Beautiful cottage with an amazing view. Very relaxing to be able to sit in the Jacuzzi and look over the valley.

Reviewed by Elisabeth 1st March 2020

No 1 is a lovely modern cottage which is light and airy. The view over the valley is superb...along with the sunset. The hot tub is delicious! A sweet small play area is great if you have a child with you. The owners on site are very friendly and helpful.

A lovely welcome by Emma and a comfortable stay. It was the perfect place to stay with a toddler as we had everything we needed and enough space.

This was a lovely cottage, with beautiful views on one side across the valley and to the forest. We visited during a period of storms and found access to the countryside difficult. The fields around were boggy or fenced off. The holiday park was on a very busy road with really limited and narrow paths and so I wouldnt recommend this cottage for thoRead morese with small children or dogs wanting to be able to explore the area on foot without getting into a car first. The cottage itself was lovely. Hide

The place is lovely and very clean. Everything you need is provided. Bed and sofa comfy and view to side of property is lovely. Nice and warm and the spa pool is gorgeous. Only negatives are the WiFi doesn't work, your on the same site as a caravan site so views that side not nice and didn't like getting in spa pool when could be watched.

No introduction from owners throughout the week which surprised us.

Beautiful stone cottage with full selection of modern amenities. Hot tub was amazing. Enjoyed sitting on the decking with a fabulous view. Would love to return. Hosts friendly but left us to our fun. Welcome bottle of wine was a lovely touch. Thank you Emma.

Beautiful views of the forest from the decking and hot tub. Cottage is very modern, light and airy. Cottage is attached to a campsite whose guests regularly walk right past the cottage. Fine for us as we had children who enjoyed playing on the climbing frame. You have to drive everywhere but a good base I explore the Forest of Dean.
