“Fantastic place for extended family meetup”
Reviewed 8 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The house is full of character with interesting rooms. There are plenty of outside spaces to enjoy the gardens, including a fit pit.

The owners are friendly and welcoming and are happy to help arrange taxi's to nearby towns if needed.

The cider was excellent and really added to experience.

We stayed comfortably with 4 couples + 3 couples with children. Ages 1 to ~70. Some rooms have stairs and narrow corridors so you may need to check ahead with the owners for wheelchair or elderly access. It did not cause a problem for our group.

“Nick & May have created a slice of heaven”
Reviewed 5 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I cant speak highly enough of Nick & May and the idyll they have created on the Severn Estuary. The rambling and beautifully kept gardens are straight from a fairy tale. The spacious and comfortable rooms all have the most beautiful rooms. The living area are comfortable and many. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, open plan onto a great farmhouse table. Nick and May themselves are the highlight, welcoming, relaxed and fun they are the perfect hosts whether you are staying at the Old Vicarage to relax or have a shindig.
I'll be back as soon as I can to enjoy the wonderful home they have created and are eager to share. Thank you! :)

“Absolutely delightful”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Travelled as a group of 12 and the accommodation was just great. The location on the edge of the Forest Of Dean, overlooking the Severn is wonderful. The bedroom accommodation is lovely (a mix of en-suite rooms and ones without but with good shared facilities), the garden area is delightful and what's great for a large party is the amount of communal space. The main house where 4 of the double rooms are located has a lounge and a quite formal dining room which are yours to use, but we tended instead to base ourselves around the kitchen and dining/living space in the stables block where the other 2 double rooms are. The kitchen is very well stocked and we easily sat 12 around the table there. One evening we carried chairs and tables down to the barbecue area at the bottom of the garden and cooked, ate and drank there until late. We had a ball. And I mustn't fail to mention how friendly, accommodating and helpful May and Nick were. They obviously cared that we had a good time, which we most certainly did. Go, and enjoy.
