Just spent two weeks in Orchard cottage and what can I say apart from excellent, cottage is lovely, well equipped and in a great location for exploring Forrest of Dean & the Cotswolds. Garden is great & spacious with plenty of areas to sit so if sunny as it was for the whole two weeks can always find somewhere in the shade and with a whole variety of animals ducks, squirrels, birds, rabbits & hedgehogs along with their young. Plenty of information leaflets on things to do/places to go and Clive & Kaeren know a lot about the area so can tell you anything about where you are thinking of going and are there if you need them for anything.
Was greeted on arrival by Clive and Karen, very welcoming and friendly. I am disabled and they both had my car unloaded and in the cottage in the blink of an eye. The cottage is mostly very accessible with 2 small acceptions there is a step into the cottage, but Clive had placed are large intermediary step at the door so it was easy, the only other thing was there is a Large step into the shower and although Clive had very kindly but a grab handle in the shower I was pleased I had taken my shower step with me. So if you can overcome these things things it is suitable for disabled people in my opinion The cottage was very comftable with everything you need for your holiday, nice lounge with TV , large dinning table with 6 chairs, two good size bedrooms 1 twin, 1 double, nice bathroom with plenty of towels, Clive and Karen have been very thoughtful when equipping the cottage, lots of leaflets about all areas in and around Gloucestershire.
Would thoroughly recommend it , apart from the terrible weather this week.
The grounds of the cottage are very well kept with seats all over to sit and watch the wildlife coming and going.
Hosts Clive and Kaeren were very friendly, very helpful. Excellent location for Cotswolds, Malverns and many other areas of interest and beauty. Highly recommended.
We came to orchard cottage for the first time in August last year. We enjoyed our stay so much we returned for a week in February. We stayed in the wood cabin which is an ample size for 2 people. Our hosts Clive and Kaeren couldnt be more helpful. They are extremely knowledgeable about the surrounding areas and amenities. We will be returning again in august for a long weekend. Thanks again for making our stay so relaxed. Clive and kaeren we'll see you in August. We cant wait ☺
