We really enjoyed our stay. The cottages was well equipped,and the presence of ample hand soap, washing up liquid, bath gel etc... Was much appreciated. As was the offer of logs for the fire.
Stayed over Christmas (3 couples) and the cottage had everything (and more) that we could have asked for. The communal kitchen / lounge was perfect and actually looked slightly bigger in real life compared to the pictures on the website.
The welcome we received on arrival and the assistance thereafter was great. 11 out of 10!!!!
Had a wonderful stay with family and friends! Great place. Very clean also cosy...
Great, we wanted a relaxing break and that's exactly what we got
We had a lovely stay! Very cosy and did not want to leave by the end!
The surrounding area is beautiful and perfect for walking.
We would love to come back another time!
This is our 3rd time staying at one of Lynda and Geoffs barns, and we hope to return again soon so I guess that says it all. Location and surroundings is prefect.
Lovely little cottage in tranquil surroundings. Perfection.
Lynda and Geoff are extremely friendly and warm hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. They are clearly passionate about their business and their enthusiasm is infectious. We booked the beautiful charming farmhouse for a family celebration of 9 people over 4 nights. The place was a home from home cheered by the log fires. The surrounding area is wonderful peaceful countryside but with easy access to plenty of attractions. We recommend Gloucester Cathedral for beautiful architecture and The Saracens Head Symonds Yat for fabulous location and superb food , beers and welcome. We had 3 small dogs with us and Lynda set up the house perfectly to accommodate them which added so much to our great experience. Thank you Lynda and Geoff.
Our second visit - just as good as the first.
Very stylish and comfortable accommodation - and a great base for family days out.
Lovely place shame about the flies, they did soil the place
Es una apartamento muy bien decorado, muy acogedor y cómodo. Los pequeños detalles son muy acogedores.
Como problemas comentaría que los electrodomésticos son muy ruidosos, y molestan tanto en el comedor como en el salón. Además, el pueblo de Cinderford tiene poca vida, es una lástima pues el mismo apartamento en un pueblo con carácter hubiera hecho una estancia perfecta.
Efficient booking initially and a wonderful cottage that was perfect for our family. Spotlessly clean and facilities as advised. Lovely welcome hamper that was very much appreciated on arrival. I would have no hesitation in recommending to friends and family.

What a special holiday. Thank you so much. You provided everything we needed. The farm house was amazing- There was such a peaceful atmosphere- Thank you again- We all hope to return soon.24-Aug-2014Very helpful and friendly.
We hired the cottage for our honeymoon. We were left alone and there were no interference from guests at other properties.
The welcome hamper was amazing with quality local produce included.
Fantastic holiday with plenty of space for 3 generations. Peaceful setting, beautiful surroundings. Chickens, rabbits and swings loved by our children. Great spot to explore The Forest of Dean and Wye Valley from. Definitely recommend to others.
From the moment we booked to the moment we left we received helpful, friendly and professional information which made our stay lovely and very enjoyable.
The accommodation was to a very high standard and in a beautiful location. The sky at night was an experience of its own - no light pollution!
I would recommend Forest Barn Cottages without reservation.
The service we received from Forest Barn holidays was excellent, Lynda was very prompt and helpful in response to all my questions prior to arrival. No request in relation to access and equipment for my disabled mother was too much trouble which made this stay most reassuring. We were personally welcomed to the property and really made to feel at home. Would highly recommend!! Thank you.
We rented all five cottages for a family reunion. Lynda was very cooperative and considerate.30-Jul-2014We rented all five cottages for a family reunion. Lynda was very cooperative and considerate.The facilities were comprehensive and of the highest standard. The youngsters particularly enjoyed the lawn and children’s equipment in front of The Farmhouse, and the games room.
Great time, great place, great service!
Quiet and peaceful location. Lots of places of interest within easy reach and some good walks. The accommodation was comfortable, clean and well equipped. Lynda and Geoff made us very welcome with a nice basket of goodies upon arrival. You definitely need to book up and enjoy the experience.
Booking process was easy and Lynda was very helpful before our stay. The house was a little hard to find but it was lovely staying away from everything, the only noise was from the sheep! The house itself is beautiful, cleaned to high standards and very well furnished. There was a useful folder with instructions on just about everything you could think of. Rooms were all a decent size with lots of storage and perfect for eight people. Lynda and Geoff were very friendly every time we spoke, on the phone or in person. A lovely stay and I would highly recommend the place and people.
Lovely accommodation, just a few little things like the bathroom door in the en suite not locking/ shutting properly and being recommended to go somewhere that was only open at weekends (there were only weekdays left when I asked), so we turned up and it was shut. However. the garden attached to the cottage was lovely - we sat and had picnics, looking at the beautiful view. The kids loved the play area on the main lawn too. It was beautiful and peaceful, and we would go again.
Lynda was so helpful, kind and cheerful, from my initial enquiry to the farewell on our departure. Orchard Barn was beautiful, catered for our every need, and all the little welcoming touches were so appreciated.
Definitely hope to return in the future, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
