"I can't believe what people are saying!!!!"
We stayed here for a family birthday celebration , with family ageing from 1 to 71 years young. It was booked because of the amount of bedrooms and the garden space for the children to play in. Nowhe… More
We are very concerned and surprised that this review has now appeared 18 months after the stay. It appears to be a delayed reaction for the amount deducted from the returnable deposit to contribute to the cost of the damages in the garden arising from the vandalism carried out by the unsupervised children of the group, witnessed by the deputy manager of the hotel next door. We charged for a broken statue, gardening contractor's remedial work and a contribution to the replacement of the broken fence panels. There was no charge for the broken chair or missing towel. The damages were reported by our gardener and housekeeper and the amount of £101.50 deducted from the returnable deposit (which is administered at our discretion) was agreed by court mediation instigated by Mr.J. We have not been informed of a missing jacket. I saw the group just prior to their departure and the ladies I spoke to were complimentary about the property. We are regularly inspected and are proud of our 4 star rating for the Coach House and we continue to get many good reviews from large family groups.

"Fantastic house, great setting"
Hired the house and cottages recently as a group of 19 for a stag weekend. Everyone was hugely impressed with the house which suited our needs perfectly - a bed for everyone, plenty of communal space (kitchen/conservatory/lounges etc- good to have a few different areas in case people wanted to do different things or just have a change of scenery) and a great outdoor area adding an air of calm and tranquility which provided a much-needed respite from and complement to the standard stag activities. Unfortunately the weather prevented us from utilising the barbeque but the many cooking options in the kitchens meant we were all still comfortably fed. Everyone was suprised by the size of the property - even after seeing the photos on the website you don't appreciate the amount of space available to you until you get there.
The location of the house in the valley was a great change for a group largely comprised of city dwellers and I would happily return as part of a group of family or friends should I get the opportunity.
All questions before our visit were promptly answered and all was done to ensure our needs were fully met, which they were.
Would also like to mention The George pub in St Briavels - well worth the 20 minute walk up hill on the Friday night for some wonderful food and great hospitality in a livel and friendly environment.

"Fabulous house, great location, would highly recommend"
We are a group of 7 families with young children ( all under the age of 7) who like to go away for a long weekend each year. This house was fantastic for our needs. It is in a great location for all that the Forest of Dean has to offer, there are bedrooms galore, all of which were comfortable and of a good standard, and the kitchen in the main house with the "snug" directly off it meant that there was plenty of space to chat with old friends whilst keeping an eye on the children. This is the first house we have stayed in that the kitchen has been well enough equipped for us to easily prepare a meal for 14 adults, which was a welcome change to other rentals we have had in the past. Also, the tables in both the kitchen and conservatory were plenty big enough to have us all sit to dine together. I can't think of a single thing that we could have needed during our stay that was not already thought of. The brook in the back garden made for a great view from the house and a lovely soundtrack for the time we spent outside of an evening.
