We have just had a week at this beautiful cottage situated within easy reach of local attractions and the nearby town of Monmouth. The cottage is really well equipped and all you can possibly need is provided, even down to a delicious cake left by Michelle to welcome us on arrival. Bedrooms are bright cheery and comfortable with plenty of space, the whole cottage has been decorated to a high standard. The garden is gorgeous and surprisingly quiet given the location near to the road. We took our dog with us and found lovely walks close by plus a very welcoming local pub just a few doors away. Would recommend this as a perfect place to stay if visiting the Forest of Dean/Wye Valley.
We spent a splendid week at Silhouette Cottage. Michelle is the perfect host. The cottage is equipped with all one would need - fully equipped kitchen, very comfortable sitting room, power shower, spacious comfy bedrooms and above all a conservatory overlooking an immaculately kept garden. Very quiet surroundings despite the proximity to the main road. Central to a number of attractions with a good pub just next door. Michelle went out of her way to ensure our comfort - she and her daughter cooked a delicious cake which was devoured in no time. Would highly recommend to anyone planning a visit to the Forest of Dean - a place away from it all in tranquility and peace.
Booking with Michelle was a pleasure, the cottage was not only spotlessly clean but the level of interior decoration was absolutely lovely. Having the mad dog Izzy our Weimaraner with us we needed at least three/four good walks a day within close proximity to keep her happy. No problem, within 2 minutes from the cottage we were in the forest chasing squirrels, her favourite pastime. If you want peace and quiet in an absolutely lovely setting Silhoutte Cottage is a must and you would be foolish not to give it a try. Absolutely recommend, we will be back!
Silhouette Cottage is very pretty with a lovely garden and is well equipped. We enjoyed several forest walks. Perfect for a quiet break with Monmouth nearby for a great range of independent shops.
Don't let the proximity of Silhouette Cottage to the main road put you off, because it is tucked away down its own drive, and we found it really quiet. The cottage is really lovely, so warm , clean, well equipped and cozy. We had everything there we needed and more. We breakfasted in the centrality heated conservatory, and chilled out by the woodburner in the evenings. It was the perfect cottage for our break, with a brilliant pub just yards away too. We were greeted warmly by Michelle the owner on arrival, which I appreciated . I would love to go back in the summer months , and enjoy the lovely garden aswell. Highly recommended....and I'm fussy !!
