“Tranquility and comfort in equal measure!”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My wife and I spent 4 wonderful days at Silhouette and we loved every single minute and simply didn't want to leave.

The location is absolutely perfect, being about 2-3 miles from lovely Monmouth, a couple of miles from Coleford and about 150 yards from the fabulous White Horse pub with it's lovely food and warm welcome.

Michelle had left some very useful provisions for us including some tasty shortbread which was an ideal pick-me-up after a long road trip for us.

We were exceptionally lucky with the weather whilst staying and so, when we were at the cottage, we spent most of our time in the Conservatory or lovely spacious gardens. Total relaxation.

Every facility is here, including some logs and newspaper for a traditional fire, which we did have one evening when it was a little cooler. Could have done with some firelighters as well to get things going, but we managed OK in the end.

The bed was very comfortable and the Bathroom facilities are fine albeit the overbath shower is a little restricted and I suppose I should say that I wouldn't recommend the cottage to anyone with any mobility issues as the stairs are quite steep too. But for us there were no problems and as I say we just loved it here.

The kitchen was also stocked with absolutely every utensil you could need and has a brilliant fan assisted oven. A separate Utility room has a Ground Floor loo and also has the washing machine.

A word for Staunton itself which is a lovely picturesque village with wonderful views around many a corner, through the woodlands and up and over the nearby hills. It is well worth exploring using the Heritage Walk brochure.

Silhouette really is a traditional country cottage set in beautiful surroundings whilst benefiting from having all the conveniences of modern day life (including wi-fi by the way) and we have taken away some long to be remembered memories of this 5 star get away from it all gem.

Friendly owner, gorgeous cottage and beautiful area, we will definitely stay again, even after 4 days there is still much to see and do, especially if you enjoy walking.

The perfect cottage in the perfect location for exploring the forest of dean. With this lovely cottage as a base you can explore by foot by bike or by car. There is easy access to many areas of outstanding natural beauty and lots of attractions for the active kids.
