Avoid the big metropolitan areas such as Coleford( dull) Lydney (even worse) and Cinderford (it's not called the monkey tump for nothing!)
I have just snorted coffee and a biscuit over my keyboard. Thanks.
Lots of good advice above, the smaller villages are a better bet. Avoid Cinderford, Coleford, Lydbrook, Drybrook areas. As for Ruardean.........
Depends on where your good lady will be working. The FOD is quite big with twisty roads, so it can take 20 minutes to drive to the borders.
Although in the summer it can look very nice, do some house hunting in the depths of winter to get a view of how dark and depressing the FOD can be.
Also check how good the internet services are. Lots of patchy coverage. Phone signals can be terrible too.
