The Barn is situated within the statutory Forest of Dean in Joyford, set within its own grounds of 6 acres, surrounded by farmland and woodland with direct access to the Forest. It is a scenic, tranquil location accessed from a single track no through lane but surprisingly centrally located for exploring the Forest and surrounding areas. There is a very good pub within 5 minutes walk, a shop / Post Office and Chinese takeaway 0.4 miles away and the nearest town with all amenities is Coleford, 2 miles away. The property is two storey with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. The main bedroom is a double and the second bedroom is smaller with a bunk bed. Travel cot and high chair available. This lay out is ideal for families.
