Delightful cottage set in the pretty village of Clearwell, close to excellent local pubs & restaurants.
Foxglove Cottage is in a beautifully quiet village. It is well resourced inside and I think everything you might need has been thought of. Clean throughout, well designed with comfy beds and linen. There is a comprehensive guidebook should you have any queries.
Everywhere was very clean, nicely decorated, and comfortable beds. A lovely touch when we arrived was the Christmas decorations were up.
The owners have thought of everything, from offering different types of tea and coffee to the softest of soft towels and toiletries. A beautiful cottage in a lovely village.
Four of us, a toddler and a dog spent a week here in October and loved it. Such a gorgeous, cosy, cottage. Tastefully decorated with lovely added extras. It was close proximity to the stunning Forest of Dean as well as other great attractions for kids. It was lovely to come back to a log fire and a spacious kitchen to cook dinner in every evening.
Perfect cottage in perfect place
What a gorgeous place. On the outside it looks tiny but inside it’s roomy and cosy and has everything you need for a great stay. The host provided cookies and coffee and teas, and there was shampoo, etc. Lots of information was provided as well about the region. The beds were comfy, the towels were good quality and all you need in the kitchen for a nice meal was there. Such lovely taste too. And it feels like someone’s second home and not just a holiday cottage. We all just loved this place.
Lovely cottage in a location full of things to do
Comfortable cottage. Everything we needed. Enjoyed our stay. Thanks Amanda.
Clearwell is great for exploring the Forest and is the most peaceful of villages. Amanda has thought of just about everything you need and the cottage is really homely and comfortable. Great garden area and friendly neighbours too. Lovely!
Foxglove cottage is perfect! Comfortable and stylish inside with everything you need. Our daughters loved the toys and games and were sad to say goodbye to the teddies when we left! Outside is a very pretty courtyard garden with a handy shed in which we stored our bikes. Clearwell was a great location for us and we had a fantastic time canoeing on the Wye and cycling in the forest. We hope to return soon.
Our second stay at Foxglove Cottage and it is as perfect as ever. The location is superb, with fantastic forest walks right on the doorstep. Fabulous amenities, it is a real home from home and super comfortable. The garden is fabulous to relax in and the beds are super comfy. Clean and doggies are allowed too which is perfect! We are already looking forward to coming back next year 🙂
The cottage is very spacious and comfortable. Decent size kitchen table for a cottage too. You can park easily in front of the cottage. Very central for Wye Valley actvities. Highly recommended. Michael
What a beautiful cottage! So many lovely features and what a fabulous little garden. Our children loved the play shed and car collection, and the local park was 30 seconds down the road! We really appreciated Amanda’s love for the environment too; clear recycling instructions and toiletries in reusable dispensers 🙂 We felt very welcome and the neighbours were friendly too. Thank you!

Beautiful cottage exactly as it looks. We were working locally and found the place much better than we expected. They really have gone the extra mile to make it home away from home. 5 stars
A beautiful cottage that is very well kitted out with everything you might need. Check in and check out were hassle free. Comfortable beds, cosy sitting room and beautiful furnishings. Thank you for a lovely stay!
A lovely and very well equipped home for family stays. Beautiful countryside at your doorstep. Games, books, DVDs, toys and s smart TV. Well equipped kitchen with quite a few staples provided. Wide selection of maps and routes provided for those who like to walk. The cottage itself is very comfortable, stylishly appointed, with many thoughtful touches and everything in great condition. Clearwell village is charming and pretty, with beautiful hills in the backdrop. A church or two, a castle and 3 pubs. Just perfect.

A great cottage, I would highly recommend
The property was immaculate & cosy. Lots of information and lots of little extras- homemade cookies & even dog treats
Amanda’s charming cottage in the picturesque village of Clearwell doesn’t disappoint! It’s cozy rooms are appointed with the perfect amenities including fully stocked bathroom, games, fire wood, CDs, DVDs and even homemade cookies in the kitchen. It’s felt like staying with family. Highly recommend this AirBNB and exploring the beautiful English countryside that surrounds it!
Foxglove cottage is a perfect little place to stay. It’s a cosy, well furbished cottage in a great location. The communication with Amanda is prompt and all the necessary information was provided. The village is really nice with loads a great pub nearby, loads of nearby attractions and friendly locals to add to a great feel to your stay. I’d highly recommend staying here. Thanks Amanda for a perfect place for our family stay – all three generations loved it!
Great cottage in a peaceful location. Perfect for exploring the Wye Valley & Forest of Dean. Very comfortable and clean; a really beautiful ‘home’ with so many lovely touches. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, would definitely recommend and hope to return to see the forest in the different seasons and to make use of the outdoor space.Treby January 2019
Stunning walks, excellent communication, wonderful ‘thought of everything’ touches and possibly the most perfect Airbnb I’ve been lucky enough to stay in. We were a family party of six adults celebrating a late festive gathering and it exceeded all our expectations. The garden looks fabulous for summer get-togethers. Love to test this out!Cindy January 2019
We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cottage. All the Christmas decorations, Fairy lights and attention to detail made our stay even more special. Kitchen was so nice for cooking and socializing too. This is a perfect place for a family or friends to share. Everything you need and more is available to make your stay comfortable and memorable. Definitely a must if you are looking for accommodation in Clearwell or surrounds.
We loved Foxglove Cottage! It is superbly situated, and Amanda has provided lots of great info about the history and geography of the local area. Check-in and -out is straightforward, and the house itself is clean and very comfortable. (We had six people staying.) Highly recommended by our whole family!
Fab stay ! Super accommodation and local amenities all within walking distances. Would whole heartedly recommend – we will be returning!
Had a brilliant stay in Clearwell, gorgeous cottage and stunning location. Would absolutely recommend and will stay again if returning to the area. We all loved it!
A lovely terraced cottage in beautiful surrounds. Very spacious, clean, tidy and tastefully decorated making for a very comfortable stay. Recommendations for local pubs were spot on, all within a mile with good food. The Ostrich is highly recommended. Nestled on the western side of the Forest of Dean you are well placed to explore the Dean or the Wye valley with reasonable drive times. A really enjoyable stay.
Debbie August 2018
A beautiful cottage in a lovely village. Everything you could possibly want, was provided. I cannot rate this cottage highly enough.
Susan August 2018
Amanda’s cottage is beautifully decorated with everything you need, great location and great restaurants a short walk or drive. Recommend The Butchers Arms. Symonds Yat is well worth a visit also hiring bikes in the forest! Would highly recommend and would love to stay again
Catherine August 2018
A fantastic stay in a beautiful cottage. We had a wonderful time, the cottage was clean, comfortable and the amenities were fantastic! We loved the little activity touches such as rock painting. A great central location for what the Forest has to offer. We will certainly be back and are looking forward to it already 🙂
Chris July 2018
A very stylish and comfortable house. Much bigger than it looks from the photos, really spacious and good for relaxing. And the courtyard garden is very beautiful. Highly recommended.
Alex July 2018
Stunning little cottage with everything you could need! If you’re at the castle for a wedding, as we were then you can’t do much better.
Benjamin July 2018
We used Amanda’s cottage for a wedding at Clearwell Castle & it couldn’t have been more convenient. A short walk to the castle. Many a pub to visit too. The cottage itself was welcoming and homely & thank you again to Amanda for allowing the family dog to join us on our trip.
David July 2018
We came for a wedding at Clearwell Castle and Foxglove Cottage is superbly located for this. Plus we stayed an extra couple of days to venture into the Forest of Dean. Really enjoyable stay, very clean and spacious for 5 of us. We especially loved the courtyard garden, a really chilling space to enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the day.
Penny May 2018
Foxglove Cottage was outstanding. Beautifully furnished and exceptionally clean. A fantastic courtyard garden and the most comfy beds ever! We had a fabulous few days kayaking on the Wye, walking in the forests and loving the views. Great location and great cottage. Thank you!
Greg May 2018
A perfect location to explore the Forest of Dean area.
Rachel May 2018
Beautiful cottage in a stunning location. The decor was lovely and everything was spotlessly clean. Just a short walk to some very cure local pubs, and a short distance to attractions like Puzzlewood and Clearwell Caves.
Julia April 2018
Beautiful cottage. Stylish and comfortable. Great location for exploring the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley. Highly recommended.
Ben April 2018
Lovely house. Area is stunning. Never been to the Wye Valley before but there was so much for us to do and then return to the house for a restful evening and good nights sleep.
Delyth April 2018
This is a fantastic relaxing cottage all round..very thoughtfully done to accommodate all ages, spacious enough for 6, all the basics included e.g towels , toiletries, tea coffe..and a welcome back of biscuits!!. Exceptionally pretty ..we loved loved loved it!
Laura March 2018
Foxglove Cottage was in the perfect location for all we wanted to do in the Forest of Dean and we wished we stayed for longer! We visited Clearwell Caves and Perry grove Railway, just a few miles away both in one day when the weather was a mixture of rain and sun. We spent a full day at Puzzlewood Forest and this was a really magical experience, well worth the entry fee with so much to do and see and we thoroughly recommend it. The cottage itself has everything you could possibly need, in an ideal peaceful location and was incredibly comfortable and warm throughout. With a play area and football pitch minutes from the door, it was ideal for our children aged 10 and 4. Amanda’s communication was excellent and she responded quickly to messages. We’ve had a really enjoyable break and hope at some point to return! Thank you Amanda
We all loved staying here ; perfect cottage to join family and great introduction to Wye valley for all of us . Comfortable beds , well equipped cottage in lovely village. Just what needed for relaxing holiday with thoughtful touches – dvds , walking books , toasty stove … . Will recommend to our mates . Thank you!
Beautiful cottage! My wife, baby son and dog stayed for 5 days and everything was perfect. Gorgeous setting, easily accessible to local amenities and very much a home from home. We would love to stay again in the future. Thanks Amanda!
Foxglove cottage was a wonderful location for our long weekend away. The facilities are top notch and the house is beautifully presented. The house was clean on arrival and contained everything that we needed for our stay.
Our family of 4 had a great stay of nearly a week. Toasty warm even in cold January weather and we loved the cozy comfort of the cottage. We also appreciated thoughtful amenities like kindling and firestarters for the wood stove, toys and games for kids, and lots of DVDs (even if we never got round to watching them). There’s lots to do in the area and we hope to come back again.
The house is really amazing, well located for FOD amenities and generally a really lovely place to be. We ended up staying in more as we liked the house so much. The house has all the amenities one would expect and there is a really good childrens play area just behind the house. Overall I really could fault it even if I was being petty.
Really well equipped cottage perfect for our girls-get-together weekend. Everything spic and span when we arrived and beautifully furnished with lots of lovely finishing touches. Managed to get the wood burner up and running – very cosy! Thanks so much Amanda!
What can I say…thank you for a lovely stay! The cottage was absolutely beautiful and we loved everything about it. It was spotlessly clean, equipped with everything we could have wanted and more and we would love to return again in the future. Have already recommended the cottage to friends and family. Thank you so much for having us!
Excellent Holiday Cottage – centrally located for all the activities we had planned (Clearwell Caves, Puzzlewood & Perrygrove Railway). The cottage is spacious & beautifully maintained to a high standard with everything you need (& quite a bit more) for a lovely holiday. The inclusion of a King-Size bed in the main bedroom is brilliant as often only a double bed is offered. Possibly the best holiday accommodation I’ve ever stayed in & far from the most expensive!
This is a gorgeous little cottage and the owner has a great attention to detail. The location is fantastic, we attended a wedding at clearwell castle (which is a 5 minute walk) and there is lots to do in the local area. Thoroughly recommend.
What a gorgeous cottage this is. We stayed here for a wedding at Clearwell Castle. Perfect location and easy to walk to the castle. The cottage is clean and has everything you’d need. We would definitely stay again.
Absolutely loved Foxglove Cottage! The cottage is spacious and very comfortably furnished. The garden is a delightful sun-trap and perfect for a barbeque. The location is great for numerous local attractions – we managed to keep 2 teenage boys occupied all week! Highly recommended.
We had a lovely weekend in Foxglove Cottage. The location is fantastic – it’s in a pretty village with several nice pubs and places to eat within walking distance, and our two girls loved the playground that’s just round the corner. There’s tons to do and see only a short drive away – we hired bikes in the Forest of Dean, visited Symonds Yat and walked round the magical Puzzlewood and there’s lots more that we’d like to do on a future trip. The cottage itself is cosy and beautifully decorated with a very well equipped kitchen and a lovely courtyard garden. We hope to visit again!
I couldn’t recommend higher! Location was wonderful – 5 min walk to Clearwell Castle and very close to the caves. The house was superbly decorated and incredibly clean and beds and sofa’s ery comfortable. It felt cosy and relaxing with plenty of creature comforts. I’m stealing some decor tips from our stay!! The place would be perfect for dog owners with a secure garden (we didn’t bring our pup, but wouldn’t hesitate in bringing her should we stay again) We had a 1 1/2-year-old with us and I would say the place is great for a toddler. Plenty of toys for him, baby gates set up, crib in the master room and a high chair in the kitchen. Amanda thought of everything – there was tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits left for us, plenty of towels, bubble bath, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, cotton pads, ear buds which was great. Lovely soap in the bathroom too – I’ll be buying some myself. One thing that many cottages don’t do, is leave appropriate (un-opened) items previous guests left behind – but it was great to see that there was some condiments, sparkling water, tonic water and other bits – which was handy. Amanda was incredibly friendly and a pleasure to deal with and the place was real value for money. I would certainly stay again – perfection! Thank you x
A gorgeous cottage and a brilliant base for exploring The Forest of Dean. The place is homely and very comfortable with all the amenities you’d hope for. We particularly liked the patio area at the back for a bit of late afternoon sun. The quietness of the cottage and the village in general is matched by the peaceful, tasteful decor and very comfortable beds. This is a place to come to and just RELAX. The village of Clearwell places you right in the heart of some of the most beautiful unspoilt countryside and everything is nearby, including Symons Yat, cycling and walks, lovely pubs and restaurants. Summing up, anyone looking for a fantastic place to stay and potter about and/or explore this magically corner of the world should really consider Amanda’s cottage. It’s everything you could possibly hope for and maybe a bit more…
I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough! A few times over the weekend my sisters and I exclaimed “I want to live here forever”.
Beautiful cottage which exceeds the description on the website. Highly recommended.
Lovely, well equipped cottage. Great for walking from the door.
We found the accommodation to be very clean and tastefully decorated, also each room was well equipped. We had lovely weather and were able to enjoy the attractive and comfortable outside space, which really added to the enjoyment of our stay. Would recommend to people wanting to stay in this area, close to the forest, the caves and steam railway.
Me & my family had a fantastic break at Foxglove Cottage. Amanda had thought of everything even toys for my 2 girls which they thoroughly enjoyed playing with! The cottage was beautifully clean & the garden was a pure joy my mum loved all of he different plants in quirky tubs & pots! We would definitely go back as 2 nights was not long enough.
This place is fantastic. It was so clean and the furnishings were beautiful. We had everything we needed, and Amanda even left a bone for our dog. Clearwell is a lovely little area, we went to the caves in the day and had a fab dinner at the Butchers Arms down the road. We also went to the diving and activity center nearby to do some flyboarding. We can’t recommend this place enough.
Great short stay in foxglove cottage. Everything we needed in the cottage, nice and clean and plenty of space. Lots to do in the area.
This is a beautiful home from home! Really comfy beds, quality sheets and lots of lovely touches – we were really impressed by the attention to detail and the added extras that had been provided. The area is beautiful too – lots of maps and walk suggestions and leaflets for the surrounding area have been provided in the cottage. We enjoyed trips to Puzzlewood, Forest of Dean Steam Railway, Tintern Abbey and Symonds Yat – all were great days out and highly recommended. We ate at The Butchers Arms in the village and The Miners at Sling (walkable but very uphill!) both of which were lovely, especially the latter. If you are considering Foxglove Cottage for a holiday, DO IT! It’s a great location and a warm, comfortable and beautiful home to stay in.
