  • Jeff's cottage is absolutely perfect! It's a sizeable space and has been beautifully converted, and comes fully kitted out with all the mod cons. It's also in a great spot for exploring the Forest. Highly recommended.

  • We had a very comfortable stay at Jeff's converted barn. He was very communicative and easy going. The cottage is fully equipped and accommodated 5 of us very comfortably when the sofa bed was deployed! Log fire made it extra cosy. The cottage was in a great location, close to many walks including the sculpture trail.

  • Super cottage right on the edge of the forest! This is a cyclist and walkers delight with such easy access into miles of trails and walks.
    The accommodation is very comfortable and the fireplace adds to the coziness of the place. Jeff was very helpful and communicative.

  • We booked Little Briar barn for New Year's Eve and were so cosy. Jeff made sure we had everything we needed and was very accommodating when a last-minute extra guest wanted to come along. The shower is great, heating and hot water works perfectly, the wood burning stove added to the cosiness and we were really warm. The TV was a bonus! The barn is a nice size, roomy enough for a group of 4 friends or a family, but not too big for a couple either. Not a negative, but I thought it would be slightly more isolated than it is - there are houses either side. We found it easily from Jeff's directions and though Parkend is nothing out of the ordinary you are in the village so there are two pubs within a few minutes' walk - and a steam train! We took the Dean Forest Railway to Lydney and back, walked through the woods, and just enjoyed the peace and quiet. Thanks, Jeff!

  • lovely acccommodation and very helpful host, Jeff. Barn is in a small village with 2 pubs but no real shops so it's best to do a big shop and take stuff with you.

  • Loverly peaceful location! Loverly views! Jeff was very helpful! There was no mobile phone signal which was a pity! But Jeff let is use his landline to call family to let them know we had arrived! if you want complete peace? No wifi, no mobile, perfect place to go! ;)
