Beautiful spot for a holiday. Cottage well appointed, comfortable, clean, peaceful all you need. For us it was a perfect place to base our holiday. Forest of Dean, Gloucester, Chepstow, Monmouth, Raglan, walks, castles, cathedrals plenty to keep you occupied. At the end of the day a peaceful place to chill out. Highly recommended.

Spotlessly clean with a well equipped and modern kitchen. The bed was super comfy with lovely bedding. The bathroom was very cold even in July as the towel rack was not on. The patio area is lovely to sit out in but the garden was in need of some tidying.
