The property itself was perfect for myself, my wife, 2 kids and a 2 year Labrador. It was spacious, clean and very well equipped. The table tennis table and dartboard were a great addition. Location wise, it was perfect for our needs. Walks on the doorstep and cycling and canoeing a 5 minute drive away. There are plenty of shops/pubs/restaurants clRead moreose by. I would recommend this property to anyone and wouldn't have to think twice about staying again Hide

Well equipped, great location and very helpful owner. Ground floor bathroom and access to main bedroom via second bedroom, may be an issue for some.

Folly Days Barn is a great base to explore a beautiful landscape. We were able to walk out the front door directly on to footpaths that lead to Symonds Yat and cycling, kayaking, walking further afield were a short drive away. Games room is great for those rainy days you don't want to venture out.
