It wasnt the cleanest of places and needed some work doing to it. It was freezing and no winter duvets, someone left the windows open so it was so cold when we arrived.

We had a lovely time at the cottage. Plenty of room for the 4 of us and the dog. The views were amazing from the decking which overlooked the park. The hot tub was great- very much enjoyed by us all. A vacuum would help with the carpet cleaning. But highly recommend this cottage.

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.

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.
