    Wonderful cottage. Small village so need a car. Cottage has everything you need and nice welcome tea. Great pubs in local area. Recommend puzzlewood and international birds of prey centre.

    Plenty of space for our grown up children to spend a few days with us (and get a free holiday!) Just us a our dog for the rest of the week to enjoy the comfortable lounge and alfresco breakfast in the spring sunshine. Very dog friendly so perfect for us.

    This is a very well-equipped cottage in a beautiful location. Beds were very comfortable and the cream tea on arrival and the availability of Sky Sports were a real bonus. The local shop was just about walkable and there was a large playing field nearby with two well-equipped children' s play areas.

    A lovely cottage in a quiet village was what we (7 of us) we're looking for. This didn't disappoint, we were welcomed with cream teas and amazing raspberry and white chocolate muffins. All the home comforts were in the house. We all had a fabulous time. Thank you!

    We had a perfect break at Oak Bank Cottage in between Christmas and New Year as a group of five with family dog. The cottage was spotlessly clean, very spacious and had everything we could possibly have needed - nothing was forgotten and the owner also made us a really lovely cream tea and fantastic homemade muffins, which was nice to find on arrival! There's a fantastic pub down the road within easy walking distance and some nice walks round and about. The cottage is also in a very peaceful position overlooking the valley. The owner was very helpful in responding to some issues that we had during our stay and overall, we have a very relaxing festive break. Thank you!

    Beautiful place, great location with amazing views. The only and main issue for us was we hadn't realised dogs weren't allowed upstairs so we didn't get great night's sleeps, had we known we wouldn't of booked this for this particular occasion.

    Can’t wait to return to this fabulous cottage. It looked great in the brocher - even better in real life and was comfortable with everything you could want for people and animals. You can even take your horse on holiday and there are livery facilities. Gloucester and Ross on Wye were both an easy drive. Up the road was the International Centre for Birds of Prey at Newent (we had met at the cottage to go to the owl night flights and hog roast held there on winter evenings). The owner offer a range of useful services and we arrived to a sumptuous cream tea. You are welcome to trek up the hill to the farm too. We had a great time - so much to do! Return visit essential for us.
