Excellent service. Very comfortable rooms. Lovely Breakfast. Top Class.
Eric & Janet Wyatt and Szymon the dog, Derbyshire – November 2011
We just wanted to say thank you so much for your hospitality. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you and everyone especially found your breakfast just perfect. Now we are home, a bowl of porridge doesn’t seem quite as appealing!! The perfect weather helped to make our latest visit to Lea House our best one yet. We just didn’t waste a moment, even on Friday we managed a walk along the river from Tintern, coupled with a visit to the Horse Sanctuary, most enjoyable. It was so lovely to meet your latest companions – Cracker is just so sweet and Jelly Bean would, I’m sure, melt anyone’s heart. Mark can’t stop talking about her so keep us informed of their progress. I just know you are in for a fun time, with Lilli’s help as well – enjoy. Special kisses for Lilli, Jelly B and Cracker XXX
Lizzie, Lee and Mark, Kent – October 2011

Chris Griffiths & Phil Munday, Bedfordshire - Dec 2010
A beautiful haven, with sumptuous breakfasts and lovely rooms – and playful kittens – couldn’t be better!
Richard & Sheona Wheeler, Almeria, Spain – August 2010
A warm welcome, comfortable room, good food, spotlessly clean, beautiful relaxing garden. We came for a night and stayed for three. We will be back.

Just wonderful. We were given a recommendation and we agree – 10 out of 10. Thank you Caroline. All the best!

I felt thoroughly ‘at home’. Your concern for every need of your guests is phenomenal. Breakfast a delight. Would love to come again.
Pat Pratelli, Middx - July 2009
On the way home we took your advice and visited the pottery at Wobage Farm which was fascinating. We fell in love with a modern take on a "bust" for our garden feature which now resides just beyond the rear door to our hall.
We then travelled to Ledbury which was well worth the visit. The Emporium was a treasure trove and we also had a look round the museum in Church Lane. Finally we called in at Croome Park near Pershore to see the Capability Brown landscapes.
Thanks again for your hospitality - it all lived up to our (high) expectations!.
Peter & Vivien, June 2009
Best stay yet
Mick & Andy, Land’s End to John O’Groats Cycle Ride – June 2009

Jackie Hambling, Nita & David Hudson
Many thanks for looking after us so well, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and in particular your cooking, which was a delight on the palate.
Bryn and Jan - 3rd Nov 2006
Many thanks once again for the wonderful stay at Lea House, and for the use of the OS map. We spent an extremely pleasant afternoon at Symonds Yat by the river, and saw our first family of wild peregrine falcons at the RSPB viewpoint. We attempted the journey back you had recommended and, passing Tintern Abbey, the jaws dropped. Outstanding. One beautiful Severn Bridge crossing later, we found ourselves once more coasting merrily on the M4.
William & Anne - 19th July 2006
Both Jez and myself both wanted to thank you for a most enjoyable stay at Lea House. You were the perfect hostess - enjoyed the chats - that's something you don't get in normal bed and breakfast houses - it was nice that you took time out to chat to your guests. The room was 'home from home' and the food was restaurant quality - especially liked the stuffed courgette and the courgette fritters!! It was just a shame that we couldn't have stayed a little while longer, but it has been a pleasure meeting you.
Nicki and Jez Procter - Aug 2006
Thank you Caroline for a perfect stay, it was like home from home and you were like a mother to us four lads. The room was very big and comfortable and the breakfast was very nice and filling. Would definately recommend and hope to see you again same time next year with a bit of luck !!!!
Paul, Ian, Pep and the little lad Danny - May 2006
Thanks for looking after us so well, lovely food, comfortable room. Like and appreciate the attention to detail.
Viv Jackson & Val Hey - West Yorkshire - November 2005
We think we have found the Jewel in the Crown of the Forest of Dean. Excellent accommodation and food.
Pam & Ted Roscoe - Crewe, Cheshire - July 2005
Home from home - you've thought of everything! And sunshine too …..!Thank you.
Annie & Malcolm Kenyon - Algarve, Portugal - June 2005

We enjoyed your guest house very much. Homemade bread, Q-tips (cotton buds) and cushy toilet paper - what more could we ask?!
Dick & Joan Coapman - California - October 2004
Delightful good value B&B. Friendly welcome. We enjoyed sitting in your lovely garden with the dogs and cats.

Thank you for a lovely weekend, and great hospitality. Our dogs really enjoyed themselves too
Rachael & Tony, "Bowsen" and "Porter" - July 2003
We had a wonderful time at your very special home. It was my favorite place that we stayed, hands down. I'm sure everyone leaves your B and B with the same feeling we had about you, which is that you are a friend.

Of all the places where we have bed and breakfasted, Lea House comes out on top of the list. Comfort is at a premium with lovely furnishings and a good selection of toiletries in each guestroom. The food is delicious with home-made bread and preserves. Great advice is also given as to where to visit and what to do.

After a brief search on the internet for b&b's that allow dogs, I stumbled across 'Lea House'. Caroline could not have been any more welcoming, if like us you're always abit apprehensive about allowing your dogs into someone elses home, particularly with 2 large labradors, we need not have worried as together with Caroline's two dogs we were made to feel part of the family. We enjoyed our stay so much we even cancelled our next port of call in the brecons to stop over one more evening. All in all it was a perfect couple of days and we will definately be back... with the dogs! Thank you Tony & Rachael

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lea House. Caroline is the perfect hostess/concierge/proprietor. Our rooms were comfortable and lovely (best bed we had while in England!). And the homemade breads and jams along with the fresh juice made the breakfast a feast. On our next visit, we definitely want to try Caroline's dinner cuisine. Thank you for a memorable stay.

Lea House is more than home-from-home - it's cosy, clean, comfortable and friendly and best of all - you get looked after! On entering Lea House you immediately experience the beautiful little garden, the peaceful lounge/dining room, spacious bedrooms all wonderfully decorated and filled with character and of course, the delicious breakfast - everything from homemade breads and preserves to freshly squeezed fruit juices....Marvellous! Every effort is made to make guests feel welcome - the attention to detail is second to none. My husband and I have stayed in a good few B & B's over the years but we have to say that Caroline has made Lea House one of the best...Thank-you - we hope to see you again soon.

What lovely hospitality, your homemade food was absolutley delicious. As a retreat, I had a really quiet and relaxing time.
Thank you so much for sharing your home.
Malvern, - Saturday, April 19, 2003 at 14:00:26 (MST)
Our family had a wonderful time at the Lea House. During our tour of southern England, it was easily the nicest B&B we stayed in – spacious, comfortable rooms decorated and furnished beautifully, a warm and convivial parlor for the guests, and a congenial and charming atmosphere throughout. The location was quite convenient for a vast area of touring, and we could easily have allocated four days for exploring each of the points of the compass, using Lea House as our home base. Our hosts, who have lived in the U.S., understood and anticipated our Yankee needs most graciously! Thank you Caroline & David -- we'll be back!

Thoroughly enjoyable two day stay in idyllic surroundings. Very peaceful and homely - especially liked the home made bread at breakfast ! Nothing was too much trouble for the attentive owners including loan of OS maps !
