What makes this Cottage unique
Offers a peaceful holiday 'get away' setting surrounded by open common land and forestry.
Accommodation excellent and area was a wonderful surprise with lots to see and do. Highly recommend.
Cottage was just what we hoped for... Cosy and quaint. Good location for the forest and the kids loved the free roaming sheep and chickens! Jane was lovely and helpful... And made us feel very welcome. Would happily recommend and return.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments about our cottage. So pleased the family enjoyed rural Gloucestershire, the wonderful Forest of Dean. Thank you

Really appreciate your lovely comments. Thank you.
Lovely weekend break - cottage home from home - comfortable - clean & cosy. Jane is lovely & very welcoming & friendly. Tim & I were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary & Jane made us a lovely cake - very thoughtful - lovely cake. We have been here before with our children when they were younger so was delighted to find this property again after all these years. Would recommend this property - loved the sheep & chickens roaming around outside the cottage. Loved it.
We were delighted you "found " our cottage again, after all these years. So pleased you enjoyed it. Thankyou.
Delightful cottage in a lovely location. Very well equipped & the owner lives next door. Jane is a great lady who is happy to help with absolutely anything & everything. We plan to go again.
Thankyou, We look forward to meeting you again.
Enjoyable short break
Just had a very enjoyable short break staying in this cottage, Jane and her Husband are very welcoming and friendly, we arrived on a wet dank day and Jane had made sure the heating was on and the house was warm when we arrived, which was very nice. My partner and myself found the house very comfortable and had everything we needed and would definitely stay here again, especially if Jane makes her welsh cakes again. We found the location to be quiet but easy to get to and from. Thank you Jane and Hubby hope to see you again.
Really pleased you enjoyed your September break. We appreciate your comments. Thankyou.
very clean and relaxing
a quiet relaxing holiday lovely people to deal with
Thank you - "Very quiet and relaxing " is exactly right. A much appreciated review. Thank you.
The cottage is located in a quiet setting in the ancient Royal Forest of Dean, two miles from the riverside town of Lydney, Gloucestershire. Away from traffic and noise, we are positioned directly behind forestry land and common land the cottage is perfectly positioned for exploring the abundant wildlife and fauna of the Forest where sheep graze freely.
Walkers and cyclists of all ages enjoy the miles of footpaths and cyclepaths which criss-cross the Forest of Dean. The Forest of Dean is a dog's paradise and dogs are welcome in the cottage.
The Forest of Dean is famous amongst keen cyclists for its excellent mountain bike and downhill trails which are being extended all the time. The family cycle path follows an old railway line, ideal for a leisurely ride for the whole family.
Children love Puzzlewood, Go Ape, Clearwell Caves and a ride on the Dean Forest Steam Railway or at Perrygrove Miniature Railway with its treehouses and secret passageways. The Dean Railway provides Adults and children alike an enjoyable day out with attractions such as Thomas the Tank Engine, and friends. The Forest of Dean is bordered by two rivers - The Severn - try surfing the world famous Severn Bore, and The Wye where canoeing, kayaking and boat rides are readily available. Why not try a leisurely stroll around Cannop ponds and Mallards Pike, and take in all the peacefulness of the surroundings.
The magnificent Tintern Abbey beside the River Wye, the Castle at Chepstow and the Cathedral at Gloucester are popular historic sites.
