About William Wilding

Hooks Barn is owned by a Potter and a Comedian – Joan and William. We both went to art school, Joan studied ceramics, and William performance art. Joan now teaches pottery and William mows the lawn.

We spent 3 years converting Hooks Barn into a beautiful holiday home. Although a builder did the roof, with electricians and plumbers drinking endless cups of tea, the hard graft was done by us.

Hooks Barn is attached to the far end of Hooks Cottage, which is our home. But your privacy is paramount and we will not bother you unless you request it.

William Wilding purchased this barn in 1980

Why William Wilding chose Forest of Dean district

Brilliant location. There are forest walks right out the door, so if you arrive with supplies its possible to park the car, and not use it again. On the other hand there are also plenty of things to do within a short car ride.

What makes this barn unique

We live next door. So we are here to welcome you and show you around. Your private area in our garden has a great view of the countryside, and is a great place to watch the sun go down.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Reka Horvath - Christmas 2013

We can only thank William and Joan for the tremendous time we had. The pristine accommodation and their smashing hospitality made our Christmas even more special. Thank you - we'll be back.

Quiet, comfortable and modern

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful three night stay in this well-equipped converted barn. There are walks on your doorstep, all compiled by William, however, it was snowing when we were there, but they did look beautiful. The cottage is well equipped - William and Joan thought of everything, including Joan's home made potteries, which was a treat. We would highly recommend this beautiful barn for anyone seeking a short getaway.

The accommodation was excellent; in the summer a longer stay is warranted to enjoy the garden.

Unfortunately we were on a house search and couldn't spend more time in the excellent facilities and surroundings.

A Gem in the Forest

  • 5 of 5

If you don't enjoy stunning scenery, fantastic restaurants and pubs, historic towns and staying in a very comfortable residence then this is not for you. However you would be missing a golden opportunity to see England at its best with William and Joan nearby to look after you and guide you to where the most popular walks and places to eat are. Their welcome and friendliness makes you want to return and relax in peaceful surroundings. We would recommend anyone who enjoys the same things as we do to give them a try.You will not be disappointed! Many thanks for a memorable holiday.

Great base for exploring the area.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. It was really cosy with everything catered for.

We liked the local gardens and National Trust properties, so this cottage is well placed to go exploring.

William and Joan made us feel welcome. And we were able to use a private part of the garden for sitting out. Although we didn't have the best weather, we still enjoyed our stay, as we were able to curl up with books in the evenings.

The bedroom. Was comfortable with a good bed and the bathroom was more than adequate with good electric shower, basin and toilet.

We enjoyed this cottage and would recommend it to others wanting to explore this lovely area.
