“Lovely accommodation in a beautiful part of the country!”
Reviewed November 3, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

The studio apartment is lovely for a getaway. It was incredibly clean and well equipped. The hosts seemed to have thought of everything to make the stay as enjoyable as possible. The location is beautiful and there are lovely walks straight from the front door. We had slight difficulty trying to find the property as we were travelling in the dark and it is on a single track... but we got there in the end and it was so worth it!

“Cosy, well equipped cottage in a peaceful setting”
Reviewed September 28, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Little Owl is the perfect base for exploring the Forest of Dean, and further afield if you wish. The cottage is open plan so it feels quite spacious inside, considering its actual size. It is very well equipped and is cosy and warm. Despite the bumpy track to reach the property, the setting is beautiful, surrounded by fields with views of the hills. The wildlife garden is a lovely feature. Local amenities in Mitcheldean are within easy reach, just a few minutes drive away.

Thank you for your kind comments. Little Owl is in fact a bit of a "Tardis". It was lovely to meet you both and we hope to see you again one day in the future.

“Little Owl is a Little Gem”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Lovely little place to stay in the Forest of Dean. Plenty of great countryside to take in on the door step. Little Owl is a small but practical and well thought out accommodation. Cosy and welcoming.

“Lovely, peaceful retreat”
Reviewed February 10, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Lovely little studio, with brilliant use of space. Feels so spacious inside and was lovely and warm. Great base to explore the forest, and definitely would recommend a car to get the most out of the stay. We just wish we could have stayed longer!

“Best holiday stay ever”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The views are fantastic. We arrived on a rainy night, and the fog in distance on top of the mountain was simply beautiful. The next a few days were sunny, we therefore enjoyed a different scenery. We spent the first a few days to enjoy the surrounding area and Little Owl is in a good location, easy to reach to forest and towns and villages.

The studio is beautifully presented and very clean and has everything we need. The bed is very very comfy. All other things are clearly of good quality. There were even presents in the fridge which we didn't expect. I loved the chocolate. Thank you.

I'd recommend Little Owl to everyone and we will definitely come back.

“Another great, relaxing stay at Little Owl.”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Our second stay at Little Owl and didn't disappoint us. Very relaxing! The peace and quiet is amazing. Did plenty of walks with our dog who loves the place. Looking forward to our next visit to see in the New Year.
