Lovely Country Home

  • 4 of 5

Mountain View Lodge is a spacious, unusual and lovely home in the pretty small town of Gloucester. The little touches all helped to make our stay memorable, like the washbasin in the 2nd bedroom, and all the generous breakfast supplies, laid out like a Continental Hotel

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

Could not recommend this property highly enough! It was exactly as described, and suited our needs exactly. The house was extremely clean and the extra touches such as fresh bread, milk and chocolate biscuits were a much appreciated and delightful bonus.

Our entire family loved it and we will be back.

Thank you Olga it was great.

Close to everything

  • 5 of 5

A great find for our party of six. The home was extremely comfortable and well appointed. There were plenty of luxuries such as quality linen and towels, tons of pillows and comfy beds in a scrupulously clean home. Added for our use were cereals, plunger and pod coffee, bread, milk, fruit and even a packet of choc biscuits. The house was roomy with comfy furniture and great outdoor areas. The location was perfect for our needs and close to the shops and cafes. The only things that we found could be a problem for others is the pressure on the bathrooms for 6 -10 people, especially as the toilets were not separate and that the sixth bed was a sofa bed in the living area of the guest house. The downstairs area was quite musty but this would decrease with adequate airing over a stay. Otherwise, all care has been taken to ensure a great experience for guests. and we were quite bowled over by the level of comfort, the cleanliness and the little added extras. Thank you Olga; we hope to be back.
