Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The pub which was almost adjacent to the property no longer exists. The nearest pub is about a quarter mile away by the railway station, this is an award winning pub run by a Greek couple and the food and hospitality there is excellent. May 2012.
  2. Nice location - lots of good places to visit within easy reach (castles, gardens) as well as the Forest itself. The bad weather meant we very much appreciated the central heating! April 2012.
  3. A comfortable cottage, very helpful owners, a good location for exploring the Forest of Dean, enclosed garden a bonus for our dog. Sept 2011.
  4. A nice cottage, close to the cottage, added bonus being near the railway. Good for walks, good pubs especially The Fountain (very good value), luckily the weather was very good, the dog enjoyed himself, lots of walks in the forest. April 2011.
  5. Good location. Spacious but warm and cosy for our autumn short break. Nov 2010.
  6. Liked that it was private, near to forest and local attractions. June 2010.
  7. Lounge with bay window is its best feature. We liked the enclosed garden as we have 2 dogs. Very close walking area to exercise dogs before breakfast. Private parking very helpful, not too far to carry luggage. May 2010.
  8. Nice comfortable property.Tea, biscuits & flowers on table for when we arrived. We had a very good week. May 2010.
  9. Very pretty property, clean and very welcoming. May 2010.
  10. Good sized, comfortable, well equipped property in excellent location for exploring Forest of Dean. Feb 2010.
  11. The bedroom and living area were very spacious and comfortable. Lovely and warm too! Nov 2009.
  12. Well equipped, well laid out. Oct 2009.
  13. Perfect location for exploring the forest, our dog loved the walks, its a beautiful area. March 2009.
  14. Friendly welcome, beautiful warm comfy accommodation in a quiet cottage called the sidings, well situated for walks in the forest of dean. Plenty of good quality pubs serving excellent food. March 2009.
  15. Good links to all attractions. Very well appointed, close to two pubs one with excellent food peaceful and close to forest with lots of activities very close. July 2009.
  16. The lounge come dining area was a huge space and had loads of light coming through with a nice outlook onto the owners land. The bedroom was of a large size with plenty of storage however very dark due to the large trees outside blocking the light coming through into two small windows. The decor needed a spruce and the bathroom looked tired but overall very comfortable. Sept 2009.
  17. This property has a spacious living area which is great if you have a toddler. Owners were very helpful, attached to the property but allow you to get on with your holiday. Welcome was excellent, scones, milk and tea/coffee on arrival. April 2007.
  18. You can walk in to the Forest of Dean within 5 minutes of leaving the cottage, which is wonderful. Jan 2009.
  19. The Sidings was surprisingly spacious and provided an excellent base for exploring the area. The friendly welcome and sharing of local knowledge added to the enjoyment of the Forest of Dean. April 2009.
  20. There was so much to see and do that we will have to return. The cottage was far better than we was perfect. It was very clean with a small but well equipped kitchen. The owners were welcoming with fresh scones and a pot of tea. Best of all was the price such low cost compared to the quality of the cottage. April 2008.
