The Central England / Cotswolds / Gloucestershire region
Gloucestershire is a diverse and beautiful county, from the picturesque Cotswold villages to the majestic beauty of the Forest of Dean, an ancient Forest of 27,000 acres of woodlands. The properties are situated right on the border of Gloucestershire and Herefordshire, giving you two beautiful counties to explore.
The Regency spa town of Cheltenham is 18 miles away, home to the famous Cheltenham Hunt Festival, with the city of Gloucester some 11 miles away, famous for it's Cathedral and restored Victorian docks..
The Forest of Dean / May Hill area
The Forest of Dean - recently voted one of the 7 Wonders of Britain - is a stones throw from Gypsy's Stall & Gypsy's Loft, together with Herefordshire and the Wye Valley, with it's Gorges and stunning scenery beginning approximately 7 miles away at the pretty market town of Ross on Wye.
For visitors looking for beautiful scenery, walking or cycling holidays this area is ideal. There are numerous activities to enjoy in the Forest - from cycling & white water rafting, golf, fishing, clay pigeon shooting, birdwatching, hiking, canoeing and kayaking etc. More information can be obtained from www.visitforestofdean.co.uk.
Just over a 1 mile away at the end of the lane the "Farmers Boy Inn" can be found, recent stars of Channel 4's "Four in a Bed" and home to the famous "Mad About Pies" company. Phil & his team will be pleased to invite you to enjoy their hospitality!

Rural / countryside retreats

Both lodges are very modern and niceley presented throughout. Both have a well equipped kitchenette and living rooms. They are located on a quiet country lane with easy access to footpaths pretty much straight from the accomodation with 2 country pubs located a mile in either direction. If you leave the bedroom window open you're likely to be woken up by the resident cockerell and lambs!
The owner was very nice and welcoming too.
Overall a really great place to stay so would be happy to recommend
Thanks very much for taking the trouble to write a review for us. Really pleased to enjoyed yourselves! Jill & Wayne

We had booked the Gypsy Loft and Stalls due to the fact that it looked in an idyllic setting and also because the owner had been so flexible with dates etc over the period of year in which we were... more

This is a very nice cottage with a lot of character but not in the old sense; It has had a lot of thought put into making a holiday let that works. The layout is very open and the décor is modern and comfortable, the kitchen is fitted out with modern appliances and provide you with everything you need, even down to a cafetiere. It is warm, conformable and very enjoyable. Perfect for a cycling, walking or climbing holiday with plenty of outdoors things to do.
I would certainly recommend this to a friend and will be returning in the future. Thank you for a really nice weekend.
Your comments are much appreciated. It is really good to hear that you will be back as well!
