10/10 - The space, peace and very quiet. Great area for badminton and croquet plus mini football for toddlers. The area fenced off for the swings, slide and trampoline was great, our grandson loved bouncing everyday. 
The house itself is very spacious, clean and comfortable. Beds comfy tho pillows abit flat, I'll be taking my own next time. Could also do with a clock in the pool house and in the kitchen/dinning area. Small grumbles, it won't stop us going again, already booked for next year.

9/10 - The house was very secluded and totally safe for children as the garden was completely enclosed with large gates. It was thoughtfully designed with lots of home comforts. The pool house was a massive hit with everyone and the pavilion was the best place to enjoy an evening get together. The only negative comment was from some of the party who thought their beds were a little uncomfortable. - Fuller - August 2021

10/10 - We had a wonderful week at Whitehaven. Steve the owner was extremely friendly and helpful. The house was like a 5 star hotel - perfectly equipped for a large party and with all those little touches that most places are lacking. Plenty of plastic dishes for outdoor eating and drinking, pots and pans galore and a great easy to operate range in the kitchen. The pool was perfect for all ages, the outdoor facilities were superb, loved the entertaining hut and the barbecue area was an added bonus. Children had loads of room to run around and explore without getting into too much trouble, loads of space for scooters and bikes to ride around and the trampoline swings and slide were well used. We were blessed with perfect weather so barely left the property all week - didnt need to. It was like home from home. Loved the local area for early evening walks. Could have done with another week.- Kehoe - July 2021

10/10 - Absolutely loved the pool and kids area. - Wisher May 2021

10/10 - The house was spotlessly clean, had everything we needed for adults and children, very safe garden. We would definitely book this property again and maybe for a week so we can explore the area. - Fabian - April 2021

10/10 - We have spent the most glorious week at this amazing house. We could not have been more pleased with the facilities and the level of comfort. The pool is lovely and warm and a great size. The full size pool table gave us endless fun as did the table football. Didn’t realise I was so talented at table football. The heated gazebo is really handy this time of year. The play area and trampoline are great too and were well used by Ava and Frankie not to mention the rest of us 🥳. The kitchen was a dream with everything you could need. Everything you could want to do easily fitted at least 12 people. The location is peaceful and beautiful. Literally on the edge of the Forest of Dean. Sheep roaming around right outside the gate all the time. Recommend a visit to the George at St Briavels, the Sculpture Trail, the Cock Inn, the Globe and the Miners Arms. Super!!! - Tomlin - September 2020

10/10 - Kay, whose family own the property was there to greet us an explain about the property, she left her number in case we needed her during our stay and she was there at our leaving to check on any problems and asked us personally if anything could have been done it improve our stay...great service. Perhaps the one thing we could have mentioned and didn't, (it didn't spoil our enjoyment) is investing in a new BBQ, a gas one would be great. However, the one on hand is perfectly useable just old. We had a great few days in Whitehaven. - Wright - September 2020

10/10 - The house was perfect. We can recommend Symonds Yat Rock, the walk down to Symonds Yat, canoeing on the River Wye and lunch at the Saracens Head. - Campbell - August 2020

9/10 - Swimming pool was great for all the family, plenty of outside space. A great house for family get togethers. Puzzlewood was good fun for younger children. - Donohue - August 2020

10/10 - As lockdown is slowly being lifted we didn't go out much. The house was fully kitted out with everything we needed to be self sufficient. A great holiday. We can recommend Go Ape. - Mansfield - July 2020

9/10 - The property was lovely and we all had a great time. Plenty of walks in Forest of Dean and the Wye river. - Martin - July 2020

10/10 - The pool was great and plenty of facilities in the accommodation the kitchen was stocked up with everything required and the king size bedroom was awesome...maybe a dartboard instead of table football would have suited us better. We used this accommodation for our base as we attend the Cheltenham Festival for the week and it was perfect only a 45minute taxi ride to the track but in a nice secluded spot in a quite area. - Cousins - March 2020

10/10 - The House and garden was amazing and we all loved the pool. The children really enjoyed the garden play facilities too. We had a great stay. - Piearce - March 2020

10/10 - The whole family - 6 adults and 5 children from 10 months to 8 years old - had a wonderful time in Whitehaven. We all loved the swimming pool, and the children had great fun on the climbing frame and trampoline. The house was very well equipped, and warm and comfortable. It was an excellent place to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. - Leroy - Janary 2020

10/10 - The house and it’s grounds are so wonderful we never felt the need to leave! Enough for adults and children are to be kept entertained! - Menditta - January 2020

10/10 - The house is gorgeous very well equipped with everything we needed. The swimming pool was used very much by the grandchildren and the adults lived the pool table. - Harrison - December 2019

10/10 - The house was lovely and clean and had everything we needed. The heated indoor pool was great. The house is in a lovely location. For children Perrygrove Railway is worth a visit and is good value for money. - Wadeley - December 2019

10/10 - Dennis - November 2019

9/10 - We went to Chepstow and had a sandwich lunch. The children enjoyed the pool and the billiard table. - Parker - October 2019

10/10 - The children were over the moon with the pool, we had a job keeping them out to get them fed. As for being able to improve our week end we could not have asked any more from our stay. - Bentley - September 2019

10/10 - Absolutely brilliant weekend, perfect for all ages. Child safety measures in place perfectly. 
House was spotlessly clean and amenities were great! Swimming pool warm enough for our group - age range from 1 to 91! Fabulous trip! Thank you x
- Ferguson - September 2019

8/10 - Whitehaven is quite nice to stay but there are something can be done to improve the place. 1) Internet wasn’t very good.  2) There can be shower room and hot tub in the pool 3) some shower rooms are not draining waters very well. - Gunaydin - September 2019

10/10 - Fantastic property, wonderful family accommodation. - Aitken - August 2019

10/10 - Our family, especially the children loved the pool and play area in the garden. The house was gorgeous and everything was perfect. We can recommend days out to Perrygrove RailwayPuzzlewoodBathurst ParkThe Amazing Hedge Puzzle, Lovely drive through the Forest of Dean including Symonds Yat. - Mills - August 2019

8/10 - The house was spacious and comfortable with lots of facilities, although the structure of the pool house and some of the kitchen appliances were a little tired and needed a bit of updating. - Hughes - August 2019

10/10 - The house and pool were fantastic. Super clean and tidy and high quality facilities. The kids play area is a little unsecure and loose and kids needed constant supervision whilst playing. Also owners came in every morning to check the pool which is nice to know they care and take pride in it but also a little annoying. - Gilbert - July 2019

10/10 - Everything was just perfect, thank you. - Irving - July 2019

10/10 - The house was that well equipped cooking a full english breakfast every morning was no problem at all the kitchen was perfect the pool was great The weather was amazing what more could you ask for, the owners were great couldn't fault anything there. - Richards - June 2019

10/10 - We enjoyed everything, but the pool was amazing and the children loved their play area. Thank you. - Shaw - June 2019

10/10 - The house and facilities were exactly as described. Everything was immaculate, very spacious and well equipped. Local craft centre in Lydney worth a visit - excellent chocolatier! - Chapman - June 2019

10/10 - Really lovely place to stay. We had everything we needed for all the age ranges that came on the holiday. The house and grounds were spotless and everything worked as it should. The owners were friendly popping in to check the pool each morning. Splendid place to relax whilst the kids play in the pool and trampoline. - Stiles - May 2019

10/10 - I don't think the experience could have been improved. It was the perfect house for a family get together, with 6 adults and 6 children. Very close to walking in the Forest of Dean. The property was so good for children with plenty of garden space, an indoor pool, and a pool table (which was in constant use) that we didn't go out much. Puzzlewood was thoroughly enjoyed by the 9 and 6 year olds. Also Go Ape nearby was enjoyed by the older children. - Drinkwater - May 2019

10/10 - We all, particularly the children, loved the pool. The heated gazebo was great for a barbeque lunch and celebratory drinks. Kay and her father gave us a very good welcome on arrival. Everything about the kitchen/dining area was great for a big group. Various little touches around the house eg dressing gowns, hand wash, tissues in all rooms made it feel special. - Routley - May 2019

10/10 - The house is great. Symonds Yat, Go Ape, Crazy golf, with free table tennis pool, air hockey and great milk shakes. This is at the Taurus Craft Centre. Cycle trails, and for great fun, Sunday evening bingo at 7-15 The Nags Head . One of the most friendly pubs we have been in. Kids loved it and we won £30. - Harvey - April 2019

10/10 - Loved the house, spacious, clean and modern. Super area of the country. Need to check that all showers are working at their peak - the one in our room was a bit pathetic, even after the owner had looked at it. We visited Symonds Yat Rock and Lydney Railway. - Lennox - April 2019

9/10 - Beautiful house, very clean & well equipped. Perfect swimming pool. - Wakefield - April 2019

9/10 - We particularly enjoyed the swimming pool. The house was very well equipped with crockery, glasses etc and it was useful to have 2 dishwashers and fridges. The bedrooms were very nicely decorated and comfortable. The utility room had hooks for coats and a rack for boots but it would have been useful to have had more provision for drying wet clothes and towels. Swimming things dried if hung up in the pool area. We visited the Steam train on Dean Forest Railway from Parkend to Lydney Junction, walk down to Lydney Harbour and along the Severn Estuary before walking back to get a return train. Visit Symonds Yat. Plenty of walks in the Forest. - Douglas - April 2019

10/10 - It was a perfect holiday home for our group, we loved everything, especially the indoor swimming pool! Visited Sculpture Walk and Goodrich Castle. - Finlayson - March 2019

10/10 - Home away from home. The swimming pool was fantastic, we will definitely be going back in the future. The owner Kay was also really helpful, right up to and throughout the entire stay. - Haridas - March 2019

9/10 - The lounge area wasn’t big enough to seat 12 adults but apart from that it is perfect. Horse riding with Severnvale. - Dunderdale - March 2019

10/10 - Heath - March 2019

10/10 - Thoughtful touches such as milk for a cup of tea, items left out for the dog which were unexpected but very welcome. Some of the tele's in the bedrooms were not working and we could not find the remotes for the 2 downstairs TVs but this was a minor irritation and did not detract from the fabulous holiday we had. - Clark - February 2019

Response: "All the TV's are operated from the SKY remotes which are all in full working order, this is all explained during the introducton at the beginning of the stay." - Owner

9/10 - All facilities as promised in blurb, excellent and spotless, swim pool very popular and always felt clean. Pool table very popular. Thank you for providing such a comfortable, very well equipped holiday home. Only problem: We struggled to set oven temperatures, markings rubbed off. We wonder why you do not offer waterproof sheets to be ordered alongside child bed rails. Ikea do a splendid, comfortable fitted one. It means less risk for you and that we wouldn't have to strip beds to fit own sheets when first arriving, esp late at night. - Kazer - February 2019

Response: "Whitehaven has waterproof mattress protectors on all its mattresses." - Owner

9/10 - The ladies enjoyed the swimming pool and the men enjoyed the pool table. There are lots of places to see and walks nearby. We enjoyed Gloucester Quays, Coleford and Monmouth. - Lawrence - February 2019

10/10 - The house is extremely comfortable & well equipped, the dressing gowns are a lovely touch. Plenty of room for a large family gathering, with lots to keep multi generation groups entertained. The pool table & football table were enjoyed by all. The child’s play area was a favourite of the younger members, the pool was lovely & warm, used constantly all weekend by all of our family. My personal favourite was the heated summerhouse, fabulous for evening drinks! Kay was easy to deal with, very accommodating having my fathers oxygen fitted to the house before our arrival. Thank you Kay we had a wonderful weekend! - Woodward - August 2018
