“Fantastic cottage with great views”
Reviewed March 13, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We have just stayed in the barn for a long weekend. It was wonderful , full of character and very well appointed. Everything we Needed was their and you have to book it if only for the views over the Severn valley. We took our dog and I think he enjoyed it as much as us. The terrace and garden are secure so he had the run of the place.

Would we go back , you bet already planning it, a real gem.

“Gorgeous Views, Perfect Little Getaway/Bolthole”
Reviewed October 29, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This converted little barn is surprisingly spacious. There were four of us (2 couples) and 3 dogs and we were all very comfortable.
The location was great for dog walks straight from the barn, or a quick drive in the car for fabulous Forest Walks.
The barn stocked everything we could possibly have needed.

I highly recommend this property for quiet, get away from it all, break. We hope to be back next year!

“A little gem”
Reviewed September 25, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The cottage was perfect. It was immaculately fitted out and really well equipped. The view from the garden at the back was just stunning.
The owners gave us their phone number in case we needed anything, but we did not need to contact them for anything. We did have cause to need a vet, but the number and address was in the information file and the vet was very kind and soon cleared up the problem.
Our 11 month old golden retriever loved the cottage and the secure patio and lawn.
The area is beautiful and we had lots of walks in the forest, Symonds Yat Rock is an absolute must.
The welcome pack was a lovely touch - wine, chocolates and lots of lovely fresh vegetables. There were also fresh flowers in the kitchen and the lounge area.
All in all a very successful holiday in all respects.

“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.
