This was our second visit to the wonderfully homely and hidden away gem that is the Stables. Within an hour you can be in Cirencester, Gloucester and the Brecon Beacons and a great place to return to at the end of the day. The Forest of Dean with all its outdoor attractions and Symonds Yay are on your door step, yet you could be a million miles away from anywhere if you choose to stay in, or out, in the fabulous hot tub overlooking the valley. It's a great balance and we had a great week away. Mandy and David are there only if you need them and value your privacy when you don't.
We had a lovely relaxing and peaceful stay at The Stables,lovely warm welcome and everything we needed to enjoy our stay.Ideally located to explore the Forest of Dean and surrounding area,we would definitely recommend it to friends
We have just arrived back.
What a wonderful stay.
My husband, our children, the dog and myself had a lovely relaxing time.
Very lovely hosts to.
We have already enquirer for our next trip.
We spent 2 nights here and it felt like we were there twice as long due being so relaxed.
Mandy, the host, is wonderful and very laid back, she even left cake and fresh eggs from their own chicken pen for us which was a very nice touch.
The cottage is beautifully presented, cute and homely.
Wi-if was a tiny bit hit & miss but that was being improved/fixed by engineers during our stay. There is free-view tv with hundreds of channels and a DVD player with several dvds for your viewing too. Lots of books and some games were also left by hosts should that be your preference.
The best thing about the stay was the hot-tub which was really nice, to be able to sit out in the garden (in any weather) and listen to some music and look out at the wonderful views. It was the icing on the cake.
A short break with the family to provide some relaxation time for my husband between ongoing treatment. We were very lucky with the weather but it was simply beautiful to sit in the hot tub surrounded by nothing but fields and animals. House had everything we could need and Mandy was extremely helpful and accommodating. Thank you, would definitely recommend.
