lovely accommodation perfect setting and so dog frindly. Amazing owners even left my wife a card and bottle wine for her 50th made her experience perfect

Currently here. Beautiful cottage, bigger than expected. Beautiful views out the patio doors, across fields. On a busy road but we are used to that. Lovely garden for dogs ( tiny dogs may be able to get out) but our westie and cockerpoo can't. Nice parking and turning area all included. House has loo roll, washing up liquid, hand soap, nice touches. Fridge is small but enough for us. Clean, dog friendly. Beds comfy all though pillows really are too thin hardly any support ( literally the only thing we could find wrong!!) Absolutely excellent cottage we are loving it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dovetail.. It was perfect for our dogs with excellent, secure fencing. The cottage is situated with beautiful views front and rear and surrounded by a lovely orchard. It provided easy access to where ever we needed to go. Thank you for the wine and biscuits, they were much appreciated. Very helpful owners and with their advice we were able to see the Severn Bore. We would love to visit again.

The barn was stunning views.. The log burner is amazing to have on in the evenings Ann who owns the barn is very lovely and on hand if you need any help Our stay was amazing our two dogs also enjoyed there stay

The cottage was clean, warm and a good base for exploring the area.. The wine and biscuits left was a lovely welcoming gesture. However we found the double bed mattress was very uncomfortable and noisy. The cottage is right next to the A48 which is fairly busy and causing a substantial amount of noise even during the night. We did manage to sleep but someone who is a light sleeper may find this challenging. It also prevented us from keeping the windows open at night even though it was warm.

I wrote a review and said we would soon return.. We did. Dovetail is a great place to stay - really peaceful and restorative. The owners are exceptional and we thank them for all their kindness. We will return very soon.

This is a real home away from home.. A place to relax and enjoy the benefits of the Forest of Dean. Fabulous food available from The Wye Smokery, Cameron’s butchers and Over Farm. The owners of the property are truly Kind & wonderful: they are close at hand and happy to help or just leave you be. We can’t thank them enough for all they did in helping us to get our border terrier further on the road to recovery after back surgery. They will do everything to make your stay perfect for you. We will absolutely return as soon as we can.

Lovely place to stop great for the money.. Loved the little treats when we arrived. Busy road not a problem ideal location to see the Severn bore and to travel around. Only slight problem was getting out of the drive with neighbours parked cars .. there was a blind spot and couldn’t see fast moving traffic. Wonderful area local people so friendly and welcoming

The location over all was good Gloucester quays worth a visit.. The problem with dovetail is the owner needs to spend some money on the property. The bed is in desperate need of a new mattress a new sofa and a larger fridge.

We were not told it was next to a noisy road

Good welcome pack including wine sausage rolls cakes and biscuits .. we felt that there was not enough info on equipment .

This is a nice little cottage , with good facilities well fitted out .. but the noise from the main road is bad it is beside the main a48, very busy road day and night. there for we would not stay there again .
Mrs Green, May 2019

The cottage was spotlessly clean and the wine and goodies left for our arrival were a lovely surprise.. Everything that we needed was in the kitchen and cottage was cosy. We were slightly disappointed that the shower cubicle is a little small for us - it was difficult to move around when using it. The main road was not a problem as that was evident from the information provided but we were a little wary of turning out of the property as your vision is obscured by neighbours' vehicles parked on the kerb. It maybe that we were a little unlucky and that they are not always there! Lovely enclosed garden for our dog which was perfect. Overall we had a lovely stay and would recommend!

Very lovely cottage, bottle of wine with sausage rolls and home made cup cakes and even some chic chip cookies, just perfect.. Neighbour very friendly and helpful. Cottage is on a busy road but nice big gate and fenced off so dog could have a roam and chat with the cows

Owners very friendly and helpful, sausage rolls and cake to greet us on arrival a nice surprise after a longish drive.. Quite close to a busy main road but once inside the cottage we were not aware of any traffic noise.

Dovetail was a lovely place clean and felt safe.. We had home made cup cakes and sausage roll which was great. We had our little dog with us which was nice too.

Even though the weather varied from drizzle and full on rain plus high winds with the occasional hour or two of sunshine Dovetail cottage kept us warm,snug and comfortable.. In addition, on our arrival we found a bottle of wine, sausage rolls and cup cakes, tea, coffee and biscuits awaiting us! The two of us and our dog enjoyed the holiday very much indeed and we have no hesitation at all in thoroughly recommending it.
Mr Clarke

The Cottage was exactly what it said in the packet clean tidy and comfortable, we were welcomed by sausage rolls cup cakes and a bottle of wine, a very nice touch by the owners.. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this cottage to anyone. The only downside if I am being picky is the access off the very busy main road.

We had a really good time at Dovetail it was spotlessly clean and there was a nice welcome for us with wine, sausage rolls and cake.. The cottage was comfortable with thought put into what you might need whilst away from home ie: ironing board iron and hair dryer etc. Views were great including the 2 cows and their calves as neighbours. The owners daughter Rachael was friendly and helpful but did not interfere with our stay. We will try and go back to Dovetail in the next few months ( work permitting )
Mrs Swain

Lovely little cottage next to a field of two beautiful cows with their calves, great views across the countryside from all windows.. Lovely airy open space, perfect for our family of 3, with small outside space to sit in the sunshine. Excellent location for visiting lots of attractions in the Forest of Dean, particularly good for children, also very close to Gloucester. Very well kept cottage, with a couple of very good pubs only a short drive away in Westbury on Severn.

View of the fields and cows is so relaxing.. Have visited Dovetail 5 times and are booked again for later this year and twice for next year. We love the place.

A lovely cottage - welcome pack and bedding towels etc all fantastic.. Had 2 excitable dogs and was happy to see Public Walkway right next door- however was discouraged by owner of next door house to use Public Walkway - was told she would rather we didn’t. Obviously my dogs would have been kept on a lead going through her garden but she asked us not to. This rather spoilt our holiday as was not many other places to walk and run our dogs off the lead.

Dovetail is a gem of a cottage with attention to detail for comfort.. It is well equipped,in a good location for visiting many places around the Forest of Dean and has ample parking and sitting area outside. We had a great week and will be returning.
Miss Manning

The cottage was lovely, clean and well equipped.. Welcome goodies were a very nice touch. Although on a major road we never noticed any traffic noise. Our dogs enjoyed the large safe garden. Only one minor comment, there was no radio/cd player as listed. We would happily stay at Dovetail again.
Mrs Radley

Very good garden for dogs very secure considering it was close to a very busy main road.. Very good welcome pack on arrival.

A lovely cottage, cosy and with everything necessary to have a relaxing holiday.. It is in a good position with easy access to the Forest of Dean, Gloucester, Chepstow, Monmouth and Tewkesbury. There is plenty of outside space for the dogs and a nice view of Walmore Common and the hills in the distance. We had our shopping delivered by Asda which was convenient. The only things missing for me were a full length mirror and a clock. Altogether a very pleasant holiday and we hope to be back

Just wanted to say that Dovetail was lovely, the cottage had been decorated for Christmas, there were mince pies, biscuits and homemade sausage rolls, what a wonderful surprise.. ........... would recommend but just a little comment due to having dogs and awful weather, a washing machine would have been handy..........
Mr Malpass

Lovely cottage , owner very friendly and very clean and tidy.. Was great for our dogs and very safe well enclosed garden. It never bothered us but it's very close to a main road and was a bit noisy
Mr Bailey

The view from the back of the cottage extended uninterrupted for miles with hills, water and grassland.. To the back and side of the garden was a field with two friendly cows. The whole experience was very relaxing .

Cottage is great really comfortable and cosy .. Lovely spacious garden for dogs to run around Lovely welcome pack from owners of home made cakes and sausage rolls. A great base to explore surrounding area would recommend.

You have Minsterworth west of Dovetail when it is to the east and you have Westbury to the east when it is to the west.. Please check your map!
Mrs Fisher, April 2017

Great value for money.. ....wish the pub was a little closer, other then that all good. Take a torch if walking back from pub at night.
Dr Shreeve, October 2016

The directions were wrong.. Minsterworth is to the east and Westbury to the west and Sykes had them the other way round. The property was four doors to the east of the school not to the west. Made it difficult for us to find it. We had a wonderful holiday and loved the property and the location. The countryside was lovely and the proximity to the River Severn. Bus stops were only a few yards away so it was easy to visit Gloucester and Forest of Dean villages. The welcome pack was a nice touch and the owners were very helpful.
Mrs Gough, November 2016

Well situated for the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean.. Ideal for dog; safe and secure garden, and we appreciated having access to the orchard next door as well. Welcomed with home baking, which was lovely. The only snag is the traffic noise, but it didn't bother us because it was autumn and we had the windows shut. But the advert was honest about this, so we were not surprised.
Mrs Gough, October 2016

Lovely views from inside the cottage of the fields beyond with the pet cows and their calves the other side of the fence, could not let my dog out off his lead as there was a large hole underneath the gate which was the entrance to the cottage which led onto one of the busiest roads, no immediate walks from cottage because of this road.. The cottage was comfortable but could not find the radio/cd player. Took our own dvd player for the evenings, only one game in cottage and most of the suggested places of interest did not allow dogs, so had to rely on forest walks. Most pubs did not allow dogs inside and in September it can rain. As we found out after a long walk, lucky there was a large tree with a bench to sit under until it stopped.
