    • “We stayed at Cornerstone Cottage for a week with our Daughter and family, plenty to do in the area, Caves, walks in the Forest and other villages to visit”

    • “lovely cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “yes, this is a lovely cottage set in beautiful surrounds, we wouldn't hesitate to go back there again - everything you could want in a rural cottage. The only down side to the cottage was the attic bedroom - very cold in the winter and the outside lighting didn't seem to work. If you don't know the area it is also a little difficult to find as the sat nav tries to take you down a small farm track. The nearby Puzzlewood is a very good day out and a must visit.”

    Ms Marsh, Oxford, October 2015

    • “Location was excellent for walks into the surrounding woodland, and local attractions for the kids such as Clear Well Caves, Puzzle Wood and Perry Grove were a pleasant walk away. Front and back garden were safe for the kids to play - no hazards or worries about them getting out into the road. Overall felt very cosy and homely on a cold Easter break.”

    Dr Moffatt, Brighton, March 2015

    • “The cottage was very comfortable, and well-placed for loads of great family activities. Loved the loft bedroom, and it was great for the older kids as their 'den'. Good wi-fi connectivity. Kitchen was well-equipped. Very friendly and approachable owners. It was very useful to have the high chair and travel cot and towels supplied. Central heating and the wood fire were extremely effective. The lovely decorated Christmas tree and the bread and milk when we arrived were very thoughtful.”

The magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest, offers numerous trails that can be explored on foot, cycle or horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are for the more adventurous, whilst fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this unspoilt area.
