We were a group of 14 and had a fantastic New Year in Forest Lodge . The house is huge but surprisingly warm and comfortable. It is well situated for local walks and walking in the Beacons . You couldn't say that the place is high end designer chic but it had everything we needed to cater for ourselves, and the mattresses weren't those superhot foaRead morem things ~ everyone slept soundly .

We loved Forest Lodge Farmhouse! It's huge with a great choice of very comfy beds, lots of crockery, cooking utensils, glassware etc. It's rustic and homely, totally unpretentious, so if you're looking for somewhere a bit "posh", this isn't for you. But if you're looking for somewhere really comfortable with a beautiful enclosed garden with lots ofRead more space for outdoor games and in a great location for wonderful walks, then this is definitely the place! We would love to return. Hide
