Clean and comfortable accommodation in a beautiful setting. We had a very peaceful and relaxing holiday and we look forward to a return visit.

We did not have to worry about a single thing regarding the cottage; it was wonderful, well appointed and perfectly situated. The owners were very nice. Therefore,we could just go ahead and enjoy the beautiful Forest of Dean and all the walks and visits.

A lovely comfortable cottage, very quiet at the end of a track. It was lovely and peaceful with everything in it you would need. The owner was very helpful.

A real escape from the hustle and bustle. Time to rewind and recharge batteries. The furnishings were modern and tasteful, and all included all you could need to chill out. Set in beautiful countryside, albeit a little remote if you like to be close to a town an amenities.

A great location, perfect for rest and relaxation. The cottage was furnished to a very high standard. The local shop was close by and there was loads to do. It was good value for money and there were quality furnishings in the cottage.

This was one of the nicest holidays I've ever had. Lovely hosts and a beautiful location, the cottage could not have been better. All in all I would recommend this location for anyone looking for peace and quiet, superb scenery, and the wild flower garden is something else, which in the peak must be a riot of colour, plus wildlife galore. The holiday was a joy and I will be returning.

The owners were brilliant, really friendly and helpful. The cottage itself was really cosy with the log burning fire an absolute dream. There was nothing to complain about whatsoever and we shall be returning in the summer.

I cannot recommend this cottage enough to anyone. We left yesterday and I already want to book to go back. Extremely well designed and maintained on the inside, set in a wonderful location in the forest next to many walks and places to visit by car.
Mrs Pickard
December 2014
We loved the location, there was plenty to do whatever the weather, something for every taste whether it be outdoor pursuits, sightseeing or shopping. The cottage is furnished and equipped to the very highest standard, in particular the bed and sofa are extremely comfortable, the power shower is excellent and we loved the log fire, a real treat.

It is hard to describe the overall enjoyment of my stay but it greatly exceeded all expectations. Starting from the initial contact with the owners through to the solitude and ambiance of the location.

Warm welcome from owners - property was lovely, clean and warm when we arrived. Also loved the fresh bread and eggs left for us by the owners. Loved the wood burning stove and the beds were very comfortable. It was a very relaxing place to stay and had everything we needed.
Mrs Chaplin

The property was set in a lovely location. The cottage was excellent, so clean, the beds were comfortable and all the equipment was good quality. We arrived to a lovely welcome from the owners. We will recommend this to all our friends, and will return again next year.
Mrs Winspear

Bailey Point Cottage is superb in every way - located well into the country away from it all, just what we wanted for a week of relaxation. The equipment in the Cottage is top notch and there was plenty of it - we could not fault it in any way and my sister with whom I shared the holiday was impressed with the quality of everything. The owners were lovely too - we cannot recommend this Cottage highly enough - long may it continue.
Mrs Chase

Location - away from it all in the forest. Walks directly from the cottage. The cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed.
October 2016
Bailey Cottage is tucked away in the middle of the forest, lots of stunning walks and wildlife on your doorstep. The owners have put a lot of thought into the accommodation, the bed is very comfortable. Each room is equipped for your every need. The owners make you very welcome and are on hand if you need them. They have horses, ducks, a cat and a bouncy dog who all add to the enjoyment. We felt at home straight away and staying in on a dark night with the wood burner going and a glass of wine was a perfect way to relax. If your into bird watching we managed to see, 18 Goldfinches, Robins, Long Tailed Tits, Great Tits, Blue Tits, Green and Spotted Woodpecker, Nut Hatch, Jay and Buzzards.. We also where very privileged to see a stunning fox at the Wigpool close by. We will go back and feel that any other places we stay now will have a lot to live up to.

What a drive to the cottage after you left the main road as you delved deeper and deeper into the forest. Right away I could feel myself starting to relax. We were greeted at the cottage by the owner who gave us a quick tour and then left us to chill out and relax. The cottage is beautifully laid out and very clean and so so quiet. Sitting in the garden was fantastic. Night time too was equally super where you were surrounded in complete darkness due to no 'light pollution'. This was getting better and better in fact the sky was so clear that during the night the meteor showers we were told about were awesome although I did only see two. Would I recommend this place for a holiday? A big yes jumps out. The instructions and directions given to the cottage were spot on. Now a word of caution but this in no way has to do with the cottage. It is advisable to have a proper AA / RAC road map or, like us, you'll have fun with the sat nav. Work out where you are going first and if you disagree with the sat nav trust your instincts. It took us two days to work out the the parallel road was better than the directions the sat nav were using. This is by far and away the best holiday cottage we have stayed in and we would hurry back.

This cottage is ideally located for exploring various counties and places around the Cotswolds. The owner Tanya is a lovely lady and greets you upon arrival with a freshly home baked loaf and 6 duck eggs. The cottage is furnished to a very high standard and is well equipped. Great surroundings for a walk. No question we are returning in 2016 it was that impressive. A great shower. If you are a family there is adequate seating outside with a swingball. A lovely colourful garden
May 2016
The owners were friendly and welcoming.The property, which was set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, had an extremely comfortable bed and excellent shower and kitchen facilities.

We have just spent 2 weeks at Bailey Point Cottage and feel like we found paradise. The cottage is beautifully decorated and furnished to a very high standard. The owners Tanya and Duncan were there to meet us and help with our luggage and gave us a very friendly welcome, there was a loaf of homemade bread and 6 eggs left in the cottage for us which we much appreciated. Their friendliness continued throughout our stay, delivering logs for the log burner stove and also bringing a bottle of wine and some chocolate cake for my husbands birthday. Within their grounds they have 2 horses, some sheep,ducks and a very enthusiastic dog called Huxley, there is also deer and wild boar within the forest. The surrounding grounds are so beautiful and peaceful, you can walk for miles and just hear birds singing and sheep baaing. It's a truly away from it all holiday but there are lots of things to do within a few miles, the canal cruise at symonds yat was very enjoyable followed by a delicious meal at the Saracen inn. If shopping is your thing then the Ross Label shopping village is a must, lots of choice for men and women plus bedding, China and gifts, again a very nice lunch is available at a reasonable price. The scenery in this area is stunning and we both came away feeling really rested and relaxed. We are definitely going back to Bailey Point Cottage next year.
November 2014
It is hard to describe the overall enjoyment and relaxation that I gained from the ambiance generated from both the accommodation and location. Starting with the warm welcome I received from Duncan and the welcome pack of bread, eggs and beer and lit log-burner by Tanya, through to the tranquility of the setting and abundance of wildlife. If you are looking for a very clean, modern, high quality yet secluded base, either to just relax at or as a starting point for day trips, I cannot recommend this high enough. Try the Crooked End Farm shop too, it does fantastic coffee and a good range of local of home grown organic meat and veg
October 2014
What a fantastic find, Bailey Point is faultless, comfy and so clean. Absolutely everything you need plus so many extra lovely touches, even fresh eggs, homemade bread and a bottle of wine to welcome us! Great location for exploring. We would highly recommend and will be returning in fact we might not leave ;)

We've just returned from a week at Bailey Point Cottage, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was faultless, very clean and well maintained, some really lovely touches too. We would definitely recommend this as a place to stay if you're planning to visit the Forest of Dean.
September 2014
We have just spent a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage and can highly recommend this one - the facilities are perfect - all high quality - clearly no expense spared with all the equipment - everything was clean and very welcoming as were the owners. The surroundings are glorious. If you want an away from it all holiday I can recommend booking Bailey Point Cottage. We would like to have taken the cottage home with us!!!!

We particularly liked the setting of Bailey Point Cottage, in a beautiful, natural wild garden and being woken by the sound of birds in the morning. Getting away from the hustle and bustle and leaving behind all the daily routine of life.
