  • Ivy Cottage, Deanwood Holiday Cottages, Forest of Dean Holiday Accommodation. 4 – 11 September 2017. ‘Comfortable cottage and very well equipped. Would it be possible to remove the stairgate when children are not staying? It is very easy – and painful! – to trip over it. Pity about the weather but we’ve had a good week.’ Jenny Hyams and Margaret Bingham.
    Note from Elaine. I am pleased that you enjoyed your week despite the weather! The stairgate is usually left there not just for children but also to stop dogs going upstairs. However, if it is not being used and it is in the way it can certainly be removed.

We ate at the Nags Head – great food and friendly welcome. We also had to visit Severnside vets which was very handy and very helpful. Our only critism of the cottages is that we really struggled to cut up veg! A really good sharp knife would be a good addition 🙂 Thank you for a great stay!’ Rachel, Andy, Sam, Toby and Jazzy the dog.  Note from Elaine. Thanks for your helpful comments. I will check the knives and either sharpen or replace 🙂
