The Experience

This pretty rectory with ancient roots sits in a large, lush garden bursting with flowers, vegetables and fruit – including the famous Blaisdon plum. You’ll find home baked treats like flapjacks, scones or cake in the bedrooms along with fresh garden flowers and a silent mini-fridge. Gleaming bathrooms have fluffy towels, BeeKind soaps and shampoo and there are robes to relax in.

Wake to breakfast in the dining room or drawing room overlooking the garden: local bakery sourdough, eggs from their hens, bacon and sausages from Minsterworth, plus strawberry, rhubarb or gooseberry compote from the garden in season, homemade jams, marmalade and granola, locally roasted coffee from the Forest of Dean. Plan your day in the gorgeous drawing room where you’ll find maps and routes.

Walk up the hill behind you to look at the church. Views from here soar over the Severn and the gentle hills all the way to the spire of Gloucester Cathedral.

The neighbourhood

Wander the garden, meditate or do yoga in the white zen garden room while the birds trill and you hear no cars. From the door you can join the Wysis Way which links with Offa's Dyke. Hire bikes and head to the Forest of Dean, canoe or paddle board on the Wye at Symonds Yat, drive 20 minutes to Puzzlewood, explore 17th-century Westbury Court Gardens, buy goodies or eat at Severn & Wye Smokery.

Local points of interest from Chris & Sue Light

  • We are set in the heart of the countryside with walks from our doorstep. We have the Royal Forest of Dean and the stunning Wye Valley just a 10 minute drive away. You can follow forestry trails, hire bikes or canoes or simply walk to enjoy the area.
  • There are many places of interest to visit nearby including; Puzzlewood, Goodrich Castle, Sculpture trail, craft and artisan shops/workspaces and many have day courses to enjoy. Symmonds Yat is always poplular with our guests.
  • For those who enjoy shopping there is Cheltenham not too far away, or you could venture to Monmouth or Ross on Wye. The city of Gloucester is just 8 miles away and has a stunning cathedral.
  • We are also at the gateway to Wales, so if castles or big views are interested to you, then you will find no shortage within 30-60 minutes.We have a steam railway running through the forest with regular short runs.
  • The Cotswolds are a short drive away and offer sightseeing and shopping aswell as good walks.
  • A little "claim to fame" is that Chris is a relative of Laurie Lee's. If you have ever read Cider with Rosie, then you will know about some of his family, but he can fill you in with a bit more detail during your stay!


Chris & Sue Light

Chris is a local lad and second cousin to Laurie Lee, Sue worked for the Diocese of Southwark for many years. Together they had a hotel in Cheltenham, The Bradley, and they bought this house with the intention of doing B&B. Sue has discovered a passion for gardening which is evident, and also baking and jam-making. Chris cooks superb breakfasts and Sue serves them - they're an excellent team.
