Perfect setting for a fantastic relaxing break
Bailey Cottage is tucked away in the middle of the forest, lots of stunning walks and wildlife on your doorstep. The owners have put a lot of thought into the accommodation, the bed is very comfortable. Each room is equipped for your every need. The owners make you very welcome and are on hand if you need them. They have horses, ducks, a cat and a bouncy dog who all add to the enjoyment. We felt at home straight away and staying in on a dark night with the wood burner going and a glass of wine was a perfect way to relax. If your into bird watching we managed to see, 18 Goldfinches, Robins, Long Tailed Tits, Great Tits, Blue Tits, Green and Spotted Woodpecker, Nut Hatch, Jay and Buzzards.. We also where very privileged to see a stunning fox at the Wigpool close by. We will go back and feel that any other places we stay now will have a lot to live up to.

Soooo relaxing.
What a drive to the cottage after you left the main road as you delved deeper and deeper into the forest. Right away I could feel myself starting to relax. We were greeted at the cottage by the owner who gave us a quick tour and then left us to chill out and relax. The cottage is beautifully laid out and very clean and so so quiet. Sitting in the garden was fantastic. Night time too was equally super where you were surrounded in complete darkness due to no 'light pollution'. This was getting better and better in fact the sky was so clear that during the night the meteor showers we were told about were awesome although I did only see two. Would I recommend this place for a holiday? A big yes jumps out. The instructions and directions given to the cottage were spot on. Now a word of caution but this in no way has to do with the cottage. It is advisable to have a proper AA / RAC road map or, like us, you'll have fun with the sat nav. Work out where you are going first and if you disagree with the sat nav trust your instincts. It took us two days to work out the the parallel road was better than the directions the sat nav were using. This is by far and away the best holiday cottage we have stayed in and we would hurry back.

The location was as perfect as we could have hoped for. The cottage topped it all off and was a comfortable and beautiful place to explore from.
