A great location to explore the Forest of Dean. The accommodation was perfect for our week away.

The location was great for both the forest and the river. There was a lovely babbling brook running along the back of the property and a super garden to sit out in the sunshine. There was a good local store with lots of good provisions close by and the local Fish and Chip shop served good food too. The owners were delightful super people. Would definitely return to The Granary.

An absolutely lovely stay! Had a warm welcome. With the rain and wind this cottage was the perfect, cosy, warm place to retreat back to after a long walk. Had a fantastic week and a wonderful stay in this cottage.

This was my second visit to The Granary cottage in Lydbrook. The owners are lovely, welcoming hosts and are always keen to ensure you have everything you need for a great holiday. The cottage is superb; tastefully decorated, warm and comfortable with everything you could possibly need. The Forest of Dean was ablaze with wonderful Autumn colours. A superb area to visit with lots to do and lovely walks for dogs. I have booked this cottage again for next year.

Had the most wonderful time - beautiful place in lovely surroundings. Perfect for myself and my Border Terrier Berri. Walks right on the doorstep into the beautiful forest. Tasty little treats awaited Berri on our arrival and tea and coffee for me. Just perfect and will definitely return next year!

The Granary was advertised as dog friendly which was why I chose it and the owners have done everything possible to make sure it is. The cottage is superbly equipped with lots of thoughtful extra touches. The owners are friendly and helpful. The area is beautiful with lots of wonderful walks for which the owners have left details.

The Granary was just right for us. It was very clean and comfortable and the owners were lovely. The surrounding area is very beautiful with plenty of dog walking opportunities. Also a very dog friendly area. Sightseeing opportunities were very close such as Simmonds Yat and Ross on Wye. We would recommend this property and area for a wonderful holiday or short break.

This was advertised as dog friendly and the owners couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Everything had been thought of to make sure you had an enjoyable and comfortable holiday.

The hosts at the location were extremely friendly and welcoming.We rented the Granary for the week and could not fault it. Very clean, excellent decoration and equipped with everything you could need for a self catering break. Within easy reach of numerous forest walks and local attractions. Would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing break, mountain biking or walking holiday in a beautiful part of the country.

Christine and Andy were very welcoming, our dog was very spoilt by the biscuit left by Christine ....lovely. Cottage was very cosy, we had full control of the heating so although it says storage heaters, they were ones you could control to required temp. Cottage was very clean. Hot water on hand. Walks from cottage but also lots of walks within 10mins drive. Cycle centre just up the road where you could hire bikes and go from centre on trails. Beechenhurst lodge is also a nice place for walking or cycling with sculptures to see on your way round. Symonds Yat was a favourite place of ours, good for bird watching although a good head for heights needed but a breath taking view at same time. Watch out for speed cameras on A40 Monmouth as I got a speeding ticket on my return to home :-(. But a great chilling holiday.

Warm welcome by hosts and very friendly, they were available to help when needed. The availability of booking in for breakfast and evening meal was an added bonus and all reasonably priced.

The Granary proves to be the ideal location for a holiday in the Forest of Dean/Wye Valley. The owners Christine and Andy were most welcoming to my husband and I and our two dogs - supplying tea and coffee for us and dog treats for 'the boys'. The cottage is very comfortable and had everything we needed. Unlike some holiday lets we have stayed in this really is dog-friendly e.g. laminate and tiled floors throughout. There is a small garden next to the cottage which is shared by all guests and you can also order breakfast and an evening meal (at extra cost) to have in the owners B&B in the adjacent main house. With off road parking directly infront of the accommodation and the whole cottage on one level it is also ideal for anyone with mobility problems. We would definitely return to the property when visiting the area again.
