The week we spent couldn't have been better - both us and our two dogs really enjoyed our stay in the Elaine & John's perfect little Cottage. So much thought has gone into this little gem. It was immaculate and comfortable with lots of local advice about things to do and places to see, and included dog-friendly activities and places to eat. Everything about this break, from the moment of booking to arriving back home went perfectly and hassle-free. The Cottage is an ideal base for exploring all the wonders of the Forest of Dean and it really felt like we were coming home every night, and not just to a holiday let. So peaceful and comfortable and perfectly maintained. Highly recommended.
We stayed in this cottage for 4 nights. It was ideal base to explore the forest area. The cottage was very clean and tidy. Very dog friendly with a dog supplies box for our use.
The enclosed garden was a bonus for our dogs. Nice walking from the cottage just a bit hilly on the way back.
We had a great time!
The cottage was very comfortable/spotlessly clean and situated in beautiful rural surroundings with amazing views. My husband and I were very pleasantly surprised and pleased to find ourselves located in these beautiful surroundings. The owners were both very nice/helpful friendly people. The estate they own ranges from camping/caravaning/cottages it is highly maintained, well run and spotlessly clean. I don't think they have forgotten anything that anyone might need/require to ensure the perfect holiday, They should feel very proud of their achievements.
I would reccommend this as a holiday/short break to anyone, especially those who love the company of their beloved pets. Our weimaraner 'Asha' loved her stay as much as my husband and I. We plan to make this a regular get away throughout the year as it has everything to offer on it's door step, making it the ideal place for all ages. Lazy days/ outdoor activities/dog friendly pubs that serve snacks and meals as well as many sightseeing trips at your fingertips. The forest is serene with many miles of walkways/ trails to explore. The village itself is beautiful and well worth walking around it's spread out surrounding the forest/countryside and the people are all very friendly and welcoming.
Our stay was perfect we loved it!
My partner and I spent our Christmas break at the cottage and couldn't be happier with our choice of location and host. And cat lovers rejoice - this is one of the few places I have come across which accepts cats instead of only dogs!
The cottage is located right in front of the forest which is fab, as it enabled us to make the most of the natural surroundings a short walk away. It's also 10 minute drive from town so quite convenient. It is on the small side, but it's perfectly comfortable for two people (and a cat!) and had everything we needed. Loved how warm and cozy it was - perfect for a winter stay!
Elaine was a great host and even provided us with a sand box for the cat. Both her and her husband were kind and respectful hosts, who were more than happy to help in times of need and took good care of us. Communication pre-holiday and during has been easy and smooth. Would certainly recommend it.

We had a lovely time at the cottage friendly managers , the dog had a garden of his own , nice cosy cottage. And was near all the places of interest .the only bad thing was the weather that spoiled it , recommend it to anyone .

We took our dog who loved it,she had her own little garden and direct access to the forest, the owners had provided washing facilities for her paws and our muddy boots.Lovely break at a brilliant place.
