Great news for all our guests…We are officially now a  'Tudor Rose 3 star property', we have been assessed and approved by Visit Britain; so when you are now looking to book a holiday cottage that you can be sure is of a high standard.

We know that that will take the stress away from trying to decide what sort of accommodation you will walk into, having been to plenty of different cottage homes myself. I truly understand the huge disappointment one can feel when you open that holiday home door for the first time and it’s not what you thought you had paid for. All of our guest have left positive feedback and given us wonderful comments in our visitors’ book. This is by far the best sort of advertisement that anyone could wish for, and now we have the 3 star Tudor Rose to affirm those comments.

We have really tried to get a home from home touch, so you feel relaxed and comfortable, a place to bring the children and the family pet and still have a really high 3 star holiday home.

We were very precise about what we wanted to achieve; and that included being family orientated; pet friendly and keeping our sofa beds as an option; we have found that when our guests arrive for their week’s holiday they often want to invite a friend for a day or 2 and this allows them that option;  we have listened to what our guests have said and stayed true to that.

If you want to contact us or check out this lovely cotswold country cottage just follow any of the links shown and we will look forward to hearing from you soon. You can be assured of a fantastic holiday in a truly stunning part of our country.

If you are looking to book a country cottage, then there are few better places than this beautiful retreat.
Overlooking the Severn Valley, this cottage is ideally based literally between the Wye Valley and the Cotswolds.

It is on the doorstep of the Royal Forest of Dean, which has some stunning walks such as: Beechenhurst trail, Cannop Ponds, Speculation trail to name a few.
This part of the country is haven for wildlife, and in the Wye Valley the nesting home of the Peregrine Falcon.
The Royal Forest of Dean is ideally suited for those that love to walk, cycle or ride; with its many cycle paths and bridle paths you will be stuck for choice.
The activities are numerous for children and adults alike; and if you book a country cottage with us all the tourist information is at hand at the cottage.
Speech House in the Royal Forest of Dean is the centre spot and only 3 miles from this Cotswold country cottage, it can be reached on foot by those that love to walk, or a few minutes drive away. One of the many great places to have a relaxing pint of beer; at the end of a bracing stroll through the woods it is just what one needs.

There is no better place to book a country cottage if you like to get out and about on day trips, this Cotswold country cottage has a massive advantage with its location, being on the border of the Cotswolds and the Wye Valley, it is within easy reach of some of the most beautiful Cotswold villages, such as Bourton on the Water, Bath, Cirencester, or for the quieter village Bibury, Broadway and The Slaughters; all of which are still full of their natural charm.
The Wye Valley offers plenty of attractions and picturesque villages of its own: Ross on Wye, on a sunny day with a glass of chilled Chablis by the river is a must, or going for an ‘old fashioned ea in the ‘Antique Tea rooms’.
Symonds Yat is stunning and host to the Peregrine Falcon, fabulous cream tea by the river watching or taking a boat along the river.
To top it all, you come home to sit in the huge conservatory at this peaceful Cotswold country cottage and watch the rabbits play in the garden, if you are lucky the Green Woodpecker will visit as will a host of other birds.
You will want to come back time and time again, there is so much to do and see within a 15 mile radius of this Cotswold country cottage.

We have just been awarded the 'Tudor Rose 3 star accommodation' by Visit Britain which is fabulous news for us and for you our guests. You can be assured this holiday cottage will be of a high standard; as we are all aware holiday lets are always a bit of a gamble, never being sure of what you will find when you arrive, so its good news for everyone to know when you choose this country cottage that is one of the things that you will not have to think about; and that takes some of the stress out of English cottages search.

Holiday Cottage

If you are looking for a holiday cottage with stunning surroundings and easy access to all types of holiday activities, this is the perfect way to go. English cottages are stunning with the wonderful variety of stone we have in this country and this holiday cottage is no exception. Originally a row of 4 cottages with a kiln for mortar in the gardens, the Mutlers would be hard at work. Now this holiday cottage has been made into one of the most relaxing holiday lets I have visited and the original stone that was once the kiln, is now surrounding the holiday cottage as a garden wall.
Although we might not fall into the large holiday homes for over 6 people, this cottage is really spacious and comfortable for 4 people. The large conservatory is the centre piece of this cottage where our guest all let us know how much they adore having breakfast in there or just relaxing with a good book on one of the sofas, whilst the children or pets play in the secure garden; or just enjoying the view over the valley.
Being awarded the 3 stars also shows our commitment to maintaining these standards and that we listen to our guests needs. We know that when you are looking for Cotswold cottages and want to come home from a day sight seeing, how much nicer your cottage holiday is when the place you are returning to is comfortable.
We might fall into cheap holiday cottages, but we are really good value for money, having been told on numerous occasions how reasonable we are and that we should be charging more, we do not want that to be the deciding point for people to make their holiday cottage choice on; so when you want to book this country cottage you have: great value, fabulous location and plenty to do for all ages. So don’t hesitate, check out one of the best cottage holidays uk, you will want to return time and time again …that is if you can get past the fact that you will not want to leave.
