The family from Sweden stayed in the cottage. They enjoyed walk to Goodrich and games including a Swedish game KUB in the grounds of Pencraig
Plenty of space so everyone could get together in the evening but break into smaller groups during the day

Lovely quirky cottage in a great location to explore the local area and Ross on Wye. We arrived at night so the entrance was quite difficult to find…. It’s on the same side and entrance as the a40 Diner. Everything else was a doddle - and our dog loved the dedicated garden space at the back

Katherine - October 2023

Had a wonderful birthday weekend escape in this lovely cottage. Very much enjoyed the fresh eggs and meeting the dogs and chickens! Anastasia was so welcoming and helpful, made it very easy to co-ordinate our group travelling from different directions. Thank you very much.

Tom - September 2023

Lovely cottage. Everything was easy and we felt right at home. Anastasia's communication was fantastic, and the check-in/out was very straightforward. The area is beautiful, and walking options straight from the house are possible.

Adrian - August 2023

Spacious, clean and quirky. The kids loved the "upside down" layout and we all found the large lounge for evening relaxation. A perfect place for a family gathering.

Teresa - August 2023

We had a wonderful holiday at Anastasia's lovely house. The upstairs lounge was a fabulous place to relax in the evenings.

Pippa - July 2023

We had the best time staying at the cottage, 2 adults and 4 kids and we had so much space. The whole place is immaculate, it’s really cosy and decorated true to the style of the building which makes it homely. Beds are comfy and the kitchen is well equipped. Brilliant location for exploring the Forest of Dean. Alison who manages the bookings and Anastasia who owns it were both so lovely and friendly and helpful, great communication. We were not bothered at all by a hen party in the main house, the walls are so thick, there’s so much space and you have your own private garden and parking. We were given lovely fresh eggs during our stay and the whole visit was welcoming from start to finish. We will definitely be back, thank you!

Had a great stay at Carefree Cottage.
Perfect base to fish the Wye.
Thank you!

Stephen - July 2023

The grounds of the big house are beautiful and our kids loved running around and exploring every section of the garden. The cottage is spacious and has lovely views from every window. Alison was so friendly and helpful.

Really good two night stay with 3 adults and 4 kids. Perfect for what we were after.


Andrew - May 2023

We spent two nights at Carefree Cottage with the kids and dog. From the moment we arrived, Ana and Gordon made us feel totally at home and showed us round the cottage.
We had a lovely time and had everything we needed. The fresh eggs, milk tea and coffee were a bonus and came in handy the next morning.
Thank you for a relaxing stay, we would love to come back.

Stephen - May 2023

Anastasia was an impeccable host. Our stay was everything we needed for two families coming together. Space to play. Chat. BBQ.
There’s so much to do in the area and we’ll definitely be back ❤️
Thank you!!

Emerald - May 2023

Carefree cottage was absolutely perfect for our stay. The hosts were really friendly and welcoming and the cottage was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. We enjoyed using the BBQ area and taking in the beautiful surroundings. Thank you
