I stayed at Old Nibley Farmhouse on 11th January 2012. This was my 7th or 8th visit. My special needs adult children are all based in the Forest of Dean area (one at the fabulous Taurus Crafts just up the road) so I come to visit or for reviews. I am usually on my own and it is just wonderful to know that after a very long drive and a very busy day I can crawl back to Old Nibley and know that I'll find a warm, spotlessly clean, comfortable and cosy room and Marion and Gary to welcome me! It means I can go to meetings fresh and raring to go the next day having enjoyed one of Marion's magnificent breakfasts (home-made meusli, compote, bread and often the jam too!). Her scrambled eggs are the best I've ever tasted!! I can feel safe, very cossetted and relaxed which is a God-send!
Many thanks for creating such a lovely haven! Best night's sleep I've had in a long time.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The living-room and the bedroom directly above are probably the oldest part of the house, dating back some 300 years; the rest of the building being added over the centuries. There are 2 double bedrooms with king size beds, a twin with 2 singles, and the single room has a 4 wide bed (standard single 3 wide) - comfort for the discerning guest being our main priority. All the rooms in the house have central heating and there is a constant supply of hot water. Enjoy tea or coffee with cakes in our large garden or courtyard (weather permitting), or in the living room in front of a large open fireplace. Homemade cakes and preserves a specialty of the house.The property is conveniently located for easy access to explore the Royal Forest of Dean. Resplendent in late spring, acres of bluebells cover the forest floor spilling over mounds and hugging the bases of trees. It is a wonderful place for walking, and in autumn you are rewarded with the rich reds, golds and rusts as the trees shed their leaves and await the oncoming winter. ... more less
