“Just complete bliss!!!”
Reviewed 1 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Where to start, so much to say:
Idyllic, blissful, outstanding comfort, great luxury and excellent idiot proof notes/advice for the home and surrounding area .
Wonderful evenings relaxing on the terrace, in the hot tub/sauna and in front of the log fire.
The guide to the surrounding area and walks were amazing we tried almost everything and didn't get lost!
Jayne and Phil's care and help before, during and after our stay was so very kind (yummy cake on our arrival along with the necessary basics tea, coffee, milk OJ etc. was very considerate)
Have recommended to our friends and family, this home away from home will not disappoint!
Oh and the views from all windows ...........fantastic.

“Relaxing break with the girls!”
Reviewed 5 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Visited The Reddings just last weekend for a long weekend break with my friends. There were 4 of us and we booked after seeing excellent reviews on Airbnb. A warm welcome from Jayne and Phill, who were just leaving as we arrived, and they gave us a tour of the quirky property. Rooms are cosy and well-furnished and the house has a lot of character. The two deckings were our favourite places- the top with its hot tub and chiminea that we used every evening- and the bottom with its sauna and swing bench for enjoying the view over a morning cup of tea. Good location and easy to get to Puzzlewood, canoeing on the River Wye, a short drive to Monmouth and Goodrich castle and we even drove to Cardiff (1hr).

“Fantastic cottage for a short break”
Reviewed 22 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

person found this review helpful

Just  returned from a wonderful  4 night break with my family and our dog. The cottage is fantastic, cozy and has everything you need for a short stay. The view is amazing, its hard to stop yourself sitting outside to relax or enjoy the view from the hot tub! There is plenty of space to relax, the bedrooms are very comfortable and has a well equipped kitchen. For extra relaxation there is also a sauna. Phill and Jayne are a lovely couple and keep in touch. I would definitely recommend a stay here, great location for exploring the Forest of Dean.

“Amazing stay in a beautiful location !”
Reviewed 14 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We stayed here Friday to Sunday recently with a group of girls for a 50th birthday. The house is extremely well equipped and has everything you need for a very comfortable stay, more homely than you would usually get. The hot tub and the sauna were an added bonus and its lovely to sit in the hot tub and look out onto the sprawling hills. Phill was very helpful prior to booking and during our stay and nothing was too much of a problem. There were full instruction guides in the house so everything was very easy to use and understand. We went to the local pub ten minutes walk away the Royal Springs and had a lovely meal. All in all a fantastic weekend in a beautiful house that I would highly recommend!.

“Most beautiful place”
Reviewed 13 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I can not recommend this place enough. It is truly beautiful the photos are lovely but even they don't do it justice. Firstly Phil and Jayne were amazing. Very speedy at replying to emails - and answered any questions I had straight away. I booked this as a surprise for my boyfriend as it was a birthday, we went away with 4 of our friends aswell and they all loved it! Very spacious and cosy all at the same time. The house is like a maze with all the different floors; there is so much character. The outside and the views were breathtaking. The sauna - WOW. We will definitely be returning!
