A warm welcome from the very helpful owner and a lovely hospitality tray awaited us. The owner's house is just across the path. Having the key in a box with a security code outside was great for us walkers as we didn't have to worry about losing the key.The advertising had been accurate and photographs informative. What you saw was what you got! clean, spacious, wellthought out purpose built accommodation. An open plan ground floor, two very comfortable bedrooms and two bathrooms and a downstairs loo. the cottage has a small outdoor, enclosed patio area. There were plenty of leaflets about local attractions. You can walk to the Birds of Prey Centre which is well worth a visit to watch - amongst the 'professionals' - the young birds in training. Enthusiastic clapping encouraged! Cities and towns are not far away but the walking is marvellous. May Hill is close by and two wonderful pubs The Yew Tree and The Glass House both with excellent food, wines and real ale. The little town of Newent , a mile down the lane, provides all day to day needs and a regular bus service to Gloucester and Ross on Wye. However unless people were pretty keen walkers you would need to have a car and there is of course a parking space off road for the cottage. Just take care backing out into the lane. I would happily recommend a stay at Daisie Cottage for a holiday to anyone.
