The pump house feels as if it's well off the beaten track but it's still very accessible. It's very peaceful and surrounded by trees (Lydney estate). Driving up the lane one evening we saw a heard of deer crossing in front of us heading into the forest. How cool is that.
Lydney house is only open for two months in the spring and well worth a visit. the Roman settlement is particularly impressive, as is the museum attached to the house. (the cakes in the tea room are mouth watering and well worth sampling). the formal gardens are extensive and full of colour this time of year.
The pump house is spacious and well appointed. Very well presented, clean and tidy. They had even laid the fire for us. The beds are very very comfortable.
A fantastic place. more
