The house was a little bit more threadbare than I expected and the showers weren’t great but it was warm, comfy and very well provisioned. I also struggled to find it using the post code provided but found the housekeeper very helpful and friendly and...More

About the neighborhood
The forest of Dean has been populated at least since Roman times and is of great historic interest retaining vestiges of its varied past as a centre for charcoal-burning, iron and coal mining and forestry. It represents one of the largest tracts of historic forest in England with many varied broad-leaved and coniferous trees - some of them hundreds of years old.

The cottage is situated right next to the forest which offers a wealth of outdoor activities including mountain-biking (family trail with cycle hire 2 miles away), canoeing and kayaking on the river Wye (Symonds Yat 4 miles away), a high wire forest adventure course at 'Go Ape' (2 miles), as well as an extensive network of forest trails. The area abounds in wild-life; highlights include peregrine falcons, goshawks, deer a...
