A home away from home. Lovely location and a wonderful house.
Loved the gardens and house had everything needed for a great family break.
We met up with friends as there was lots of space whatever the weather.

“Great space for a large group”
Reviewed June 15, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Our family party consisted of six adults and three young children and we had a wonderful long weekend in this great house.
Yes, it's a little tired in places but it didn't detract from the overall charm and was clean and very comfortable. It had plenty of all the things you need and we didn't want for anything.
The showers need some attention, the one in the en suite was un useable, either freezing cold or scalding hot and barely enough water coming out of it in the first place. The shower in the family bathroom was better but still needs attention in n my opinion.
The outside space is charming, the garden beautiful and the village setting peaceful with beautiful views. The games room with the table tennis table is great fun!
I would definitely return.

Dear Julie,
I'm delighted you had an enjoyable stay. It is helpful to have your feedback on the showers as we had thought that the problems had been rectified by our plumber. The mains pressure is rather low - an issue we have raised on many occasions with Severn water, with little constructive response. This imposes some limits on the water flow. However, from what you're saying the showers seem to need some further attention and we will be asking our plumber to try to resolve these issues asap.

Kind regards,

Dan

“Lovely house for a relaxing weekend in the Forest”
Reviewed November 29, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed in the Whitehouse as a group of 10 adults and 2 young children (< 6 months old) in November and we had a wonderful time. The house is very spacious with plenty of room for a large group and well situated to access the Forest of Dean for walks and other activities. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back - Dan was very attentive and always responded to email enquiries promptly. The house is a little dated in decor (as you can see in the photos), but that doesn't detract from what is a cosy and spacious house in a lovely setting.

“Refreshing”
Reviewed May 17, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Such a wonderful time away with friends. 5 couples and 2 toddlers meet up for a group 30th birthday celebration and what a time it was. Stunning location with beautiful walks on our doorstep. So much space to spread out and no concern about suitability for our little ones. Everything you could need in the kitchen and the table tennis table brought hours of fun(as well as our attempts at the 80/90s classics on the piano!). Definitely recommend this property!
