“Cosy Home From Home !”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

As soon as we walked into this cottage we felt at home. Alan and Liz were waiting to show us around and were obviously very proud of their beautifully restored former miner's cottage.
They had every reason to be proud as they had thought of everything to help guests feel comfortable.
Although Sanders Cottage looks quite small from the outside, we were amazed just how much space there was inside. The kitchen is spacious and very well equipped and the utility room has a washing machine, tumble dryer and nice big fridge-freezer. It also provides a second entrance where you can take off muddy boots and dry soggy dogs!
We loved the walk-in shower off the double bedroom and the downstairs bathroom is really handy. The lounge is roomy yet cosy and we loved sitting in front of the log burner after a hard day's walking.
There are many lovely walks direct from the cottage so one doesn't need to drive every day. We enjoyed the Linear Park walk and the nearby woodlands. A little further away is the Arboretum and Sculpture Trail near Speech House. We were lucky enough to see a deer and two large wild boar and were glad we had kept our dog on his lead!
The cottage has a very pretty garden which is all enclosed so is safe for both young children and pets.
To sum up Sanders Cottage is the perfect base to explore the beautiful Forest of Dean. We can't wait to return in the Spring to see the bluebells and to complete Liz's 1000 piece cat jigsaw. I think we'll need about a month though!
