You could not ask for a better location with the forest of Dean in your back garden.
My wife and I took a weeks holiday here along with our dog. We arrived before out check in time and was taken directly to our cottage.
The cottage itself had everything you could need for a weeks holiday. We stayed in the Badgers cottage which had two bedrooms, a downstairs bathroom with a shower over the bath open plan kitchen / living room. Bedroom one had a double bed with bedroom two having two single beds. The cottage was very well equipped and only needed to bring food.
The location was perfect for those who like to walk, we went on long walks everyday and loved them especially walking around the forest trying to avoid the wild bore that roam free in this forest. Overall we had a great stay and well done to the owners.
