Hear what our happy guests have to say about us

Sorry we forgot to sign guest book and leave any comments about our stay at The Cedars. The accommodation was superb, lovely house, so well equipped, ideal for a large family gathering, we all enjoyed our stay immensely and hope to return one day. The location was beautiful and there was so much to do nearby, something for everyone young and old alike, walking , canoeing, mini golf, the secret maze, lazer ops, cycling in Forest of Dean, the ferry across to the symonds Yat East. The Old Court hotel were particularly welcoming for a large party and again is in beautiful settings with a huge outdoor garden area, pity we only tried the place on our last night. Thank you once again for such a memorable stay.

We had a brilliant weekend the house was great fitted us all in beautifully, no complaints from us hope there is none from you. The Portland certainly meets all expectations and was also very comfortable we all felt at home at once, which does of course help with 3 generations being together. We often go away together in our various caravans and tents but after a weekend in this great house with the great cooking and dining facilities we are going to struggle with the limited ability to cook great food on the BBQ’s.

What an amazing part of the country this is in, something for everyone from active teenagers (climbing up to Symonds Yat Rock) to gentle walks along the river for us old ones. A weekend to remember.

The Woolf Party

I was a little worried about staying in a pub (though my son in law was very keen) but I need not have worried. The Anchor lived up to expectations. Great location in the middle of the Forest. Loved being able to walk everywhere and the hot tub and games room were very well used. What a wonderful spot, so much to do and such a good use to put a redundant building to. Facilities top class. Thanks you so much

The Williams Party

What can I say? Just amazing. We’ve been away a lot together to various houses round the country but River Wye Lodge was special. LOVED the bar. Fantastic kitchen and lounge. Huge space everywhere. Bedrooms and showers brilliant. Views, things to do, what a games room. We were happy, mum was happy, kids were happy. Service from your company was first rate. Can’t wait to come back. If we could afford it we’d come for 2 weeks!

The Silcock Party

I have just returned from the weekend spent in Holly Tree House, what a wonderful time all the family have had, I must say what a lovely place it is, every thing was there for us, every body loved the hot tub and the youngsters spent a lovely time on the river whilst us oldies took the ferry across the river and watched. It really was a wonderful weekend, they all want to do it again so I may be back. I left the house in the order I found it in, I even stripped the beds…

The Axworthy Party

I just wanted to email to say what a wonderful time we had at the weekend. Fairlea Grange was perfect for my husbands 60th birthday, incredibly well equipped with great facilities. We had a fantastic birthday meal for 18 and managed to seat everyone in the dining room. The hot tub, sauna and snooker room were all used and certainly added to the experience. I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends or book it again for another family occasion. Please thank Dr Williams for allowing us to arrive early on the Friday it was very helpful to set up before the guests arrived.
