Roxy and Matt look after you beautifully. She’s the smiley host that greets you; he’s busy cooking delicious meals. They live in one part of the attractive 17th century red-brick building with their young family; the four guest rooms are on the first floor. Bright and airy, all are large, two are huge with free-standing baths for long soaks.
The food here is a focal point and you eat in the informal dining room with views to the Forest of Dean. Breakfast on the full works or something lighter like omelette with smoked haddock and hollandaise. The lunch and dinner menus are short but interesting; perhaps Moroccan lamb in filo pastry paired with a good red wine.
There are plenty of comfy spots to sit – choose a book or a board-game on rainy afternoons or Netflix in the bedrooms. The front garden and lawn at the back are peaceful and look over wooded hills and you can walk into Ross-on-Wye in 30 minutes – a small market town with a selection of independent shops.
