“Perfect!!!!!”
Reviewed September 7, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

What a beautiful, clean and well kept cottage. So cozy and warm and beautiful surroundings. Did not need to ask for anything as we had no complaints at all. The views were breathtaking. Just myself, husband and the spoilt dog Betsy on this trip. Had so many walks into the forest. If your looking for a super clean relaxing break then I would highly recommend Nuthatch Cottage, for us it was simply perfect and the local residents were so friendly. Well done Tim on an amazing cottage that you have restored to perfection. Would definately come back to see you next year!!!!!

“The perfect place for us”
Reviewed September 1, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We made Nuthatch Cottage the center of our holiday or 2 weeks and a bit. It is such a gorgeous place, perfectly renovated with a great appreciation for detail. All rooms are setup very tastefully and functionally at the same time. We much enjoyed the open fire which we lit almost every evening particularly as constant supply of firewood was provided for a small charge. The beds were perfect for all four of us too.

Planning our trip through England, a place like Nuthatch cottage is exactly what we were hoping for. We are glad we found it.

Beautifully restored cottage; immaculately clean and tastefully furnished with really comfortable beds and everything you need for a wonderful holiday. Excellent outdoor space making the most of the views, wildlife, farm animals, birds and sun! Very convenient for local amenities, attractions and places to eat. We enjoyed a very relaxing few days and would definitely return. Thank you for an awesome stay.

Thankyou for taking the time to review your stay at Nuthatch Cottage.
We are so sorry to hear that your stay was marred by the lack of Internet access.
Using a dongle was our only way of providing Internet to the cottage and it is limited, this is explained in our Tripadvisor listing.
We do however provide a comprehensive folder of Pubs, Restaurants, Places to visit and Maps which has been added to over time by previous guests. Somewhat 'old fashioned' it does serve as a great backup!
We ask all guests to respect the limitation of the dongle and we are really sorry that it took longer than expected to increase its capability but we have not experienced a problem like this before. We are working on getting a phone line to the cottage to extend the provision of Internet access.

“Cosy and characterful cottage with great vistas”
Reviewed August 3, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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.

“First class cottage with amazing views”
Reviewed July 14, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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.
