Fantastic accommodation near the Forest of Dean

We stayed at ash lodge for three nights and wished we had booked just a bit longer. The accommodation is excellent, contemporary, very airy and spacious with a well equipped kitchen, en suite shower room and further bathroom. The provision of a welcome pack with breakfast essentials was a nice touch, as were the fresh flowers and fruit. The location is on the outskirts of the Forest of Dean, a few miles from Ross on wye, and whilst out in the sticks, with the pub a mere 200m walk away a local meal out was an easy option. Despite being close to the pub, the location was very peaceful. The owners are very helpful and have really put together a very high standard of accommodation. The towels were huge, soft, fluffy and plentiful and the wifi exceptionally good, a pre-requisite in our family with two teenagers. I would not hesitate to recommend glasshouse lodges, they are identically kitted out and decorated so there is little to choose between the three other than top, middle and bottom. Note: children are accepted over 14 years of age only, if yours are borderline contact them directly to discuss.

The best lodge we have stayed in

It was stated quite firmly that this is an adult only site. On enquiring, it was ok for our 16 year old Grandson to come with us and stay to help us set up camp and the 5 year old could visit - I emphasised that he was well behaved. The site was very quiet but the lodge was very well furnished and lots of nice touches with some food and storecupboard ingredients were there. I even taught my 16 yr old grandson to play chess with the board there - and we had free wifi... The Owners were very helpful. I find the comments regarding the Pub annoying. The Landlord/owner is not anti children, indeed, we met his Grandchildren who were very well behaved and friendly. I am in a wheelchair/scooter and not ideal for me to get about but I was aware of that before we went. (I am not one of those who feel I need 100% access to everything). The patio area was a sun trap and there were plenty of places to get to in the car. Feel it would be great if you like walking. Plenty of farm shops nearby. Our Family stayed nearby and we met up in the Forest of Dean and many local beauty spots. We will be back.
