“Ideal location, lovely room, delicious breakfast, very kind owners”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

We visited for a weekend and were only able to book the larger apartment 5. We loved it and were glad we paid the extra, spacious and well equiped. The owners offer a delicious breakfast with lovely sausages and even home made jam! They could not have been more helpful with lots of information about the area. I would recommend this lodge to all my family & friends.
The lodge is ideally located between the Forest of Dean and the River Wye.

Room Tip: Apartment 5 is very nice, but the most expensive

Reviewed 17 October 2013

This was a real find! Self catering apartment which is clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you need. I chose this because I was on a walking and foraging holiday and wanted somewhere from which to explore the Forest of Dean where I could kick off my boots and cook my finds in the evening.

An excellent pub by the River Wye is a 1.5 mile walk or 3 mile drive away and there are plenty of others further afield. The entrance to the Forest is immediately over the road and, in my first outing, I saw a fallow deer within seconds.

The owners are happy to discuss and describe walks for all abilities and there are plenty of local attractions (with brochures in the information pack). Can't really understand why this place is a bit cheaper than its immediate competitors.

Wi-fi in my room wasn't great (blocked by very effective sound-proofing) but there are areas where it's good and very usable, plus many local pubs have free wifi.

My friend and I enjoyed two nights in one of the excellent self-catering apartments. Warm, comfortable, extremely convenient for our fishing and thoroughly clean!
Well done and many thanks to Claire and Darren. We will be back again!

Reviewed 14 September 2013

Really enjoyed this lovely B & B room was spotlessly clean and very warm and friendly welcome and very helpful. Our only complaint was the soundproofing of the room, but this was not a major problem. The forest walk just across the road was beautiful and our dog loved it.

Room Tip: We stayed in the four poster room which was the first room so only had one ajoining wall.

We stayed two nights at the Lodge. The owners could not have done more to make it a memorable visit. The views were great and a great place for walking. Superb breakfast. We stayed in Room 3 and the only criticism was the soundproofing of the walls allowing us to hear the neighbours TV. Apart from that BRILLIANT

We have just got back from staying at the lodge. It was really clean, lovely lay out of the accomodation and they supply the little things you dont think to take ( eg dishwasher tablets, abit of milk, hair dryer etc)
The view from your patio and the garden is amazing!
The owner is happy to help with whatever you need.
Would definately stay again!! :-)
