“Arriving at "The Stables" we were very pleasantly surprised by the great property, clean, lovely shower rooms and great spacious kitchen diner with beautiful views of the river.”
Yvonne, the owner was very accommodating and welcoming. On arrival we found delicious muffins and fresh milk from the farm left for us to enjoy. This is a great location for the local sites such as the Secret Forest, Clearwell caves and Puzzle Wood only a 20 minute drive away. We had a great time and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves too.
“Thanks very much for all the personal touches - cakes, milk, flowers.”
It's a lovely holiday cottage, very homely and comfortable. We were lucky to film boars and deer in the Forest - this made our week!
“We had an absolutely lovely time; The Stables was so welcoming & homely.”
“Lovely break in a fantastic cottage.”
Plenty to do and see in the area including wild boar at Wenchford enclosure in the Forest. Brilliant!
“The cottage was beautiful as well as the surroundings.”
It was such a lovely getaway with a really wonderful tour around the farm. Fruit and cake on arrival was extremely thoughtful and the cottage is very well equipped. Thank you very much. Loved it!
“Had a wonderful week in a lovely clean cosy cottage.”
Great weather, loved the view of the River Severn from the bedroom window.
“So nice, we've been twice!”
Chose this for our honeymoon break, because it is so beautiful and was peaceful on our last visit. Enjoyed our time here again very much. Thanks too for the 'extras' - flowers were lovely and scones were delicious.
“Thanks for this beautiful cottage.”
It is so comfortable, spacious and gracious and the location is breathtaking.
“Beautifully renovated, fully equipped spacious cottage.”
Clean and comfortable with some lovely touches by the owners, who couldn't have been kinder. Stunning views and a tranquil atmosphere. Highly recommended.
“We've had a wonderful, relaxing holiday here and enjoyed various walks in the forest.”
The Stables is a great find and we hope to stay here again.
“We returned today from a fantastic stay at The Stables.”
My husband was working locally so we booked to stay as a family. There is so much to do in the local area that the weekend just flew by. Yvonne was a fantastic host and even showed myself and my children 2 & 3 year olds around the farm including the milking barn which was fascinating. We all loved it. The Stables is a beautiful cottage with ample off road parking, fantastically clean, gorgeous views and a lovely enclosed garden. The beds were very comfy and it was ideal having both upstairs and downstairs shower rooms. The kitchen is well equipped & has everything you could require & more. I cooked Easter dinner here and wasn't missing a thing! After staying in s/c accommodation quite often I packed everything I could think of however, the cottage is that well equipped I barely needed anything! I would highly recommend staying here and not just for the fresh milk & cakes on arrival. Thank you also to Yvonne for the children's Easter chocolates. We hope to come and stay with you again soon.
“Absolutely idyllic - lovely cottage & countryside.”
“Everything has been fantastic.”
The cottage is amazing, the scenery beautiful, such a relaxing time and top notch hospitality. Symonds Yat was better than I had imagined and the zipwire near Chepstow is a must for the brave. We hope to come again.
“The muffins went down a treat on our first walk!”
We've had a great week of weather, walking every day - Lovely coming back to such a perfect cottage! Thank you!
“Perfect in every way.”
Thank you for a very enjoyable stay. The little touches like the fresh milk and scones are super.
“A lovely, well appointed cottage in a good location.”
And a very friendly welcome! Thank you.
“Upon entering the Stables we were greeted with home made scones fresh milk and fruit and the facilities and cleanliness of the accommodation were first class.”
Everything you needed was to hand. An ideal location for exploring the Forest of Dean part of Wales and Gloucester. We intend returning.
“In easy reach of the Forest of Dean, we found this cottage a home from home.”
Both comfortable and well equipped, with off road parking it was quiet with wonderful views over the Severn Valley. All rooms were a good size with plenty of storage. The owners were on hand, very welcoming and pleasant, but we felt private and carefree in the cottage.
“The Stables is a wonderful place to stay.”
It is pleasing to say that the location, accommodation and professionalism of the owners is first class. Importantly, The Stables is also within easy reach of many amenities. For example, supermarkets, leisure and extensive activity based pursuits in the Forest of Dean. My family had a very memorable and enjoyable stay here... I heartily recommend it!
“Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing break with such kind hospitality.”
The robot milking machines we saw were absolutely amazing!.

About the location
Gloucester 16 miles; Monmouth 16 miles; Ross-on-Wye 17 miles.
The ancient village of Blakeney lies on the southeast edge of the Royal Forest of Dean and was once a site of a Roman Villa dating back to 75AD. Equidistant to Gloucester and Monmouth, the village boasts many 16th and 17th century buildings, with a charming 16th century coaching inn, and also offers a good selection of amenities including a fish and chip shop, village store and Post Office, as well as numerous walks and cycle routes. The magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, boasts numerous trails that can be explored on foot, by bike or horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course can be enjoyed by the more adventurous, whilst fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities available in this unspoilt area. The eerie caverns and ancient caves of Clearwell are close by, as are the Gloucestershire Way and Offa's Dyke Path for wonderful walks. Close by, Symonds Yat boasts natural scenery and straddles the beautiful River Wye with its magnificent limestone rock, popular with climbers, and well known for its viewpoint. Visit the historic town of Monmouth, which offers a fusion of elegant Georgian mansions and Victorian courtyards, or the lovely town of Ross-on-Wye with its timbered Tudor houses and delightful riverside walks, both home to excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. The unspoilt Malvern Hills, Brecon Beacon National Park and Black Mountains, as well as lovely Cotswold towns and villages are just a little further afield.
