Good Hotel Guide Review
‘A wonderful find. We had a lovely few days.’ Praise from readers in 2019 for Hari and Colin Fell’s Elizabethan farmhouse-cum-boutique hotel in a Forest of Dean village. Bedrooms, some in converted outbuildings, have neutral decor, beams, many original features. They range from Hatchling to Hen to Cockerel to suites, all supplied with a Nespresso machine, minibar fridge, Bramley toiletries. ‘Steep stairs’ (not for the chicken-hearted) led to a barn bedroom with an ‘arched window looking over the fields where sheep and horses graze’, a small bathroom with a whirlpool bath. Another reader, on a third visit, loved the Byre, ‘a characterful ground-floor junior suite, beautifully fitted out and immaculately clean’, with roll-top bath and monsoon shower. Chef Rob Cox’s modern British dishes use home-grown and local produce. Perhaps ‘really delicious white onion soup with duck egg yolk, beautifully presented plaice, mussels and sea vegetables, delicious pork belly and dark chocolate tart’. Staff are ‘delightful and helpful’. Breakfast’s ‘excellent buffet, soft poached and creamy scrambled eggs’, local apple juices are ‘worth getting up for‘! (Sara Price, Andrew and Moira Kleissner)
