  • "The cottage was hard to find, very comfortable, had everything we could need for a weekend away, shame the pub wasn't open, however, there were lots of things that were broken eg half of the toilet flush in the ensuite didn't work, the handle on the table in living room was broken as was the handle on the strainer."

    But very enjoyable stay will definitely book again.

  • "We really enjoyed staying at Elm lodge."

    The property itself was as shown in the photos, very comfortable and spacious the best property of this type we've stayed in. The property was clean and well presented; the only negative feedback I have is there was some dust and cobwebs around the top of the curtains etc; everything at eye level and below was very clean. Shame pub was closed as I think we'd have just parked the car for the week.... wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

  • "Lovely peaceful stay, Accomodation was clean, tidy and very roomy as others mentioned it lacked extra crockery and towels; one bath towel per guest for a week without a washing machine was not enough and constantly washing crockery to enable a meal."

    No welcome pack so make sure you have essentials tea, milk etc or its a long trip back along the lanes to buy them. These extras would elevate it to 5 star all round.

    Would have been good to have a little instruction on what to do on check out and facilities like rubbish but it was not an issue at all. Was thinking there would be Internet issues but we had none! Overall a good holiday and would recommend.

  • "Three of us enjoyed a very relaxing holiday in Elm Lodge & the surrounding area - beautiful!"

    The lodge is in a very peaceful setting hidden from the Glasshouse Inn that it sits in the grounds of. The pub itself it’s definitely worth a visit.Its like stepping back in time with so much to look at - walls & furniture that have many tales to tell. The food is lovely, offering a modern menu choice.You just need to check on the opening times as they are limited. The lodge was nicely presented, with a great open plan living area. The twin room is on the darker side of the lodge but everywhere else is light & bright. There are picnic benches on the grass banking looking over the fields. From here the sun can be enjoyed all day. The decking area has furniture also, but is shaded with glimmers of sunshine. We were lucky to have had a lovely week of weather. Alison was on hand to rectify an issue that arose & all was well for the rest of our week away. Thank you

    Wildlife galore and stunning with spring flowers. An ideal get away could not fault it. The nearby pub was open 4 days a week and again quiet and excellent food. As one of only 3 lodges on site it felt very private and suited us fine, we drove to Ross to collect groceries one day but otherwise just walked with plenty of pubs a good walk away. 100% happy

    Lovely accommodation, well equipped my only complaint would be the quality of the mattresses on the single beds, I had to sleep with a pillow under my hips as the springs are very close to the surface which made them very uncomfortable

    Great base. The pub was close by, a few minutes walk, and was very welcoming and cosy. Beautiful food! The only issue we had was the wifi. Very hit and miss.

  • "We have always shied away from lodges for some reason, but after staying here, they will definitely be on our list for future."

    Elm Lodge is one of 3 lodges close to the Glasshouse Inn but far enough away to feel secluded. The owner Alison could not have been more welcoming. The lodge itself was very clean and had all the facilities you would need. The rooms are well maintained and have all that you would expect. I would class this as a high class place to stay. What could be better: perhaps more coffee and tea mugs, more cutlery and a few pint glasses. As you can see these are very minor. I would have no qualms about recommending this lodge to anyone.

    Beds so comfy.

The scattered hamlet of Glasshouse lies at the foot of May Hill and is surrounded by ancient woodland. In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Glasshouse boasts a charming village pub, dating back to 1891 which has an excellent reputation for serving fine food and ales in a traditional atmosphere. The Wysis Way runs through the hamlet whilst the Gloucestershire Way and Three Choirs Way are also close by. The thriving village of Mitcheldean with its half-timbered houses and narrow streets is a short drive away, as is Newent in the Vale of Leadon, formerly a Roman settlement offering many attractions including a half-timbered 17th century Market Hall, traditional inns, restaurants, numerous tea rooms and pretty individual shops. The magnificent Royal Forest of Dean boasts many trails which can be enjoyed on foot, bicycle or horseback or why not try your hand at fishing, golf, kayaking or caving all of which can be enjoyed in the area. Try the local wine at the Three Choirs Vineyard or visit the waterfront city of Gloucester with its Roman foundations, Victorian docklands and Norman Cathedral. Visit the historic riverside market towns of Ross-on-Wye or Monmouth with their majestic bridges, take a stroll along the River Wye or enjoy the countryside from a hot air balloon. The stunning Brecon Beacon National Park, Cheltenham, Ledbury and the unspoilt Cotswold villages and towns also make a great day out
