We have stayed there 3 years running for my birthday every March. The rooms are clean with all mod cons. We also take our Border Collie who loves the forest which is opposite the lodge. The views out the back are great and the sheep give you a taste of the countryside.

Will defiantly go again next year :-)

We stayed for three pleasant nights in an ideal semi rural location for us to travel around the forest of dean and surrounding area. The room was excellent, clean and the bed exceptionally comfortable.The owners were very accommodating, helpful and friendly which made our stay even more enjoyable. The breakfasts were delicious ample and hearty. We would have no hesitation to return to this accommodation in future.

We stayed here for valentines weekend during the heavy storms.
The accommodation was lovely, best equipped self catering I've been to and the views were outstanding. The first night there was a power cut which left us in darkness well into the next day. The owners provided candles and heated out food for us. We had bought breakfast for two days but had to go out and eat in a cafe. The owners gave us a bottle of prosecco for the inconvenience which of course wasn't there fault. Can't help thinking that an offer of a return nights may have been courteous.

Overall it's excellent accommodation and well worth checking out, we found it to be reasonable value and would consider staying again.

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

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!
