Forest of Dean Family
- Gate cottage is like going back in time to visit your favourite Granny. It's very well equipped, homely, lovely comfy beds and sofa's; we thought it was charming and very much enjoyed our stay. Lots of attention to detail; a welcome basket of goodies, lovely little garden and a great bird table just in front of the kitchen window which was a flurry of activity the whole time. It is very well located for easy walking access onto the northern fells and the local pub (within very convenient staggering distance) serves great food and beer (it's recently changed hands). If you want a super modern 5 star stay, maybe Gate Cottage isn't for you, and although there is scope for some updating and improvement, it really is a lovely place to stay in a very lovely part of the world.

Hello Julia, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. It's a real cosy cottage isn't it? How wonderful to receive a welcome basket full of delicious goodies. You couldn't have picked a better location for exploring the Lakes and getting out and about on some great walks. The pub grub and beer sound marvellous and well deserved after a day on the fells! I'm thrilled you had a really great stay and I hope you will plan a return visit to the beautiful Lakes very soon.
