“Home from home!”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had a lovely stay at the coachouse for our first family holiday. The welcome was lovely and little touches made us feel very welcome! There were clean beds treats and toys for the dogs and treats for us too which was very appreciated. The name on our little girls room was a lovely touch too. The coachouse was very comfortable and there was lots of information on places to go and local walks too with great views. Would definitely recommend as a base to explore the surrounding areas or stay in and enjoy the comfort!

I am delighted that you found the Forest Coach House a real home from home and especially so as it was your very first family holiday with your beautiful baby daughter. I do hope to see you all back again one day with your two very well behaved little dogs so you can explore the area with its many sites to see and things to do. Best wishes, Tracey

“What a fantastic stay!!!!”
Reviewed May 9, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We were a little bit nervous about holidaying so far away from home with a very young baby but we shouldn't have worried. From the moment we pulled into the driveway we knew this holiday was going to be special. The house from the outside was well maintained and situated in a quiet area close to local amenities with beautiful, well looked after gardens surrounding the property.

On arrival we were greeted by the owner Tracey who was a lovely host, who made us all feel very welcome. She showed us around the property and we were immediately struck by how homely it felt. I can't stress enough how much attention to detail went in to our stay. Tracey thought of everything you could need in a home away from home, from board games to keep the family entertained, to a hairdryer in the bedroom so you don't have to live with frizz after showering! There was a sign outside welcoming us all, fresh flowers on the table, a bottle of wine in the fridge (along with milk for the all important cuppa) and muffins in the table.

The home itself is spacious and well decorated with quality fittings and decor rather than the bland beige and brown you tend to get in hotels.

The location is perfect. You can see the Welsh mountains from the living room window and Cinderford is located only about 30 mins drive from Gloucester, 45 mins or so from Cheltenham and about an hour from Wales so it's great if you want to do some exploring of the local area. It's also a small pretty town with local pubs nearby and plenty of places to walk and explore. I'd definitely recommend Slimbridge Wetlands for a visit for the family.

I would definitely recommend the Forest Coach House as a holiday home, and I'm sure that when my partner, son and I come back to Gloucestershire we'd stay here again. Many thanks to Tracey for making us feel so welcome.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. As you say Gloucester and Cheltenham can be easily reached with a pleasant countryside drive (or bus ride) and we are just over the border from Wales so you can be in the historic market town of Monmouth within about 20 minutes and Cardiff is an easy train journey of less than an hour. The Forest Coach House is an ideal size for young families like yours and it was a pleasure to meet you. I look forward to welcoming you back again when I will be only too pleased to extend a very warm welcome after such a long journey! Best wishes, Tracey

My husband and I have just returned from a week in the Forest Coach House and cannot fault it , we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is very well equipped , beautifully decorated and as all the other reviewers have said, Tracey was very welcoming and made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. I would highly recommend a stay here if you are planning a holiday in the Forest of Dean, you wont be disappointed.

“Relaxing & peacefuly getaway - home from home!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed for the weekend with our dog Arnold and from the minute we pulled up and saw the chalk board with all our names on it welcoming us in we knew we would be relaxed and have a very enjoyable weekend. The muffins and wine were a lovely treat as was the dog toy and treats for Arnold! The Forest Coach House is deceptively large with 2 bedrooms, kitchen/diner, bathroom and lounge area with views across the Forest. We were advised of many walks and pubs to visit and Tracy was extremely welcoming and is clearly a very homely and family orientated person which is reflected in the personal touches around house.
We will certainly look to return with the new addition that is due to our family in July as we know we would be welcomed back with open arms!

Thanks for your lovely review, I'm so glad you had a relaxing break and I really do hope you return soon; there's plenty of space in either bedroom for your travel cot and lots of easy tracks through the woods suitable for a pushchair. Roll on the summer! Good luck to you both and I'm looking forward to a cuddle with Arnold and the baby!

“Wonderful welcome and accommodation!”
Reviewed February 26, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We had a lovely stay at The Forest Coach House, Tracey was very welcoming and even left us homemade muffins, wine and milk. The house is very well furnished and has every thing we needed throughout our stay, we did a lot of cooking and all the utensils we needed were there. The area is very scenic and great for walking. We also visited Henry Weston's cider mill, great for a day out in all weathers. We highly recommend a stay at The Forest Coach House and we will be back soon!

Thank you. I'm so glad you found everything you needed and had such a good time. Hopefully when we see you again, the weather will be warmer and drier so you can discover even more things to do around and about and maybe try a spot of alfresco dining with the BBQ! Best wishes, Tracey.

“Practically perfect in every way!”
Reviewed December 16, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We had a wonderful stay here. Tracey put so much effort into everything even the contact before arriving. We arrived to a very warm welcome, heating on; fresh flowers, milk and wine in the fridge, homemade mince pies and the house decorated for us beautifully even biscuits for our little dog. We felt so welcomed and comfortable. The house has everything you could need all the mod cons alongside some lovely homely touches. Even the linen was provided. The location is excellent too great for walkers and sight seers and if you just want to relax the house is so comfortable and peaceful there’s no need to leave. I cannot express how lovely this weekend has been you’ve made it perfect thank you. Especially for the decorations and the real Christmas tree you went above and beyond and my mom was over the moon. Thanks again and see you soon we will defiantly be returning.
