Lovely cottage, a good size for 8 people with a lovely large kitchen/diner. Secure grassy garden was great for the dogs. Forest walks on the doorstep in one direction and lovely views over smallholding fields in the other direction.

Nice house, comfortable and generally clean with comfortable bedrooms. You will need to bring all provisions including salt and pepper and toilet rolls. There is a Co-op and Tesco in Colford which is only 10 mins away in the car should you forget anything. The Christmas tree was a nice touch!

Reviewed by Camilla, 21st July 2017

We were really pleased with this holiday cottage - it is a well-appointed, cosy cottage with a private garden in a great location for exploring the Forest of Dean; in a quiet hamlet with walking and cycling from the door. Easy access to Coleford with shops, restaurants and even a small cinema.
