  • "The property was very clean and very comfortable."

    When we come back to this area we will be looking to stay here again.

  • "An excellent stay, once again, at this lovely cottage in Newnham."

    A great location just a minutes stroll to the River Severn. The cottage is immaculate, well equipped and dog friendly. Newham is on the edge of the Forest of Dean, a wonderful area for exploring. Can highly recommend Ferryside Cottage and the area in general.

  • "Lovely cottage and village, very comfortable and well-presented."

    We used the kitchen and found it well equipped and the oven and hob easy to use. We enjoyed the garden, walks along the river and around the village and found the neighbours friendly. We found the local shop and pub, the Black Pig, welcoming and good and also enjoyed dinner at the White Hart. Otherwise we used the cottage as a base from which to explore the Forest of Dean. One small point - would be good to have somewhere to hang your coats and put your shoes.

  • "This cottage was cosy and comfortable - it was very well equipped with everything you would need for a break."

    The lounge was a perfect place to relax after a day walking around this very picturesque area. The courtyard and the garden (superb views of the Severn from the garden) were ideal for relaxing with a glass of wine at the end of the day. The locals were very friendly, especially all the ones we met in the local pubs - (The Black Pig - excellent pizzas, The Railway inn - a proper pub with an excellent Indian restaurant above, The club - cheap and cheerful and the White Hart Inn - excellent food) . All of these within walking distance of the cottage. Maybe an information pack would be helpful about the local area (we only found the Railway Inn by accident) but all in all an excellent place to stay and hopefully we will be back again if you can fit us in. Thank you.

  • "This cottage is in a great lot to explore the Forest of Dean and the surrounding area."

    The cottage was clean and very comfortable. My only feedback is that The glassware/ cutlery/ crockery was not enough if the place was fully occupied.

  • "Fantastic set up - the cottage was comfortable and had everything we needed - including a smart TV which does make a difference with kids if the weather turns."

    Neighbours were lovely too. Slight niggle in that we didn’t realise that there was a washing machine and larger freezer in the shed next to the cottage until the end of the stay.

  • "There was a washing machine and tumble dryer in a shed, The shed itself was full of dirty mouldy stuff that had been abandoned."

    If the shed was to be emptied and thoroughly cleaned it would have been far nicer. It let down the whole feel of the stay. There is also a shed at the top of the garden that was in the same condition. It had cushions for the seats outside, but yet again needed to be emptied and thoroughly cleaned. we would consider returning if these points were addressed. The owner was lovely as were the neighbours The house itself was clean and liveable. It was just a shame about the shed

About the location


Gloucester 13 miles.

The thriving village of Newnham-on-Severn nestles on the banks of the River Severn. The village is steeped in history, and offers specialist shops to suit all interests, along with traditional pubs and cafes. This charming village, part of which is designated Conservation Area, has a tree-lined main street, many listed buildings, a striking central clock tower and is ideally located for watching the spectacular Severn Bore. The Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest, offers numerous trails that can be explored on foot, bicycle or horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high-wire rope course are on offer for the more adventurous, while fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are also available. Gloucester is just a short drive away, where you will find Roman foundations, Victorian docklands and a spectacular Norman cathedral (whose cloisters were used in the Harry Potter films). Littledean with its unique Jail Museum and Quadrophenia Collection, Westbury Court Garden, the only restored water garden in the country and the ancient caves and eerie caverns of Clearwell Caves (as seen in Dr Who and Merlin) make a great family day out. The ancient market towns of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth have excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, plus many black and white timbered buildings, or visit the historic walled town of Chepstow with its celebrated race course and impressive Norman castle. A little further afield, discover the beautiful Malvern Hills, Black Mountains and Brecon Beacon National Park. A great location for a relaxing break or activity holiday at any time of year.
