    “Mark and Susan were great hosts — friendly, organised and accommodating, they made us feel welcomed and very much at home.”

    Going for a family Christmas break, a tree with some decorations was put up and some basic supplies provided, including salmon, wine and butter as well as a basic provision of the essentials. There was plenty of crockery and cutlery as well as cooking utensils but you will need to bring some of your own items (in our case, coffee grinder, scales and a blender) if you're really planning on making yourself at home — for everything else, you won't need to bring anything.

    Going for a family Christmas break, a tree with some decorations was put up and some basic supplies provided, including salmon, wine and butter as well as a basic provision of the essentials. There was plenty of crockery and cutlery as well as cooking utensils but you will need to bring some of your own items (in our case, coffee grinder, scales and a blender) if you're really planning on making yourself at home — for everything else, you won't need to bring anything. Susan rang a couple of nights before to fill us in on the plan which was not only great attention to detail but offered a chance to ask any questions you have before your stay. The underfloor heating was great and the house was heated really well without the radiators having to be used much at all. The wood burning stove in the front room also did a great job at heating that room and making everything feel very cosy. Showers worked well and the roll-top bath in the main bathroom was fantastic. Basic bathroom amenities were provided although they weren't the greatest quality so bring your favourite shampoo etc. if you like the best. Board games and playing cards etc. are provided in the comfy living room and there is a TV with Freeview on the wall. Both living areas are incredibly spacious and homely. The location of the property is remote and on a working dairy farm but this suited us as we wanted to get away from it all. The nearest village which has a church, pub and small shop is a three minute drive or around a 20 minute walk through some fields but you'll need suitable footwear if you're planning on walking. There are pleasant views from the back terrace and I imagine you'll be able to enjoy al fresco summer dining watching the sun set behind the hills in the distance. Country walks are directly accessible from the farm. It's just ten miles from Gloucester making it easy for a supermarket run if you need. It's also only a ten minute drive from the start of the Forest of Dean, 30 minutes from Ross-on-Wye and 30 minutes from the Wye Valley AONB making a great base location for exploring the beauty and attractions of the area. There is also an exquisite national trust garden in closest village which sits on the River Severn. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, although the mattresses weren't the best. The wifi works really well throughout the house and all in all, we felt right at home in the Stone Barn. It makes for a great family getaway or a group holiday. We'd be keen on coming back and staying for longer next time as it exceeded our expectations and is great value.

Brook Farm Barns

Situated on the outskirts of the village of Adsett, on the edge of the Royal Forest of Dean are these two holiday cottages, located on a family-run livestock farm amongst peaceful surroundings. These beautiful cottages have been lovingly created from old farm buildings and each has been individually furnished and decorated, retaining many original features, and offering ideal accommodation to get away from it all and enjoy country living in a beautiful location. Positioned either side of a courtyard, both of these cottages have private outdoor areas, as well as a shared seating area with a communal barbecue area. These two holiday cottages are in a superb holiday location near the Royal Forest of Dean, and are surrounded by many lovely walks and cycle routes, whilst being within walking distance to the village pub, which serves good food and real ale. The village is also home to Westbury Court Garden, a charming 17th century Dutch Water Garden, owned by the National Trust. Enjoy countryside or riverside walks right from the doorstep of these cottages, and the more energetic can try surfing the River Severn's tidal bore or challenge the nearby high wire rope course. The waterfront city of Gloucester, with its Victorian docks, and the riverside towns of the Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth, with their timbered Tudor buildings and excellent pubs, shops and restaurants, all offer superb days out. Return to these charming cottages, where you can sit and watch visiting wildlife and farmyard activity, or stroll through the fields and enjoy wild swimming or peaceful picnics beside Westbury Brook.

About the location

ADSETT

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.
