I so enjoyed our stay at Forest Hall Guest House. The gardens were stunning and the rooms were spacious and clean. It was a very cold weekend in PE and the rooms were kitted out with electric blankets, a heater, umbrella and hot water bottles! We made use of it all haha. I would love to go back during some good weather to enjoy the pool, gardens and pattio area just outside your door step.

It was most special to visit this exquisite establishment set in extensive gardens. We savoured every moment, from walking in the garden, enjoying breakfast, reading and sleeping soundly in the quiet bedroom. The facilities, décor, furniture, equipment and buildings were all charming. We were served with smiles, professionalism and dedication. Thank you to David and the team. Ideal for a most special stay.

Forest Hall Guest House is a beautiful guest house in a wonderful setting and a very convenient location. The staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. The room was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. There was nothing that I needed that wasn't already provided! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Forest Hall to anyone else and would certainly return should the need arise..
