I spent four nights at Annie’s and recommend it unreservedly to anyone wanting to get a bit of writing done. What to expect? Space to think and be. A stunning view from a cosy, self-contained ensuite room with a decent sized balcony. Good veggie grub, in plentiful amounts, three times a day. And an easy escape through immersion in the Forest of Dean, just one minute away. It felt like I was on holiday, despite working 12 hours a day. I haven’t been so enjoyably productive for a good while.
It’s easy getting there and away too. I took a train from London (a very pretty route) and Annie picked me up. Annie is a bundle of positive energy and curiosity and her and Ian are a pleasure to natter with.
