Great accommodation in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation is of a high standard and the owners could not have been more friendly and welcoming. Beautiful gardens with birds and other wildlife. Lovely surroundings and within easy reach of Forest of Dean, Wye Valley, Malvern Hills and other unspoilt countryside. Would definitely visit again.
