What Past Guests Are Saying
This is a wonderful place to spend a holiday. The accomodation is compact, but has everything you could want. It is clean. very comfortable and well decorated and has those little extras that make you feel at home. We've been twice now and both times found a bottle of wine and shortbreads awaiting our arrival In the summer there was also a bowl of greengages, with damsons and tomatoes and courgettes growing outside the door for us to use. The owners are friendly and helpful, but not intrusive and know the locality well. There is plenty to see and do, walking, birdwatching, wild flowers to find, stately homes and gardens to see, with Gloucester and Worcester within very easy reach. The picture ahows the river, just across the road, to which there is access and a summerhouse key is provided. There are good pubs and places to eat;The Bell has a small farm attached where children (and adults!) can see the animals. There were plenty of boats along the canal, even in spring and the local shop has most things, including bread, milk, newspapers and a small post office. What more could you want!
Cosy retreat, well located for exploring local countryside
Very friendly welcome, lovely biscuits and bottle of wine. The Cider House has been restored and equipped to a high standard. Ideal spot, by the River Severn. Saw the Bore, which although not a big one, it was very impressive to hear the roar of the water moving relentlessly up-stream. If we had come at a warmer time of year, we would certainly have spent a lot of time on the decked area, or in the summerhouse on the riverbank which the owner let us use. Lots of local information. Lovely river and canal walks nearby. We also went up to Newent to the National Bird of Prey Centre - even on a cold rainy February day, this was well worth the trip. Other places we visited - Painswick Gardens, Prinknash Bird and Deer Park, Slimbridge, Gloucester (enjoyed the National Canal Museum). If the the weather had been OK we would have explored the Forest of Dean - a short drive northwest via Gloucester. Maybe next time. We were priveleged to see many species of birds, without having to travel too far - my husband is sure there was a young eagle on the northern bank of the Severn one morning. It was too big to be a Common Buzzard, and it's hard to say what else it could have been, even though Eagles are not usually found in the area. We ate out at a couple of local pubs - reasonable food, and had a lovely breakfast at The Stables Cafe, on the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal at Saul Junction. If you like peace and quiet, with the option of travelling about a bit, The Cider House is the place to stay. Good value, too.
