    It was fantastic couldn't ask for better the accommodation was excellent. And what you got for money was brilliant couldn't ask for better. The surrounding area was excellent, going back down memory lane from 20yrs ago couldn't ask for better.

    We stayed at the Nook over the Christmas period and were welcomed into the warm cottage complete with very tasteful Christmas decorations. This was, without doubt, the warmest, best equipped accommodation we have stayed in and we have stayed in quite a few. Richard and Lisa, the owners were very friendly and discrete. We would love to return to this cottage, perhaps in spring time where, the local countryside and wildlife could be better appreciated.

    My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at The Nook. It was a good base for us. We enjoyed the quiet and restful nature of the property. Our hosts were unobtrusive but welcoming. All the fixtures and fittings were of a high spec and the cottage was very comfortable.

    One of the best cottages we’ve stayed in. Comfy sofas and beds; great television with plenty of dvds. Perfect location for driving a short distance and having a walk. Very pleasant hosts; nothing was too much trouble.

    Smaller than expected but very nicely decorated and lots of nice touches. Owners very friendly and welcoming. Just found the outside space limited and would have preferred some sunny outside space to ourselves. Property is central but close to a road although not too busy. Forest areas are close to visit.

    Really comfortable sofas and beds. The addition of Sky Q, great WiFi and a library of current films make the cottage exemplary. The owners left welcome food, drink,toiletries, logs and even charcoal for the BBQ. We went exhausted and left refreshed. The cottage is private and quiet and wonderful value for money. We would highly recommend a stay here.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Nook, one of the best cottages we’ve ever stayed in. Our hosts were very welcoming and on-hand if needed but never intrusive. Spotlessly clean and well equipped, the accommodation was a perfect base for the two of us to explore the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley with plenty of walks nearby. Would recommend without hesitation

    Very well presented cottage. The standard of furnishing was very high. The owners who live next door were very friendly and helpful without being intrusive. It was nice to have 6 free range eggs from their chickens included in our welcome pack. And the shower gel, hand wash and body lotion in bathroom was a nice touch. We would definitely recommend stay again.

    Thanks to the owners for a lovely undisturbed week in their cozy, clean and comfortable home from home. There were lots of little extras we didn't expect and we feel the owners went above and beyond what was expected. The weather wasn't kind to us but we couldn't fault the accommodation - especially the comfy bed and soft deeply cushioned sofas. We enjoyed a stroll to Lydney Harbour along the river and roamed around the Forest of Dean as well as visiting places further afield. Have already recommended to family and friends!
