    Really enjoyed our stay at Holders Cottage. The accommodation is situated on the owners’ property, near enough if you need assistance but far enough away for privacy. Our two hosts gave us a warm (socially distanced) welcome and we were delighted to receive some home made goodies and fresh produce - a very nice touch. We spent our time exploring the local footpaths and bridleways, enjoying walks in the nearby woodland and countryside. Gloucester and the quays are a short drive away if you want to visit somewhere less rural. The cottage had everything we needed and it was nice to enjoy a quiet drink outside on the decking.

    We were put at ease instantly by the warm welcome by our hosts. As this was the first during COVID break it was comforting to see all the extra effort in preparing the property including hand gel, gloves. As a NHS worker just to relax and unwind was easy especially when we had a lovely welcome basket with a cream tea, all homemade and delicious. The accommodation is to a very high standard and lots of interesting objects. The availability of all the essentials provided in the kitchen is excellent. The provision for pets is excellent and our dogs made 2 new friends  Outside space well designed and loved the fish pond, very relaxing. Close to explore the Forest of Dean.

    Hannah and Karen made us extremely welcome, from providing a goody basket of freshly baked bread and scones, home-made jams and fresh eggs to making sure we had everything we needed. It was such a treat to have freshly laid eggs that we cheekily asked if we could have more and they were very obliging! We were unfortunately late arriving the first night, and the girls kindly booked a table for us at the local pub, the Royal Exchange. The dinner was amazing accompanied by live entertainment. Gloucester Quays was only a couple of miles away and we whiled away a few hours shopping in the designer outlet. The weather was a little rainy but this did not matter as the cottage was wonderfully equipped and we had Netflix! All in all we had a wonderful and relaxing holiday and will definitely be returning.

    Lovely warm welcome from Hannah and Karen. Nice welcome hamper. Throughly enjoyed our stay and will come again.

    The cottage was perfect, Karen and Hannah made us feel very welcome. The doggies loved their wrapped Christmas presents under the tree and we loved our welcome hamper with a chilled bottle of bubbly and our mulled wine. The cottage was cosy and the christmas decs and lights were lovely. The location is great with lots of walks on the doorstep and the much needed dog wash to clean their muddy paws. What topped the week off was our amazing Christmas dinner, it was our best ever! Karens food is fab, We also enjoyed some of her home made sausage rolls. Thanks and we cannot wait to return soon for another few days Jo, Sofie, Rolo and Pebbles

    Firstly, the welcome pack was very good and the bed was extremely comfortable. Unfortunately, the property and location wasn't for us. It is obviously very small and we would have struggled if we had had a week booked. There is no washing machine / dryer so not sure what you are supposed to do with wet clothing etc. There was a surprising amount of road noise which would only get worse if you had the windows open. When we were told there was a cockerell pretty much outside, my heart sank. Luckily it was dark until about 7.30 but who wants to be woken up at 04.00 in the summer? The underfloor heating had a controller which didn't seem to work properly. Our dog went mad when we first got there, trying to get under the settee and the cabinet below the TV. That was because there were old dog chews and treats plus a lot of dust and dirt there - not pleasant. Could not understand why in such a small property, you would have two big cabinets full of old crockery you are told not to touch / use. Seems such a waste of space. Lastly, we found some mouldy bread in one of the tins. It's that lack of attention to detail that would stop us returning. Getting around or through Gloucester in the morning or late afternoon is difficult as the roads are extremely busy. We wish you well but wanted to be honest in our comments so others can make an informed judgement before booking.

    Ideally situated for exploring the Forest of Dean and around Gloucester itself. Walks from the door, weather permitting. We would like to return when it is a little less muddy. Holders Cottage is a perfect space for 2, compact and comfortable.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our break at Holders Cottage. Very welcoming, comfortable and one of the best equipped places we've stayed at in a long time. A great place to get away from it all but also close to Gloucester to explore. Holders Cottage is not just a generic holiday cottage - it has a lovely feel and amazing fixtures and finishing touches. Super dog friendly as well. We will definitely be back!

    Excellent equipped cottage with very friendly owners, everything you ever needed.

    Wow what a little gem, perfect for relaxing. You get everything you need, fab welcome hamper, milk, homemade bread, muffins, homemade jam and marmalade and butter and fresh eggs from their chickens. All kitchen condiments, spices etc. Netflix to while away wet days. Very comfy throughout. Hannah and Karen are such nice people and always helpful with info. As for the dog, well he loved the field and walks. Even had his own hamper, dog bowls, towel and drying mitten. One happy boy. Lovely seating area outdoors, glorious morning sunset views. You will not be disappointed. We will be back.

    We have just had a wonderful stay at Holders Cottage, from the fabulous welcome hamper to the idyllic location, everything was perfect. Karen and Hannah are so welcoming and went beyond the call of duty to make our stay as perfect as possible. The cottage/cabin is extremely comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The outside under cover area was great for evening drinks and dining as a table and chairs are also provided, plus the view is wonderful! We had plenty of privacy but if we needed anything, the hosts were available to assist. We also had our dog with us which worked extremely well with plenty of walks on the doorstep. Karen is an excellent cook and as well as delicious jam, marmalade and homemade bread to welcome us, she prepared wonderful burgers and various relishes for a BBQ at the end of our stay. All in all we would thoroughly recommend Holders Cottage and cannot thank Karen and Hannah enough for making our stay so memorable!
