Condo/Apartment
An immaculately presented studio apartment providing the highest standard of accommodation attached to the owner’s own home in the popular village of Parkend. The Little Acorn is perfect for couples who want to relax and enjoy the beautiful unspoilt countryside. It is ideally situated with cycle/walking trails right outside the gate. Bikes can be hired in the village and the Nagshead Nature Reserve and the picturesque Cannop ponds are all in walking distance. In spring local woods are filled with a carpet of bluebells, whilst in autumn the reds and yellows of the trees are stunning. The area is full of wildlife from the shy hawfinch to deer and wild boar often spotted within a few yards of the property.

The Dean Forest Railway runs between Parkend and Lydney and allows visitors to explore the area at a relaxing pace. The village is well served by a small shop, two cafes and two excellent pubs offering delicious food and welcome refreshment. Available all year round the newly converted and tastefully decorated apartment has an open plan living /sleeping area with king size bed, comfortable sofa, tv, dvd player and wi-fi. There is a well equipped kitchen/diner with oven, hob, microwave and fridge freezer. The studio has a modern tiled bathroom with walk in shower and heated towel rail with all linen provided. The Little Acorn with its stylish and serene atmosphere is a haven to relax in after a day enjoying the beautiful forest surroundings, a quite day fishing, or maybe an active day canoeing down the river Wye.
