Once the farmhouse on a busy working farm in the Forest of Dean, Viney Hill Country House is now a fantastic large group holiday house with 8 bedrooms sleeping 8 people plus room for 2 more guests at an extra charge each. Downstairs there’s a library, games room, living room, kitchen/diner and utility room, all spacious, bright and airy with everything you need for a happy holiday.
The kitchen/diner is big and well equipped, allowing for sociable cooking and chatting; the dining table is perfect for gathering round and raising a glass before you tuck into a celebration feast, and don’t forget – if you’d rather not do the cooking you can book one of our recommended professional caterers; you’ll find more details on our Extras page.
Just off the kitchen, the utility room has access from outside so it’s very convenient for when you come back from a country walk in the Forest of Dean with muddy boots and wet dogs. Go on in to the living room and curl up on the sofa with the cosy warmth of the wood-burner and a tray of tea and toast – lovely. The library is perfect for a quiet read of the paper, otherwise have a game of pool in the games room or play table football in the sun room.
Bedrooms 1 and 2 are on the second floor and have en suite shower rooms and zip and link beds that can be arranged as superkings or two singles. On the first floor are Bedrooms 3 to 8, all with en suite facilities; Bedrooms 3 and 4 have zip and link beds, and the rest have kingsize beds, with the exception of Bedroom 8 which has a small double. Bedrooms 5 and 7 both have an additional single bed – great for families or for three friends or older children sharing. There is also a family bathroom on this floor.
Outside there’s over an acre of gardens so plenty of room for the young ‘uns to run about and let off steam, plus there’s a play area with a climbing frame, swings, slide and trampoline and play equipment for toddlers. The pool is covered so can be used any time of year, and there’s the BBQ lodge to snuggle together and toast marshmallows even when it’s cold out.
