Very Good

This is a great place to unwind , quirky is not the word ! You keep looking for Snow White or the dwarfs to march around the corner . So close to the Forest of Dean

“This beautiful Hobit-hole is just perfect.”

Reviewed 28 Apr 2014

What an amazing little cottage! This little, secluded bolt hole was fantastic and we loved every minute. The owners kindly left a great welcome pack and the little touches, like fresh milk in the fridge, were really appreciated. Just on the edge of the Forest of Dean, this was a great location and was perfect for exploring. If you are looking for somewhere to eat we recommend The Kings Head (9 miles away on the a40 towards Gloucester) where the homemade Steak & Kidney pie was to die for! The cottage is some way down a little winding lane but is easy to find. We could get mobile phone signals but no internet access with Three Mobile. This place is highly recommended, great value, and we will definately be going back for a second visit.

“The most relaxing stay we have had at a cottage.”

We chose this cottage for its quirkiness and also because of other very positive reviews.We loved every minute of our stay and could have stayed another week.Plenty to do in the daytime.We visited caves,cycled in the forest of dean,visited symonds yat for walking and cycled along the river to Monmouth.Spent our evenings cooking in the well equipped kitchen and chilling out on the settee in the lounge which puts down into a bed.As we had great weather we were able to sit out in the front garden.So peaceful at the cottage as on a no through road so minimal traffic only to other propertys nearby.Owners have three dogs that also come to visit and buzzards circling above.The owner was very nice,very unintrusive but helpful if asked anything.The cottage is amazing and very well built.Lots of quirky points to it.We both loved it and would recommend it to anyone.Cant think of anything negative.

Brookbank folly, was perfect, relaxed, chilled, and quiet, was a fabulous week. That myself and partner enjoyed, would definatly return, was a very warm welcome we had on arrival :). Had some fantastic photo opportunity while exploring the towns and local facilities. Dean heritage centre with the gruffalo made the stay even better, also taking number of visits to adams farm for both the animals and milk was even better!! Can't wait to visit again! Thanks x

“Very nice cottage in a lovley peaceful setting”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2012

When we arrived at the cottage the owners were there to meet us they were both very nice people and gave us info on the cottage and surrounding area they left us alone all week but were there if you needed help they introduced us to there dogs . It's a real little hobbits cottage and very romantic with lovley natural wood made from the surrounding Forest of Dean . The location was nice if you like to get away from it all with lots of walks from the cottage . I loved the cottage and its great for a get away from it all type hoilday I did love it but I think next time I would like to be more in a village setting with a pub near by . Saying that I would come back to this cottage if I need some peace n rest type hoilday .

Sue and Richard were so welcoming and friendly. The cottage is gorgeous, very homely and a real treat. We had a fantastic holiday in the peace and quiet. Its secluded but also not far from many tourist spots. We will be back and looking forward to seeing Harry and the rest of the dogs :-))
