Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Clean and spacious but not much outside space. Owner very helpful. Good food at pub nearby. Oct 2011.
  2. Lovely old farmhouse in a convenient location for accessing the Forest of Dean. Great foe our extended family holiday especially as elderly parents needed only to access the ground floor. Sept 2011.
  3. Pleasant stay at the Old Farmhouse. Good welcome from the owner. Property was clean and comfortable. July 2011.
  4. Overall the property was spacious, comfortable and with adequate facilities, however there was little outside space for the children to play (and that was gravel). The oven and the freezer were wear weary. The house being immediately adjacent to the parking area for both the main house and the Old Farm House, there was quite a lot of coming and going. The lady who welcomed us was very pleasant. Overall I would give the OFH 7 out of 10. May 2011.
  5. Great place to stay, whether short break or longer, loads to do. Great pub less than 100 yards away, and shop and chip shop 250 yards. April 2011.
  6. Adequate for a weekend break. Dec 2010.
  7. Very good for a family party with children and our granddaughter’s small dog for a short stay. Oct 2010.
  8. Homely accommodation, perfect for exploring the area. Oct 2010.
  9. Very high standard of accommodation, very clean and comfortable and great location. Aug 2010.
  10. Spacious with 4 double bedrooms. Ideal for family. Aug 2010.
  11. Exactly as stated. June 2010.
  12. This was a lovely really old building with plenty of room for the 8 people it sleeps. Thick walls, good soundproofing, well-furnished. Useful to have a utility room. It was particularly nice being there at lambing time when they were bottle feeding lambs. Having a down stairs bedroom and bathroom were particularly useful. Our daughter and son in law used this separate "suite" for themselves and the baby. The house was very warm and the constant supply of hot water was good. Pub so close! Also village shop. Most useful for our sons who wanted to drink and not drive. In summer or with older children the limited secure outdoor space could have been a problem. Other than that it was perfect. May 2010.
  13. The overall size and character of the property was good, it was homely. April 2010.
  14. We had a great weekend and will return. The only suggestion I would make was that a information pack of walks in the area would be helpful. The owners of the farmhouse were very pleasant and helpful and the accommodation was really a home from home. Feb 2010.
  15. We liked the property for the bedroom accommodation and my son’s enjoyed it for the proximity of the local pub. Jan 2010.
  16. Very comfortable, a very clean and welcoming property, we loved the beams and the doors and the wicker feature in the main bedroom. Nov 2009.
  17. Exactly as it had been described online. The property was in a perfect place and very accessible, clean and spacious with everything we needed inside. Oct 2009.
  18. Clean and tidy, lovely old cottagey feel. Sept 2009.
  19. We had a great time, not being away together before the cottage was a perfect lay out. Aug 2009.
