  • "Lovely property with great facilities."

    Small enclosed garden very good if you have a dog with you. Good walks all around. Friendly host who stopped to say hello. We had a really good holiday in this place. (Five adults and one dog!)

  • "We have a lovely x2 night stay in this cottage."

    It was clean, had everything we needed and was a good size for 6 adults plus x2 small dogs. We just wished we could have stayed longer so we could explore the surrounding area (and the weather had been nicer). I would recommend this cottage and the host was very friendly, helpful and welcoming.

  • "Just returned home after a lovely week staying at Oak Bank Cottage."

    We all said that this has been the best place we have ever stayed. The cottage is so lovely, beautifully furnished and in an excellent location in a beautiful quiet and relaxing village but also close to amenities and attractions. The added extra of cream tea when we arrived was great. The owners are lovely and available if you need them but leave you to get on with your holiday. The cottage was spotlessly clean. Thank you! Brilliant holiday which we all thoroughly enjoyed.

  • "A very nice property in a good spot."

    Ideal for families with dogs. We love the traditional decor, but some of the appliances were quite old and there was an awful lot of dust in the soft furnishings. Everything else such as kitchen and bathrooms was very clean and tidy.

  • "We had a wonderful week over New Year, the cottage was so beautiful, cosy, clean and exceeded our expectations."

    The lounge had plenty comfortable seating for the six adults and the wood burner made it extra cosy. Fiona made us some delicious muffins & scones which she delivered to us on New Year’s Day. Our dog really enjoyed his own space, preferring to take himself off into his own quarters, 2x dog beds were provided and even though we took our own, he did enjoy trying them out. If we needed any assistance, Fiona was on hand immediately. In the property as well as providing a, visitor’s book, there’s a suggestion book too. Which is such a good idea for providing the owners with information, ie a light bulb needing replacing etc. Overall wonderful.

  • "We have stayed in many holiday Cottages over the years and this one is by far the best equipped."

    My husband and I, our son, his fiancée and their 16 month old baby had a lovely holiday stay in this cottage. It was ideal for families and a good central base to explore the area. We especially like the fact it had a utility room where we could come in via the back door with our dogs, dry them off and put them straight into the dog room to thoroughly dry off before they joined us in the large kitchen/dining area. The dog room was an added bonus with 2 large dog beds and food/water bowls. We had a great holiday thanks to Fiona the owner making our stay more than comfortable and leaving a complimentary delicious afternoon tea for us to enjoy and basket of logs for the log burner.

  • "Lovely cottage and central for all activities within Forest of Dean area."

    Cottage is large and accommodated 3 dogs no problem with the added bonus of a dog den which was great for cleaning them after walks and feeding. Cottage supplied towels, bowls and even dog poo bags just incase which was great. Cottage is very comfy and has everything you would want and more. Good secure outdoor space for dogs complete with hose to clean the little rascles, also good walks straight from the door. Cream tea on arrival was a nice surprise and was lovelly. I would recommend and would stay again if in the area.

About the location

LONGHOPE

Mitcheldean 1.8 miles; Cinderford 5.4 miles; Gloucester 10.5 miles; Stroud 19.9 miles

The rural village of Longhope is nestled in the west of Gloucestershire, right in the heart of the Forest of Dean, lying between the Severn and the Wye. The quaint village is home to a local store, Post Office, The Farmer's Boy Inn pub and restaurant, a café, bakery, yoga studio, a church, as well as a local football club dating back 100 years. Longhope is tucked away in between the village of Mitcheldean and Lea village, two equally charming destinations offering a wider variety of shops, pubs, restaurants, parks, takeaways, and B&Bs. The Forest of Dean is an ancient forest with aspects of medieval culture, steeped in history, acting as a royal hunting forest, navy timber source and coal mining industry, and is now home to unique wildlife, walking trails and adventurous activities. The cathedral city of Gloucester is easily accessible, boasting vibrant amenities for an exciting day out, whereas the Wye Valley AONB lies on the opposite side of Longhope, home to serene landscapes, nature and countryside air. Longhope acts as a tranquil getaway location deep within a charming corner of Gloucestershire.
