As we wanted to revisit the Forest of Dean after spending many years caravaning there, we wanted to stay somewhere quiet and peaceful. This fits the bill perfectly. The apartment is spacious and well stocked with everything we wanted. It is within walking distance of the village with its convenience store and two pubs. The gardens are lovely and guests are welcome to wander ,and even have a barbq! One thing to look out for is the daily emergence of bats from the barn outside the front door. A delight every evening at dusk. One drawback is the short steep stairs from the front door to the rest of the apartment, everything else is on one floor. The owners live in another part of the large mansion sized house and made us very welcome.
