“RUSTIC IDYLL”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

On unlocking the door we were greeted to the sounds of classical music drifting in from the adjoining main house, being played by the talented son of our hostess. Mary, herself, is an obviously accomplished lady who has turned the lower floor of her home into a rustic idyll. From the white, vintage lace bed linen to the generously proportioned toilet, basin and bath, the accomodation has a unique feeling.

Mary worked tirelessly to make sure we were comfortable, happy and well looked after. We told her we planned to make a beef stew in the slow cooker whilst we toured the local Christmas market and she promptly donned her wellies and returned with 3 leeks, freshly harvested from her garden!

On our first morning, Mary arrived at the door with a basket of freshly baked, and still warm rolls, a layer of Welsh cakes and an apply cake. On arrival, we found a lemon drizzle cake, and I'm sure if we'd told her we needed somethjing more she would have produced it; and at the same high standard of everything she provided for us.

In summary, this is simple, homespun accomodation; with impressive views across a valley, and over a waterfall as the river falls down the side of the valley. The aga provides background heat which is supplemented with a fire at the other end of the living room.

A great base for exploring the Forest of Dean. A simple, comfortable property which feels remote but is actually a short walk from a village with shops and pubs. Chickens roam frrely and their eggs are lovely! If you like throwing sticks there's a dog eager to retrieve them. Mary will leave on request delicious meals in a slow cooker for you to eat when you're ready, along with home-grown or local vegetables, local cider, and a pudding if required. And her cakes and bread are excellent. We also enjoyed sitting in the sun on the spacious terrace and looking at the view.
