Aptly named. The view from the property was breathtaking! A friendly welcome. The room was large and comfortable with en suite facilities. As I was competing in a triathlon in town I asked if I could have breakfast earlier than advertised and if I would be able to check out later, allowing me time to come back for a shower. Both requests were accommodated with no problem. Really enjoyed this stay.

Tips:

Lydney has excellent facilities, pubs, restaurants and two supermarkets. I wish I had had time to try some of the local walks and visit Chepstow castle.

Stayed for one night and Helen made us feel most welcome!The room was lovely and spacious. It was the family room and my son loved the fact that although he was in the same room, he had his own part of the room around a corner. There was tea, coffee, biscuits and all you needed. We sat in the garden area in the evening with a few drinks admiring the lovely view. There was plenty of parking opposite the house. Would book again.

The bedroom was very comfortable being warm, coffee/tea making facilities, iron and board, good shower room with toiletries and with the added space for an extra single bed, which is great for a family. The breakfast was cooked to order which was very good. Helen has made a lovely home to home accommodation which we would truly recommend.

Tips:

Plenty of woodland walks close by , a nice walk about 2 miles away at Mallards Pike. Symmonds Yat is a lovely riverside location with walks, boat trips and the chance too paddle your own canoe. Chepstow a lovely market town close by and certainly worth a visit, if your a seasoned walker there is a lovely walk from Tinton Abbey down to Chepstow about 8 miles with wonderful views.

I had a very comfortable stay in a room with the biggest bath that I have ever seen- good for a long relaxing soak after a day of walking/cycling and adventure on one of the Forests trails. The room was spotlessly clean with everything I needed. I enjoyed a healthy breakfast of which there was lots of choice. I had a warm welcome from my host. This B&B is in a beautiful location, views are enviable. I am in awe of the forest every time I visit and am newly surprised at the wonder if nature and the activities on offer.

Make sure that you have just in case waterproofs in preparation for the odd shower. There are many places to eat out in the area and you need some pre-planning to know where they are.

Our room was lovely, great view, very clean and well appointed with lovely touches such as a cork screw and binoculars. The outside terrace would be lovely to sit with a glass of wine and take in the wonderful view (the weather did not allow us to do this!)....a fridge has very thoughtfully been provided for guests. Helen is very friendly and helpful.... and there are leaflets available to assist you to plan activities/places to visit. Breakfast was fantastic. We will definitely return and recommend to others.

Tips:

The Nags Head was very welcoming to us - the food is basic pub food, but tasty and well priced. They are a cash only pub. We enjoyed visiting Clearwell Caves, Symonds Yat Rock for a fantastic view, a river cruise on the Wye with Kingfisher Cruises and walking through the forest.

Great B and B. Don't be put off by the fact that when you pull up it appears as a private house? Its set up for Excellent quality B and B. Nice little touches, lovely and clean. Great Breakfast and a lovely host. Very friendly. Pub in walking distance or Nicer eateries a short drive away. Views from the Bedroom to die for. Give it a go, you won't be disappointed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay. We were made to feel very welcomed. My husband had only one negative and that was due to being in his mid seventies he did find the bed a little hard, as we have just purchased a new mattress he is used to a much softer mattress, he did sleep very well though, perhaps a mattress topper would help people of a more mature age!! We will definitely be booking again, when we travel down to the Forest of Dean.

Tips:

We went out for dinner to La Dolca Vita an Italian restaurant where we had excellent food the wine per glass was quite pricey,perhaps cheaper to buy a bottle, staff very efficient and friendly. We also went to The Miners and the food was superb although there is the noise from the pub clients,again the staff were very friendly and helpful. A trip to Puzzle Wood,Clearwell Caves, and Symonds Yat are a must.

I thought Ken and Paula were very welcoming and and ever effort to make us feel at home. They helpfully lent us a local OS map and Guidebook. We very much enjoyed our stay with them.

Tips:

A good base from which to explore the Forest of Dean and wider area.

We had a lovely stay. We felt the B&B was run professionally but in a friendly manner. We liked our room and its decor. The double bath was great, I did notice some bath salts, but it would have been nice to have had some bubble bath.

Tips:

Go boar hunting! The woods were carpeted with bluebells which was lovely. The Rising Sun Inn was a nice place for a meal- we sat outside by the pond.

Very friendly and professional personalized service. Felt like a good friend visiting. Nice and tasteful furnished rooms. Very good breakfast. Service of a good hotel combined with the friendliness of a B&B. Nice country site not far away from Lydney. Recommended for business travelers wanting to try something different and of course for private travel.

Tips:

Nice pub was appr. 20 minutes walking distance or 4 minutes driving. If you walk please take the torch light when you walk back at night. Food in the pub was ok but not great.

Considering you only have 2 rooms and are cooking breakfast fresh I don't understand why you have to request detailed information the day before, a more informal approach in the morning would have suited us better. Breakfast itself was adequate, but a Bed and breakfast can live or die by it's breakfast more attention to detail, e.g. poached eggs should be properly poached and not steamed in a "poacher"

Good location and we're very pleased with the owners cares. This B&B is located at a key location easily reachable to nice natural beauty. Both Way valley and Dean Vally attractions are near to this place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is ideally situated and is very comfortable. They have added many nice touches in the room. The views across the rolling hills and forest from the Superior room, breakfast room and patio are lovely. Ken and Paula went out of their way to make our stay special but gave us our space as well.

Tips:

The Wye valley and especially Tintern and the Abbey are very scenic. The Angel Inn there does 2 for 1 meals Mon-Thurs. Fantastic deal and meal. 2 miles down river the 365 steps are a tough climb but the view at the top is worthwhile. Kings Tandoori in Lydney serves a delicious, big meal for a good price.

A small bed and breakfast with very friendly owners who made sure we had a great stay. A comprehensive breakfast from cereals and full English with fruit juices and tea and coffee. Superb in room tea making facilities, comfy beds, good hot shower and stunning views.

Tips:

Not right in the action so keen walkers and car owners only. However, I did see a bus stop nearby so that could be an option. Ideal for the Forest Of Dean and 45 minutes from Slimbridge Wildlife. Very tranquil.

Thank you for going the extra mile and photocopying the walk for us (even putting it in a plastic sleeve).

Tips:

We had a great walk on Sunday (the 6 mile one in your guide book, starting at Mallards Pike and round a ridge) and noticed how nice it was to walk on the path as it wasn't muddy; even after all the rain we had. Where we live, the paths become very muddy and slow going in the winter, so it's a good winter destination for walkers.
