“Wonderful Cottage in Wonderful Settings”
Reviewed February 26, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Wonderful Cottage in Wonderful Settings.
On holiday with my Mother and our 2 dogs
Lovely welcome from both Sue and Mike. The cottage was spotlessly clean and so well equipped with everything needed. The downstairs bedroom and wet room were ideal for my Mother while upstairs I had the choice of 2 rooms and a bathroom all to myself.
Our 2 dogs were very comfortable and felt at home straight away.
Forest of Dean is a beautiful place with so much to do and so suitable for all abilities.
We will be back now we have found this cottage we will use it each time we come to this area (usually twice a year and twice a year in a different area)

“Had a great time, cottage excelled expectations.”
Reviewed February 23, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

What a lovely cottage, my family and I had a great time. Sue the owner had left extras for us when we arrived, coffee, tea, milk and some very tasty biscuits. The cottage was cosy, clean, warm and very close to The Forest Of Dean. We had fish and chips from the shop in blakeney which were as my daughter said " the best she'd ever tasted " . Nearly forgot to say the beds were very comfortable. Hoping to revisit again sometime.

“A very warm welcome”
Reviewed October 29, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Cider Press Cottage does not fit neatly into many typical categories of cottages we have visited! The owners are exceptionally welcoming, and handily placed if questions arise. Three good sized bedrooms and two good bathrooms, with a useful landing/balcony. Unusually, all the annoying to bring little items like hand-soap and dishwash tabs were provided. Four adults and two children fitted easily into the cottage. The 'cottagy' decor/furniture, not normally our favourite style, was surprisingly comfy and relaxing. Excellent situation down a long driveway and right on the doorstep of the southeastern edge of the actual forest. Good for bike washing too. We walked, ran and cycled from our door, and attractions such as the sculpture park, Clearwell Caves and Puzzle Wood were all within a short drive. Saw shooting stars, but no wild boar!

“Cider Press - how we've missed you!”
Reviewed October 18, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We are regular visitors to Cider Press but circumstances have kept us away for a while but it was so good to go back! Facilities excellent everything you could possibly need you could say it has all the comforts of home! We took Mum with us this time and she loved it, warm cosy and plenty of places to visit was how she described it. If you have dogs you really should visit Cider Press the garden is safe, walks on the door step and friends next door for them to rub noses through the fence with!
10/10 for a perfect cottage and wonderful hosts!

“Lovely cottage, friendly owners.”
Reviewed August 15, 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 August 11, 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 July 21, 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.
