    About this property

    Wonderfully restored by its owners, Fairview Cottage offers guests a pleasant and peaceful base from which to explore this scenic part of the country. Based in Gloucestershire, this cottage sits in the village of Blakeney.

    Much care has been taken with the furnishings, mixing the antique and the modern, to create a charming atmosphere ensuring you have all the comforts you need during your stay. There’s even a four poster bed in the master bedroom! You’ll find a sizeable back garden to relax in after a busy day or you may just be transported away by that amazing view across the River Severn from the terrace at the front.

    Accommodation within the property is sufficient enough to sleep six in three bedrooms; on the upper ground floor, there is one double bed, while the other bedroom hosts one four poster double and the final bedroom a twin bed arrangement. One Family bathroom can be found on the upper ground floor with basin and WC, shower room with shower, basin and WC. The kitchen has a breakfast table, while in the sitting room you can relax in front of the wood burning stove.

    Blakeney itself lies on the edge of the Forest of Dean, and was once the site of a Roman Villa dating back to 75AD. Equidistant to Gloucester and Monmouth, the village boasts many 16th and 17th century buildings, with a charming 16th century coaching inn. Local amenities include a fish and chip shop, village store and post office, as well as numerous walks and cycle routes.

    There is plenty to see and do at this magnificent location in Gloucestershire, with Fairview cottage only being one of the highlights.

    Mrs Brinkman ‐ 1 Aug 2019
    "We were met by Adrian, who was very friendly and left us a hamper and a fresh cucumber from his own garden, so nice! ..."
    Mrs Williams ‐ 1 Apr 2019
    " In a beautiful position and with great views, we could see across the river and the fields in front were being ploughed, which was great for the kids to watch. The garden is spacious and really lovely to sit and play in. There's a swing and space to play and an outside seating area. The kitchen was extremely well equipped with a big fridge and freezer, oven and hob, better than most cottages, the lounge was very comfortable, cottage itself pretty spacious, and we loved all the nice little touches and decor around the cottage. I'd have booked to visit this again and again as the area, including the Forest of Deam, it great for a holiday, was it not for one issue only, and that was the mattresses. The Four poster bed was lovely to look at, but if anyone so much as moved an inch it creaked loudly, and the mattress was very soft and saggy, making for a bad night's sleep. The second night I moved to one of the single beds which was slightly better, but my hip was still bad next day as I'm not used to such soft mattresses. The third night (feeling like Goldilocks) I moved to the ground floor bedroom, which probably had the best one, although still not hugely comfortable. My husband was also stuck on the four poster getting a worse back each night until unfortunately we decided to come home a bit early in order to get a good night's sleep - was bliss getting home to our Ikea mattress! So yes honestly this is a beautiful cottage and if you're younger than us or are used to soft mattresses it's great, but I really think it would be great if they were updated. "

    "Lovely welcome hamper on arrival. Possibly the best equipped and most homely holiday rental we have ever stayed at...everything was thought of, provided and immaculate. Fascinating history to the cottage which really brought it to life and made our stay so much more personal. We didn't want to leave the cottage, the log burner or the escape from reality we needed! Will certainly recommend to all friends and family."

    "This cottage was the perfect base for a wonderful weekend spent walking, eating and drinking - plus looking out of the windows at the magnificent, ever-changing view of the Severn. We hope to return. Thank you for the very generous welcome hamper. We did not stay long enough here to finish it!"

    "I think your cottage was one of the best we have ever stayed in and we look forward to returning in the not too distant future."
