    .wow! what a place, great communication with Alison and everything we needed was there, the pictures do not do it justice. Spacious, warm, clean and in a beautiful location really couldn't have asked for anything better and will definitely be booking again :)

    Never mind, the accommodation absolutely made up for it. Everything we could possibly need during our stay in Oak Lodge. Setting of the lodges was beautiful also the surrounding area too.

  • "Oak Lodge is a beautiful, spacious and well-equipped place to stay in a quiet hamlet."

    I stayed for a long weekend with my elderly parents. As everything was on one level and parking right outside it made our stay very easy and enjoyable. The lodge has everything you need, with plenty of space and storage. In fact we thought the photos didn't do it justice and it was much larger than expected! The kitchen and bathrooms are clean, modern and very nicely laid out. Bedrooms very elegant and comfortable with walk in wardrobes and extra bedding available. The gorgeous village pub (Glasshouse Inn) right beside the lodge is owned by the lodge owner, which serves amazing food. We actually had 2 meals there over the weekend because it was so lovely and had a fantastic menu. Lots of fish choice too. The only reason I didn't give Accuracy of listing a 5 star is because Sykes told us there were steps up to the property when I rang to ask about accessibility. When we arrived there were no steps, just a small ramp. We nearly didn't book this lodge because of this misinformation as my mom uses a walker and struggles with steps. But as we were finding it hard to find somewhere she said she'd manage. We were delighted to find there were no steps! I highly recommend this property.

    The only bit to let it down was no instructions for all the appliances We had a really great time

  • "Bedding at the lodge was awful, sheets did not fit, pillows so flat we needed three."

    A toilet roll in each bathroom no extras, no instructions for any appliances no DVDS in all a very badly equipted lodge. Pub next door does an expensive menu inside but the more basic menu you can only eat in the garden some thing I have never found before and I have worked in pubs eating in the garden should be the customers choice. For people that say they are very experienced they don't do it very well

    It was exactly that - peaceful no street lighting. We chilled and did some exploring in the surrounding area - Gloucester cathedral and the forest of dean amongst our favourites.

  • "Well appointed, comfortable and clean lodge in a great location, with beautiful walks on the doorstep."

    We had great weather and so it was nice to be able to sit out on the deck and enjoy the sun. Unfortunately the adjacent pub was not open at the time we visited, but we found an alternative a few minutes drive away. About the only downside was access to the parking space, it was a bit tight to get into and not sure I'd want to try it with a large car.

  • "The lodge was well presented and in a lovely spot, but one thing was missing - information."

    There was no booklet available which detailed local amenities, places of local interest, details of how to use the appliances within the lodge that we are not used to, Various appliances were not working upon our arrival - tv in the bedroom, ( somebody did call but unable to fix and never saw him again) cooker hob ( only one ring in operation) and had to contact owner for details, insuffient towels left for our use during our stay, ( this was rectified after a phone call to the owner) All these things should have been sorted and up and running prior to our arrival. Other than the above we enjoyed our stay in the area.

  • "Great lodge and location, just a bit hilly to walk around the area for me."

    Washing machine would be useful if staying for more than a week. Large kitchen but most cupboards had little in them. Lovely pub and food but closed 3 days a week. Pleased we did not visit in the warmer weather as sleeping with the windows open would not be possible due to the noise of the pub kitchens extractor fan going 24/7.

  • "A very comfortable lodge, sitting outside can be a bit noisy due to the kitchen exhaust fan from the nearby pub."

    Pub food was very good but closed Sunday evening and all day Monday and Tuesday. This was not a problem as plenty of small shops and takeaways at nearby villages. I would have liked a television in the master bedroom but apart from that a very nice stay at an ideal location to explore the Cotswolds, river wye and Glouscester.

  • "We had a good holiday despite niggles with accommodation."

    At first one annoyance is not too bad but as week went on and others were noticed starts to really rattle. The lodge has a lot of blinds which were all very dusty , one ring out of 4 working on hob made challenge cooking , dishwasher needed rinse aid and salt so not always cleaning that well. Some of the issues I could have brought to Alison’s attention at time but for most of week we had no phone signal or internet so communication with anyone including Alison not easy . We were advised internet was area problem and not just at our premises but when wanting to research next days destinations check routes mileage etc very frustrating. We would not choose to re visit

Newent 3 miles; Ross-on-Wye 9 miles; Gloucester 9 miles.

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
