“The perfect location for a family get together!”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Booked Ingleside for my 50th Birthday as it was ideally located between Yorkshire and Cornwall for my family to all get together.

The house is fantastic for a large group - there are enough seating areas that a large party can separate off into groups and the dining room is perfect for everyone to come together for family meals. The garden is absolutely beautiful - so peaceful. The wisteria is gorgeous and my parents were thrilled that the garden was visited each day by a spotted woodpecker.

The house is centrally located for visiting Gloucester, Hay on Wye and ideal for the Forest of Dean. We were blessed by good weather and spent 3 evenings of our visit eating in the garden - there is ample outdoor furniture and a barbecue which my nephews put to good use, cooking up a storm! The hot tub great fun too.

We had four cars and parking was no problem and we could have had another one parked easily as well. Whilst the house and the location were wonderful what really made it for us was the wonderful welcome from the owner. I rang him before we arrived to ask for recommendations of places to eat locally and explained that the visit was for my 50th Birthday. He called round the evening we arrived just to check everything was OK and to show me how the hot tub worked and was friendly and welcoming, whilst he lives next door his presence is not in the least intrusive. I was so touched by the fact that on the evening of my birthday his partner called round with a bottle of prosecco and a birthday card - a lovely gesture which was really appreciated.

All in all a fabulous stay and I would happily recommend Ingleside.

“A lovely, comfortable, fully equipped and well situated cottage.”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had an amazing time staying at Ingleside. The bedrooms are clean and well furnished with lovely views. There are very spacious living areas including a large dining area that could seat up to 14, an open plan kitchen perfect for a party and a big lounge ideal for games and family gatherings. The hot tub is super, especially in the late afternoon as the sun is going down. We had a bbq in the garden and played lawn games in the field. The ping-pong table was particularly popular on our visit. My only negative point is that there is no Internet connection in the property. The phone signal is patchy so getting 3G is tricky :(

The cottage is very well situated, as it is very easy to visit all of the local activities. (Nearby walks along the River Severn, water activities such as canoeing on the River Wye, the stunning Forest of Dean, a crazy golf course, the beautiful water gardens and much more!) I would recommend the Red Lion pub, which is just around the corner for excellent pub grub!

The owner was particularly helpful and friendly. We felt very looked after. I would definitely like to return for another visit!

“Perfect Family Retreat”
Reviewed 1 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Ingleside is a house that accommodated our extended family perfectly. The house is well appointed with sizeable gardens for children both young and old who aged in range from 9 to 21! Table tennis kept the children happy and hot tub kept adults even happier! If you are looking for a venue for a relaxing holiday or place to host a celebratory gathering, look no further. Looking forward to visiting again.

“Terrific short stay in this comfortable house”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We were a group of 14 looking for a house that could fit us all comfortably, and Ingleside ticked all the boxes. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for us all, a good-sized kitchen, spacious dining room and several different places to sit and chat, so we weren't falling over each other at any time (there are 3 different seating areas in the house. ) One twin bedroom is downstairs with the remaining bedrooms up one flight.

The hot tub proved popular, as did the games area with ping pong table. There is a good sized private garden, with plenty of tables and chairs -- the garden faces a fenced paddock which one can access through a gate.

The owner was very helpful and friendly, showing us the best spots for afternoon sunshine, recommending where to get a good pub dinner, explaining all about the hot tub (which he pops by to service every couple of days.) We really felt he wanted us to have a great time at Ingleside.

Gloucester is about 15 mins away, as is a huge supermarket , the Forest of Dean nearby, and yet one feels really private here in this small hamlet.

We would stay here again, which is the best sign of our having had a good time.
