“A little slice of heaven”
Reviewed May 17, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Perfection. Quirky. Serene. Peaceful. Hilly! Just some of the words to best describe Wren Cottage and it's location. You need a car. And to be quite mobile-it's a trek from the house up a steep incline back to the car. If you're looking for a spacious house, this isn't for you. It's tiny but perfectly formed. The gardens are havens of tranquility. The surrounding woodland is stunningly peaceful. The walks are amazing. Wake up to the sounds of lambs, a cuckoo, pheasants, a cockerel, even the donkey in the field behind the cottage. No traffic noise. No people noise. Just peace and quiet. The cottage has everything you need-well equipped kitchen, log fire, very comfy bed, maps, books, wifi, TV, a welcome package of local produce, you can buy eggs from the farm 100 yards away. Oh, and did I mention the peace and quiet?! Quite simply the best place me, my OH and our beagle have stayed. Ever.

“Stunning location, perfect cottage for two”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My partner and I stayed for five nights in Little Wren cottage in March 2014. The cottage is situated in a serene area which was ideal for the peace and quiet we were seeking. The cottage is very well maintained; there is an exceptionally well equipped kitchen, a cosy living room (with a log fire) and a comfortable bedroom upstairs. Upon arrival, it was very easy to obtain they key to the cottage and in the cottage, we were treated to a complimentary bottle of local Gloucestershire Apple juice and confectionary.

The owners Lis and Karen are very friendly and are willing to give tips and advice on things to do in the local area.

The area surrounding the cottage is beautiful and within a short driving distance to many viewpoints and historic sites.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this cottage as a place to stay when visiting the Wye Valley and Gloucestershire.

“Beautiful Cottage, well worth the stay.”
Reviewed January 18, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We booked the cottage fore a quiet, spontaneous getaway. The cottage was fantastically equipped and full of character. The stove was a lovely addition and very cosy (might need a bit more practice at making a fire!) The location was perfect, overlooking rolling fields and the forest of Dean, waking up to this on a frosty, sunny morning was amazing! The owner left some lovely fudge and local apple juice which was a nice touch. We would definitely recommend it to couples wanting to get away for very reasonable prices. We barely put any money in the electricity meter as the house is very eco-friendly and has energy saving bulbs etc. . The only piece of advice would be to take the track road to the cottages very slowly as it has 'a few' holes! Thank you for a great stay - we will be back!
