This is the first time I have stayed here at The Rock and was very impressed, the scenery as I walked to my room was breathtaking, my bed was very comfortable, slept well, breakfast was excellent, good selection and full English of local produce was enough for the day! Will return again soon. Ideal for walking in the forest and...

A perfect location with wonderful views especially from the garden over rolling countryside. The owners Chris and Lindy were really informative providing suggested walking routes. The quality and quantity of the breakfast was excellent which made walking a hard slog !!! Only thing missing were the wild boar!

Put simply this is just a really nice B&B, and its in a stunning location. Room was amazing and breakfasts were ace. Great stuff. We will be back for another visit sometime soon. Good access to woodland walks from your front door and not too far to the River and Forest of Dean.

Faultless. I needed a single room B&B for one night, somewhere quiet & peaceful, so that I would be well rested for my meeting the next day. And that is precisely what I got. The view was beautiful too. The bed was comfortable, linen clean & fresh, en-suite toilet & shower room and the room had a stable door, allowing...

This was the first time we had booked a dog friendly B & B, we were not disappointed at all. The room was faultless, nearby dog walks a bonus (just across the road).

An excellent b&b. The service was brilliant. Chris & Lindy were so helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Food consistently good. Bedrooms always clean. Plenty of hot water.

We stayed at The Rock for a weekend break and loved everything about it: the location, the room, the views, the breakfast... Lindy & Chris are brilliant hosts; Chris's invaluable knowledge of local hiking routes (accompanied by his extremely helpful maps) was matched by Lindy's expertise in producing exquisite home-made veggie sausages. Both were really welcoming and friendly without being...

We booked two nights accommodation from 16 May 2014 and were so pleased we did. The location for walking, accommodation and service was excellent, and a big thank you to Chris and Lindy for making us feel so welcome. We will definately stay at the Rock again.

This was our second stay, and it was as excellent as before. Our room was clean, spacious, and comfortable with fantastic views. Our hosts Lindy and Chris were friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for you. The breakfast was as awesome as ever. We wouldn't go anywhere else.

We booked the only room available so that we could attend a wedding in Lydney and we certainly hit the jackpot - we had Ruardean and it was fantastic. We have never previously experienced such a superb room in a B & B, fitted with beautiful furniture and a most comfortable king size bed. The bathroom had both a huge...
