Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, England
On the outskirts of the tiny hamlet of Flaxley in a gated courtyard setting bounded by a stream and with immediate access to the owners' fields and lake, The Old Mill and The Old Dairy are the very attractive result of much thought and hard work.

There is a well-stocked lake in the adjacent meadow for fly-fishing enthusiasts: arrangements and any payment for this will be made directly with the owners.

Both these cottages have been cleverly and imaginatively designed to incorporate interesting architectural features and lavish use of natural ma...

We stayed for a week with our 5 month old baby and had a wonderfully relaxing stay. The cottage has a fantastic kitchen diner, incredibly well equipped. Gorgeous setting with nice walks very close by. Owners very helpful. Highly recommend, couldn't fault the cottage.

Just come back from spending a week at the Old Mill. We usually stay in the Old Dairy but needed more space this year. The layout of the accomodation is first class. All three bedrooms are in the downstairs area. One bedroom has its own en-suite. The upstairs lounge area overlooks the fantastic kitchen which is well equipped. Off the...

About the neighborhood
The whole area provides a wide range of activities. The Royal Forest of Dean is perfect for walking and cycling in the ancient woodlands and a number of water-based sports are available on the River Wye. There are also some spectacular views, for example from the famous Symonds Yat Rock, approx. 15 minutes' drive away. The Forest's mining heritage is celebrated in several visitor attractions including the Clearwell caves which are well-worth a visit. The attractive nearby village of Newnham-on-Severn has a post office, pub and store.

Regency Cheltenham, the cathedral cities of Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester, as well as much of the Cotswolds, are all within the range of a day's outing.
