A Gem in Blackney

We stayed here for 3 nights over the Easter holidays and was just what we needed, beautiful setting and all you could possibly need , the cottage was fully equipped with everything you could want for a perfect stay.

The surroundings are perfect and The Forest of Dean is on your doorstep.

David and Angie are lovely and were very helpful with ideas for outings.

Totally chilled out

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect. We pitched up on Friday evening and the cottage was warm and welcoming. Dave and Angie were lovely and gave great tips for forest walks with our dog. The cottage was brilliantly equipped and we really did not want to leave! Hoping to return soon as it is a great area to explore.

2 night stay . 2 adults with 2 young children

  • 5 of 5

Very well finished and cosy cottage. Close to local shop, chippy and restaurant. Great base for exploring the local attractions with welcoming owner. Would recommend.

Only work of warning is entrance to the complex is tight for larger vehicles particularly getting out but I was warned about this in advance!

beautiful cottage in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very quaint and very well equipped. On our arrival there were candles burning and relaxing music playing, a very pleasant start to our weekend. Parking was in a courtyard protected by double wooden gates. Ideal for securely storing bicycles. Blakeney is an ideal location for exploring the forest of Dean. We would definitely come again.
