The layout of the cottage worked well for us as a group; there was plenty of space and it was clean and well maintained. It was also very well equipped which really did make it feel like home from home, The cottage location was ideal to get out and about to explore the Forest Of Dean. I wouldn't hesitate to book the cottage again.
Mrs Sabin

This holiday was to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday with our children and grandchildren. The grandchildren loved the games tables whilst we were able to sit and talk, there was plenty of places for us all to separate and not interfere with the others. The wet room was brilliant as was the underfloor heating throughout the house.
Mr Knight

Mrs Holt

The house was lovely and spacious, very well equipped and nothing was missed out. The location was also excellent.
Mrs Lewis

The property was very clean, warm and the kitchen was well furnished. The open plan layout meant it was ideal for our group. I spoke to the owner on a couple of occasions and he was very friendly and helpful.
