5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We absolutely loved this cottage and had a wonderfully relaxing time in the midst of some of the most amazing countryside England has to offer. The conversion is very high spec and had a hotel-like quality to it whilst still retaining a great deal of charm and character. Everything has been thought of and all the facilities that you would expect to have at home are present making catering for a young family very easy, which removes many of the difficulties that can often be experienced with self catering. For us, the complete lack of mobile phone/ internet access was a pure joy. In a society that wants you to be available twenty-four hours a day I can think of no better way to switch off, especially when my husband is constantly in demand with work. I will definitely be booking again and we have also taken some ideas from the finish of the cottage to incorporate into our own self-build project! Without doubt one of the best UK holidays I have ever had - highly recommended. more

We had a wonderful stay at The Foundry near Lydney. When we arrived after a 5 hour car journey, we were welcomed to find a sponge cake, and some milk, plus sachets of tea, coffee. The property is absolutely immaculate and beautifully done out. Everything is at hand, a lovely kitchen and utility room, downstairs toilet. Large TV in lounge with comfortable sofas. Bedrooms are very large and the master having an ensuite shower room, with lovely walk in shower. Outside the property is a patio area with picnic bench for those warmer days. Very close to the cottage is the post office, nice to go and get your morning paper etc. You are handy for all the local attractions, and plenty to do if you like to walk and cycle. Nice pubs in the area if you don't fancy cooking your evening meal. All in all we had a fantastic stay and would certainly recommend it. more
