“Excellent base. ”
Reviewed 2 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

This is the second time we have stayed at the Mallard.

Perfect for couples, with or without a dog. Very clean and tidy. A warm welcome from Steve the owner, always there if you need him.

Cosy and romantic cottage, and love the woodburner!

We will be coming back again and again

Plenty to see and do,

“A little gem!”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in May 2015

I stayed at Mallard with my partner and dog in May 2015. We absolutely loved everything about it! The views around the property, the wildlife on the pond and the swan family with their 8 babies! The tidy enclosed garden, the comfy patio furniture, the French doors and open aspect of the downstairs living area. The property is very bright, cosy and comfortable and provides a perfect base to explore the Cotswolds, Forest of Dean and Wales! We loved it so much we rebooked the day after we returned and I'm counting the days down before we go back at the end of August 2016!!

“Cosy week away”
Reviewed 20 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This cottage is set in lovely surroundings. We took our dog and there were so many woodland walks to explore. We sat in the cottage and looked out to a pond and fields (heaven). Geese, swans, Bluetits, ducks and so much more wildlife. We felt so relaxed after a week at this cottage. Would recommend to anyone

Thank you for sharing this lovely review with us all, we couldn't be happier that you enjoyed your time at Mallard. The position of the property sounds wonderful, we would love to unwind looking out onto that view also! I bet your dog was in heaven too, with all of those walks in easy reach! We certainly hope that you return for another stay very soon.

“Perfect for Two”
Reviewed 31 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This place is great. Really cosy and perfect size for two. It was really well designed and laid out so that it felt cosy but never felt that we were lacking space.
Nice decor and furnishings and well finished.
Everything we needed was there and the owner was very friendly and helpful, providing additional logs and kindling on request.
Brilliant base point location for walks in the Forest of Dean and close to Gloucester / Cheltenham / Ross if you prefer the town shopping experience.
The dog loved sitting in the garden and watching the geese and sheep. This location is idyllic.
We strongly recommend this as a getaway for two and will definitely return.

“Fantastic little cottage”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This place is fantastic. It is small but perfectly formed, and despite its cosiness, it lacks nothing. It is surrounded by beautiful fields which are home to swans and sheep.. both of which come right up to your fence to say hello.

The owner is the ideal blend of always being available, but never in the way.

We will certainly be back, and certainly recommending to friends.
