Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment was amazing. I have never stayed somewhere which was so well presented - the décor was beautiful and they had provided lots of books, games and DVDs for evening / wet weather entertainment.

Well kept property, excellent facilities, very clean, beautiful furnishings and décor. Welcome pack was very "welcome".

We stayed just 2 nights in Jaywood and want to go back! The apartment was perfect, I could have happily lived there. It was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. I loved the quilts and homely touches.

Great little getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time when we stayed at Jaywood for a long weekend. The apartment has all you need and is very well kept and well thought out. The shower is great and the welcome pack we received was amazing. This is a great value retreat for short breaks in the country. The only criticism we had was our dryer lead was not long enough to be able to see yourself in the mirror on the wardrobe door so maybe a small mirror on the chest of draws? but that is really nit picking.

Activity and Interests

Car: necessary


Although a local bus service passes within half a mile of the apartment, a car is highly recommended. We do, however, have cyclists staying. Lydney, the nearest train station, is 10 miles away.


Lydbrook, our nearest village, is less than a mile away so within walking distance.

Symonds Yat is 5 miles by car, Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth are both 8 miles away. Gloucester, with its cathedral and waterways museum, is 17 miles by road and Hereford about 45 minutes drive. There are castles at Goodrich, Raglan and Chepstow and the ruins of Tintern Abbey - all within half an hour's drive.

Further Details:

Lydbrook has a village shop and post office, which provides the essentials - including fresh bread delivered daily. There is a pub in Lydbrook, which serve food. Coleford, 3 miles away, has a range of shops and a Lloyds bank.

Apart from walking and cycling, the Wye valley and Forest of Dean are also noted for their outdoor activities. Canoeing, climbing, abseiling, potholing and riding are all available locally. There is 'Go Ape' 5 miles away and the National Diving centre near Chepstow. Further afield, the Black mountains are 45 minutes drive, and the Brecon Beacons about an hour away.
