“Warm homely cottage with lots of local attractions”

We needed a house for Christmas and the New Year to be able to get our widespread family together. Hectors House was perfect - warm and big enough to all sit together, but with room for us to spread out if we wanted to.
Would certainly be happy to come back again.

Absolutely delightful cottage. Very well equipped, spacious and a beautiful garden. Much to do in the Forest of Dean, Hectors is the ideal base. So much so that we need a return trip to see all, we loved the few days where we just stayed & enjoyed the peace in the garden. The cottage was home from home.

Hectors house was a lovely well equipped cottage and a good base to go exploring from. The living room/kitchen space was great to get everyone together. The garden was lovely and the large patio table was brilliant for eating dinner in the sun. The bedrooms were comfortable and the cottage had an all round homely feel. However, unfortunately the floor had not been hoovered and was covered in dog hairs. For someone with allergies this caused a bit of a problem for the weekend.
So all in all a good place to go and relax and spend time with friends just take plenty of antihistamine if needed!!

Simon, as you know I was very saddened to read this. I'm at a loss to know why this oversight occurred as our cleaner is usually exemplary. As it was just the one room, I can only assume 'human error'. I have taken this on board for future reference and thank you for bringing it to my attention, albeit through feedback on the website!
