“Delightfully charming, quirky and peaceful.”
Reviewed 3 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My wife and I recently stayed at this delightfully charming and quirky little cottage. The owner, Richard, was extremely friendly and helpful. His two dogs are seriously lovely. The cottage itself was great. If you are looking for a place to stay whilst visiting the area, this is a great place to be.

“Bloody lovely!”

Gorgeous cottage in a lovely peaceful setting that is also a great base for exploring the forest of dean and surrounding area.
The cottage has everything you could need for a romantic and relaxing stay and is just fantastic.
Some points to note (in no particular order): Take slippers, the floors are really quite cold! The windows and door are both a bit draughty but the heaters work well and their use is included in the hire price. The lane to and from the cottage is a little scary (some of the locals are a bit mad on the driving front) due to being very narrow. We got a lovely welcome pack of wine, crisps, porridge, milk and marmalade. There was also some coffee and tea there so we didn't have to shop straightaway. Mitcheldean has a co-op and small local store for food, plus takeaways, but no sit down restaurant. The front steps can get a little slippery and be careful not to turn the outside light switch off - you'll never find the keyhole without it!
Overall it's a fab little place and we would highly recommend it.

Liked best: The cottage itself and how cute it is.
Liked least: Cold floors, but socks solved it!
