Studio, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
Mitcheldean, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, England
Set at the top of beautiful Shapridge Hill at the end of a quiet track, Little Owl is the perfect romantic getaway. Ideal for walkers and nature lovers, footpaths lead from the front door onto a vast network of Forest paths and tracks, you can literally walk for miles!

Superb accommodation located on the edge of Forest of Dean. Easy access to many attractions within the area including Symonds Yat (spectacular), Clearwell Caves, Mallards Pike Ponds, Ross on Wye. The standard of the studio was second to none, well-appointed, quality furnishings, tasteful décor, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Friendly, helpful owners. Many birds to observe, not to mention Barney...
