Great location, great weather and lovely garden. Close to all amenities and perfect for you if you like long walks in the Forest. I'd recommend Puzzlewood, Symonds Yat and Beechenhurst arboretum for good walks with refreshments on tap.

The cottage is very comfortable, the log stove had plenty of logs, the kitchen well equipped and a beautiful garden the dog loved! Just a shame it was not warm enough to sit out!

Nice cottage and garden. Owner left fruit and cake, milk etc. Parking involved very tight reversing so probably best to use car park just across the road (only 6 per week or free at weekend) Overall a thoroughly enjoyable week.

Pratts Cottage, small but delightful. The cottage had easy to use heating and a wood burning stove (which we didn't need to put on). The layout is what it is and took no time at all to get used to.
