Dryslade Farm
Ranked #4 of 11 Coleford B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 April 2011

After reading so many reviews on Dryslade Farm, we decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed. It was our first trip to UK & our first farmstay experience...needless to say, both Daphne & Phil really made us feel very at home, providing us with lots of information & recommendations for places to be visited...

Just like what others have commented, we were often welcoming tea & Daphne's to-die-for cake (still miss it very much...). And our room is simply fantastic...very well kept, clean, tidy & neat....Dryslade Farm also provide us with very good breakfast in the conservatory, specially prepared by Daphne herself....marvelous....

For those of you would like to experience relaxing by the fireplace, you can definitely do so here...have a cup of tea, read a book, etc.....

From the moment we arrived we were made welcome. We had everything we needed in the room. Our dog was happily tolerated and able to sleep in our room. Breakfast was delicious, in a pleasant conservatory surrounded by garden and with beautiful views. The sitting room is delightful with a foaring log fire and comfy sofas. We felt comfortable and relaxed at all times. The location is perfect for the Forest of Dean and Monmouth.

We stayed for two nights with friends - all we can say is what an amazing find! One of our friends found this and she couldn't have chosen better. On arrival, we were given cups of tea and homemade cake in a beautiful lounge with a roaring fire and Daphne was very welcoming. All the rooms were very well presented with so much attention to detail. There was a fridge on the landing with water and fresh milk in for us to help ourselves. The beds were really comfortable, and the bedrooms quiet. Each evening the fire was lit and we had sole use of the lounge to relax in. Phil was a great source of local knowledge, and also a great chef for breakfast! The local pub, the Dog and Muffler was excellent, but as previous reviewers have mentioned, it is essential to book early for a weekend.
All six of us would thoroughly recommend a stay at Dryslade Farm and will guarantee the hospitality! Thank you Daphne and Phil.

Location was the driving force in our quest to find accommodation and we feel very lucky to have found Dryslade Farm, most do not meet our requirements, this exceeded!

Nice room (Primrose), good comfy bed, quiet, excellent breakfast, owners are lovely and do a good job ensuring you are happy.

Certainly would recommend or use again if required.

Stayed here with my 13 year old son at the end of a long days walking. Very welcoming and friendly couple - went out of their way to help with our dinner arrangements when we'd failed to book the local pub (make sure you book if you're staying on a Saturday night). Excellent location - very picturesque. Lovely rooms and very comfortable beds. Superb (and big) breakfast of local produce. Will definitely be back with the rest of the family in tow.

This is the most amazingly hospitable accomodation l have EVER found. The hosts are so accomodating, driving to pick me up from the local resturant when it started to pour with rain! what service! I have also stayed with my family and they have gone out of their way to make a Christmas in England the most memorable for my 3 young children. I defy anyone to find anything better, - old world warmth & charm coupled with value for money - what more could a guest want!!

Generally I like to move from place to place for holidays and long weekends, but Dryslade farm is the exception. We have been returning there for over 20 years, initially with all the family , and have never been disappointed. The owners, Daph & Phil are brilliant, the rooms beautifully and comfortably furnished, spotlessly clean and the breakfasts, an experience on their own. Add to this an ideal location for a peaceful break with loads of places to explore, the Dog & Doublet just down the road for evening meals, what could be better. Just one problem - the calorie count - good job one can do loads of walking!
