    This property is fine, but it could be great with a bit more effort/investment from the owners. The building itself is cute and full of character, and it's very cosy inside, but the decor, furnishings and equipment are tired and outdated. A few of specific issues for us: - The BBQ was a bit rubbish so we ended up buying disposable ones from the supermarket - The initial advertisement states the pool is available all year round (which is one of the reasons why I chose it) but that turned out not to be the case once we proceeded further with the booking, which we were bit disappointed with - One shower in a property advertised for 8 people is a bit ridiculous, especially with the shower being downstairs - another shower in the upstairs bathroom would make a huge difference - It's also a bit weird and inconvenient that the fridge gets locked in the bathroom if you need to shut the door - surely another door could be put in!? - We had a few issues with the log burner - the logs we had were damp and we had trouble getting the fire going, which left us a bit chilly on the first night - One of the plug sockets in the living room was a bit damaged, and looked a little unsafe More positively - The location is great, the garden and surrounding area is very beautiful - The property is cosy with a lot of character - The owner was very friendly and helpful on the phone, and the system for exchanging keys is handy and efficient - Plenty of room for parking outside Overall, it was one of the cheaper options in great location, and did the job for us, particularly as we were spending most of our time outside exploring the surrounding area. The property served as more of a weekend base than a home, and we were a young, un-fussy group. I can imagine, though, that this property wouldn't be great for an older group, longer trip or anyone who is a bit high maintenance.

    A group of us stayed at The Old Granary for the weekend. It fitted our needs well as most of the bedrooms were twins and there was sufficient parking for several cars. The log burner was lovely and more than made up for the ancient storage heaters downstairs. The electric radiators upstairs were possible not the most energy efficient but did the job of keeping the bedrooms warm on a chilly weekend. The beds were very comfortable so we all slept well. Only negatives: the seating in the living room could be improved - one of the two settees was *very* low which could be an issue for some people, and the two wicker chairs were more suitable for sitting than lounging! The dining table seats 6 comfortably but for 7/8 people there is not much legroom. Finally, although there are two bathrooms there is only one shower which for a group of adults rather than a family meant that getting ready in the morning was a somewhat protracted business! Just a shower attachment over the bath would improve this. That being said, we would stay again as these are all only niggles rather than major problems.

    Was a lovely cottage but in need of updating especially the bathroom and shower room. The cleanliness was not great but the owner very helpful.

    A relaxing cottage, very good for a family gathering. Furnishings are comfortable, and cottagy. Well equipped ( though the dining table has poorly placed legs if there's a few of you sitting at it). Lovely grounds and we enjoyed the pool and walks into Newent

    We really enjoyed our weekend, everything that could be needed was there, however, the property was a bit down at heel, needing some maintenance and painting, however, that did not detract from our enjoyment of the weekend

    Our Stay was pleasant, but the accommodation was tired, cosy cottage that could do with a face lift...
