About David Moore

Having becoming thoroughly enchanted by the Wye Valley whilst at University in Bristol in the late 90s and more recently whilst living and working in Bristol, I decided to move here in the summer of 2010.

I love holidaying in self-catering cottages in the UK and overseas and so when the opportunity of acquiring Spring Cottage - then a pretty but neglected cottage surrounded by beautiful woodland - presented itself I jumped at the opportunity and applied all that I had learnt that works (taking note of the many things that don't) in completely restoring the cottage and providing guests with a thoroughly contemporary and special holiday-cottage experience.

David Moore purchased this cottage in 2010

Why David Moore chose Forest of Dean district

I love the Wye Valley - the forests carpeted with bluebells and primroses in the spring, the wild flower riverside meadows in the summer, the vistas from the top of the valley over the trees in the autumn and the crisp air and welcoming feel of a log burner in the winter - it truly is a place for all seasons!

What makes this cottage unique

Prices are fully inclusive and include: Egyptian Cotton bed linen with beds being made prior to your arrival. Thick 100% cotton set of towels per person. Hand soap, shampoo, loo paper for the bathroom. Generous supply of wood and kindling. For winter bookings, the fire will either be laid or lit prior to your arrival. Essential pantry items including tea, coffee, sugar, olive oil, salt, pepper etc. Washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets. Fresh herbs, apples and figs in the garden (seasonally available). Board games, books, DVDs, videos. Maps, walking guides and local information. Additionally, all our guests will receive: Welcome pack including locally laid eggs and freshly baked bread.

Delightful cottage in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

If you want peace and quite, this is the place for you! The cottage is tastefully finished to a very high standard with many thoughtful touches. Comfy beds, quality linens, a delicious welcome pack and a few thoughtful ingredients in the kitchen all added to the overall quality. The location is stunning and allows a wide variety of outdoor activities in a beautiful area. Having the owner close is useful for any unseen eventualities!

Cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

A lovely, well appointed cottage in a secluded valley very close to the River Wye. Brilliant welcome pack of eggs and bread and plenty of firewood, kindling can be found in the woods. The road in to the cottage, Underhill, is narrow but you get used to it, the cottage is pretty much at the end of the road, you just keep to the right at any forks.

We would definitely return here for an Autumn break.

Cozy Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, cosy cottage in a beautiful setting. Quality bedding and well equipped holiday home. Very clean. The lane to the cottage is very narrow and care needs to be taken but after first time you get used to it. The welcome loaf and eggs was a lovely gesture and basic things like teabags, hairdyer all add to an excellent experience. We will certainly go back at a future date, loved it!
