Beware traffic and steep hill
A pleasant little cottage providing a splendid welcome pack. It is located on a fairly steep hill, not far from Yat Rock, right next to the narrow and very busy single track road (with blind bends); carrying all the traffic from Symonds Yat to Coleford. Traffic noise seemed constant from 0600 to 2300. Visibility was poor for getting out of the parking place and needed someone to check for traffic. The "court yard" was a small gravelled area and in need of some TLC. There was a large septic tank lid in the middle (which was leaking on arrival). Not ideal for sitting out in warm weather along with the vehicle noise and associated emissions.

Superb Dog Friendly Cottage in stunning countryside.
We had fantastic long weekend in this delightful cottage. We were welcomed with a basket of goodies, including homemade cake and local cider. Every detail had been thought about from dishwasher tablets to firewood. Even our spaniel had been left some treats. The cottage was warm and welcoming at the end of a day's walking in the stunning Wye valley and the local pub serves great food on the riverside. A great little break, I hope we can return next year to see the area in summer.

Great stay in Forest of Dean
Lovely little cottage, owners left some lovely treats to welcome us! Good location, lots of walks and villages nearby. Great pub 20 minutes walk away. Would come back again!
