There isn't much more to say except that everything about this property was exceptional. We didn't want to leave! Fay was incredibly helpful, taking the time to welcome us and to give us a good rundown on the area. The cottage was very clean, and we had no problems with check-in or check-out. One of the best places we've ever stayed.
We enjoyed our time in Blakeney. The cottage was clean and tidy and was equipped for 6. The bedrooms were spacious and the bright and airy. We did find the sofa seating area limited, it only sat 3 or 4 and was not particularly comfortable. Despite that, it was a good place to stay and recommend it.
A beautiful cottage in wonderful location
Very comfortable cottage, well equipped, wonderful location for exploring the Forest of Dean. Would highly recommend and would return again x
Lovely short break
Attractive, quiet cottage in beautiful countryside. Very comfortable and clean with modern bathrooms but still full of character.
It would have helped to have had a postcode and detailed instructions on how to find the cottage, but apart from that it was excellent.
Thank you so much for your lovely review we're really pleased you enjoyed the cottage. The cottage address is on the HomeAway website and I twice sent you more detailed instructions so I can only apologise that you still found it tricky to find. Best wishes, Fay
lovely stay at the cottage
We had a wonderful weekend with 6 friends. The rooms were very clean and we were very pleased that every bedroom had their own bathroom. The setting was great, in the middle of the Forest of Dean. We would recommend it to everyone!
A lovely cottage, photos don't do it justice.
A family of 4 adults and one kid had a memorable new year holiday here. We spent a week at the cottage, comfy beds spacious clean bathrooms, great showers. Woods and walks nearby. Easy to find it. All excellent.
The cottage is located on the edge of the picturesque village of Blakeney. The local pub and shop are within walking distance. The Forest itself is right outside the cottage and there are superb attractions a short drive away.

For walkers, there are numerous way-marked routes and footpaths throughout the area, as well as several circular routes through historic market towns, picturesque villages and some of the most scenic parts of the Forest of Dean.
