Reviewed May 28, 2013

Visited this guest house for the eighth year running in May 2013. Although it changed hands three years ago Terry and Jane have kept up the high standards and there is a warm welcome, including tea and cake on arrival. Comfortable rooms and a classy English breakfast, or alternatives if required. Set in the beautiful Forest of Dean. Give it a whirl not just in may but anytime of the year

Thank you to Terry & Jane for making us very welcome, our room was very clean and comfy with everything we needed for a special weekend stay, all the little extra's made it extra special. Terry's knowledge of the local area was great and helped us enjoy our stay. Thanks for the excellent breakfast which set us up for the day!

Edale house is central to much of the Forest of Dean's attractions yet retains an atmosphere of peaceful welcome. We found Terry and Jane very friendly and accommodating, including providing a homemade welcome tea and cake on arrival-nice touch! Breakfast is second to none including a wide choice for those having a longer stay- don't miss out on the bacon-we need to find Terry and Jane's supplier! The decor is new and the lounge and guest rooms invitingly clean and comfortable. TV's, phones and Wi-Fi available with tea making facilities in each room. The B& B has a lovely mature garden which guests are able to use, frequented by a wide variety of birds. There are many walks available from Edale house itself and Terry has produced some information about these for walkers to follow. There are many other attractions to visit for all tastes. Perfect accommodation for a holiday in the Forest!

Stayed at Edale House to visit friends in the area. Room extremely comfortable with all the amenities we could wish for . Jane and Terry go that extra mile to make you feel welcome with tea and cake on arrival and a superb breakfast, especially the home made whiskey marmalade! Another nice touch is the well stocked honesty bar. We were among the first guests to use the refurbished lounge and dining room, which have been decorated to a very high standard and the lounge is very warm and cosy. We have rebooked to return in May for the bluebells which we are told are stunning in the forest. Highly recommend Edale House to anyone wanting a great break in the Forest of Dean.

Three walkers stayed for two days and we rated it as one of the best we have stayed in. Food was excellent, rooms well equipped and warm, very good beds, TV etc. Terry was very helpful with local knowledge and we enjoyed his company. All round an excellent venue for the Forest of Dean.

Three of us meet together to walk different parts of the country. we are now doing the Gloucester way. Edale House was perfect. Very welcoming in a relaxed and helpful way. The rooms were good and the bed very comfy. The lounge was just right and the welcome afternoon tea was spot on, as was breakfast and the plentiful packed lunches. It has a specific drying room which was great after our day in the rain! All this at a very affordable price. I would definitely recommend and the Pub next door is a true local with excellent food.
