  • "Picture of bathroom deceiving as there was no towel rail & as heating very unpredictable no way of drying towels."

    The Lydney rd has very heavy traffic 24 hours ,so the property wasn't very relaxing & sleep difficult. Added to which there were rd works just outside!

    Thank you for leaving feedback, we do have a covered washing line and also an airer to dry clothing and towels. The picture online does not show a towel rail. The property is close to a road so some associated noise may be heard, there was some road works during your stay, this was outside our control, I am sorry if this inconvenienced you. Property Owner

  • "Rose Cottage and our host were lovely."

    The cottage was comfortable and the location is very good for exploring the Forest of Dean and surrounding area. The water pressure is not good upstairs if someone else is using the shower downstairs, but that was just a minor detail. Being right on the main road to Lydney would not have been my first choice but wasn't too much of an issue as the off street parking was good. There was no noise from the workshop opposite and having the sign outside made the cottage easy to find. The only issue I had whilst booking was with Sykes cottages and the very rude person we first spoke to who cancelled our original booking without consulting us even though we asked her not to and we were then left to find an alternative, which she also got wrong. Fortunately the second person we spoke to was nice and competent and sorted out the error. It does not make me want to use Sykes ever again, even though the holiday was eventually relaxing the stress beforehand was not what we needed.

  • "It was a lovely and practical place, with space to relax."

    We enjoyed the garden and having breakfast in the conservatory. We booked it because it was exactly what we were looking for and it was perfect as described. The only thing was the mattress felt a little soft/tired so a little uncomfortable. The area was lovely for walking. Most locally we enjoyed the Bream heritage walk and Clearwell caves.

  • "This a a lovey, homely, warm and comfortable cottage, set in an area ripe for exploring the surroundings."

    The owner, Christine, could not do enough to make our stay comfortable and was a wonderful hostess. Would definitely stay there again.

  • "The cottage was clean, warm and inviting."

    Comfortable seating, lovely log fire. The kitchen is well designed and provided all we needed. Plenty of storage space. It is in a perfect place to explore the Forest of Dean with some lovely walking routes near by. Very handy to have a parking space off road, as it would have been difficult to park outside.

  • "The cottage was immaculate and the owner,Christine, was so friendly and helpful."

    The cottage was actually bigger than expected and had a lovely little garden seating area with appealing views. Great position for Forest of Dean, Tintern Abbey, good walks. Far more to see and do than we had time for. Useful shops and take seats and very good access to large supermarket.

    Perfect location to explore the local area. The photos are exactly what you get - expectations are met straightaway.

  • "The cottage was absolutely beautiful and in a perfect location."

    As soon as you walked through the door it felt so clean and inviting. The cottage had absolutely everything we needed and a beautiful, comfortable conservatory to spend an evening with a glass of wine overlooking the very large garden.Christine was so friendly and just wanted everything to be perfect for us. She has certainly achieved that! Definately recommend.

  • "Lovely relaxing break in this beautiful cottage."

    We booked at very short notice (same day!) but were welcomed graciously and everything was ready for us. The kitchen is impressively well-designed and stylish. There's under-floor heating in the living room and conservatory, and the whole cottage is warm and cosy. Very comfortable beds. The owner's family business, a granite and marble workshop, is across the yard, and good use has been made of their products throughout the cottage - polished granite and marble in every room; window-sills, fire-place, shelving, flooring, kitchen counters (of course).... Makes for an elegant and modern cottage, yet the old character is still there. Many thanks!

  • "The facilities on the ground floor were very good and well presented with Christmas decorations."

    The first floor left something to be desired. The toilet was unacceptable! The toilet door would not close, the floor was very uneven and the toilet would only flush after several attempts. In no way is this property suitable for four people unless two were young children. We would not be prepared to stay here again.

    I would definitely recommend this property. It’s in the perfect location for exploring the Forest of Dean and surrounding area.

    The area was brilliant with lots of things to do with the kids. Three days wasn't enough, we will have to go back!

The property

Located on the Lydney Road leading towards the pretty village of Bream, is this splendid detached cottage in the wonderful county of Gloucestershire.

With picturesque views from the village of the Royal Forest of Dean and the Cotswold Hills beyond, this superb retreat is in the ideal situation for touring an area of awe and wonder.

The front porch opens up into a rather cosy sitting room, complete with beautiful patterned floors offering underfloor heating and a woodburning stove.

A lovely dining area rests adjacent to this, following through to the pristine kitchen.

This modern space boasts contemporary colour schemes and useful fixtures guiding you through a comfortable stay; sit at the breakfast bar and enjoy your morning coffee, or simply take pleasure in preparing the family meals in the bright and sleek surroundings.

The washing machine is housed in the utility room for your convenience, while the conservatory harmonises with the outdoor space, drawing natural light into a cosy, delightfully furnished set-up.

Take the open tread staircase up to the bedrooms; there is a family room with a single and adjoining double for those travelling with children, along with another single room, all decorated with neutral overtones.

The ground floor shower room serves the bedrooms in a stylish manner, with a modern black and white theme.

Step outside and enjoy the rural fresh air from the private patio or on the lawn, a ten-minute walk will bring you to the nearest shop and pub, whilst the Forest of Dean, offering a host of exciting activities for adventure-seekers, is within driving distance.

In the picturesque market town of Ross-on-Wye you can take a stroll along part of the Wye Valley Walk and behold breath-taking vistas, or stop off at The Prospect viewpoint in St Mary’s Churchyard and similarly enjoy the natural scenes of Herefordshire.

Symonds Yat is also easily accessed along the beautiful River Wye with its magnificent limestone, popular amongst climbers.

This is a lovely base in which to unwind with the family, in a charming area of England.

There is a family business next door which is completely separate.
