“Lovely cottage, friendly owners.”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have just returned from a five day stay at Cider Press Cottage. This was the first holiday we have had with our small dog. The cottage is in a beautiful location and is fully enclosed which is ideal if you have a dog. The owners were very helpful and friendly and made us feel very welcome as soon as we arrived. Milk, biscuits, coffee, tea and even dog treats were provided along with everything else you need to enjoy your holiday!
The cottage is situated in a very rural area with some lovely walks right outside the front door.
We will definitely be returning to this cottage and would recommend a stay here!!

“Top class accommodation in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Exactly what it says on the tin and more. From the moment we booked this cottage the owners Sue and Mick could not have been more helpful. On arrival they were there to welcome us and have mastered the art of being available without being intrusive. We arrived to a lovely welcome pack for my 60th birthday and the cottage was clean, comfortable and the only thing you need to bring is yourself and food, everything else was provided. I would recommend a visit to Symonds Yat for the view and Mallards Pike for walks (book early if you want to Go Ape) We visited The George at Ayleburton for my birthday and the food was delicious. The forest provided lovely walks and we ate outside most nights making full use of the BBQ. The beds are the comfiest ever and even the weather was gorgeous!!

“Beautiful location and excellent accomodation”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Sue and Mick at Cider Press Cottage made our stay very welcoming. The cottage was in a beautiful location near the Forest of Dean and was fully equipped with everything we could possibly need: towels, linen, as well as cleaning products for the dishwasher and washing machine and tea coffee and milk. The cottage was decorated nicely and felt very homely. Also good for disabled access as it has a downstairs bedroom with wet room. The best bit was having the living room doors open out on to a lovely patio with seating and BBQ - great for the summer. Definitely would go again.

“Very good property in ideal location”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Six of us stayed for three nights and all agreed it was a very good property. It is clean, well equipped and comfortable. The garden is perfect and like the house very well equipped. We ate every meal outside. The location also suited us as we went walking every day and there is direct access to the Forest. The owners were most welcoming and helpful. Our only slight reservation was that we would have preferred a conventional shower rather than a wet room.

“Fabulous cottage, location and owners - you won't be disappointed!”
Reviewed 3 March 2014 for a stay in February 2013

From the moment we arrived complete with dogs we couldn't have been made more welcome. The cottage was warm, comfortable with everything you could possibly need - even a bowl for the dogs!
The ground floor bedroom with an adjacent wet room was great for us and with two further bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor it offered excellent family accommodation. The kitchen had everything we needed with all the usual appliances you would expect - dishwasher, washer dryer, microwave etc. an added bonus for us was the fully enclosed garden so we knew the dogs were always safe.It's excellent location allowed for lovely walks through the Forest of Dean and for less energetic days there's plenty of places to shop nearby. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to Cider Press cottage!
