We enjoyed a very restful and peaceful break.
"Very wonderful location."
Property ideally located for array of local days out walking, cycling, kayaking. High standard of accommodation. Hot tub wonderful addition.
"The cottage was perfect for our first visit to the Forest of Dean."
Lots to do without having to travel more than 30 minutes from the cottage. We will be returning to explore more of the area in the near future.
"A lovely, reasonably well-equipped cottage in a beautiful location."
Quiet with good views of the forest and lovely walks off-road from the door.
"A great little cottage with everything you need and more (hot tub !"
!) Definatley look at revisiting
"Lovely cosy place - had all we needed for a cosy relaxing place to stay."
Ideally situated for some smashing walks in Forest of Dean - jacuzzi at the end of a long walk was a nice tonic and sitting in front of a log burning fire in the evening was grand - highly recommended place to stay.
"The cottage is very clean and cosy."
We enjoyed my husband’s birthday and Valentine’s Day. Enjoyed the walks and shopping in Gloucestershire.
"Lilly Cottage surpassed our expectations."
A beautifully quaint interior with far reaching views. The icing on the cake being the 6 seater hot tub provided with total privacy. A truly magical get away.
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lily Cottage."
It is located in a really pretty setting ideally suited for travelling around the area. The hot tub was an added bonus and it looked really magical with the fairy lights. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well stocked with everything you could want. If we were to visit the area again, we would definitely book another stay at Lily Cottage and would thoroughly recommend for a romantic break. Thank you.
"Absolutely amazing property."
It’s in a lovely area which is quiet,perfect and beautiful. The property so we’ll equipped, beautiful and clean. Lovely having a log fire and the hot tub tops it all off. Just the most amazing place and had a fantastic holiday! Plus Loads to do in the area.
"Had the most wonderful stay in this delightful cottage, best hot tub ever (and we have tried a good many!"
) Good walks almost from doorstep, pubs aplenty with good food, cottage was clean and comfy, a cosy spot for two! Forest of Dean heritage centre and Puzzlewood are our favourite places to visit.
"We loved our stay at this gorgeous cottage which was so cosy."
There was a confusion with the check in / out time so beware emails from Sykes cottages as the check out time is 10am not 11am. The hot tub is not able to be used on the first nights stay due to cleaning, so is only available for 1 day out of a 2 night stay despite arrival at 15:30 (this is due to changing the water for every guest to ensure cleanliness) however this should be advertised on booking. We were also fire novices so this could be just us, but I didn’t feel like there was enough kindling / fire lighters for two nights worth of fires; I’m sure we could have asked for more but didn’t want to bother the owners.
"Lovely stay , everything you would need, definitely visit again"
"This was a lovely cottage in a great location."
The hot tub was a great extra and lovely to relax in the evening. The cottage was clean and had all the amenities needed. Only drawback was the bathroom was downstairs
"Had a lovely stay at Lily Cottage was a little surprised that the owners didn’t make contact upon our arrival which has always happened at other properties we have stayed in."
The property was very well appointed for visiting the surrounding area. Think the cottage would benefit from a full length mirror and a plug near a mirror for drying hair.
"We were blessed with amazing weather which meant we could enjoy all the amazing surroundings."
The cottage made the perfect base and was very cosy.
"The hot tub was amazing !"
! The owners were next door if anything was needed, helpful but not intrusive Modern bathroom
"A beautifully kitted out holiday cottage , the owners have thought of every you could need with extras ."
The hot tub is amazing !! A fantastic base for exploring the area . Highly recommend and will definitely stay there again
"The cottage met all our needs and expectations and was good value for the amount paid."
"Perfect location for a quiet break."
"The cottage is ideally situated on the cusp of the forest, which makes it perfect for picking up the footpaths."
As described, it is very well kept, extremely cosy & tranquillity of the area makes this superb for a relaxing break. The hot tub is a lovely touch, which is great to relax in after many miles of walking/cycling, topped off with superb views of the forest. Again, location makes it very easy access to the various attractions around the forest of Dean. We loved this cottage & loved the forest!
"This was a lovely cottage would highly recommend it for a couple."
With the Coronavirus epidemic. The cottage was clean and cared for in a very professional way. We were informed of the changes that were in place, and could supplement items that’s could not be provided. We had the most charming week. Plenty of walks, and the hot tub was a fantastic asset. Well maintained. We were delighted. Enjoyed the glow and warmth of log burner in evenings.
"Good central location and easy to explore the local area and the Forest of Dean."
The cottage was brilliant and had everything you needed. The owners were available if we need help and we also felt safe. We will definitely use this cottage again.
"Beautiful well kept emaculate cottage quiet location fantastic views of the Forest of Dean hot tub an absolute bonus after a day out peaceful setting two pubs close by very friendly staff food highly recommended."
"Not really, good for walkers, good base for exploring area."
however due to covid19 things are not so good.
"Lilly Cottage is a fantastic property with many of the comforts of home."
It is located in a great position for walking in the Forest of Dean, and there is a 45 minute circular walk just a 2 minute walk from the cottage! We loved the hot tub, while we enjoyed the view of the Forest. It was a nice touch to have fresh flowers and chocolates. Thanks very much to the owners for making the cottage so comfortable.
"Lovely clean comfy cottage."
Loved sitting in the hot tub looking across the forest. Great walks straight from front door
"Lilly Cottage is a very comfortable well laid out cottage and the hot tub was lovely after a days walking."
This cottage is in a very quiet area but close to a good local pub, and all areas of the Forest of Dean are easily accessible from the Cottage. We very much enjoyed our stay and the little touches of fresh flowers and chocolates and a Welcome card were very much appreciated.
"A lovely cottage, spotless and finished with some lovely touches."
Great location and we plan to come back again in not too distant future.
"A lovely little break away which was so needed ..."
A lovely little break away which was so needed Gorgeous little cottage with everything we needed Cosy, quiet, perfect Will be back ❤️
"Lovely cottage, was perfect for me and my husband for a short break over new year."
Great facilities, the only thing missing was a pair of scissors. The surrounding area with walks and pubs were fantastic. We would definitely like to return. The hot tub was amazing.
"The accommodation was perfect and we had no problems during our stay."
We had everything we needed. Lilly Cottage was comfy and relaxing! A perfect weekend away
"Lilly Cottage was a wonderful, peaceful little escape on the very edge of the Forest."
Matt and Chloe were welcoming, very friendly and willing to help with any questions etc. The cottage was immaculate as was the hot tub, which had wonderful views into the forest trees. The autumn colours were amazing. The cottage was small but perfectly adequate for the two of us and our little dog. It had everything we needed, was cosy with the added bonus of a wood burning stove, light and tastefully decorated. The bed was extremely comfortable and altogether, we had a very enjoyable and relaxing few days enjoying the Forest walks, nearby harbour walks, tearooms, local pubs
"A lovely little cottage with everything you could possibly require for a short break."
The forest is literally right next door, with a pathway leading to numerous stunning walks being found right at the end of the drive. There’s plenty to do in the local area, and a well-stocked leaflet rack has been kept up to date so you can find activities, walks and more. The local pub was great for drinks and food, once we could tear ourselves away from the hot tub. I would definitely recommend Lilly Cottage.
"Beautiful well maintained property in a stunning location."
Fabulous hosts. Will definitely be returning. Highly recommend.
"The little extras provided for our stay were unexpected but very thoughtful."
"This was a beautiful cottage in a stunning location."
The cottage was very comfortable and spotlessly clean, and the hot tub made for a very relaxing stay. There was also plenty to do in the surrounding area. We had a fantastic stay and would definitely stay there again.
"A really lovely cottage for a very relaxing holiday!"
Great location for walks and local days out. Sitting in the covered hot tub looking out over the forest is absolute bliss :)
"Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lilly Cottage despite a week of poor weather, the wood burning fire and sheltered Jacuzzi were a welcome sight at the end of the day."
We'd recommend visiting Symonds Yat & Goodrich Castle,The Mill Race was a fantastic pub also.
"Great cosy place to stay in a wonderful location."
Really quiet and relaxing and the cottage provided everything we needed during the week. Hosts were really friendly and on hand should we ever need them. Explored the area by foot, bike and canoe and nothing was more than a short drive away (as well as being the Forest on your doorstep!) Great holiday and wonderful cottage!
"Thoroughly enjoyed both the cottage and the area."
Would certainly go back there.
