“Soooo relaxing.”
Reviewed 29 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

What a drive to the cottage after you left the main road as you delved deeper and deeper into the forest. Right away I could feel myself starting to relax.

We were greeted at the cottage by the owner who gave us a quick tour and then left us to chill out and relax.

The cottage is beautifully laid out and very clean and so so quiet. Sitting in the garden was fantastic. Night time too was equally super where you were surrounded in complete darkness due to no 'light pollution'. This was getting better and better in fact the sky was so clear that during the night the meteor showers we were told about were awesome although I did only see two.

Would I recommend this place for a holiday? A big yes jumps out.

The instructions and directions given to the cottage were spot on. Now a word of caution but this in no way has to do with the cottage. It is advisable to have a proper AA / RAC road map or, like us, you'll have fun with the sat nav. Work out where you are going first and if you disagree with the sat nav trust your instincts. It took us two days to work out the the parallel road was better than the directions the sat nav were using.

This is by far and away the best holiday cottage we have stayed in and we would hurry back.

“Little bit of paradise!”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

people found this review helpful

Bailey's Point cottage is set right in the forest itself, so if you are looking for peace and quiet and the beauty of nature this is the place to be. But don't imagine slumming it as the facilities in the cottage are excellent with stylish décor and all mod cons. My husband is usually a fairly early riser in the mornings but on 2 occasions during our week's stay he slept till 10am! Unheard of in our household! There are deer and wild boar in the forest but unfortunately we did not spot any on our visit. However, with a bird feeder outside the back door we were entertained to a great variety of small wild birds which was lovely.
Other areas of the Forest of Dean are easily accessible from the cottage as are Gloucester, Ross, Tewkesbury etc.

The owners who live on site were very welcoming and helpful and provided us with a basket of eggs and a locally made loaf of wholemeal bread.

Unfortunately my mobile company (EE) could not provide a signal at Bailey's Point but my husband's (O2) did.

“Superb High Standard Cottage”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

This cottage is ideally located for exploring various counties and places around the Cotswolds. The owner Tanya is a lovely lady and greets you upon arrival with a freshly home baked loaf and 6 duck eggs. The cottage is furnished to a very high standard and is well equipped. Great surroundings for a walk. No question we are returning in 2016 it was that impressive. A great shower. If you are a family there is adequate seating outside with a swingball. A lovely colourful garden

“Beautifully furnished cottage in paradise”
Reviewed 15 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

We have just spent 2 weeks at Bailey Point Cottage and feel like we found paradise. The cottage is beautifully decorated and furnished to a very high standard. The owners Tanya and Duncan were there to meet us and help with our luggage and gave us a very friendly welcome, there was a loaf of homemade bread and 6 eggs left in the cottage for us which we much appreciated. Their friendliness continued throughout our stay, delivering logs for the log burner stove and also bringing a bottle of wine and some chocolate cake for my husbands birthday. Within their grounds they have 2 horses, some sheep,ducks and a very enthusiastic dog called Huxley, there is also deer and wild boar within the forest.
The surrounding grounds are so beautiful and peaceful, you can walk for miles and just hear birds singing and sheep baaing. It's a truly away from it all holiday but there are lots of things to do within a few miles, the canal cruise at symonds yat was very enjoyable followed by a delicious meal at the Saracen inn. If shopping is your thing then the Ross Label shopping village is a must, lots of choice for men and women plus bedding, China and gifts, again a very nice lunch is available at a reasonable price. The scenery in this area is stunning and we both came away feeling really rested and relaxed. We are definitely going back to Bailey Point Cottage next year.

“Stunning”

It is hard to describe the overall enjoyment and relaxation that I gained from the ambiance generated from both the accommodation and location. Starting with the warm welcome I received from Duncan and the welcome pack of bread, eggs and beer and lit log-burner by Tanya, through to the tranquility of the setting and abundance of wildlife. If you are looking for a very clean, modern, high quality yet secluded base, either to just relax at or as a starting point for day trips, I cannot recommend this high enough.
Try the Crooked End Farm shop too, it does fantastic coffee and a good range of local of home grown organic meat and veg
