Ted and Paddy’s barn is a surprise. Tucked off the High Street, it has four acres of garden with space for pigs, chickens, veg, sunny seats, trees – and for collie Bill to chase squirrels. The long hall has a quirky line of antique high chairs, and there’s a soaring living space beyond with a big wood-burner and comfy sofas; the white theme throughout contrasts with honey-coloured wood and odd splashes of colour. Bedrooms – one up spiral stairs on the sitting room mezzanine – have lovely linen and piles of pillows. Paddy is a good cook – her generous breakfasts often include their own sausages. Walk from the door into the Forest of Dean.

My wife and I visited the Forest of Dean for a short holiday in August 2017 and the highlight of the trip was, undoubtedly, our accommodation in Legg Barn. The bedroom was very comfortable and private with our own living-room space and television; breakfasts were delicious (and huge), and our hosts, Ted and Paddy could not have been more kind and helpful, providing information, packed food for trips and tea and cake on our return. Over three nights we felt as though we were in our own luxury apartment but at B&B prices. One of our best Sawday experiences.

Sublime night at Legg Barn; a brief stop over with Kids, Dog and Granny. None of this phased Paddy and we taken care of way above the call of duty. The best breakfast my son said he'd ever had, and my daughter wanted to steal away Bill the lovely collie! Stunning house and gardens, immaculate rooms. In short, the best B&B you're ever likely to find. Highly recommended doesn't begin to cover it.

Legg Barn is lovely. The property is spacious, quiet, stylish and conveniently located for exploring the Severn, Wye and Forest of Dean. It is set beside a bubbling brook and in an extensive garden. Our hosts were charming and friendly, providing us with excellent company and food. The bedroom and en suite were attractively furnished, comfortable and a good size. This is a gem among B&Bs which is wholeheartedly recommended.

My wife and I took our 7-month old to stay at Legg Barn for 2 nights and we had an amazing stay. The barn is beautiful and the mezzanine room we stayed in, slightly removed from the rest of the property, was perfect for us as a family. Paddy and her husband Ted made us feel incredibly welcome and went above board to accommodate our needs as a family to help make this a special weekend for us. The surrounding gardens are delightful and with the Forest of Dean and pubs and restaurants within walking distance, this makes for a fantastic weekend of sightseeing and relaxation. Highly recommended!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Paddy Curtis

  • Set in a large garden Legg Barn is a beautifully restored stone building which offers the perfect base to explore this fascinating and picturesque area, from the stunning view from Yat Rock perched 500 feet above the Wye to the deepest forest.
  • From here you can be in the vast ancient forest within minutes with it's miles of pathways for walking and cycling, where you can discover the abundant wildlife including deer, wild boar and many species of woodland birds.
  • Known as the prettiest coal field in Britain the forest has a fascinating industrial past from pre-Roman iron and ochre mines to the unique 'free mines',and the history of all of these is displayed at the nearby Heritage museum.
  • If you want a more active stay there is Go Ape tree-top adventure, the longest zip wire in the uk at the National Diving Centre and rock climbing in the Wye valley as well as canoeing and if you are a surfer, riding the Severn Bore.
  • Slightly further afield is Gloucester with it's magnificent Cathedral and Victorian docks, and also Cheltenham with it's beautiful Regency architecture, fabulous shopping and, of course, National Hunt racing.
  • In the other direction, Chepstow also offers racing and a wonderful castle, and a few miles up the river is Tintern Abbey much admired by Wordsworth and Victorian tourists. Further upstream are Monmouth and Ross on Wye, both pretty market towns.
