“Break away”
Reviewed 20 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Just got back from a surprise week end booked as a pressy from my boss, had such a lovely break, the scenery was breathtaking and we were so lucky with good wether we were able to enjoy the garden. Sookie our dog loved the freedom there especially talking to the goats everyday lol!! Had a lovely welcome pack on arrival which was very much appreciated! So peaceful there no noice apart from birds and the sky 1 night you could see so many stars! Would definitely recommend this bus as a break away from it all! Many thanks

“Lovely family holiday”
Reviewed 19 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Perfect place to have some much-needed fun as a family (2 adults, one 8 year old). Son much enjoyed building fire to toast marshmallows and even dinner, and "driving" the bus. We loved feeding the goats and were even treated to a family of wild boar trouping past in the field opposite on two evenings. Adults enjoyed watching the stars outside in the evening. Lovely hot shower, well appointed kitchenette, well thought out welcome basket, great coffee machine. Garden felt very secluded although we were near enough to have a chat with the owners and other guests, and to pet their dogs. Hope to be back next year!

“Relaxing and quirky retreat”
Reviewed 1 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Our family had paid for us to spend a weekend at the Red Bus for our 25th wedding anniversary. What a fantastic gift. Jane and Lee gave us a very warm welcome (including decorating the bus with bunting!). The bus is just great, quirkily converted it retains enough of its original fixtures and fittings (including driver's seat and steering wheel) so you are always aware you are on a bus, but has comfortable bedrooms, galley kitchen, living room and toilet (shower room is in a small building alongside). Outside is a decked area, a fire pit and large area of grass.

The Red Bus is set in a quiet valley, so wherever you are in the bus you get a great view of open fields, trees and the wider Gloucestershire countryside. There are some very entertaining goats in the neighbouring paddock.

Our two children (girls 8 and 11) loved our stay. It's a great location from which to explore the Forest of Dean, but equally you could have a great break if you never left the bus at all!

Despite being close to other houses and holiday let's it still feels remote. (We were told there had been a lovely party taking place nearby during our stay, but we never heard a thing!).

As a family we couldn't recommend The Red Bus highly enough.

“The trip of a lifetime”
Reviewed 24 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I booked the Big Red Bus as a birthday treat for my two granddaughters and their Mum came along for the ride and what a ride it was. The views from different windows gave the impression that the bus was moving although it was stationary. The peace and tranquillity and fantastic views, the friendly goats and horses together with the friendly hospitality of Jane and Lee made it a truly wonderful experience and we hope to return real soon.

“A truly magical experience.”
Reviewed 18 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Booked this as a surprise for my wife's 5oth birthday and can honestly say it surpassed all my expectations. The setting is absolutely magical and the bus has clearly been renovated and designed with much love. Lee and Jane's attention to detail is second to none. Sitting outside in the evening watching all the local wildlife while cooking over the firepit was an experience not to be missed and Jane had even decorated the bus with birthday bunting and provided a cake and champagne - honestly we didn't want to leave.
