  • "Really enjoyed our stay over new year with our dog."

    Area is nice to explore on foot or drive further afield to see historical sights. Briefly met our hosts who seem nice. The cottage itself is very nice and attached to the main home. Very clean and well presented. The small Xmas tree, lights and Xmas cushions were a lovely touch. Sitting in the conservatory is so peaceful and comfortable. Kitchen has all you need for staying in to cook, just remember to bring any oils, etc. The bed was very comfortable, but for some reason the duvet felt narrow for 2 of us. The bathroom is compact, with everything you need, but the shower lacks a bit in power. NOTE: As much as the steep ladder-like stairs were mentioned on the listing, I didn’t take on board just how steep. My fault, but anyone with mobility issues of any kind (or even fear of heights) should not book this cottage. I was a bit of an effort with my bad back and leg! Also if staying on your own it could be awkward to get any bags up too.

    Cosy property to enjoy the area around or stay indoors with a cup of tea and a book. Don’t mind to stay more days next time.

  • "The cottage is lovely and in a great location."

    I think the stairs going up to the only bedroom should be empathised as unsuitable for a person who is not agile, and described as a 'ladder'. The kitchen and livingroom are very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay, and they are dog friendly too

  • "Great cottage in a great location."

    We loved it - loads of nearby walks in really beautiful countryside. Saw lots of birds even in the back garden! Cottage had nice extras like tea towels, kitchen clothes, tea, coffee, salt pepper and good loo roll. Lovely hosts with friendly cats and a small lovely dog. Worth the drive and the money. Would stay again.

  • "The owners were on site but once we had been shown inside, we were left to enjoy our holiday."

    (We had a holiday last year where the owners were quite intrusive...). The facilities were very good and everything we needed. We were aware of the steep stairs to the bedroom and had to make sure not to drink anything too late to need to come down to the bathroom in the night! Definitely need to be fairly agile to manage them! A relaxing stay in beautiful countryside.

  • "We had a lovely stay beautiful place beautiful views and so peaceful."

    On the down side the Granary needs to be listed under the house name of Brooke House as otherwise you have no way of finding it. The other issue is that in the information about The Granary you need to inform people that the owners have had to install flood defences which means there is quite a drop between the houses drive and the road and if you have a car with low ground clearance it is very difficult to get off the drive we damage the underside of our car everytime we went out.

  • "I would happily have given 4 stars if there had not been issues with the Wifi but I depended on a connection and it was very unreliable."

    I did let the owners know this early on but they were unable to remedy the very intermittent nature of the connection and wifi availability. Otherwise, I did enjoy my stay, the area is lovely, the accommodation clean and comfortable. The bathroom floor might benefit from some resealing around the edges as woodlice are quite prevalent in there at night, they are harmless - it's just about avoiding squishing them!

  • "Absolutely fantastic stay, nothing was too much trouble."

    The furnishings were luxurious from the sofa down to the bed sheets. We felt like children climbing up into our very own tree house when going to bed. We needed nothing. Well the only thing we did need was more time to stay. We will definitely be re booking.

  • "We loved our stay at The Granary, beautiful space with tonnes of natural light."

    Lovely garden for the dog to freely run. Easy parking. The hosts were incredible and have nothing but praises for them. Ideal location for walking out of the door onto local walks and nearby to Forest of Dean and symands yat. Facilities were plentiful and during 2 frosts the building was plenty warm for our 19 month daughter. Ladder to upstairs was unique and added to the experience, I was able to scale whilst carrying my daughter.

Very well equipped cottage, hands-off hosts but there if you need them, and a glorious location.

    This is a super cottage and so peacful, the sunroom lounge is such a lovely qualty and a wonderful place to sit day or night when the stars are amazing. Attached to the owners home you really wouldn't have known it, apart from the friendly welcome on arrival. We had everything we needed, plenty of storage everywhere and space for walking boots, coats etc.The quality of furniture is excellent and the hard floors throughout downstairs means they are nice and clean too. Good location with plenty of places to visit and walk inc nice off road walks from the door. To be super fussy maybe the bathroom could do with a fresh paint and new flooring, especially as the shower & tiles look brand new. Will definately be returning. Good value and I can't imagine why its not 4 ticks unless it's the steps to the bedroom that are knocking it down? but actually we liked these and just added to the charm of the place.
