  • "A generous and thoughtfully equipped property - it was ideal for our group of 9."

    The setting was beautiful- especially the views from the hot tub. Donna responded quickly to queries. The area is full of activities and attractions in the Forest of Dean. Thank you

  • "A lovely spacious house in a beautiful setting, perfect for our family gathering."

    Everything we needed was provided. Our granddaughters loved the swings and the 4 year old is now a hot tub fan! Watching the lambs in the fields was a favourite activity for everyone. A really fantastic place to stay.

  • "This is truely a fantastic property."

    A beautiful remote location with amazing views, but also within easy reach of places to go and see. The house has everything you could need and is a real home from home with the added bonus of the hot tub for some extra relaxation. We were a party of 6, but even maxed to capacity there would still be plenty of room for everyone to spread out and have some space. Highly recommend.

  • "A great house."

    There were 8 of us staying (3 generations) and the house was perfect for us. It's extremely spacious and with 2 dining rooms, 2 lounges and the pool room, it meant we could have different things going on without disturbing others. The pool table was popular, as was the hot tub. The kitchen was very well equipped and we enjoyed several home cooked family meals. All in all, a great house. One tiny quibble - we couldn't get the radiator in the twin room to work.

  • "What a stunning house in a beautiful location, the views are spectacular."

    The park at the bottom of the garden gave a safe area for the kids, their adventures there have been brillant. Although the big hot tub was out of action the owners hired a smaller one which did the trick and I spent every morning and night relaxing in there again admiring the views. Great to have the owners next door, they gave top tips for visiting different areas. Loads of kitchen ware to help use put in big family meals. We a enjoyed watching & hearing the sheep on the farm. The house big, lots of room again the kids loved running around play hid and seek. Plenty of throws to keep you warm on an evening as you sit in the large front room. The games room although the cues had no nibs it didn't stop our family pool competition with a jiggle of the snooker / pool balls to complete a set for the game. As a family 9 in total this house has been brillant lots of memories has been made.

  • "This is a lovely, spacious house and is extremely well equipped."

    Indoors the rooms are large and well furnished. Outdoors there is lots of room room for the children to play, including an excellent climbing frame/swing (and a pool table in the games room). It is in a marvellous setting, where we could sit out and admire the wide, long views over the Severn river, and the countryside beyond, with just the sound of the birds and the sheep in the fields, but it is not in the back of beyond. Littledean, with pub/restaurants, an excellent fish and chip shop and a convenience store are 1.5 miles away, and it is only a 10 minute drive to Cinderford with its Tesco superstore and butchers shop (selling lamb from Moor Farm). The attractions of the glorious Forest of Dean are all within a 20 minute drive, with lots of walking and cycling for all abilities plus adventures like Going Ape. It is only 25 minutes to historic Gloucester, which also boasts impressive shopping. There are also walks starting right from the back door. We really appreciate owners Donna and Barry looking after us. Donna met us on arrival and gave us a guided tour. After that, they were always accessible for advice, but were in no way intrusive. All in all we had a fantastic holiday, and would thoroughly recommend Moors Farm.

You have to see this place in person, it is amazing, with open fields in the back, beautiful sunrise from the garden, peaceful and very cozy. It is well equipped with essentials and more. Fantastic hot tube in the garden, perfect for a nice evening or even if you fancy sitting in it and enjoying the lovely sunrise. It is not far from the town and local shops. Perfect for a large group. In fact, we are already planning another visit to this lovely cottage soon.

Possible to have an adults' quiet(er) sitting room as well as a more bustling one for children. Nice little touches, such as tree-lights in the garden, coming on automatically in the evening. Advice: keep the entrance gates shut if you don't want sheep poo on the lawn.

  • "Overall very good."

    some minor comments, although the overall cleanliness of the house was good, the small fridge was a little dirty inside and the door shelving was cracked and hence collected dirt. For the price paid we felt this should have been replaced some time ago. The main fridge was reasonably clean but had clearly not been wiped down inside. The rest of the house was fine. Again , a small point but a radio in the kitchen area would have been nice. the location is very idyllic but not very practical to walk to the village.
