"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!"Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-04-15
"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."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-02-24
"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."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-02-24
