The house was comfortable for a big group, roomy, good kitchen well stocked with utensils. Snooker room provided extra amusement. Beautiful setting. Local pub a little walk, good reasonably priced food. Home owner very friendly and helpful- would definitely book again.
Couldn't ask for anything better for a family gathering. Plenty of space for everyone to feel relaxed. The games room was amazing, there was plenty to entertain all ages!
The beds were very comfortable and the nice, big sofas were lovely and cosy, very welcomed after a long walk!
The owners were quick to communicate in the lead up to our stay and were very welcoming on arrival.
The black Swan pub down the road was perfect for a good, home made pub meal, especially the pie!
Property is very spacious and perfect for large groups with children, so many rooms and offered more than we expected.
Location is excellent, with all the Forest of Dean attractions being a 20 to 36 minuts drive.
Owner is very friendly and welcoming and will give you great advise on where to visit and eat.

Lovely big house - better standard, and better equipped than the usual.
Starting with the kitchen - we cooked three dinners for 12 people. There were many more pots and pans than you'll need,a big hob and a few ovens. There is lots and lots of crockery, cutlery and glasses - and they're not shabby hand-me-downs!
The kitchen is a sociable area (where of course we ended up each night) - it leads directly into the huge living room (which leads into a further sitting room).
The Games Room is excellent - it's where the kids spent most of their time - they particularly liked the good quality snooker table.
The owners provided extras, e.g. robes, slippers, proper posh towels and unlimited firewood
With regards to the owner, he's very laid back. He even let us take his dogs for a walk - or his dogs took us for a walk.
The local pub (Black Swan) is very much a locals' pub - but they're very friendly.
Only downside is that the downstairs bedroom gets cold in winter - but apart from that, excellent
