    This outstanding, bespoke, single-storey Gloucestershire holiday cottage is situated on the outskirts of the Gloucestershire village of Mitcheldean, on the edge of the magnificent Royal Forest of Dean. Lovingly hand built with timber from the forest itself, this delightful Gloucestershire holiday cottage offers warm and cosy accommodation, with a wealth of character features including beautiful beams, stained glass windows and wooden floors, which seamlessly combine with contemporary modern comforts. The spacious open plan living area in your Gloucestershire holiday cottage features a handmade kitchen, dining area and sitting area, which has the added benefit of a coal-effect electric fire and overlooks the pretty cottage garden; with a private patio area, the garden is a perfect place to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this unspoilt area. The forest offers many stunning walks and cycle routes, which can all be enjoyed from the doorstep of your Gloucestershire cottage. If you fancy a day trip, why not visit the historic waterfront city of Gloucester with its Victorian Docklands, magnificent Norman cathedral and bustling city centre boasting a superb range of shops, pubs and restaurants?

The market town of Ross-on-Wye is close by, in Herefordshire, and offers a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, while a short drive away is the historic city of Gloucester, home to Victorian Docklands and a Norman Cathedral, the cloisters of which were used as a location in the Harry Potter films.

    Mr Riden – 1 Aug 2021
    " Little bit far out of the village, you could not walk to the pubs. But everything else was great, owners super friendly and helpful, 2 beautiful dogs "
    Mrs Britton – 1 Jul 2021
    " Lots of nice extra touches provided including nice toiletries, very generous welcome basket, loads of cleaning and household sundries, books, DVD's, games, local maps. Very clean and comfortable, lovely private garden to enjoy. The owners and their two dogs were very welcoming and helpful. We would highly recommend. "

    " We were greeted with a basket of goodies and nothing was too much rouble. Richard even gave us a lift when we had broken down. The cottage was such an inviting and quite luxurious space, where we very quickly settled. The location was beautiful, and a quite retreat that was just what we needed. I've never slept so well away from home. We will be returning as soon as possible. "

It was comfortable with most of the modern facilities you could wish for although we found the fridge a little small and we could not find (probably our fault) a cheese grater. The setting is idyllic and very peaceful.” "

No internet/wifi and next to no mobile signal meant we were out of contact (very peaceful once you are used to it!); and probably due to bad weather, there was some variable reception on some tv channels. The folly is down a long narrow track on the side of a hill, in a secluded part of the owner's garden. Accessibility: There is a narrow gravel path down a slope from the car park space then up to the property, probably 20-30 yards, and in all there are then four steps up when you get there. Low doorways in places so taller people need to stoop to avoid headaches. Quite a narrow gate on the way in, might be a squeeze with a big car. The owner has a couple of friendly dogs who come and say hello now and again. Mitcheldean and other local towns are pretty ordinary, but the property is very close to the Forest of Dean. "
    Mrs Lewis
    " “The owners were very discreet but available if needed. I do think a note to say there are dogs that do visit the garden from time to time as though I do adore animals, to be advised in advance would have been good. The location is perfect being only a few miles from the town. The forest walks are on the doorstep & are fabulous. Thank you” "

    Mr Rendell
    " “So warm and comfortable and everything was provided, and as it was our first self catering holiday it was so good. Slept very well and feel so much better for our holiday in the Forest of Dean. All places that we wanted to see were all within the place range, so easy to travel to and return to "our home" each day. We used our sat nav to get us there but reading instructions of how to get there we didn't see 'Rank Xerox' building and according to Richard it has been closed for about 9 years and is just used as small business. Ian used to work for rank xerox!” "

Owner met us on arrival and went through all the relevant details with us. Felt like we were in a fairy tale the whole time we were there. Garden area is so still and calm, all you can hear are the birds singing. Anyone who likes gorgeous quirky little places with peace and quiet will adore this little place like we did. Love it.” "

Michael and his wife Sue were welcoming and we had a guided tour of our cute little home for the week. This is a unique property and it's our intention to go back in warmer weather, there is so much to see in this area and offers plenty of choice for everyone."

    "They had a lot of snow - 1 foot deep so we got our car snowed in and had to walk everywhere! It was magical. The hosts were extremely helpful and kind and helped us to get up the track back to the main road when we were leaving as the ice was terrible. The only thing I would say is there is no WiFi and our mobile phone signal was rubbish, so we had no access to the internet."

    "Sue and Richard were so welcoming and friendly. The cottage is gorgeous, very homely and a real treat. We had a fantastic holiday in the peace and quiet. Its secluded but also not far from many tourist spots. We will be back and looking forward to seeing Harry and the rest of the dogs :-))"

    "Beautifully crafted cottage, just like a fairytale. The pictures honestly do not do this place justice. If anything I would describe it as a picturesque re-imagination of "snow white & the seven dwarfs cottage" or a house scene from "the legend of zelda". Owners leave you in peace, to your own devices and beautiful covers for the windows for extra privacy. A very romantic place in the middle of nowhere, only a few hamlet-like houses surrounding, a distance down the road & the woodland just behind for peaceful walks. Perfect for a couple seeking a romantic getaway together. There are plenty of movies, board games and the remarkably quaint kitchen to keep oneself occupied. Very warm interior (which is one of the major things I look for as I tend to get cold easily) and the very romantic fire place in the front room, complimented by the cow-skin rug, is very effective at keeping you warm on those winter nights, snuggling on the sofa with a movie!!! We will definitely be returning! A romantic weekend I will never forget..."

    "When we arrived at the cottage the owners were there to meet us they were both very nice people and gave us info on the cottage and surrounding area they left us alone all week but were there if you needed help they introduced us to there dogs . It's a real little hobbits cottage and very romantic with lovley natural wood made from the surrounding Forest of Dean . The location was nice if you like to get away from it all with lots of walks from the cottage . I loved the cottage and its great for a get away from it all type hoilday I did love it but I think next time I would like to be more in a village setting with a pub near by . Saying that I would come back to this cottage if I need some peace n rest type hoilday ."

    "Brookbank folly, was perfect, relaxed, chilled, and quiet, was a fabulous week. That myself and partner enjoyed, would definatly return, was a very warm welcome we had on arrival :). Had some fantastic photo opportunity while exploring the towns and local facilities. Dean heritage centre with the gruffalo made the stay even better, also taking number of visits to adams farm for both the animals and milk was even better!! Can't wait to visit again! Thanks x"

Richard and Sue were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for you with a lovely welcome basket, I can,t recommend this property enough anybody that goes there will not be disappointed.Pete and June from Cleethorpes"

    "We chose this cottage for its quirkiness and also because of other very positive reviews.We loved every minute of our stay and could have stayed another week.Plenty to do in the daytime.We visited caves,cycled in the forest of dean,visited symonds yat for walking and cycled along the river to Monmouth.Spent our evenings cooking in the well equipped kitchen and chilling out on the settee in the lounge which puts down into a bed.As we had great weather we were able to sit out in the front garden.So peaceful at the cottage as on a no through road so minimal traffic only to other propertys nearby.Owners have three dogs that also come to visit and buzzards circling above.The owner was very nice,very unintrusive but helpful if asked anything.The cottage is amazing and very well built.Lots of quirky points to it.We both loved it and would recommend it to anyone.Cant think of anything negative."

    "What an amazing little cottage! This little, secluded bolt hole was fantastic and we loved every minute. The owners kindly left a great welcome pack and the little touches, like fresh milk in the fridge, were really appreciated. Just on the edge of the Forest of Dean, this was a great location and was perfect for exploring. If you are looking for somewhere to eat we recommend The Kings Head (9 miles away on the a40 towards Gloucester) where the homemade Steak & Kidney pie was to die for! The cottage is some way down a little winding lane but is easy to find. We could get mobile phone signals but no internet access with Three Mobile. This place is highly recommended, great value, and we will definately be going back for a second visit."

    "Gorgeous cottage in a lovely peaceful setting that is also a great base for exploring the forest of dean and surrounding area. The cottage has everything you could need for a romantic and relaxing stay and is just fantastic. Some points to note (in no particular order): Take slippers, the floors are really quite cold! The windows and door are both a bit draughty but the heaters work well and their use is included in the hire price. The lane to and from the cottage is a little scary (some of the locals are a bit mad on the driving front) due to being very narrow. We got a lovely welcome pack of wine, crisps, porridge, milk and marmalade. There was also some coffee and tea there so we didn't have to shop straightaway. Mitcheldean has a co-op and small local store for food, plus takeaways, but no sit down restaurant. The front steps can get a little slippery and be careful not to turn the outside light switch off - you'll never find the keyhole without it! Overall it's a fab little place and we would highly recommend it."

    "My wife and I recently stayed at this delightfully charming and quirky little cottage. The owner, Richard, was extremely friendly and helpful. His two dogs are seriously lovely. The cottage itself was great. If you are looking for a place to stay whilst visiting the area, this is a great place to be."
    - Mrs Fulton, September 2016
    "This is an idyllic retreat snuggled into a wooded hillside with lots of delightful design details and everything carefully thought out. From the cottage, there are a lot of walks in the surrounding woodlands and other interesting places to visit. With Asda doing a home delivery, you don't need to go near towns and with very intermittent mobile signal, it really is a get away from it all location."

    "This is an 'Escape Location Rental'. The entrance via Jubilee Road is single lane and requires care negotiating. TV OK, no Wi-Fi and not great phone coverage (3 & Vodaphone). If you bring food (Not frozen - no deep freeze) for the period of the rental and some good books you could stay the in the cottage. Locally there is a small Co-Op in Mitcheldean and a large one in Cinderford. It would be a shame to stay in since the location on the north east corner of Forest of Dean is perfect for exploring the forest. It is also a good location for sight seeing along the river Wye or along the Severn."

    "The owners were very discreet but available if needed. I do think a note to say there are dogs that do visit the garden from time to time as though I do adore animals, to be advised in advance would have been good. The location is perfect being only a few miles from the town. The forest walks are on the doorstep & are fabulous. Thank you"

    - Mrs Lawrance, October 2018
    "So warm and comfortable and everything was provided, and as it was our first self catering holiday it was so good. Slept very well and feel so much better for our holiday in the Forest of Dean. All places that we wanted to see were all within the place range, so easy to travel to and return to "our home" each day. We used our sat nav to get us there but reading instructions of how to get there we didn't see 'Rank Xerox' building and according to Richard it has been closed for about 9 years and is just used as small business. Ian used to work for rank xerox!"
    - Mrs Van Der Voort, September 2018
    "The owners were extremely friendly but discrete. Everything you thought you wanted was available and even things you didn't know you wanted was provided. I would recommend to family and friends. A successful holiday. Yes, we would use again. Thank you."

    "Real little "Hobbit " house in the most wonderful location. Folly was very warm and cosy and very well equipped, even had electric blanket on the bed. Owner met us on arrival and went through all the relevant details with us. Felt like we were in a fairy tale the whole time we were there. Garden area is so still and calm, all you can hear are the birds singing. Anyone who likes gorgeous quirky little places with peace and quiet will adore this little place like we did. Love it."

This cottage is well situated for visiting local beauty spots and long walks in the Forest. The owners are lovely and very helpful. the two dogs are so much fun. A fantastic place for a break."

    "Gorgeous cottage in a lovely peaceful setting that is also a great base for exploring the forest of dean and surrounding area. The cottage has everything you could need for a romantic and relaxing stay and is just fantastic. Some points to note (in no particular order): Take slippers, the floors are really quite cold! The windows and door are both a bit draughty but the heaters work well and their use is included in the hire price. The lane to and from the cottage is a little scary (some of the locals are a bit mad on the driving front) due to being very narrow. We got a lovely welcome pack of wine, crisps, porridge, milk and marmalade. There was also some coffee and tea there so we didn't have to shop straightaway. Mitcheldean has a co-op and small local store for food, plus takeaways, but no sit down restaurant. The front steps can get a little slippery and be careful not to turn the outside light switch off - you'll never find the keyhole without it! Overall it's a fab little place and we would highly recommend it."

    " “What an amazing little cottage! This little, secluded bolt hole was fantastic and we loved every minute. The owners kindly left a great welcome pack and the little touches, like fresh milk in the fridge, were really appreciated. Just on the edge of the Forest of Dean, this was a great location and was perfect for exploring. If you are looking for somewhere to eat we recommend The Kings Head (9 miles away on the a40 towards Gloucester) where the homemade Steak & Kidney pie was to die for! The cottage is some way down a little winding lane but is easy to find. We could get mobile phone signals but no internet access with Three Mobile. This place is highly recommended, great value, and we will definately be going back for a second visit.” "

    " The owners were friendly and welcoming but not at all intrusive. It is full of character, warm, quiet and perfect for two people to enjoy a peaceful rest from the world. The Forest of Dean with its excellent walks and cycle trails is easily accessible from the cottage and we also visited Hereford and the Waterways Museum at Gloucester. "

    "Beautifully crafted cottage, just like a fairytale. The pictures honestly do not do this place justice. If anything I would describe it as a picturesque re-imagination of "snow white & the seven dwarfs cottage" or a house scene from "the legend of zelda". Owners leave you in peace, to your own devices and beautiful covers for the windows for extra privacy. A very romantic place in the middle of nowhere, only a few hamlet-like houses surrounding, a distance down the road & the woodland just behind for peaceful walks. Perfect for a couple seeking a romantic getaway together. There are plenty of movies, board games and the remarkably quaint kitchen to keep oneself occupied. Very warm interior (which is one of the major things I look for as I tend to get cold easily) and the very romantic fire place in the front room, complimented by the cow-skin rug, is very effective at keeping you warm on those winter nights, snuggling on the sofa with a movie!!! We will definitely be returning! A romantic weekend I will never forget..."

    " The owners were very welcoming and left us a welcome pack. The surrounding area was lovely, the Forest of Dean delivered a wonderful walk with hooting owls at night. "

    " “Sue and Richard were so welcoming and friendly. The cottage is gorgeous, very homely and a real treat. We had a fantastic holiday in the peace and quiet. Its secluded but also not far from many tourist spots. We will be back and looking forward to seeing Harry and the rest of the dogs :-))” "

    " The Cottage was very cosy and comfortable. We were able to enjoy the sound of the Owls calling in the evening. The owners were very welcoming. A lovely basket of goodies was awaiting us in the Cottage on arrival. This I found to be a very welcoming and a thoughtful touch. We hope to make a return visit and we could happily have stayed a second week! "
