"Best holiday we've ever had!"
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Granary after spotting it on trip advisor whilst looking for somewhere in the Forest of Dean and I am so happy we stayed here. I was amazed by how beautiful the surroundings where on the drive up to the Granary and we fell in love with the Granary itself, David welcomed us upon our arrival and both him and Mandy were there whenever we needed them, whether it was for tomato sauce for our breakfasts as we forgot ours or a pub recommendation! I cannot fault our stay at the Granary, we will definitely return at some point in the future! :)
Thank you so much for your positive review. We are very happy that you had such a good time and would love to welcome you back in the future.

"Super relaxing and extremely pretty"
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time away for his birthday weekend. The cottage is really nicely done, we loved the bed area and the balcony and the spa bath is a real treat after a long day. The hosts were wonderful, we ordered dinner for when we got there which was delicious and they provided us with lots of information about nice pubs and places to visit. We will be returning!
Thank you so much for your positive comments. We are very pleased you had such a good time. We would love to see you here again in the future.

"Lovely little hideaway in the country"
A cosy cottage with truly individual character. The decked balcony provided stunning views across the fields and, despite its size, The Granary has a full size spa bath to relax in after many a forest walk. The owners live next door but didn't bother us at all unless we needed them. They even gave us fresh eggs from the resident chickens.
Our springer spaniel was also welcome, which for us was a real bonus.
Thank you very much for your very positive comments. We are very pleased you had a good time, and saw the forest in all its glory. We look forward to welcoming you back sometime in the future.

Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by Many and her friendly cat and shown to the warm cosy cottage which was a great welcome on such a cold and rainy day after a long drive from London. The area is very peaceful and serene with lovely views of the fields and hills. David and Mandy Lloyd were very helpful with answering any questions we had with regards to directions and things to do in the area. We'll definitely be back!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We are delighted you felt welcome and were able to relax before returning to work. We would be happy for you to come again; you would qualify for a 'returners discount' if you did.

"Peaceful and Unique"
We stayed at the The Granary for a long birthday weekend and were both very taken with the charming building. Beautiful surroundings which we were grateful to be able to take in fully once the sun came out. Very unique cottage / annex, but well presented and with a cracking balcony to enjoy the view.
Lovely, welcoming and really helpful hosts made for a very enjoyable weekend all round.
Thank you for taking the time to review the Granary. We are delighted you had such a good time.

"A wonderful nugget in the midst of a forest.."
I stayed at the Granary for four days, really enjoyed the quaint cottage and its surrounding landscapes. Cosy and looked after me well during the storms. Hosts are wonderful, friendly and not intrusive at all. Pet friendly and everything well thought out in a beautiful part of the forest. Can't wait to return when the roses are blooming.
Thank you for taking the time to review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and wish to return.
