An excellent stay. Everything you could possibly want is provided plus a load of things you didn't even know you wanted. Very comfortable, warm and spacious. Lots of books and games, TV and Wi-Fi. You really only need to take clothes and toiletries!

Tips:

Lovely area, beautiful scenery, and so close to many tourist attractions. The Ostrich in Newland must not be missed for a superb meal with extensive menu and good prices, great atmosphere and welcoming hospitality.

We were extremely pleased with out stay in 2017, so did not hesitate to book again when we wanted to come this year. We were not disappointed - this is still one of the best cottages we have ever had, as much for the many personal touches and welcome as for the cottage itself. Highly recommended.

3rd October 2017:

Welcoming gift of Welsh cakes, a pint of milk and box of chocolates was a nice touch. Tea, coffee and sugar also provided but strangely, no salt or pepper in the cruet. Would have liked brighter bedside lights in the bedrooms - a little too dark to read in bed. Some of the tourist information leaflets were several years out of date but we left hundreds of our own so shouldn't be a problem now! As you can see, if the only thing missing was a bit of pepper, we had a fantastic time.

Tips:

Tewkesbury, Ross on Wye, Ledbury, Monmouth and Chepstow all well worth visiting. Best view is from Symond's Yat, plus Peregrines and Goshawks there. Nagshead RSPB produced deer and wild boar and would be great for birds in spring. Best birdwatching was at Ham Wall RSPB near Glastonbury (90 minutes drive) - Glossy Ibis, Great White Egret, Bitterns, Kingfishers, Pectoral Sandpiper, Hobbies etc

Very friendly and welcoming (delicious, home-made Welsh cakes waiting for us!), a relaxing, home-from-home cottage, comfortable chairs and bed, and great facilities. An outside sitting area with tables and chairs is the icing on the cake.

Tips:

Coleford is a half-hour walk via the scenic and interesting "burial path" (to Newland Church). There are really good walks all around, both in the Forest, across fields, and by the river. Cannop Ponds is a great place for wildlife and one can often see bats feeding over the water at dusk. Tintern Abbey is, of course, glorious, and Goodrich Castle is well worth a visit. Symonds Yat provides unbeatable views over the river, nearby cliffs and surrounding countryside. Altogether perfectly placed in wonderful surroundings.

Excellent property with much thought gone into guests' comfort. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly, and we felt we could call on them for anything although this wasn't necessary. This is the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed at. Thank you.

Tips:

Many attractions to see in area though we were restricted to wheelchair friendly places. Especially liked the Birds of Prey Centre, the Dean Heritage Centre and the Steam Railway at Norchard. Good value meals at the New Inn, the Old Court Hotel and would highly recommend the Dog and Muffler but all need to have tables reserved in advance.

Cowshed Cottage is as good as any self-catering place we have rented over the past thirty years. We were delighted, not only with the quality of the furnishings and equipment, but with the way every detail was catered for to make it a real home-from-home

Tips:

As we lived in Coleford for six years we spent our time visiting friends and walking in the Forest. We did few of the normal 'tourist' things, but did visit and were most impressed by Tewkesbury Abbey and town, and would recommend at least a day to visit it.

The diary is delightful with views in all directions. A small patio garden was a lovely place to spend the late afternoon and evening after long days walking. We never needed our car as walks are on the door step. The cottage was immaculate and the kitchen was amazingly well equipped. Eileen and John could not have been more helpful with welcoming welsh cakes and genuine interest in our days in the Forest.

Tips:

Although we did eat there this time The Ostrich is Newland is a treat not to be missed. The Sculpture Trail combines walking and art and is worth a visit.

These properties are situated on a farm complex in a peaceful setting close to Coleford in Gloucestershire. They are equipped with everything you would want for a wonderful holiday. Each property has two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Tips:

There are lots of wonderful off-road walks in the area. Gloucester Docks and Waterways Museum are well worth half a day, or even longer, if you wish to eat there or shop in the Outlet Shopping Centre. There's also the Dean Forest Railway nearby. Monmouth is a lovely town with lots of historic buildings to visit on a walking tour. For shopping Monmouth has a Lidl, M&S Food and a Waitrose.

Fantastic cottage with absolutely everything provided by Eileen who made our short stay here fantastic and we would definitely recommend the Cottage to others.

Tips:

We are a family of four and stayed for 3 nights and did the following which we would recommend: Mountainbiking - we hired bikes for the day and had a really great time. We rode the easy family route twice and the blue route once. The blue route was more challenging. Go Ape - Great fun for everyone. Ostrich Inn - well worth the short drive to Newland but as suggested we walked across the fields from the cottage to the Inn. A lovely walk rewarded by a great meal, but no kids menu so not much if anything for them. Puzzlewood - Worth a trip as the walk through the woods is fun and the kids will love it...slippery paths. The only downside was the lack of wi-fi and mobile network which prevented us from checking out things to do and routes to go. However Eileen did bring this to our attention and as this was a very late booking I had no time to do research beforehand. There is however 3G in the adjoining fields so it was lovely to sit there and do any research as the sun went down. Great place and we highly recommend.

We could not fault this cottage in any way.. To have milk in the fridge and homemade welshcakes ready for our arrival was very thoughtful- we could have a cup of tea before unpacking!! The cottage was like home from home- you really have thought of everything your guests would need. I can't think of anything that was missing! So thank you very much for a most relaxing and enjoyable fer days.

Tips:

The cottage although situated in the countryside,is not far from places to visit. We spent some time in Monmouth and Ross-on-Wye. Lovely shops- lots of them different from your average chain stores. A good choice of nice cafés and hotels for coffe o'r a meal.

Fantastic cottage in a wonderful location. We received a warm, friendly welcome and appreciated the tea, milk and tasty lemon drizzle cake which awaited us. Very comfortable sitting room and bedrooms. Well equipped kitchen/diner. Pleasant patio garden. Both ensuite shower rooms were spotless. We found the cottage to be an excellent base for exploring the area. Lots of nice touches like tissues in the bedrooms, rose water spray in the shower rooms, Dvds, books, jigsaws and board games for the evenings. Lots of info provided on places to visit and places to eat. All in all we had a fab holiday.

Tips:

We loved the nearby Ostrich Inn in Newland (great walk from the cottage through the fields to it). Also loved the Italian restaurant. La Piccola, in Monmouth. Enjoyed visiting Goodrich Castle, Puzzlewood, Clearwell Caves, Tintern Abbey, Raglan Castle .....phew ...plenty to do and see. Even managed to travel a little further afield to Hay-on-Wye (lots of quirky book, antique and gift shops).

Cowshed Cottage was perfect for a short break or a holiday. My father has limited mobility and the single level accommodation was ideal. The location was great and views around the cottage were delightful. Owners were friendly and helpful. Love the Wye Valley and hope to return soon.

Tips:

Enjoyed visit to Skenfrith Castle ruins, Ross on Wye and Monmonth and further afield Ledbury to the North and Chepstow to South. Particularly enjoyed lunch at Community café/shop in Brockweir near Tintern and also Woods of Whitchuch, a café/ shop and Art gallery.

Very kind owners who add little touches to make your stay special. The cottages are comfortable,very clean and cosy. Our daughter stayed overnight and went to her wedding from here. There was plenty of room for her to get ready and her bridesmaids to join her before going to her wedding. I would recommend for anyone attending a wedding close by.

Tips:

Plenty of beautiful countryside for walks and tourist attractions but intermittent phone signal and no wifi so it's difficult to stay in contact with anyone. However for a getaway from it all its perfect.
