What a wonderful place. Very nicely done 2 bed cottage. The location is stunning and the whole booking/ arriving process was brilliant. Good value and a wonderful base for exploring the amazing Forest of Dean- everything was within 30mins. The views from the cottage were amazing, seeing the birds and wild deer was a highlight. Don’t hesitate to book!
We booked Nuthatch Cottage to use as a base for visiting family in the area & for exploring. The cottage has everything you need, was very comfortable & with outstanding views! If you're looking for peace & quiet, then this is the place to stay.
Because of the location, the only (minor) downside is that it is reached by a single track road. If you meet a vehicle coming in the opposite direction, you may have to reverse a long way back to reach a passing place.
Aside from that we had a great 3 night stay! The owners Vicki & Tim had put a lot of thought into the cottage, which goes a long way to making the experience so enjoyable.
The cottage is in a fantastic location, quiet and rural, with gorgeous long distance views across fields and the forest.
The cottage is appointed to a high standard, is very warm and friendly and had ample space for our little family (2 adults, 1 two year old). Our little boy loved having the two resident cats visit him daily, enjoyed seeing and hearing the chickens, patting the fine horses and feeding the donkey in a nearby field.
The location is great, as there are walks on the doorstep, but it's easily commutable by car to nearby attractions such as;
Perrygrove steam railway (excellent for 2-5 year olds)
Beechenhurst lodge, activity and picnic site (Well worth a visit for kids / families all ages)
Dean Heritage Centre
We had a fantastic time here and loved the local area.
Really nice place to stay , view is amazing. Walks on your doorstep .
Lovely cottage , has everything you need. Very peaceful.
Just come to the end of an amazing week here with amazing weather. Easy to find with the postcode and supplied directions, the first thing here that takes your breath away is the view, no photograph can do it justice! The cottage while more compact than we imagined is perfect and very modern, while still keeping the character, the garden is also amazing. There are paths to be walked (and ridden) straight out of the door. Unlike a lot of places, it also feels like you have your privacy too. Nuthatch cottage is maybe a little further than some places from the main forest but not inconveniently so, in fact if you go north its an advantage! The wildlife is amazing, birds, farm animals, rabbits, even a fox! This is a cottage which will only get better as it matures, hope to visit again one day! Thank you to Vicki and Tim for allowing us to use their wonderful cottage
