The property is great, extremely well furnished, bathrooms like a high-end hotel, a working kitchen with all spices/pots/etc you need. Interesting top floor layout with 6 bedrooms that's hard to understand until you're there. The only thing to keep in mind is the 'back' bedroom with it's own stairs access and noisy from the pitching, stairs are steRead moreep so may not be ideal for children, but does have a gate that's helpful.

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.

Good location, well equipped, warm, comfortable, helpful manager. Made good use of the Globe pub and local petrol station.

Spacious, peaceful and with a terrific view over the Severn, this house really is ideal for a family get together. Plenty to see and do in the surrounding area, as well as being within walking distance of a convenience shop and pub. We couldn't really fault it!

The house was amazing - it has been decorated to an extremely high standard and was very comfortable. The extra touches - for example bottles of prosecco for our party - was hugely appreciated. Would definitely recommend!
