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

'This hotelis very special.In a peaceful village, it is composed of a group of buildings renovated to a high standard, with attractive and calming modern interiors and a delightful garden with a stream. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the meals imaginative, well presented and tasty, using home-grown or locally sourced ingredients. A very enjoyable and refreshing stay. ' - Jane Bailey - July, 2016
'The service was outstanding. The food was very good. The hotel was pleasingly full for February, bearing in mind its remote location. ' - Gwyn Morgan - February, 2015
'The welcome was warm and genuine, and the stay was comfortable and relaxing. The attractive courtyard, the garden up the hill and the imaginative Japanese-style gardens offered plenty of scope for sitting out of doors. Dinner was a triumph. The wine list was interesting, good value. Breakfast was excellent too. The bedroom was lovely. Really comfortable beds, sumptuous linen, an exceptional hot drinks tray; good lighting: you could sit up in bed and read. There was a slight feeling of the hotel having been designed by a designer, and working the TV apparently required a PhD in electrical engineering. There was unremitting music in the public areas in the afternoon and evening. ' - MC - August, 2013
