About Gillian Shaw

We are a couple who have tried to create self catering accommodation at a reasonable price in a rural location, yet providing all the home from home comforts. We are on site to give help or advice about the local area if requested.

Why Gillian Shaw chose Forest of Dean district

We joined forces as a couple seven years ago and purchased this house together, we love the rural area and all it has to offer. It is away from the crowded cities yet within easy distance of all one would need for an enjoyable break.

What makes this cottage unique

Local country walks from the front door. Easy access to the cities of Gloucester and Hereford. Secure garage storage for bikes or canoes if required. Flexible changeover days - just ask!

A beautiful, clean, roomy, comfortable holiday venue.

  • 5 of 5

This venue is a treat, from its great location to its roomy, beautifully decorated and comfortable environment. All you need is here. The owners, Gillian and Chris, were there to help when needed, plus they'd supplied plenty of information about places of interest. (POI) The rooms were immaculate and extremely clean and there were a number of kitchen supplies, which were appreciated. A complete laundry added to this great holiday stay.

Great base from which to explore

  • 5 of 5

We chose this on owner's direct because of the size of the living area compared to others in the same price category. We were not disappointed. It was very clean, well furnished and had everything we needed for our stay -and more. We used the apartment as a base from which to explore Monmouthshire, the Brecons and Gloucestershire and had a lovely relaxing time. The apartment was quiet despite it being close to a main road.The village has a decent pub and there are some pleasant walks, You need to use your car to drive out, but it is central to Gloucester, Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth - all of these we really liked. Some lovely local attractions too in the Forest of Dean. I would recommend Gillian and Chris' apartment as a great place to stay, to explore the area.

Glorious stay and a great base!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a three night stay. The Mews was very comfortable, clean and had everything we could need (and more). The owners gave great directions, were very welcoming and clearly thought about how we could have the best stay. There is plenty of information about the local area (and beyond) at The Mews and it is a great location for venturing out and exploring. Thank you!
