The cottage was fantastic with some great little touches from the owner to make it feel like home from home. Everything you could think of was there to make our stay perfect.
The village had everything you need for a short break from a well stocked convenience store right next to the cottage to a village pub where we enjoyed a great Sunday roast to one of the best Italian restaurants we have been too which is only a walk across the road from the cottage.
Would highly recommend this cottage for a short break to enjoy a comfortable home and local facilities to the surrounding area where you can walk and walk
We will certainly be returning
The Olive Barm is gorgeous, beautify decorated with vintage charm and a whistling kettle, you won't want to leave. It has a cosy romantic feel perfect for couples. The village has so much to offer within walking distance. We loved the friendly Cock Inn pub 10 minutes walk down the road and Italian Resturant across the road for evenings out, the food is amazing and beautifully presented. The well stocked village shop had a private back enterance you can nip through when staying at the barn. We visited Puzzle Wood, The Heritage Centre but the highlight was rowing down the River Wye in a shared canoe. A wonderful place to visit made perfect by the accommodation X
This little house looked beautiful and quirky when I booked it and it did not let me down. It is cute and homely and perfect for couples looking for a romantic weekend away. My fiancé and I loved coming back to it to relax after long days out in the Forest of Dean. When we arrived there were lovely touches such as candles and music playing which were thoughtful touches added and this really sums up how the place is run, with care and love.
It's situated in a perfect location for those wanting to spend some time in the Forest of Dean and we found literally everything we wanted was within 20 minute drive! There are several restaurants within walking distance and the Italian across the road does takeaway pizza for £6.50, which I recommend!
The host David was very friendly and welcoming and we got on with him very well, he also was extremely good at answering all my questions before we arrived which was definitely reassuring.
If you'll take any advice just believe all the reviews on here. They speak volumes!! We had an amazing time, would definitely return another time! :)
Myself and my partner stayed here recently for 4 nights. What a wonderful cottage situated in the beautiful village of blakeney. It is everything we could have possibly wanted and more. Could not recommend this enough to anyone! We will definitely be returning to recharge our batteries! Also David is a very welcoming/friendly host. Made us feel right at home upon meeting him.
Thankyou for making our 4 nights so special. Tom and Lauren
