Brilliant value! Place done up to a very very high standard. All good quality fixtures put in for e.g. Induction hob. We've used air bnb before and this was one of the best and was the cheapest. Caroline was lovely, very welcoming, very helpful. Very well equipped place. Loads of privacy. Perfect stay!! 5stars all roundy

Have just returned from a lovely weekend staying here! The place was extremely clean and warm with a beautiful view across to the Forest of Dean. Folders were provided with advice on the best places to visit/ eat and a kitchen stocked with everything we needed (including fresh eggs and bread!). The bed was very comfortable and the surroundings very peaceful! We will definitely be recommending to our friends and family! Thankyou for a wonderful stay, Caroline!

I stayed in Caro's contained barn for two months whilst I carried out a placement half an hour away at a local museum. From the moment I booked to stay in the barn, I knew I had made the right decision as Caro was so helpful and friendly from the word go and couldn't do enough to help with and anything I needed to know. When I arrived at the barn I felt at home as soon as I stepped through the door. Caro has done as wonderful job with the barn, it has all the amenities that one would need and everything works very well and it is so cosy to come home to after a hard days work. She always made kind gestures, inviting me into her place for cup of tea, and even offered me vegetables from here beautiful garden. I was very sad to leave the barn and Caro, overall it was a wonderful experience, thank you so much Caro, I hope to see you again soon!

Absolutely beautiful place to stay, exactly what we were looking for to spend the weekend away from the city. Caroline is a very friendly and welcoming person, it was a pleasure to meet her. The area offers fantastic walks and views, but to be honest Caroline's beautiful garden and fabulous viewing spot on the balcony made it unnecessary to leave anywhere. The best part is that it took us only 2,5h to drive from London. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a countryside stay.

Hi Caroline, thank you so much for our stay in your lovely barn and amazing gardens. It was perfect, thank you for letting us come with Jack, having the balcony to sit on while he slept, watching the beautiful view with a glass of wine was lovely. Thanks again and sorry we didn't get to say goodbye.x

This is a perfect place to get away and get out of the city. Caroline was so lovely and helpful with letting us know what was around to do in the local area. She was a perfect host and she has made a perfect get away.
