“Fabulous cottage, location,hosts,and weather.”
Reviewed 29 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The cottage was lovely, everything you need in a home from home. Lovely bed linen, fluffy towels.The only sound was bird song. Carol and Tony were great hosts, so much local knowledge and information. The cottage is such a fabulous location for most attractions in the Forrest of Dean.

Thank you Heather and Christine. There is nothing like spending a holiday with an old friend in a cosy cottage. You walked miles and had quite a few memorable adventures! It was a real pleasure to host you both, there are plenty more adventures to experience, and as always a warm fire and a glass of wine to come home to.

“Wye Valley and Forest of Dean”
Reviewed 11 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A wonderful cottage and great hosts in a fantastic location. The host Carol is very helpful and was attentive to our group. The location just south west of Simmons Yacht, was tranquil and relaxing. The nearby pubs are great and the local town (Coleford) has everything you may need.

“Lovely cottage in the Forest of Dean”
Reviewed 28 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Very comfortable cottage in lovely rural setting in the Forest of Dean. All you can hear are owls at night and cockerels in the morning - idyllic. And the night sky was solid with stars. It was wonderful to be able to buy truly free-range eggs from the house over the road. The cottage is very well appointed and Carol, the owner, was warm and made us feel so welcome. My only reservation is that it wasn't long enough! Carol also recommended the Ostrich for dinner on Saturday night in nearby Welland - a lovely old country pub serving good food and a great atmosphere. A thoroughly enjoyable weekend.

“Lovely cottage.”
Reviewed 25 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

What a lovely cottage. It was our first holiday with a new dog. The owner made us feel very welcome. The cottage was very clean and had a lovely homely feel about it. Location was good for walks and getting to the local attractions.
We would definitely come back.

It was a pleasure to host you all. Barney is quite special and you couldnt help but fall in love with him! Thank you all for leaving the cottage so neat and tidy, much appreciated. We now have a growing number of wild skunks in the forest - what would Barney make of these, they are the same sort of height!

“A warm welcome in the heart of the Forest”
Reviewed 24 March 2017 for a stay in January 2017

My two children and I were visiting the UK for the holidays, and, in addition to sightseeing in London, I wanted to show them the English countryside and Wales. The Forest of Dean was the perfect place - a brief train ride from the city, with real English charm. But the real highlight of the trip was getting to know Carol and Tony and enjoying the warmth and comfort of Badger's End. It had everything we wanted, and more - including a fireplace! The beds were super comfortable; books, games, cards, and DVDs were plentiful for down times; and the kitchen was well stocked. Carol and Tony were full of fantastic ideas for day trips and sites to see: Big Pit, Tintern Abbey, Chepstow Castle, and more. JK Rowling grew up in the Forest, and you can see how the area influenced her writing (parts of the Harry Potter movies were filmed there) . We all want to return in the summertime to see Badgers End in full bloom, and to spend time with these wonderful hosts again! Heartily recommend this place!

Thank you, it was a delight to have you as guests at Badgers End, and for leaving the cottage so neat and tidy. I'm so glad you saw a bit of 'UK ancient rural history' and brought it up to date with 'Harry Potter'. We will await your return visit in the summer when the forest is alive in so many different ways. The chocolate cakes will be waiting.....
