  • "Beautiful property in a stunning location."

    Everything we needed for our stay was at hand. The kids loved the garden where they could play safely. The forest walks straight from the doorstep where brilliant, lots of wildlife to spot, dens to build, things to find. So much to do in the area that we never got round to everything, so a return trip is guaranteed. We would absolutely book here again if it was available.

  • "Beautiful cottage with an amazing garden."

    We had a lovely few days exploring the forrest of Dean, went goape climbing, hired a canoe and had a picnic on the river Wye. The garden was fantastic for our 9 year old and he had lots of fun on the tree swing. Great BBQ area and outside seating. The cottage is well stocked with everything you need, comfy beds and sheets and lots of lovely thoughtful touches around the cottage. Definitely recommend and hope to return.

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful weekend - three generations and plenty for everyone."

    There were toys galore for the little ones, games for the adults (we played Articulate), lots of crockery, cutlery, cookware etc, and the most beautiful garden - far bigger than it appeared on the listing and beautifully kept. There were woodland walks direct from the cottage and the local scenery is breathtaking. The only, very minor, comment is that the oven space is quite small, given the capacity of the cottage, but that's being very picky. Thanks very much to the owners for a wonderful family weekend.

    Great garden with different areas to sit. Our grandchildren particularly liked the rope swing up in the orchard. Really well equipped and cosy. We will definitely come back as it was perfect for 3 generations to stay together.

  • "Super comfortable cottage."

    Well organised and very well equipped. Our family like cooking and there was all we needed including a good sized fridge freezer. The wi-fi was excellent and the owners had provided lots of information on the local area. There were lots of toys which the children enjoyed and the table football was well used. Outside is a large safe garden for dogs, we had 4 cars and had no problems parking. The cottage is set in a quiet hamlet surrounded by plenty of walks, with lots to do within easy reach despite the weather being awful. Highly recommended!

  • "Beulah Cottage is in an idyllic part of the Forest of Dean."

    The cottage has plenty of character and charm and was a special place to stay. The log burner in the front room made it very warm and cosy in the evenings. The TV in the sitting room would have been better if it was larger as we mainly stayed inside in the evenings as it is Winter and had to move the sofa's closer as it was hard to see. As the cottage sleeps 8 people the kitchen should have more pans for cooking as there was only 1 baking tray and 1 Frying pan. Also as the description states towels provided, one of these needs to be big enough to be a bath towel as the largest was quite small. The garden is huge and fantastic the way it goes into the forest which our dog loved. Regardless of all the above points we had a lovely restful week in the cottage and would recommend.

    Thank you for your kind comments Alison. It would seem that you only found the cooking implements stored right next to the cooker – in fact there is a 2nd large cupboard full of cookware, with a selection of baking trays, roasting pan, cake tin, pizza trays, casserole dishes etc and a second frying pan, so the cottage is amply supplied – I have (since your comment) made that clearer for guests who are only staying a couple of nights and may not have explored fully. Each guest is provided with a standard sized bath-towel plus a hand-towel, in addition to a hand-towel and bathmat in each bathroom. The TV is not massive, but we plan to upgrade it now that we have full-fibre super-fast broadband (just arrived in the area). Guests are encouraged to bring their own HDMI connectable streaming device if they wish to access their own netflix account for example; the property has Free-Sat which provides a wide selection of channels, as well as a DVD player with a selection of DVDs to suit all ages. There is also a good collection of family favourite board-games, as well as a large cupboard full of younger children’s toys, so we find that many guests choose not to use the TV at all.

    The owners are friendly, warm and welcoming and the goodies left on our arrival, for me and my dog, were a delightful surprise. All was tranquil and peaceful ideal for a truly restful break. The garden is tremendous and the forest is right on the doorstep so we enjoyed long walks through the extensive woodlands, meeting some charming people. It's a super place for exploring the Forest of Dean and I shall definitely be booking again!

  • "Three stars for the location and garden, two for the cottage."

    Lovely area - we were very spoilt by the fabulous weather, sun all week. The garden is great, could do with a bench at the top of the garden. Also the BBQ and area is nothing like the photograph. A scruffy pub bench and basic, non gas bbq is what you’ll find, The cottage itself is average. I’ve stayed in much better properties for a third of the price. When we arrived there were cobwebs and spiders in almost every corner. We spend just under an hour vacuuming them away. My son has a terrible fear of spiders - unfortunately, even after cleaning up, the damage was done, my son and his fiancée left after one night as he couldn’t sleep. Yes, we did expect spiders in a cottage, but they were literally everywhere. They obviously hadn’t been cleaned away recently. The windows haven’t been cleaned for a good while, people have drawn pictures on them!! The settee under the window has no padding, it’s like you’re sitting on the floor. The leather settees need cleaning, they are shiny and slippery. Not comfortable at all. The cottage needs a lot of TLC and a deep clean. My view is, as people leave the cottage, they clean up and as requested, leave it as they find it. The cleaner arrives, a quick look around, change the bedding and that’s it, On the plus side, the games room was great, the beds comfortable enough, everything you could need in the kitchen (except sharp scissors). Disappointed as this holiday was rearranged from 2020, it was our 30th wedding anniversary get together that ended up just being three of us instead of five. Can’t fault the location though, extremely peaceful with plenty of walks and an abundance of wildlife, we spotted boar, deer (even one in the garden), plenty of squirrels, an owl, buzzard with a squirrel, a slow worm and even a frog. We will definitely return to the Forest of Dean, just not this cottage.

  • "Only reason for 4 stars was the lack of outdoor garden furniture!"

    There were only 4 very small garden chairs for a property that sleeps 8. We were very lucky with exceptionally good weather and some comfier garden furniture to enjoy the surroundings and weather would have been perfect. Otherwise, a thoroughly enjoyable holiday at a lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings.

Lovely walks from the cottage garden so you can enjoy days without using the car if you want to and we were lucky to see lots of deer and birds.

    We went on some of the local walks that the welcome book recommended and they were really good. The garden was beautiful, we all spent a lot of time playing outside on the swing. The only downside for us was we went with a 13-month-old baby who can walk well but has not mastered steps yet and she kept falling up/down the steps that go into each room, so she left with a lot of bruises.

    Everything in the house was perfect - we had everything we could possibly need and it was so well thought out, uncluttered and tasteful. The garden was such a joy, we had a 4 and 12 year old with us and both were delighted by it, the provision of games and toys for children and dog were much appreciated. Hours were spent on the rope swing and building fairy houses in the wooded area which was scattered with bluebells. Magical. Without doubt the nicest garden of any house I’ve ever stayed. We’re only sorry we couldn’t stay longer. We followed the walk to the local bluebell wood, bluebells as far as the eye could see, so lovely. Hope to return as it’s a gem.

A lovely cottage tucked away in the tiny hamlet of Green Bottom, deep in the Forest of Dean, with a wonderful garden and natural views right on your doorstep.

Designed with the family in mind, this hidden gem is a heart-warming escape for everyone to spend some quality time together away from it all.

Step inside to the lounge, which offers a warm and cosy spot to snuggle up at the end of the day, enhanced by a woodburner and beautiful paintings that fill the room with charm.

A dining room seats up to eight people, dressed in light blues and whites, with a fireplace situated to the front.

The bright airy colour-scheme continues through to a well-equipped kitchen, with a fresh and clean atmosphere.

After enjoying a home-cooked meal, a leisurely evening can be spent in the games room, ideal for building some fun-filled memories with the entire family.

A walk-in shower room finishes the ground floor.

Stairs lead up to four beautiful bedrooms each uplifted by peaceful colours, creating a serene place to unwind and wake up to every morning.

The family bathroom ties this all together with a pleasant view of the magnificent garden, which is best admired outside.

The grounds of the house are really something special, perfect for a walk in the woodlands, or a go on the rope swing.

Green Bottom is a mile from Littledean, an ancient Forest of Dean village with many original buildings.

The woodland remains of a bronze-age hill fort on the hillside opposite the cottage is not to be missed, especially in bluebell season.

The nearby picturesque village of Newnham-on-Severn offers riverside walks, a wide range of individual shops, and traditional inns.
