“FANTASTIC”

What an amazing place to stay. I stayed with my husband and our 22 month old daughter and we loved it from the second we got there. Sue (the owner) met us on arrival and she could not have been any more pleasant and welcoming. She showed us around the barn and the grounds. The attention to detail was brilliant. We received a welcome pack which also included a birthday card for myself, which was really sweet, Thank You :-). The barn was so clean and had everything you could think of in it to use. They had even left some toys out for our daughter to play with. The swimming pool was brilliant. Clean and just the right temperature. There was inflatables left out for us to use, which we did.
I would highly recommend Wibdon Barn. I have told all my friends and family about it. I would definitely go back.

“Perfect place to relax!!!”
Reviewed 12 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed for 3 nights to celebrate our son's 7th birthday. Our son has autism so we decided to rent out a place with private pool.
Wibdon Barn is perfect situated in 7 acres of land! What more can we ask! We are so lucky to have found this place. Sue & Peter are very nice, helpful and accomodating! The house is very beautiful and was spotless, complete with everything we needed. We dipped in the pool several times.They provided all the inflatables and swimming gadgets.
We would definitely book again!

A hidden gem, in the most beautiful surroundings! We were given a very warm welcome and made to feel at home. The barn is very modern, spacious and has everything you need and more. Can't wait to go back!

“Perfect holiday home from home.”
Reviewed 19 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We received a lovely warm welcome from Sue and Peter on our arrival and Sue gave us a tour of the barn, swimming pool and grounds.To say we were impressed is an understatement! Wibdon barn and it's surroundings are absolutely beautiful and Sue's attention to detail is very impressive, absolutely everything you could require (bar clothing) was available. Here are some of the item...teabags, milk, juice, hand soap, kitchen roll, washing up liquid, dishwasher and washing machine tablets, variety of linen, fully equipped kitchen, picnic blanket, clothes airer, night light, pool toys, XBox, children's bikes and scooters etc. Sue even kindly left us a welcome basket including wine and little chocolate eggs for our daughters as we stayed over Easter. Sue also supplied a complete folder of tourist information and specific events for the week we stayed and gave suggestions of places we may enjoy as a family, Puzzlewood and Perrygrove railway to name two. We specifically chose Wibdon barn based on the previous reviews and the indoor swimming pool and we were not disappointed. We couldn't get our 3 and 9 year olds out of the pool, they absolutely loved it! There were plenty of inflatable toys provided that they preferred to the one's we'd bought along ;-) Plus the swing set in the garden and various balls, frisbees, bikes, scooters and lots and lots of space for the children to run around (the barn is enclosed behind tall, electronic gates) it was a great environment for them. We were also really lucky with the weather which was glorious! When we did venture out there was plenty to go and see and we didn't have to travel far at all. We particularly enjoyed the Taurus craft centre and the crazy golf ajoining it. It was a brilliant and unforgettable holiday. Much credit and appreciatation to Sue who made us feel more like family than holiday guests.

“Couldn't fault it - a great base to explore the Forest of Dean”
Reviewed 3 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I agree with all the previous comments from other guests. We were made to feel very welcome and the pack of juice, milk, tea and biscuits was a great bonus. Sue has thought of everything and the house is furnished like somebody's home rather than a holiday rental. Light, spacious and amazing views. For our two boys, the pool (goggles and flip flops provided!) and xbox were a big wow factor. Easy to find, close to Chepstow and loads of activities within a 40 minute or less drive. We visited Symonds Yat Rock and East, Forest of Dean sculpture trail, Dewstow Gardens and Gloucester cathedral and docks. Still loads more to do so will definately return next year. My final word - if it gets the thumbs up from a teenage boy, then it must be worth a visit!
