“Great house for family birthday”
Reviewed 16 September 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The house was well equipped, comfortable and full of character, loved the garden even though we did not use it much. We celebrated a big birthday and visited the puzzle wood and sculpture trail . Loved the piano which our talented little one, who does not have one, played non stop. The host was easy to get hold of, helpful and kind. Would definitely recommend it.

We stayed at the White House for a celebration over a long weekend. The property was easy to find from the A48 and conveniently close (10 minute drive) to Lydney, where extra supplies can be found. The house itself easily accommodated our party of six including four cars. We found it well presented and very comfortable. There is plenty of space and it is only a very short drive to activities in the Forest of Dean. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants a base of operations when spending a few days in the Forest.

A home away from home. Lovely location and a wonderful house.
Loved the gardens and house had everything needed for a great family break.
We met up with friends as there was lots of space whatever the weather.

“Great space for a large group”
Reviewed 16 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Our family party consisted of six adults and three young children and we had a wonderful long weekend in this great house.
Yes, it's a little tired in places but it didn't detract from the overall charm and was clean and very comfortable. It had plenty of all the things you need and we didn't want for anything.
The showers need some attention, the one in the en suite was un useable, either freezing cold or scalding hot and barely enough water coming out of it in the first place. The shower in the family bathroom was better but still needs attention in n my opinion.
The outside space is charming, the garden beautiful and the village setting peaceful with beautiful views. The games room with the table tennis table is great fun!
I would definitely return.

Dear Julie,
I'm delighted you had an enjoyable stay. It is helpful to have your feedback on the showers as we had thought that the problems had been rectified by our plumber. The mains pressure is rather low - an issue we have raised on many occasions with Severn water, with little constructive response. This imposes some limits on the water flow. However, from what you're saying the showers seem to need some further attention and we will be asking our plumber to try to resolve these issues asap.

Kind regards,

Dan
