“Didn't work for us, no kitchen limited space, tiny dining table for two only in each room”
Reviewed October 5, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We wouldn't have booked here if my husband had realised there is no kitchen, to be fair this is stated on website. How anyone would manage with children I don't know as only room for two at dining table, there is a small table in each bedroom. Washing up in the bathroom is unpleasant and difficult.
The view of the property is misleading as entry to the property is at the back.
The place is clean and the bed is comfortable but the layout doesn't work, the only way to watch tv is from the bed. The location is lovely, very quiet overlooking fields.

I am very sorry the accommodation didn't suit you. As you say it is clearly stated on the website that there is no kitchen and that there are two rooms and a bathroom only. We offer a microwave and a small fridge to offer more flexibility to our guests. The table in the larger room does fold out to accommodate 2 -4 people. We have had a lot of very happy couples with children who can eat in their room whilst their young child/ren are sleeping. There are also lots of lovely local pubs and cafes for breakfast etc or you can order a take away. The television can easily be positioned so that you can watch it whilst sitting on the sofa which again we provide to offer our guests more comfort. Guests enter at the back of the property which is again clearly shown on the photos but benefit from the lovely veiws from the front of the house, looking out onto the fields and sheep. They also have their own seating area at the back of the property where they can see rare bats if they are lucky. I am glad you enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and peace and quiet.

“Just what was needed”
Reviewed June 21, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Peacefully quiet, no hassles, no dramas. Far enough away to feel secluded but close enough to civilisation to be left feeling you're in the middle of nowhere

“Great Base”
Reviewed March 11, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We visited in March, which wasn't the best due to constant rain, but we were happy to find the place was in a pretty setting with a lovely outlook. The owners have created a lovely place to get away from it all. We stayed with friends and it was kind of fun, congregating in the bigger bedroom to have breakfast in the morning. The decor and set up are all to a high standard. Lots of little touches, making it a home from home. Very small negatives were, the bedroom our friends stopped in is two single beds put together (we were told this in advance and so wasn't a problem for us). Also when we came back after our evening out, there isn't anywhere comfortable to sit and chat. There are chairs, but these are the sort that you sit at a table on. Again don't let this put you off, as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay an found the owner helpful and hospitable. A lovely stay and would recommend.

“Lovely Country Getaway”
Reviewed January 7, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We really enjoyed our two nights at this cottage. It was peaceful and quiet, within easy access of the Forest of Dean. We were able to walk to the pub and the village of Lydney. There was plenty of leaflets and information about local attractions and a helpful welcome letter. The cottage was delightful, inside and out with a lot of attention to detail to make our stay more comfortable. Loved the shower. Pity that there is no kitchen area to prepare food and clean the dishes. We made use of the old DVDs provided and of course the kettle for a cuppa.
Would definitely stay again and have already recommended to friends.

“Good value, good location, quiet, peaceful, well presented.”

people found this review helpful

We enjoyed a short autumn break at this old mill cottage. Situated down a quiet country road (look for the sign to Aylburton Common) on the edge of a farm, very quiet, but a few minutes' walk to the village. Two sizeable bedrooms with modern shower, facilities included several towels, jar of coffee, TV, microwave, fridge, and some crockery, cutlery and glasses, and cleaning products, plus children's toys and some old books and DVDs. All clean and well presented. Perfectly located as a base for touring around the Forest of Dean, via the Cotswolds or Wye Valley. Couple of friendly pubs in the village and superstore in the next town.
