“Thanks Carol”
Reviewed July 1, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Sorry it has taken so long to get round to this review. Me, Sam and Ossie had a lovely time even though we got lost in the woods by Symmonds Yat! Everything was perfect; the fire, the location, the cottage was clean and tidy. Exceptional value and we made a load of new sheep friends. We will be back, would not hesitate to recommend. If you are on the fence, don't be, just book!
Love Tom and Sam (and Ossie) x

Thank you. It was great fun to host you and hear your exploits. A good job you had Ozzie your guide dog to lead you home.

The sheep are missing you! Seriously, do come and visit us again soon.

Thank you to carol and Tony for making us feel at home in their beautiful cottage . We loved it and would truly recommend staying here. If you have dogs it's great , just down the lane you come into fields after fields and it's so peaceful.
Thank you again

Mr and Mrs Andrews were a very special couple to host. Thoughtful, kind with a great sense of humour and a deep love of the forest. They are intrepid explorers and a real delight to host. Fabulous people.

Thank you all. After you have visited us I always feel like getting on my bike cycling for miles (coming back with the rosy glow!), then walking into the Forest to view the wildlife and finally having a Forest adventure.
You are definitely inspirational and I look forward to welcoming you back.

“Even Better.. if that can be possible”
Reviewed May 8, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This was our second visit to what we call " Our bit of heaven" .. and once again it was just that.
Welcomed back by Carol and Tony , the owners, we felt like we were coming home.
The cottage was a lovely as before with new touches such a new cushions, black out blinds, fresh flowers in the bedrooms.. all the things that make this a step up from a run of the mill letting .
Not that Badgers End was ever " run of the mill " .
The whole property is loved and kept in excellent condition and has such a wonderful feel .
We were able to have an extended stay on the last time, but still not long enough.
Both my partner and I have fallen in love with the whole area and will be back as soon as we can , would we stay anywhere else .. not a chance. So when you book up leave room for us ..

“A Lovely Week”
Reviewed May 6, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

I was worried this cottage would be too small for us - 4 adults (two quite tall), 2 dogs and one baby - but it worked out well.

Carol and Tony were great hosts and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed.

Gorgeous location on the Scowles above Coleford where we got out provisions. Fantastic bakery - The Crusty Loaf and a Co-op etc.

Close to Symonds Yat, Forest of Dean and Wye Valley walks. Visits to Tintern, Monmouth and The Three Choirs Vineyard in Newent which was superb.

You can't really go wrong with this area - stunning countryside. Relaxing, lovely cottage and location.

Thank you, You were a pleasure to host. Finley was fabulous and you couldn't help but love the dogs. You squeezed a huge amount in plus house hunting. I'd love you as my next door neighbours, fingers crossed!

“Fabulous cottage, location,hosts,and weather.”
Reviewed April 29, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The cottage was lovely, everything you need in a home from home. Lovely bed linen, fluffy towels.The only sound was bird song. Carol and Tony were great hosts, so much local knowledge and information. The cottage is such a fabulous location for most attractions in the Forrest of Dean.

Thank you Heather and Christine. There is nothing like spending a holiday with an old friend in a cosy cottage. You walked miles and had quite a few memorable adventures! It was a real pleasure to host you both, there are plenty more adventures to experience, and as always a warm fire and a glass of wine to come home to.
