  • "The Cider Barn is very peaceful and comfortable."

    It was delightful to see the birds feeding on the nut feeder whilst drinking coffee in bed. The owners were friendly but not obtrusive. Their welcome pack of eggs, milk and bread were all locally sourced and lovely. We would definitely recommend the Cider Barn for a ‘get away from it’ all break.

    Thank you for the lovely positive comments. So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Kim Property Owner

  • "Idyllic setting with birds, gardens and views."

    This tranquillity is especially welcome after negotiating steep, muddy, pot holed single track roads. My city car struggled but we were glad to make it. Good bed and woke up daily to cheery sunshine and bird song.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at The Cider Barn. We are so pleased to hear how much you have enjoyed your stay with us and we hope to welcome you again in the future. Kind regards Manor Cottages. Property Owner

    Luxurious and stocked with everything we needed. Watching the birds on the bird feeder was a delight, and sitting in the courtyard in the evening rounded the day off wonderfully. The cider barn sits in glorious countryside and even has its own pretty grounds to explore. We had mixed weather but it didn’t spoil our time at all. We would highly recommend the cider barn and we look forward to returning.

    It is clean, well furnished and very peaceful. The owners are lovely and genuinely pleased to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Add to this the location which is picturesque and quiet then you are guaranteed a great stay. Only odd thing is that there are no curtains upstairs in the bedroom which does mean waking up with the sun and maybe one thing to address. But, all in all, I had a fantastic week and it is one of those places people would keep coming back to.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback regarding your stay at The Cider Barn. It's always amazing to hear how much guests love the barn and we hope to welcome you again soon. Kind regards Hideaways. Property Owner

    Private patio garden at rear with ample seating, eco and wildlife friendly with a joining private use of stunning wildlife garden and pond for your use. Fresh bread, milk and eggs from the 2 chickens that reside in owners garden were in the cottage on arrival for us along with a welcoming card and flowers. Clean and very well presented with all amenities, including teatowels and Bath towels. Very comfortable bed and we enjoyed filming the woodpeckers eating from the bird feeder outside the bedroom window each morning. Peaceful location and bee hives on owners property where you can buy home made honey. Very friendly couple, nothing is too much trouble but allowed us privacy. We would recommend The Cider Barn without hesitation

    The Cider Barn was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We really appreciated the milk, free-range eggs and lovely bread that were provided for us when we arrived. Lovely as the barn is though, the semi-wild outside space is even better; It’s absolutely beautiful, and so quiet and peaceful. The other thing we really liked was the bird feeder under the eaves. We spent ages watching the birds in the morning! Thank you so much.

  • "Having read previous reviews, our expectations were high."

    The Cider Barn still managed to exceed them. This is a perfect, comfortable, secluded cottage, ideal both for a relaxing getaway, and as a base to explore the lovely Forest of Dean & Wye Valley. The welcome basket of bread, milk, and eggs from their own hens, provided by the owners, was much appreciated. We also highly recommend the honey produced by their bees. The garden with its cherry trees, pond, wild flowers, and two patios is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Watching woodpeckers at the bedroom window every day was a bonus too. All in all, this is the perfect hideaway holiday cottage. We didn't want to leave, and hope to return to the Cider Barn.

    It's that good. Cosy, comfortable, pretty garden and courtyard areas - everything you could hope for in a country cottage holiday. Lovely bedroom with panoramic view, wake up to blue tits and woodpeckers feeding in front of your window. Kim and Gary are friendly property owners, the welcome pack provided on our first day was an indicator that everything has been considered to make our stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible.

There are two little patio gardens, both with table and chairs, plus a locely seat overlooking the pond - so there are lots of options to sit and relax outside. The owners were friendly and helpful. We followed their advice on the Little Dean chippy - delicious fish. We even got to learn a bit about bee keeping.

    Gary & Kim were very friendly & helpful hosts, initially providing a lovely welcome pack of delicious bread, honey (their own) & milk. The accommodation was comfortable & spacious and there was a choice of private, outside space to benefit from the peaceful surroundings. We particularly enjoyed the bird feeders outside the bedroom window, which attracted many birds, including a woodpecker! The only problem was the washbasin in the bathroom, which was fine for hand washing but rather small for anything else. Overall, a great place to stay if you are looking for tranquility & a natural environment. The Forest of Dean area is well worth a visit!
