Good Hotel Guide Review

Live life close to the land at Hari and Colin Fell’s ‘refreshing, very special’ hotel, on a one-time farm in the Forest of Dean. The former farmhouse, barn and cider house, ‘renovated to a high standard’, stand in acres of ancient grassland surrounded by fields grazed by sheep and ponies – it’s a landscape best explored, perhaps, under the tutelage of Raoul, the in-house forager, who leads guests in search of wimberries and other wild treats. Closer to home, orchard and potager supply chef Rob Cox’s super-local 20-mile menu of ‘imaginative, well-presented and tasty’ dishes, perhaps ‘excellent’ guineafowl, boulangère potato, or roasted carrots, raisins, lime, nasturtium. (Just leave room for a ‘substantial’ dessert.) Modern bedrooms are ‘attractive and calming’, with original beams, wool blankets and home-made shortbread, perhaps an espresso machine or a roll-top bath. ‘We had one of the smaller rooms, but it was perfectly adequate – well equipped and quiet, with a comfy bed, a good walk-in shower and plenty of storage space.’ In the morning, a ‘very good’ breakfast fuels walks among the wild flowers. (Jane Bailey, Peter Anderson, Josie Mayers)

Guest comments

'The dinners are astoundingly good;. The staff cannot do enough for you; ' - Tessa Stuart - July, 2018
'It is a very special hotel - worth a detour - beautifully renovated in a rustic style with tasty locally sourced organic food. The staff were friendly and helpful and the small tranquil garden was enhanced with a little stream and an abundance of flowers. ' - Jane & Martin Bailey - July, 2018
'A lovely little hotel. In the main building the low beams can be a danger to the head, but it is very comfortable. Our spacious room overlooked the road but it wasn’t a problem.The food has gone up several notches. All a bit nouvelle cuisine but absolutely fine with no suspicion that presentation was taking priority over flavour.Breakfast was good, with decent fruit salad and good fruit compote. ' - Peter Anderson - February, 2018
'A delight. Good first impressions from the pleasant little garden to the warm welcome from reception. The room was lovely, the bathroom magnificent. Dinner in the atmospheric dining room was outstanding. Breakfast equally good. No nasty surprises on the bill. ' - Andrew & Moira Kleissner - January, 2018
