Me and my partner visited for the weekend. The Granary is simply unique. We loved the mezzanine, spa bath and skylights. It was really warm and cosy for the winter nights. The windows all look out over beautiful countryside and is well positioned to be close to the owners but feel secluded and private too. The option of dinner (cooked by owner Mandy) and ready and waiting to heat up upon arrival was delicious and such a great service after a long journey! It was a little hard to find on a dark night but that was all part of the fun! We will definitely be returning.
Thank you so much for writing such a positive review. We are very pleased you enjoyed staying at the Granary and also that you liked your meal. We look forward to welcoming you back again one day.

"Cosy and perfectly located."
A wonderful few days stay in this fantastic cottage. It's super cosy, quaint and spotlessly clean. Perfectly located in the Forest of Dean and close to some fabulous walks in nearby villages just a short drive away. Beautiful view across the forest from the balcony and some great wildlife too! All in all a fantastic trip, highly recommend this place!!

Wat een mooie locatie.
Je zit daar helemaal rustig met prachtige vergezichten. Gezellig huisje en wat een super vriendelijke verhuurders, stonden altijd voor ons klaar, zelfs om s avonds nog even boodschappen voor ons te doen! We hadden er erge moeite om weer te vertrekken.
Wat hebben wij genoten!
It was great to have you stay in the Granary and we are thrilled you had such a good time. Please come and see us again one day.
