Although we are nature lovers we do not have pets, and so we were a little aprehensive about the fact that they were welcomed here with previous guests. No worries here though, the place was spotlessly clean and had all the ameneties you would need for a comfortable stay. The cottage has recently been modernised to a very high standard. It has nice exposed oak features and the kitchen and bathroom are modern and well equipped. Probably the best aspect was the views of Flaxley valley and the abundant birds and wildlife. Owners, Tim and Vicky, were pleasant and unobtrusive, but always there if you needed them. Altogether it was a very pleasant experience.
This was a lovely family get away. Cottage beauitful. Owners dog and cats very friendly family loved seeing them. Cottage in stunning location and so close to gorgeous walks and the mines with Santa grotto made our trip.
Nuthatch Cottage has clearly lovingly been restored and maintained by the owners. Nothing has been skimped on and still the feel is so very comfortable. It has everything you may need. Beautiful location with amazing views across the valley. We were visited by so many varied birds. Lots to do within a short drive to different areas of the Forest of Dean.
I cannot recommend Nutchatch Cottage highly enough. The cottage itself is immaculate, with everything you could need for a perfect stay. The decor and furniture are of a very high standard, far superior to any holiday rental we have ever stayed in before. The cottage is located down an unmade road with unspoilt views across the valley, and we spent many happy hours watching the sheep and horses from the beautful garden with no noise except for the sounds of the various animals. Our three dogs were very content there and loved the garden and watching the birds on the feeder. We had a lovely Barbeque on the patio in the sunshine and our family who joined us were as impressed with the cottage as we were. We had some lovely walks through the wood and enjoyed the scenery in the Wye Valley, although Symonds Yat was rather crowded for our liking but nevertheless, very pretty. If you want a tranquil hideaway to recharge your batteries, then this is definitely the place for you. We would go back in a heartbeat.
We have just recommended Nuthatch to some friends, simply because everything was just perfect. Lovely setting, beautifully renovated property, easy walks into the Forrest, but most of all Vicki & Tim could not have been more welcoming.
We enjoyed 4 days in The Forrest of Dean in this comfortable, spotlessly clean, dog friendly perfect cottage with beautiful views. Good walks nearby. Would recommend Nuthatch cottage.
Fantastic 4 days in Nuthatch cottage. Lovely quiet property surrounded by beautiful countryside in the Forest of Dean. Felt very private and secluded, yet Tim & Vicki were responsive to questions and available if necessary, living close by. In the days we watched the birds and horses, in the evening the bats and listened to the owls and even heard deer barking in the forest on the other side of the valley. One morning we were treated to a fox and cub walking across the field next to us! Just perfect.
