“Perfect weekend”
Reviewed 28 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The cottage and location made for a very memorable weekend.
Everything in the cottage was a very high standard, well equipped and beautifully presented.

The location was excellent for many lovely days out.

“A beautiful, well equipped cosy cottage”
Reviewed 19 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We have just returned from a short stay in Silhouette Cottage, what a great find. We were welcomed by the very helpful owner and she left us with a lovely home made Welsh Tea Cake, it was delicious. The accommodation has been very tastefully furnished and it was all top quality. The cottage is very cosy and we also enjoyed the garden with our little dog. There are lots of good walks close by and we definately recommend the food and friendly staff at The White Horse, two doors away. All in all a great break and we hope to go back again. We fully recommend it.

“Gorgeous cottage in a lovely location”
Reviewed 14 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I booked silhouette cottage for a christmas present for my mum and dad, they stayed between 6th and 9th March and had a great time. The cottage was spotless, the owners exceptionally helpful and they especially enjoyed the hospitality in the local pub within walking distance, would thoroughly recommend.

“Beautiful cottage in a peaceful village”
Reviewed 22 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed at the cottage for couple days over half term. It is a charming cottage well presented with everything you could need to make your stay comfortable. The log burner in the lounge kept the whole cottage cosy and warm.
The cottage is situated next to the Forest of Dean and there are lots of things to see and do in the area. We visited Puzzlewood and Goodrich Castle, I can recommend them both.
There is also a local pub in the village called The White Horse which serves superb food and is most welcoming of young children. The food is that good you won't need to eat anywhere else. They cater well for vegetarians too. The red Shiraz was also a nice drop.
The cottage is very clean and well maintained and we look forward to visiting again in the not to distant future.
