The reviews for this little bed & breakfast were so good that I have to say I felt a little let down. I don't want to pour cold water on all the amazing reviews, maybe it was not just for me. I think it might be that its important to remember that its a bed and breakfast and not a... More

Dear Lynne We are sorry that you felt a little disappointed with your stay. From reading your review, it appears that you were expecting The Forest to be a hotel with reception, bar and restaurant rather than a family run B&B. This may be because you booked through an online booking agency which has limited information although we always make... More

Excellent find for my new granddaughter and her parents not far from where we are building our new home. Friendly caring owners who have gone that extra mile to make you feel welcome in the outstanding border countryside of the Kerry Vale.

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at our B&B and were able to visit your parents up the lane who have taken on a major building project. I am sure we will get to know them quite well in the coming months as work progresses. More

We were looking to stay overnight somewhere near Newtown as we were going to see John Etheridge who was playing at LaTerrazza. The Forest looked really nice on the website and we fancied a bit of a treat! We weren't disappointed. The Forest is a lovely place. Our room was beautiful, the breakfast was really nice and the owner was... More

We stumbled upon The Forest B&B on booking.com looking for a two-night stay in the area. The website describes the situation, the historic building with its large bedrooms, and the garden complete with tennis court. But it cannot convey the atmosphere of this immaculate place, nor adequately describe the care which has clearly been taken over every detail. Ours was... More

We stayed in the largest of the B&B rooms with a four poster bed. There was also the possibility of having another bed made up in the room. Plenty of space, a sofa, TV and tea and coffee facilities. Everything was very clean and decorated to a high standard with quality materials. The bed was so comfortable that we didn't... More

The rooms are beautiful with elegant furniture and trimmings The hosts are welcoming and helpful and a great bonus is that they offer the possibility of using their fridge, microwave, cuttlery and a small kitchen so that one can buy the makings of a simple meal and enjoy a quiet dinner there. It is beautifully located so that one may... More

Stayed here with my family in one of the self catering cottages for week and found it to be excellent.

We have stayed here on three occasions & all were exceptional. Firstly the location is just stunning, set down a country line with passing places although not busy, we only had to reverse once so no problem.

The house is an old manor, with a suit of armour in the entrance hall. The front door is about 2" thick, and it's probably the best B&B in which we've ever stayed. proprietors were really friendly and helpful, and allowed us to change our room to a 'Super King Size' bed - about the same as an Australian King...
