little gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Christmas cottage and it was wonderful. The host was delightful, helpful and friendly but respectful of privacy. The property was really nice, clean and cosy bedding and towels etc were clean and very comfortable. I rarely write reviews but did here because it was such a good experience.

Truely a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was exactly how we imagined and exactly what we saw in the pictures. The details and the decor made us feel right at home. David was there to meet us, we already felt like we knew him. We wanted a few nights away from the bustle and crazy work schedule in London, we wanted somewhere quiet and full of greenery, which is exactly what we got! The cottage was clean and so cosy.

Thank you so much David and we shall be recommending this place to everyone!!!

Trisha and Jo! :)

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful place in which to spend much of our first trip to England! Our host was friendly and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the little market and the staff who were ever so helpful with dining suggestions and directions to the Forest of Dean.

It was an added bonus to discover that David and I share a remarkably similar taste in motorcycles. We each have the same model of Harley Davidson!

This was a great place to stay in the middle of so many great places to see!

You won't be sorry you stayed at

Christmas Cottage!

Beautiful, charming, clean, homely, pretty, welcoming and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

It's so wonderful to book somewhere that is exactly like the pictures, the cottage was clean, pretty, full of personal touches, had all the essentials and David even popped over to say hello which was really polite of him. It was a quiet location and had a small supermarket around the corner, a lovely Italian restaurant and a fish/chip shop. The cottage was the perfect size for the 4 of us staying there, the rooms were good sizes, the lounge was nice and the kitchen was a nice size for us to cook in. I would highly recommend anyone to book this cottage.

Thanks for a lovely stay David.

We were welcomed warmly by David, and were impressed from the word go!

Cottage was beautiful, spotlessly clean and cosy!

Loved the design throughout the whole cottage, beds were comfy and it looks so much better than the photos!

We enjoyed the local fish and chip shop, which is quite literally across the road! Italian was nice but the best pub/restaurant to go to is The Cock Inn, which is down the road. A must try!

Would definitely recommend to all! Loved it!

Diolch yn fawr iawn David, for a lovely stay!
