of local cider we barely noticed the chared crust.

Just great.... But don't tell anyone!
