We came down for half term week and had a really lovely holiday. OK - so the weather was fine and the family that stayed in the other property were very nice, but the accommodation played a big part too. The Old Diary was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, with TVs in each room and wi-fi access (for teenagers obsessed with such things). The surroundings are idyllic - plenty for fishing enthusiasts (try the little streams on the property for lots of wild brown trout). Owners both helpful and friendly. Wider recommendations - Cinderford for a decent Co-op / Papparitos in Cheltenham for fab food at a ridiculously cheap price / local pub in Blaisdon (25 min walk) is nice (mixed views on food though).

About the location
Ross-on-Wye 8.6 miles; Gloucester 15 miles; Cheltenham 22 miles.
Cinderford is set in an elevated position in the Forest of Dean and has views out across the River Severn. With a good range of local amenities including shops, pubs and an open air market and cinema, Cinderford is a lovely base from which to begin your explorations of the area. Close by is the magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering numerous trails that can be explored on foot, bicycle or horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are on offer for the more adventurous, while fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this unspoilt area. Just a short drive away, in the historic waterfront city of Gloucester, you will find Roman foundations, Victorian Docklands and a spectacular Norman Cathedral (whose cloisters were used as a location in the Harry Potter films). Visit the historic market town of Ross-on-Wye, with timbered Tudor houses and excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, in the heart of rural Herefordshire. Cheltenham is just over 20 miles away and is home to the renowned Cheltenham Festival, 4 days of horse jump racing culminating in the Gold Cup, held annually in March at Cheltenham Racecourse. The Severn Estuary, famous for its tidal bore, is a delight for bird watchers, wildlife enthusiasts and bore surfers alike. This unspoilt area has something to offer at any time of the year.
Note: Children must be supervised at all times by the lake.
