We’re so pleased you enjoyed your stay....despite it being such a wet end to your trip. Hope you had a good flight home.
Clean comfortable and well laid out
Up on a hill very close to the forest of dean everything you need in a welcome pack frkm owners very quite and peaceful
Comfortable and well equipped
My partner and I enjoyed our stay at jaywood. The owners left us some home baked rocky road and some provisions which was a really nice touch .The apartment is well equipped and comfortable. If you are looking for countryside views and rustic then this isn't the place for you as it's quite suburban, and there's nothing really within easy walking distance (it would be v steep climb up from Lydbrook). However it's is very well located for three beautiful areas and within 10 mins you can get to a large Co op to stock up.
I found David and Catherine's holiday annex to suit our needs and thought it was fairly priced, we explored lots of lovely places nearby in just three days. They were also able to accommodate us at short notice which was appreciated.
Excellent accommodation Brilliant hosts would definitely recommend
Lovely cottage very good shower the cottage was very clean and comfortable the owner was very pleasant and helpfully thank you 😊
Lovely location and very nice apartment
I had a lovely time here with my son. The owners are really friendly and the apartment has everything you need.
Thank you. We’re so pleased you enjoyed your stay.
