Very clean and comfortable with plenty of space. An ideal location overlooking fields and pond.

,The location both geographically and physically. A very light airy property and well suited to having a pet with us. Generally very comfortable and also warm when the temperature dropped.

,The location was perfect for both the forest and also for getting into the local towns. Our evening's were spent cosy and warm in front of the log burner. Will hopefully manage to get back in the warmer months.

,Loved this holiday accommodation. The views were beautiful and seeing the Severn Bore was amazing. The lounge was very spacious and seeing the stars from in bed was lovely. An ideal garden for our dog and we braved the cold to sit out a few times.

,Mallard is a cosy, relaxing property with an amazing view over fields and a duck pond that makes you feel you are truly in the countryside and 'getting away from it all'. The wood burning stove is a real plus that added to our experience. We enjoyed being able to go for beautiful walks in the Forest of Dean but come back to enjoy relaxing in pleasant accommodation.

,Very nice cottage in a fantastic setting. You could get to the Forest of Dean directly from the doorstep. The River Severn is within walking distance and you can see the Severn Bore. There are plenty of places of interest within easy driving distance. An ideal location in a beautiful part of the country. The owner is very friendly and keen for you to enjoy yourself.

,A cosy, clean, well maintained cottage in peaceful surroundings. It was well located for access to the Forest of Dean and other tourist attractions. Had friendly hosts.
Mr Kirkup,

,A stunning place with welcoming people, would recommend to family & friends and would go back myself.
Miss Morris, Somerset

,The enclosed garden was excellent because we took our pet dog. There is a wonderful view from the cottage and lovely walks locally and a few minutes by car. The owners made sure that the cottage is very cosy and comfortable and left plenty of logs for the wood burning fire. We will book another stay next year.
Mrs Goodman, Oxfordshire

,The location of the cottage is perfect for a relaxing break and lots of walks. When sat in the garden it's so peaceful. Having the resident swans visit your garden every day was lovely and the enclosed garden is perfect for your dog. The cottage itself has everything you need and it's a real home from home retreat. We will be back!
Miss Edlin, Lincolnshire

,We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were looking for relaxation and beautiful walks and we found them both. The cottage was so warm and cosy, a pleasure to stay in. Our hosts were great, really welcoming and helpful. We are looking forward to a return visit.
Mrs Stephens, Gloucestershire

,The cottage was perfectly sized for us and our puppy. Everything was in great condition and we had absolutely everything we needed for the week we were there. We were given great help by the owner when needed but they did not intrude - it was just the right amount of communication.
Mrs Nicols, Please select

,A cosy cottage just perfect for a romantic break. Quiet but not to far to explore the Forest of Dean, Ross on Wye, Monmouth, Evesham and many other places. We would definitely would like to return. A big thank you to the owners
Mr Flockhart, Devon
March 2016

,Loved the secure garden from the French doors, it was perfect to keep an eye on the dog. The vista from cottage was beautiful and we had a wonderful time in the surrounding forests with help from the dog walking guide in the cottage. The local pub and people were so friendly and accommodating. We will be back for sure.

,It was peaceful with wildlife from the garden and overlooking a pond with heron, ducks and a pheasant etc. It was relaxing after lovely walks and central for exploring the area. This is one excellent cottage and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful. One to definitely revisit.
Mrs Little, Renfrewshire

,Such a lovely place to stay, the setting is beautiful and there is so much to do close-by. The cottage overlooked a pond and we often saw herons - just fantastic, we would recommend it to anyone.
