    We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at Ingleside - the house was clean, comfortable and spacious. We made the most of the barbecue and hot tub and enjoyed the garden area. Would happily come here again and recommend to anyone looking for a stay in the area.

    Plenty of room to eat in or out, BBQ was great. Some lovely areas to sit quietly if wanted. The garden was lovely for sitting in and games. Steve was brilliant out sorting out a couple of small issues that arose. We would happily book this lovely house again and there is so much to do in the area for everyone,

    Large house and garden, ideal for the family and the children.loved it. Good to have the barbecue and hot tub. Table tennis good, could do with some new bats. Had a bit of a problem with the oven and hot plate but the owners did come out to help. There were 2 spindles missing on the stairs which could be a danger to young children! Over all a good choice, would stay again.

    Our whole family enjoyed the facilities available. The beds were very comfortable. We all loved the beautiful garden and we have large garden. If we had had a problem we could contact Mr. Tonks. The house is close to various attractions nearby which is an advantage especially if you have small children. The Forest of Dean has a natural beauty and history. We thoroughly enjoyed our family stay at Ingleside.

  • "This large property was perfect for a weekend get-together with extended family to celebrate a birthday."

    The house was beautiful and had everything we needed including an enormous garden to keep the younger generations happy despite the rain. Mr Tonks was extremely helpful when we had a slight problem with the hot tub and came to our aid despite it being Coronation day; much appreciated ! The good housekeeping bond was also returned very promptly and only small amount withheld for some accidental damage to a piece of furniture which we felt very fair. Local pub short walk away and were happy to cater for a large party. All-in-all, a great stay and would recommend.

  • "Lovely spacious house for the weekend."

    We were 9 adults, 3 children and one infant and there was plenty of room for all of us. The garden was very big and the kids (and adults) enjoyed playing out in the garden even though it was a really chilly weekend… all the running around kept them warm! It was also a really convenient location as we travelled from both the North and South for the weekend and this enabled us to meet in the middle.

    Warm and welcoming, spacious and comfortable in a part of the country that was new to most of us. The owners had everything in place to ensure we had all that we needed to make our holiday live up to all our expectations, and then some! Our comfort and enjoyment was their prime concern and it was clear from the start that nothing was too much trouble. Superbly equipped with space for everyone to relax and do their own thing, Ingleside had everything we needed to chill out indoors and out while the enormous garden and games area provided many hours of family fun. Highly recommended.

    The property is very large with plenty of space for our party of 6 adults and 6 children. The property was clean and the owners were very helpful. Only comment would be that there were no shaver points so our toothbrushes ran out of battery by the end of the week - just take an adapter if you need to! Would definitely stay here again. Its a good central location for the different attractions around the Forest of Dean and a beautiful property.

    Rural setting and well fenced with a huge lawned garden for playing in. Large well equipped kitchen, large lounge seating 12 and two smaller seating areas. Hot tub, table tennis, barbecue, outside tables and seating were great. Well located for holiday activities. Only downside was the bed in the double room was not very comfortable. Ideal for 10, 12 might be a squeeze.

  • "It’s a lovely house in a beautiful garden, we enjoyed our stay."

    Thank you for having us! Some feedback would be: the hot tub could do with some lighting around it and some instructions of how to use it. For a house of this size a big American style fridge would be great. There are 2 x small fridges and 2 x small freezers - it’s unlikely you’d need so much freezer space but we did find we didn’t have enough fridge space. The small twin room is really small - you can’t both be out of bed at once - it’s fine for kids but a squeeze for adults! Otherwise, it’s a well equipped house and we’d recommend! Thanks Steve!

So much space, fresh and airy, and plenty of bathrooms. Comfy beds and a perfect relaxing weekend. Thanks to Mr Tonks and the team, for our last minute queries and responding so quickly.

    No hot water on the first night so grandchildren could not have a bath (not that they minded!). There are electric showers in the other bathrooms, so no problem for the rest of us. Swiftly rectified next day by the owner who lives in the neigbouring property. Loads of places to visit 30 minutes away, Forest of Dean (several different sites), Gloucester and Gloucester Quays, NT Westbury Court Gardens, Slimbridge and many more. Recommend the Lyon Arms in the village where we had a lovely family Sunday roast. All in all a fabulous holiday!

    They should be single rooms. Also I had to pay £500 deposit which has not yet been returned after over two weeks.

    Regrettably the Housekeeping Bond could not be returned until you provided your bank details and was returned within 36 hours of you providing them - I appreciate you acknowledging to Sykes that the pre arrival email did advise that there could be up to a 2 week timescale for return of the bond and thank you for confirming to me by message that it was received by you on the Friday, 14 days after checkout. The bedroom sizes are as shown on the advert pictures and all rooms can accommodate the bed layouts as described on the advert. Thank you for also advising Sykes Cottages on their phone call to you that you thought the property was beautifully done, that you could tell it had been newly decorated and that the kitchen was lovely. I can confirm that the kitchen and the property has been recently redecorated, with most of the house also being newly furnished. I'm glad you enjoyed the new kitchen, decor and quality furnishings.

We loved the outdoor covered area with table tennis and hot tub, the pool table wasn't there but this didn't really affect us.

    The house had been recently redecorated and refreshed in many areas but still had a lot of charm. It was very much like staying at a home, in a family house. The grandchildren especially enjoyed exploring all the many rooms. There were lots of options for bedrooms, bathrooms facilities and reception areas. Unfortunately it rained a lot so we couldn't make use of the huge lawned area for ball games, as hoped for. A small thing is that a set of basic instructions kept in the house, for using the hot tub would be helpful, as we had to keep going out in the rain to check the temperature.

    The facilities are great and well stocked, it is beautifully clean with lots of space inside and outside the house. The owner lives on an adjoining property and was quick to come over and introduce himself and laying down some ground rules around music and noise. The area where the Lazyspa is situated has no lights so it can’t be used of an evening, again this seemed to be to prevent noise. Overall we had a great time away but this property would probably be suited to large families or those wanting a subdued break.

The house had all the equipment / essentials we needed and was spotlessly clean. The garden is amazing, just a shame we couldn’t enjoy it due to the weather. I had read some previous reviews about the heating but we had nothing to worry about, the house was lovely and warm. The owner even went above and beyond when my son left his Xbox behind, he quickly packaged it up and safely returned it to us. I would highly recommend Ingleside as a lovely retreat for a trip to the Forest of Dean.

    There was plenty of space for us all to find a quiet corner when needed, we also enjoyed family meals together at the large dining table as well as evenings watching our favourite television shows in the large comfortable lounge. The kitchen was well equipped and provided everything we needed, the utility room gave us extra fridge and freezer space which came in handy. The outdoor space was lovely for sitting quietly or for ball games and Frisbee, we enjoyed watching the new outside television while having a BBQ, the covered seating area was good for this and meant we could still eat outside even when it was raining. We also enjoyed playing pool and table tennis in the covered games area. All the bedrooms had wardrobes which was good to find, we have stayed in some houses where there were only hooks on the wall! Having four bathroom/shower rooms and an extra toilet was a real bonus, no queues in the morning. The owner is friendly and very helpful, he was on hand to replace the rotary washing line when it was blown over by strong winds, this was replaced within 2 days, safely and very efficiently. The house is in a quiet location but also only a few minutes from main routes for easy access to Gloucester and Ross-on-Wye. There was plenty of space for our cars and we felt they were secure when the gates were closed.

    Everything that might be needed is there and in variable weather conditions the 3 generation family visit found plenty to do. The beds were very comfortable, and the multiple bathrooms and toilets made upstairs easy to cope with. The various lounges gave people the opportunity to have space to themselves or in various size groupings so that you didn't feel on top of each other. The grandchildren enjoyed the outdoor games area, and also running around the large paddock playing boules, kicking a ball and playing with a frisbee. Plenty of birds to watch too - including a family of green woodpeckers. Although hit with a power outage on the first evening (which was across the whole area) and thunderstorms rumbling around at times, we really enjoyed the break. The WiFi had been seriously affected by the storms but the friendly and helpful owner was always on hand and offered alternative solutions. Like a lot of rural locations the phone signal on all mobile networks is variable, but this could be blessing if you want everyone off their phones/social media! Great location, with loads of interesting things to do and places to visit within a 30-40 minute drive. Excellent Co-op store in a local town, Cinderford, and Gloucester is within striking distance and has multiple supermarkets and retail outlets.

The lawn's were cut the day prior to arrival, however as the weather has been warmer recently this could have meant that the grass has grown fairly quickly, they were also cut during the customer's stay.

The area was really nice and we visited the Forest of Dean.couldnt have been better.

  • "Very spacious property, good seating areas for a large group."

    We had 11 people booked in for a weekend (Fri - Sun) in February. Never felt cramped, even managed a BBQ outside, where there was a covered seating area to sit in. Out of the way place, on single track road, but close enough to local amenities, so was not inconvenient. Would highly recommend, will be staying again in the future hopefully!

  • "Hot Tub was great."

    Overall standard of property was very high. The only advice we would offer in terms of improvement is that a manual to explain the facilities, amenities and surrounding area would help to quickly settle in.

  • "While it is not listed and so was not expected the property would be perfect if it had internet."

    Also sky tv was advertised but we were told it did not work or the signal was patchy.

About the location


Forest of Dean 2 miles; Gloucester 9 miles; Ross-on-Wye 13 miles.

The little hamlet of Adsett is very well situated, just one mile from the village of Westbury-on-Severn offering a Post Office, a traditional pub serving real ale and good food and the National Trust property of Westbury Court Garden, a 17th century Dutch Water Garden. Also close by is the magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering numerous trails that can be explored on foot, bicycle or horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are on offer for the more adventurous, whilst fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this unspoilt area. Just a short drive away, in the historic waterfront city of Gloucester, you will find Roman foundations, Victorian Docklands and a spectacular Norman Cathedral (whose cloisters were used as a location in the Harry Potter films). A little further afield, visit the historic market town of Ross-on-Wye, with timbered Tudor houses and excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, in the heart of rural Herefordshire. The Severn Estuary, famous for its tidal bore, is a delight for bird watchers, wildlife enthusiasts and bore surfers alike. This unspoilt area has something to offer at any time of the year.

Note: This owner requires a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £500. Your bond will be refunded to you within 2 weeks of your departure providing the property is left in an acceptable condition. Details of how to pay this will be provided 6 weeks prior to your stay.
