“Quintessential Victorian house in an idyllic setting”
Reviewed 27 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This is a most beautiful house in an ideal setting with some beautiful countryside around for long walks out by the river. The peaceful village has a pub and a small shop - perfect for stocking up or a pre or post dinner drink.

The house is exceptionally clean, well appointed and maintained. The gardens are immaculate and the pool area and setting are fantastic.

The owner was immensely helpful and the process of booking and checking in was very straightforward. A truly lovely place

“A lovely house with lots to do.”
Reviewed 21 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We spent a very happy weekend here. The house is spacious and beautifully furnished and equipped. It was warm and comfortable throughout, with the bonus of an Aga in the kitchen.

There's lots to do for adults and children, with activities and games for indoors and outside.
The gardens are extensive and very well maintained - ideal for sitting with a glass of wine in the evening sun. There are quiet lanes for walking, wonderful views of the Severn Bridge and estuary from the Church on the hill and a cosy village pub with delicious food.

“Fantastic Property”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

By far the best of several properties we have stayed in. All of the rooms are of an excellent standard - and the garden, tennis court and pool are wonderful.
The owners are very welcoming and thoughtful in the way they provide for their guests. Property is well located for exploring into Wales and Forest of Dean as well as Bristol and Cotswolds. Hope we will get back one day !
