The accommodation was spacious and well set out with comfortable furnishings and ample natural light. Good location for visiting a host of places within one hour drive, such as the Cotswolds, the Malvern Hills and Eastnor for the castle. Lovely pub within five minute drive which does great food and have very welcoming staff, plus it is dog friendlyRead more. Our hosts Mr and Mrs Smith were great, on hand to help with anything needed.

The holiday house is very well situated for exploring the beautiful Forest of Dean. It offers roomy, light and comfortable accommodation. We were made to feel very welcome and much appreciated the wine and doggy treats! Great to have a secure garden for the dog and very convenient parking.
