Guest Reviews

Just returned from a lovely stay at old bakery Cottage. Amazing Cottage in a lovely location. The extra touches such as toiletries and home made cake on arrival was lovely. Katie and Charles were lovely hosts.
Beautiful cottageTracey A Worcestershire
Fabulous two night stay - beautifully decorated cottage - set on wonderful courtyard. The accommodation is light, spacious and incredibly clean. The pottery studio/cafe is amazing and would be a perfect place to visit any time of the year.

We stayed at the House of Bread for two nights B&B. The accommodation is clean, quiet and comfortable and our hosts could not have been nicer. Great breakfast cooked to order. If you are visiting the Forest of Dean this is the place to stay.
