The Old Vicarage is in a very quiet location. Lots of space for 8 adults and 5 children. May and Nick were incredibly helpful before our arrival, making sure the rooms were set up exactly as we wanted. They were very friendly and generous hosts, with gifts of their home-produced cider (excellent) and fresh produce from the garden and greenhouse. Lots of outside space to play in, and of course great tourist facilities throughout the Forest of Dean.
A very enjoyable stay, and we'd certainly go again. Thank you May and Nick!
We had an incredible weekend staying at The Old Vicarage. Nick and May were friendly and helpful hosts. All of the bedrooms were lovely and had nice character. There is plenty of space for a large group to stay and the kitchen is well set up for cooking for a big group too. We loved the extra touch of the welcome basket of their home-brewed ciders. The only shame is that we didn’t have to book a proper cider tasting! Would definitely recommend The Old Vicarage to other potential guests.
Wonderful, comfortable, warm and extremely well-equipped accommodation. It has everything you could possibly need - and more - and it was just perfect for our large family reunion. May and Nick have thought of everything to make your stay perfect. Set on the river Severn with beautiful views and lovely walks it is the perfect retreat. We will be returning for future gatherings without a doubt!
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.
