We loved being able to relax in this fantastic cottage with it's amazing hot tub. Enjoying the amazing view from the terrace at Paddock House and being made to feel so welcome by the owner.

The hot tub is to die for. The hosts could not have been more helpful and inviting. We would definitely recommend this cottage.

The hot tub was certainly a bonus. The privacy provided by the landlords was also a big plus. The layout of the property and mod cons made the property very comfortable whilst still retaining it's character.

We had a fantastic time at Patrick House, loved the hot tub and how modern and up to date everything was. Over the three days we went on plenty of walks and slept really really well!

A considerable amount of care, thought and love had clearly gone into the conversion into holiday cottages. The high standard was so evident from the minute I had crossed the threshold - from the choice of pictures on the walls to the quality of the curtaining. So much so that within minutes of arriving I had arranged to stay an extra few nights. Now, after being here a week, with just 2 more days to go, I have not been disappointed. Would I book again? Oh yes. Most definitely. My 2 little dogs enjoyed their stay as well. They were made very welcome. Attention to little details, I couldn't fault them. The bed was so comfortable, even accounting for the chronic pain I live with as well as the pain from the arthritis I had the best nights' sleep I have had for years.

The outside area with hot tub was beautiful and very private. Th hosts were lovely. The upside down house a great plan. We will definitely be recommending and returning.

Superb luxury cottage with excellent facilities. Extremely quiet location within easy reach of all sights. The owners couldn't have done more to help us have an enjoyable and relaxing holiday.

We had a great relaxing break here. The accommodation was excellent with great facilities, and came with some lovely touches. The hot tub was amazing in the evening with fabulous views from the terrace.

Paddock House is an excellent place to stay to explore the Forest of Dean. The owners have done an excellent job of converting their barn and they go beyond expectations for a self catering holiday.

We absolutely loved our time at Paddock House. The hosts were lovely and when we arrived we had basic supplies and fresh local eggs waiting. The cottage is upside down, but that was great because we had our dog, so letting him out for a wee from the bedroom was quite helpful. The lounge kitchen upstairs was perfect in size, there was a TV if wanted, but we mainly used our radio. The local walks were nice but muddy at that time of year. The walk right out of the back of the property is very steep so my partner wasn't able due to a recent surgery. But there were a few flat walks a short walk away near go ape. The walk into the village pub was fine, about 15 mins there and 20 back. The food at the pub was nice and the locals lovely. The main feature was the hot tub, with views over green rolling hills and plastic glasses provided for our champers. Although the main house is right behind you, it doesn't feel overlooked and is very private. We loved our stay and hope to be back and enter th cottage next door too if possible with friends. If you're thinking of booking, get in there quick, it's in high demand.
