Great location for exploring the Forest of Dean. Carol, the cottage owner greeted us warmly upon arrival and was so nice to the children and dog! The cottage was immaculately turned out with dry wood for the log fire and a huge chocolate cake in the fridge we felt immediately at home. Carol advised us well on the different attractions...

Management response:

Thank you Andrew, it was a real pleasure to host you and the family. I'm into baking fresh bread at the moment so next time it might be home made jams, local butter and fresh bread! All the very best for the New Year and I look forward to seeing you all.

About the neighbourhood
Badgers End Cottage sits in a tiny lane which ends with a pathway whereby you can walk though an avenue of ancient trees into the nearby town to collect your bread if you wish from the local bakery which is open from 5am onwards! The views are spectacular to the Welsh mountains and the people in the area are friendly and welcoming. You can walk from the cottage into the Forest or down to the local 12C Ostrich Inn which serves real ales, fine wine and terrific food. The area abounds with wildlife and you sleep to the occasional sound of owls hooting, wild boar grunting down the lane and the badgers rustling in the woodland. This is overtaken during the day by peace, tranquility and silence!
Getting around
To see the sights you need a car though there are plenty of other ways of transportation to see this Royal Forest. Bicycles are fun, canoeing the river is awesome, riding (horse or llama) through the forest blends in with the wildlife and walking is terrific!

The bus comes to the bottom of the lane once a week and goes 5 miles to town!
