Eleven friends in our eleventh year of spending the weekend away together. Everyone felt this was the best property we had stayed in, clean, tidy and homely. With lovely views across to the Severn. It has been suggested we return. It is ideally situated for visiting the Forest of Dean, Wales and Herefordshire.
