Great place, we felt incredibly relaxed and stress free when we left, leaving us ready to go back and take on the NHS again! It was our first little holiday with our dog. The place is looked after to a very high standard with pride and we were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived with treats for us and our doggy. 

The place is within short car journeys of all the main attractions of the Forest of Dean. The accommodation itself is cosy, modern, homely and has a nice little yard outside where you can enjoy the sun and sunset with a glass of wine. There are many nice touches inside that helps you feel both on holiday and at home. This is truly a place that you can enjoy all year around and no matter the season.

Flowers on the table, fresh cup cakes, milk and a bottle of cool wine when we arrived. Last time we received such a welcome, we were on our honeymoon in Hong Kong and Bali. A little gem created and looked after by a superb owner, highly recommend it.

Thanks Tracey, we had a fantastic stay. Pluto says thanks as well :-)  Ricky, Nicola and Pluto 

Thank you for your lovely review. I am delighted you had such a great time and it was a pleasure meeting Pluto - he's a real cutie! I am very honoured you chose the Forest Coach House for his first holiday and hope to see him back again one day (whatever the season!)

"We had an excellent long weekend at the Forest Coach House and we would say that it is probably the best equipped accommodation that we have stayed in . The owners were helpful , but then left us to the weekend without any interference - adding that we should let them know if there were any queries "

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am delighted you enjoyed yourselves and that you found everything you needed for a comfortable stay. I do provide lots of information about the local area and always ensure that I'm available should guests need help with anything which some people find useful if they're unfamiliar with the area, otherwise guests in the Forest Coach House are given complete privacy for a peaceful, relaxing and uninterrupted break!

I just wanted to say a huge thankyou for making my Mum and Step-Dad and Bess feel so welcome at the Forest Coach House! They really did have a lovely time and thought you had put so much thought and love into what you do! Thanks for the lovely touches they really did appreciate it and so did I!! Hope they were well behaved! Im sure they will be visiting you again and they have already been recommending it to their neighbours etc... 

Many thanks and maybe/hopefully we will see you sometime soon too! 
best wishes 

It was a pleasure to meet them Joanne, especially Bess the Westie - she's a delight!  Thank you for organising their birthday treat at the Forest Coach House, it's lovley to think that we've helped with some special birthday memories.

Just returned from a fabulous weekend at the coach house we were sad to leave! So was the dog. 
I booked this as a little surprise for my mom’s birthday and Tracey couldn’t do enough. She decorated the house for us; there were fresh flowers, wine, homemade mince pies and fresh milk in the fridge. I’ve never felt so welcomed or so comfortable. The heating was on when we arrived the house is beautifully furnished with everything you could wish for even linen was provided we really felt at home.
The location is absolutely ideal just 20 minutes or so to Gloucester, right on the edge of the forest of dean and a two minute walk to nice local pubs and shops. Close to so many local activities such as walks, kayaking, mountain biking, caving and more importantly shopping!
Thank you so much for all your thought and effort that went into this and we hope to see you soon

It was great meeting you all Becky and Casper is a little charmer!  You will be made very welcome when you bring him back to see me again! 

 "We had a really enjoyable week staying at the Coach House. Accommodation is truly superb - comfortable, homely and well equipped with everything you need, plus a beautiful view of the surrounding forest from the lounge window.  A lovely welcome with cakes, wine and fresh roses on the kitchen table.  We even had some fresh runner beans from the garden to add to our evening meal one night!  The two resident gorgeous spaniels (Mum and daughter) were very friendly too and didn't seem to mind 'their place' being invaded by a strange dog that was given one of their toys to play with as well.  This is a good location with easy access to all the main attractions and beauty spots and made a good base for my hobby of visiting the many interesting and historic churches and villages in the area.  Many thanks for a super week". Janice, Brian and Reuben the collie, Essex We're so glad you had a wonderful week and found the location really useful for your daytrips.  Reuben is a delight and we hope to see you all again soon.

"Loved the house - particularly the decor and Mockie & Ronnie - very tempted to take them with us. Thank you for thinking of everything we could need and for making us feel so welcome - the cakes, flowers and wine were a lovely touch". The Taylor family, Reading It was a pleasure to welcome you all to stay and we're pleased you liked the decor, Vince has worked really hard on the Forest Coach House. 

"The hospitality of Tracey, Vince and the boys has been amazing. The thoughtfulness has made us feel very special.  The Coach House is faultless, we couldn't have wished for anything more. Thank you all very much, we hope to return again very soon". John, Jules and Molly, Lowestoft, Suffolk It was a real pleasure welcoming you both and little Molly too.  Our 2 dogs had such fun racing around with her!  We do hope you'll come back soon o enjoy another breathtaking sunset! 

"The Forest Coach House is an amazing place to stay.  A beautiful home away from home.  The lovely cakes and wine on arrival was a beautiful gesture and made us feel very welcome.  Thank you very much". Grant and Stacy, Ravenswood, Western Australia Thanks for choosing the Forest Coach House to stay.  It was lovely knowing that guests so far from home - felt so at home!  Your choccies and flowers were such a lovely surprise, thank you. Tracey x.

"Tracey and Vince have done an amazing job transforming the Forest Coach House, they have thought of everything!  It's a very comfortable place to stay for families and couples, with or without pets. There is so much to see and do and the scenery is just fantastic. We have had a lovley time here. Rolo's had a whale of a time; a very relaxing and chilled out long weekend. Many thanks Tracey,Vince and family. We look forward to returning again". Tracey, Jason & Rolo, Bedfordshire Thanks for the fun weekend.  Rolo settled in so nicely and loved playing with our 2 dogs - they seemed a bit lost after he'd gone home!

"We simply can't fault the accommodation at all, lovely friendly hosts that live discreetly onsite. On arrival we had complimentary cakes and wine waiting for us, plus some thoughtfully age-appropriate toys for our daughter to play with during her stay. The accommodation was immaculate, all very new and beautifully furnished. Although Cinderford itself hasn't a lot to offer in the way of shops or restaurants, it overlooks the Forest of Dean, which is outstandingly beautiful, and there is no shortage of great places to go, railways, caves, river trips along the Wye and of course its a great place for hiking and mountain-biking. Would highly recommended, in fact my parents are looking at booking next year!"  Chris, Emma & Isobel, Essex Our very first guests!! Many thanks for taking the time to give us such a positive review. It was our pleasure to host such a lovely family and we are very pleased you enjoyed the Forest of Dean, there's so much to discover in and around the area no matter what the season. We're glad you enjoyed the personal touches (we do aim to help our guests feel at home). Thank you for choosing the Forest Coach House. Very best wishes, Tracey.
