Guest Comments

“Very cosy and comfortable farmhouse. Would definitely stay again. 2 minute walk to a friendly local pub with lovely food. 10 minute drive to the White Hart Pub overlooking the river, very good food.”

Diane, October 2019

“There are a few niggly points – for example, the ceiling above the shower needs repapering/repainting, some of the internal door catches were difficult to latch securely, but apart from minor issues, it is a lovely holiday home with plenty of character (mind some of the low doorways that make up part of the character!)There was plenty of room, a very large lounge area easily able to cope with the whole party.The owner Sue was helpful, and available if needed, otherwise let us get on with our stay.The area is brilliant (we haven’t been there before) with loads of things to do and places to visit.The only downside is that if you’re addicted to WiFi, you shouldn’t go. If you want to get away from WiFi, do go!Thoroughly recommended.”

“We had a lovely stay at the old farmhouse. Upon arrival the house was very clean and well presented. The location is great with lots of family days out a short drive away. The forest of Dean is beautiful with plenty of great walks on the doorstep. The house was well equiped and spacious, comfortably fitting 6 adults and 2 children. Unfortunately the washing machine did break during our stay but that’s just one of those things that can’t be helped. We really enjoyed our time at the old farmhouse and wouldnt hesitate to book again. I would highly recommend.”
