Thank you - I enjoyed having you to stay and to serving dinner - it is always nice to cook for appreciative guests! Jelly was delighted to meet Oscar and especially with the free walk! Do bring Oscar back again soon.

Venue: Fantastic breakfasts with loads of home cooked food using local ingredients; a bunch of quirky fun pets; a very helpful host and a really nice, well stocked room (with quilted toilet paper so thick it could be used to make a nice summer jacket). Really can't ask for more for the price.

Location: Perfect for a short drive to Ross-on-Wye, Simons Yat and other great locations dotted around the Forest of Dean. Be sure to ask Caroline for advice on what to see based on the time of your stay, and for places to eat at. Surprisingly, Ross-on-Wye has a couple of cracking Ghurka restaurants (the one in town is the better of the two).

We were instantly made to feel at home here. Caroline wasn't here for the first night, but she'd ensured we were really well looked after and we wanted for nothing. Our room was splendid, with everything we needed and lots more, from a completely want-for-nothing bathroom, to plenty of ideas for places to visit and things to do. Breakfast was superb, too, with plenty of variety, and as much as possible sourced locally. We weren't very lucky with the weather, but on our first night we were able to sit in the beautiful garden and read.

We wanted a long weekend to relax and walk our two lively spaniels. Caroline provided the perfect place to stay. Sensible dog rules ensure that all guests are happy. jelly Bean, the resident terrier is delightfully friendly to humans and dogs alike and even went for an evening walk with our two! The rooms are spacious and well stocked with comforts, the food at breakfast was exactly right and the Saturday dinner cooked and served to perfection. Maps and ideas of where to go and what to do abound, and on returning to the house the lovely lounge is made available-in our case to watch the Wimbledon finals. We loved the area which was new to us and plan to return before too long. Lea House will be our base.

Thanks a lot. It was fun to share the excitement of Wimbledon finals with you and Jelly Bean enjoyed the doggy company too. Good job we have a good hose for when they all came back caked in mud!
I shall look forward to seeing you again

I was working at a nearby venue until late. Caroline was very accommodating and very professional and personable.

The house has a lovely character, yet doesn't feel 'creaky'. The room was comfortable, very clean and the bathroom was bigger than my own.

If I ever have to stay nearby, or even further out within a reasonable distance, I would gladly stay here again.

Room Tip: The full English breakfast is fantastic. Made with local sausages. Treat yourself

This was a perfect place to stay. The rooms are of a good size, ours had a large kingsized bed which was extremely comfortable, also a well stocked hospitality tray and toiletries in the bathroom. Our friends room was equally as good.
Breakfast is served around a large dining table where you can chat with other guests I find this much better than individual tables as it creates a friendly atmosphere. The breakasts are cooked to perfection, even for awkward people like me!!! The orange juice is freshly squeezed and there is a good varied choice of quality cooked breakfast as well as a large selection of cereals and the most perfect homemade bread. Caroline is the perfect hostess with masses of local knowledge. Thank you Caroline for telling us about Hellens, we would never have discovered it ourselves it was the highlight of our weekend.[as well as Lea House of course] We hope to stay in this lovely B&B again soon to see some more of this beautiful part of the country. Michael and Christine
