Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage was beautiful and had everything we needed. Lovely layout, inviting fire, great location and beautiful views. A wonderful host and great place to stay! Thanks so much.

A lovely week in an excellent cottage. The cottage had everything you would need and Fay is very welcoming. We have found some lovely walks in the Forest of Dean, Wye Valley and Wales and the 12 mile family cycle route is a must. Still lots I would like to do in the Forest of Dean and would definitely stay here again. Thank you.

What a beautiful cottage with lovely decor and furnishings! It has been a delightful week even with the rain! There are so many places to visit. we didn’t even make a dent in the list we had. We all feel we want to go home and redecorate to make our homes as restful and tasteful as the Old Tump House. Thanks for the welcome and an idyllic setting for my birthday.

Lovely home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week in the Forest of Dean. The old tump house is located on the edge of the forest with a beautiful backdrop of trees. It is really well presented with 3 large bedrooms all en suite and a kitchen, dining and living room all combined. All the attractions are no more than 30 minutes drive from the house. The village where the house is located is small but Lydney is 10 minutes drive away and has all the amenities needed. Thanks to Faye and family for your kind hospitality.

Great place to have a family week in the forest.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property, so comfortable, clean, warm and good size bedrooms, loved coming back to it every evening. And the beds.....so snuggled we slept! And best of all the forest is literally out the gate. Faye (owner) was lovely and our kids enjoyed playing with hers. All in all a great place to visit even in the winter!

Quiet Cottage, Ideally placed for exploring the Forest of Dean

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the cosy cottage with it's well appointed ensuite bathrooms and well equipped kitchen. The seating area for watching tv is somewhat compact for 4 but has table and chairs behind for overflow seating. Some written instructions on how to use fittings (shower controls, etc) and equipment (ovens, microwave and how to connect DVD player to TV) would be helpful as well as advance warning of the need for indoor footwear. We really enjoyed our stay and found plenty to do and places to eat locally. Recommended

A lovely cottage in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was cosy and warm with everything we needed. What a treat to have an en suite bathroom to every bedroom, and we enjoyed the open plan living space. There was lots of good walking very close to the cottage and a pub serving good food just 10 minutes walk away. We cooked at the cottage too and found the kitchen to be well equipped. Communication with the owner was very good right from the moment of booking. We would recommend this cottage and hope to return.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

A delightful cottage in a beautiful area.

Spotlessly clean,with 3 ensuite bedrooms,very well equipped kitchen facilities,and dining/lounge area.

The cottage has stunning views of the Forest of Dean,and its wonderful to watch the eagles flying overhead,and listening to the dawn chorus.

The owners are very helpful,and on hand to give advice about the surrounding area.

Thankyou for making the booking process so easy and simple,nothing has been too much trouble right from booking earlier on in the year,you are great hosts,and we wish you all the best.
