“Fantastic 60th birthday”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2019

This is a wonderful house for a family get together. The games/party room is amazing and so is the pool. Would highly recommend and will hopefully be going again in the future.

“Fabulous family holiday”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2019

Three generations of our family had a wonderful stay. The accommodation was perfect for the 10 of us staying, enough space for us all. The swimming pool was a massive hit and well used every day. The snooker/music room/ bar was also a fabulous space. We had such a warm welcome from Lucy and the house was perfectly clean and very well stocked with everything we needed. Overall a truly wonderful holiday.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review Angela, we are so pleased you and your family had a wonderful time. You are welcome to come back and stay again anytime!

“Family Christmas Break”

Reviewed 19 Jan 2019

We were a family of three generations and all had a wonderful stay at Mireystock. The house was very well equipped and we had no problems at all in cooking a full Christmas dinner. The provision of slip on shoes to travel backwards and forwards to the annex, together with bath robes, slippers and pool towels was a thoughtful touch. We enjoyed spending time in the bar and playing on the full sized snooker table. We also enjoyed walks from the house and were fortunate enough to spot a wild boar in the forest. The house was spotlessly clean and cosy and Lucy was very helpful, both prior, during and after our break. We would have no hesitation in recommending Mireystock, we had a lovely time, thank you.

“Wonderful venue for a family holiday”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2018

9 adults, 2 children and 1 baby enjoyed a brilliant week at this amazing house. The pool was used extensively every day as was the games room. There are plenty of interesting, historical places nearby to visit and lots of lovely walks from the house. We had a lovely warm welcome from Lucie when we arrived and a delicious welcome hamper to start us off. We will be back.

“Perfect house for a special occasion”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2018

The house is a convenient location to explore all the attractions in the Forest of Dean. It is outside the village of Lydbrook, so a car is essential, though the lack of neighbours is good if you want to make lots of noise! The owner is extremely helpful, and the attention to detail with the welcome hamper is fabulous. The house is tastefully furnished, and the annexe is a fabulous venue for a party. The only problem we found was there was no door from party room to annexe bedrooms, so having young children in the group, meant that we couldn't use the room of an evening. Fantastic pool saved a very wet weekend, and kept the little ones amused.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely review, we are so happy you had a nice time. Hope to have you back again soon.
