Right from the outset we received a very warm welcome from Claire, who could not have been more accommodating. (She came to our rescue when we discovered we'd left our dog leads at home!) The apartment was in a beautiful location with glorious views and literally yards from the forest trail to the rock. The room itself was spotlessly clean... More

Stayed in the B&B for a night midway through walking the Wysis Way. Great location. The couple running it are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice. The room was warm and clean. Loads of helpful information in the rooms and in the breakfast room. As others have said, the walls are fairly thin, but it wasn't too busy so... More

Nice walk to Symonds Yat through the forest to riverside (good pub serving excellent meals). Many lovely places to visit in the area.

What a wonderful place, beautiful scenery, right next to the Forest of Dean, excellent location. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and so were the other guests. We stayed in a one bedroom lodge with our dogs which was lovely, just like the pictures show. There were a few cobwebs in the ceilings and one or two spiders, it... More

Lovely place to stay....very clean and comfortable, with everything you might need for a week. Beautiful location too. Fabulous views across the countryside at the back and straight across the road at the front to walk in the forest.

I stayed in a double room. On arrival I felt that the room didn't smell all that fresh although it appeared clean. The towels had a stale washing odour and the shower lacked power. The bed was appalling - the springs were sticking out and noisy. The breakfast was good although the dining room had a damp smell. It would... More
