“Felt really at home!”
Reviewed 8 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Stayed here last weekend and was over the moon that we booked it! Spotlessly clean, loads of facilities and a brilliantly thoughtful welcome pack! Sue and Peter were so helpful with recommendations for me and my children on local attractions and restaurants but honestly we didn't want to leave the house and gardens! The pool was warm, clean and private and lots of inflatables! It was all perfect! Thanks so much - I have already recommended the barn to lots of friends and family!

Just thrilled that you were able to relax and chill after a rather eventful few months! It would be lovely if you were to come and run and shout and swim again.

“Perfection!”
Reviewed 13 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We have just returned from the most wonderful week at the barn. It was so good we decided to stay an extra night as we didn't want our holiday to end. The accommodation was to a very high standard and was immaculately clean. The grounds were heavenly and so picturesque. The pool was a real hit with our girls, as was the play area and numerous toys, bikes and play equipment. Sue and Peter offered us the warmest of welcomes and really thought of everything possible to ensure we had the most enjoyable stay. We took the opportunity to explore the local area which has plenty to offer to all ages. Puzzlewood was amazing as was Tintern Abbey, Clearwell Caves and of course the huge zip wire at the National Diving Centre just down the road. Lovely people and a lovely, lovely place. We can't recommend Wibdon highly enough. Would have stayed even longer if we could have!

“Fantastic first family holiday”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Wibdon Barn more than exceeded our expectations in every way. The pictures do not do this place justice, and felt much larger and more homely than expected. Our son thoroughly enjoyed using the pool each day, and it was a wonderful letting him play freely in the safe and secure large grounds of the property. Sue and Peter have created a warm and welcoming home from home place to stay for a holiday, whether you need a homely base for exploring the wonderful Forest of Dean, or somewhere to just kick back and unwind. Our only hope is that not too many people discover this hidden gem, so we can book to re-visit in the future!
