"Superb, well furnished, clean & warm accommodation in a good location."

From the minute we booked our stay the owners were extremely helpful, even sent us guidebooks prior to our stay. The lodge has under floor heating, recently furnished with everything of high quality. Fantastic kitchen with huge fridge, oven & 2 microwaves. Top quality bed linen with all 3 room having en suite + a separate toilet downstairs. We visited over new year so weather not suitable for us to take advantage of the garden with it's decking etc. In a lovely location opposite a wood & not far from Symonds Yat. We were 3 mature couples all of us were impressed..Hope to return in the no too distant furutre!

"Fantastic, comfortable and well equipped luxury in an ideal location"

We were really very happy with the high standard of the accommodation and only a few strides from the forest it was very handy for walks and was great to come back to relax in front of the roaring log fire. It was a fantastic 2 weeks and we are really looking forward to returning, hopefully very soon. The only down side was having to go home. :-)

"By far the best place to stay in the Forest of Dean"

Myself and my partner booked Ellis lodge for 7 nights. We obviously didn't need 3 bedrooms but the price was absolutely brilliant and we thought why the hell not, luxury at its best. Every mod cons - under floor heating, automatic lights in the bathrooms, 2 microwaves, biggest comfiest sofa in the world, beautiful equipped kitchen, 2 big flat screen televisions in both the living room and kitchen/diner. As for the shower, you feel like a new woman after having one. We have stayed in 3 other places in the Forest of Dean over the last 3 years and can honestly say this is the BEST accommodation by far. We didn't want to leave and are planning on another visit later on in the year. The owners were VERY friendly and professional, and we had everything we needed and more during our stay. We could go on and on with the positives but feel it should be tried out for yourself to fully appreciate the experience.

"Christmas vacation"

We had a lovely time at Ellis Lodge. It was very clean and had just about everything we could need. Jackie was extremely helpful. The bedrooms were very well appointed and the kitchen/diner was ideal. As we had small children it would have been nice to have had a couple of plastic plates/cups etc... but that it just a small point. The log burner made the living room very cosy. It's a short car ride from Coleford which has all the amenities you need. Monmouth has a lovely Waitrose and M&S simply food. From the house itself there a couple of nice walks to do. All in all it was a great base and we would recommend it to others. A great place to enjoy a Christmas holiday with family

Thank you for a Great Review, Our property manager Jacky is great, knows the area very well and is a mine of local information. We also love the walks to Symonds Yat and Yat Rock, a great walk to King Arthur's Cave, a walk we particularly like is what we call the 4 Rocks walk, the Long Stone, Harkening Rock, The Suck Stone and The Buck Stone. We also like to walk through the forest down to the river Wye and into Monmouth, after something to eat and drink, we some times take the option of a Bus back to Coleford. I will look to document these on the web site. As we say on the web site dinnerware mainly consists of Royal Worcester, Denby and Wedgwood. The redevelopment of Ellis Lodge was focused on providing outstanding facilities for couples (though families are more than welcome (we raised two fantastic children there :¬) )) with the 3 bedroom being doubles with En-Suite and King size beds, though as per your request for a decorated Christmas Tree we would have been happy to supply a few plastic items if you had requested, please feel free to do so when book again. As well as the high quality food chains, the Forest of Dean and area has a wealth of local high quality food producers, including Crooked End Farm for organic produce, the Severn and Wye Smokery, which is not only a great place for fish lovers, also has an amazing selection of locally produced products. If you like cider a must is a visit to the Westerns Cider house at Much Marcle, where as well as tasting some great real ciders, you can tour the cider making facility as well as have a high quality meal in their on site bistro.

"Beautifully renovated house in a beautiful setting."

House provided everything we needed for a relaxing week away from London. Plenty of pubs and things to do in the area aswell! Will definitely be back.
