“Fantastic Cottage with Fantastic Views”
Reviewed September 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A really nice cottage, fitted out to a very high standard, with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside and the river severn. Based in a very quite area, where there is no noise, making it ever more relaxing.
Good for walking and hiking, with lots of good tracks and trails to follow. Ideal for dog owners. Close enough to the town (Cinderford) to access local amenities, but far enough outside to be quite, relaxing and provide those fantastic views.
Thank you very much for a great holiday.

“Little gem”
Reviewed June 26, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

So nice to find a holiday cottage which lives up to it's description and previous reviews. Set in beautiful location with wonderful views, the barn is furnished to a very high standard and the extra touches, such as food and wine, make this a very special place and one which we would happily recommend and return to.

“Very nice base.”
Reviewed June 18, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We booked the barn for a short mini honeymoon. The property was lovely and clean, finished to a great standard and well laid out. Made a good base for exploring the wider area around The Forest of Dean.

“Lovely Cottage with Excellent Views over the River Severn”
Reviewed April 21, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Overlooks the River Severn which is 3-4 miles away. On arrival there was a bottle of wine, chocolates and a veggie box waiting for us. Secure garden for dogs. Excellent decoration with all wooden and tiled flooring. Comfortable furniture. Fully supplied kitchen, also supplied were DVDs, CDs, books and SKY television. Be aware however that the water is on an eco system and this can be temperamental causing on occasion cold showers and cold water rather than hot. Also the bannister rail on the way up to the bedroom is only loosely fitted and don't lean to hard on it. However Zoe is only to pleased to come and sort out any problems you may have.

Thank you for your review. The rail was due to wear and tear and as discussed our building team have already been in to make the rail safe once more. Also as discussed our technician has been in to check on the heating and this issue has now been fixed. Best Wishes, Zoe & James.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed March 26, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My mum, myself and my 2 dogs stayed here for 3 nights while we visited family, it was perfect! 2 minutes from beautiful forest walks, just over a 5 minute walk to the town centre. An amazing view from the back of the barn.
On our arrival there was a hamper of fresh veg, wine and chocolates along with milk, tea and coffee.

Lovely warm rooms, everything you need in the kitchen, it was just lovely and will Definately be returning as was a very reasonable price too with very helpful owners.

“Warm, welcoming cottage - perfect base for exporing Forest of Dean.”

Woodland Barn provided everything we could wish for in a holiday home - beautifully presented cottage, gorgeous views, quiet location within easy reach of local shops and forest walks. Fresh flowers, a bottle of wine and chocolates on arrival, as well as basics such as tea/coffee and milk all helped to make us feel welcome. Our 10 & 17 year olds were also happy with sky tv & WiFi. There were even spare dog bowls provided ( we had brought our own!). We will definitely recommend Woodland Barn to friends and family and hope to visit again soon.

Woodland Barn ticked all the boxes for us. The location was quiet with beautiful views and offered easy access to local shops and to the Forest of Dean. The cottage was clean and furnished to a high standard. It was such a lovely environment to just relax in especially out on the terrace which enjoyed sunshine most of the day. Nothing quite like breakfast in the sun...lunch too! What's more, it's a perfect choice to accommodate dogs. This was a last minute booking and the owners couldn't have made it easier. They were very welcoming and extremely helpful. We look forward to staying again.
