Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Ideal Cottage for walking, many footpaths from the door. Lovely walk through the woods to Shop at Christchurch for essentials (including papers). Cottage very comfortable and warm and ideal for us with our dog. Did not have to use our car very much. Intend to return to the Old Shop for another holiday. Oct 2012.
  2. Very close to walks. Owners helpful and cottage excellent value. March 2012.
  3. The cottage was truly a ’home from home’ and we would definitely make a return visit in the future. Dec 2011.
  4. The whole package was as described, the owners were on site and friendly The location ideal, quiet, very little traffic, easy access to local amenities, in fact we were sorry to have to leave. The owner was born in the main house and has lived there ever since. Aug 2011.
  5. Very clean quiet & well laid out with plenty of room. June 2011.
  6. A very comfortable cottage ideally situated for touring the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley. There are forest walks immediately opposite the cottage with a delightful path leading to Symonds Yat Rock. We certainly intend to go back. May 2011.
  7. Opposite woodland, very quiet and secluded. Excellent walks both long and short from the door. Very good value for money-very well fitted out. We would recomend it to anyone and would certainly book there again. The owner was friendly but not intrusive, and knowledgable about the history of the area. July 2010.
  8. Great position for exploring the area - we have a 14 month old child and it was great for us to have a property with no stairs and small enough to keep an eye on the little one very easily while in a strange environment. July 2010.
  9. Very comfortable, welcoming, and the owners really great. May 2010.
  10. It was very clean, comfortable and warm. Everything I might need was provided. May 2010.
  11. Surprisingly spacious, good size kitchen, very comfortable bed, all mod cons. Looks better in reality than the website pictures lead one to believe. Very convenient for great walks and not far from the shops in Coleford. April 2010.
  12. So Close to Symons Yat, a wonderful location. One can leave the car there and walk across the road to a lovely walk. Sept 2009.
  13. Clean and well-equipped. Good location. Friendly and helpful owners. Sept 2009.
  14. Lay out good, accommodation cosy and clean with every requirement provided. Aug 2009.
  15. The accommodation was excellent, the only thing letting down an otherwise outstanding place was the shower. With a single storey dwelling, there was little water pressure. The kitchen was superbly equipped, and the bed and sitting room amazingly comfortable. The inclusion of a DVD player was the icing on the cake. July 2009.
  16. The cottage was well placed to visit lots of places on the Welsh borders. Yet close enough to the Forest of Dean to offer great walking. April 2009.
  17. Warm welcome and very accommodating. Excellent location for bird watching and walking. May 2008.
  18. The pictures on the website did not do the cottage justice. It was in an excellent location and it was far better than we thought it would be. The caretakers were really helpful and very kind. Oct 2007.
