We were warmly welcomed and our host couldn't have been more helpful. The cottage had niggly little faults i.e. only one teaspoon but four eggcups, no dining table only four stools and a bar, three cans of beer to welcome us but no wine or G & T. Just little points that would make all the difference. Overall a very high standard and I am being very picky. The cottage is in a good position within walking distance of the town and shops. Alex, our host, even offered to let us have a late checkout or an extra night as he had no booking for the next night. Very comfortable beds and showers that worked efficiently. Highly recommended.

A really lovely place to be. The cottage is warm and immaculately kept with everything you could want for a week's stay.

Coleford is not what you would call a 'pretty' village but it has all you need, with a couple of good places to eat and a supermarket.

It is about an hour from Hereford, Cardiff or Gloucester in differing directions and very close to Monmouth. It is perfectly placed for many different locations as well as being right on the edge of the Forest of Dean.

My friends and I had a wonderful stay. The cottage was everything we hoped it would be and was ideally situated to explore the surrounding area. The cottage was tastefully decorated throughout and equipped with everything you could need. What really made our stay was our host Alex, who couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. Stay here in this hidden gem and you'll have a wonderful relaxing break.

Booked the cottage for two nights in order to attend a wedding nearby. We were welcomed by Alex who was very friendly and helpful anfpd had left some goodies for us. The cottage was perfectly clean and very comfortable. Plenty of room for four adults. A lovely stay, thank you.

An absolutely lovely cottage, and an excellent host in Alex. Very convenient for access to many walks and things to do.

We will definitely be going back!
