Spent 4 nights in the Monmouth Room with 2 Boxer dogs. Room compact with twin beds but comfortable with tea & coffee making facilities (+ hot choc & biscs). Hosts wish to please and hands on with breakfast and info. Many laminated guides personally researched for all abilities and durations. Great dog-friendly facilities on site and with forest walk starting... More

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at The Rock. We were made very welcome by Chris & Linda, who went out of their way to make our stay so enjoyable. The studio room was spotless, comfortable and very roomy. We woke up to wonderful views and a superb breakfast. The Forest of Dean walks were from the... More

This was our second stay at The Rock with our 3 cocker spaniels. The room was excellent, as we knew it would be, and having the dogs with us was not a problem. The garden was available to let the dogs run in, but we tended to walk them across through the forest. There are some great walks all around... More

3 of my family stayed for a weekend in March. My wife says this B&B sets a new benchmark for B&Bs, better than a hotel. We had a great weekend, the breakfasts are superb. Wholeheartedly recommended. We had a birdwatching weekend, for which the Forest of Dean is renowned and the location of the B&B is excellent - watch Peregrines... More

This is the second time that we've stayed at The Rock; the first time with our dog and the second time with our young baby. The rooms are well-decorated, spotless and cosy. This time we stayed in one of the spacious studio rooms which had a stunning view of the garden and beyond. Breakfast was tasty and well cooked, and... More

We stayed here for a weekend break and really enjoyed it. It was peaceful and the views and space were lovely. The room was done out very well and there was a nice amount of space to relax. We stayed in a Valley View room which was a bit more expensive but worth it for the lovely views and extra... More

Enjoyed a couple of nights here although was a little disappointed with a couple of things. The room was a little small for 2 people and a dog. The bathroom was pretty pokey too. I was also under the impression that the room had 25 mile views of symonds yat (I may have read this wrong on the website), the... More

Thanks for your feedback, We'll look again at our website to see if we can improve room descriptions' but we try to ensure we cover that the Forest View rooms are at the front of the property with views of the forest, and the Valley View rooms are at the back of the property' off the garden' with Valley Views....

We only stayed overnight but it was just what you need after a day walking in the forest. Cosy, comfortable and nothing more you could desire from a B&B. I had a veggie breakfast which was certainly more than enough including Lindy's home made sausage which made a great start to the day. Chris & Lindy certainly care for their... More

When we arrived we were warmly welcomed and immediately felt relaxed. We stayed in the end room with a balcony looking out over a stunning 30km view, far better than we would have imagined, and a view you could enjoy all day. The room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable and had all we needed even a including fridge. There... More
