“We had a wonderful three night stay.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We had a lovely visit at Wibdon Barn. It's a superb location and somewhere we had never been before in the UK. The accommodation was spotless with everything we needed for our stay. It is beautifully renovated and has the added bonus of a swimming pool that our 4 and 8 year old girls loved.

“Excellent house, everything you need plus more”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Fantastic host, Sue, gave us a great welcome and showed us around the amazing gardens and how everything worked. The house is a great size (much bigger than the photos make it look) more than enough room for our family and is very well equipped. The swimming pool is brilliant, our three year old absolutely loved it. Location wise it's a great base to explore the Forest of Dean, South Wales and the West Country. A great time had by all, definitely recommended.

“Very warm welcome, superb accommodation, private pool!”
Reviewed 24 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

If you had a wish list for a self-catering holiday Wibdon Barn would certainly fulfil it! Sue and Peter gave our family a genuine warm welcome and showed us around the excellent accommodation. The views from the barn are wonderful, especially if you enjoy them during an evening swim, as we did. The outstanding facilities are all spotlessly clean, new and of a high standard. We could not fault anything. As well as the usual leaflets provided in a cottage, Sue kindly gave us information about local events happening during our stay. We have no hesitation in recommending Wibdon Barn to anyone. Thank you so much for making our holiday so very comfortable and enjoyable.

“Excellent accommodation and wonderful hosts”
Reviewed 4 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We were treated like family by Sue and Peter from the moment we arrived until we left. The accommodation is first class with all the important little things catered for and even a lovely welcome basket to help us settle in. The swimming pool and grounds are beautiful and well maintained. We would thoroughly recommend this property and hope to go back again.

“Charming place - perfect location”
Reviewed 25 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Visiting area for a few days over Whitsun, warm welcome from Sue & Peter to their charming property - an old converted barn. The Barn is spacious, light and comfortable with a great view from the sitting room of the Severn estuary. Had our own private garden and could use owner's swimming pool.
A peaceful setting and perfect to explore the area - Sue and Peter very knowledgeable on locale. Lots still to see, we'll be back in the Autumn and will recommend to all our friends.
