What makes this Cottage unique
Offers a peaceful holiday 'get away' setting surrounded by open common land and forestry.
Lovely homely cottage
This is a lovely, quaint, detached cottage with good views over the forest. We were met by the owner, Jane, who was extremely welcoming and helpful without being at all intrusive. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. The bathroom is downstairs as described but was certainly not a problem for us.
The surrounding area is very picturesque with lots to see and do. There are walks from the doorstep, we managed the one and a quarter mile to the pub at Parkend! There is a local pub nearer which I think must be open in the evening.
We had a really relaxing break watching the chickens and sheep pottering around the land opposite but three days wasn't long enough so we will hopefully be returning. We would definately recommend the cottage and the area.
Thank you so much for your comments. We are extremely pleased that the cottage suited your needs and we look forward to meeting you again.

A very relaxing and cosy cottage
We had a lovely relaxing stay at the cottage. It was very cosy and peaceful. Our children loved the free roaming chickens and sheep outside the cottage gates and the swing hanging from the tree. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. It was a great base for us to go canoeing on the River Wye. Would definately recommend.
A lovely family, so glad you enjoyed this part of the country. Thank you for your comments.
Charming, country setting.
Sheep and chickens roam free in the common area outside of the courtyard. Jane and Malcolm were both wonderfully helpful. When they saw that my husband had a broken foot, they quickly brought down a twin bed and set it up in the dining room so that my husband would not have to deal with stairs. Many thanks!
Thank you. Your comments are appreciated. Have a safe journey home.
The cottage is located in a quiet setting in the ancient Royal Forest of Dean, two miles from the riverside town of Lydney, Gloucestershire. Away from traffic and noise, we are positioned directly behind forestry land and common land the cottage is perfectly positioned for exploring the abundant wildlife and fauna of the Forest where sheep graze freely.
Walkers and cyclists of all ages enjoy the miles of footpaths and cyclepaths which criss-cross the Forest of Dean. The Forest of Dean is a dog's paradise and dogs are welcome in the cottage.
The Forest of Dean is famous amongst keen cyclists for its excellent mountain bike and downhill trails which are being extended all the time. The family cycle path follows an old railway line, ideal for a leisurely ride for the whole family.
Children love Puzzlewood, Go Ape, Clearwell Caves and a ride on the Dean Forest Steam Railway or at Perrygrove Miniature Railway with its treehouses and secret passageways. The Dean Railway provides Adults and children alike an enjoyable day out with attractions such as Thomas the Tank Engine, and friends. The Forest of Dean is bordered by two rivers - The Severn - try surfing the world famous Severn Bore, and The Wye where canoeing, kayaking and boat rides are readily available. Why not try a leisurely stroll around Cannop ponds and Mallards Pike, and take in all the peacefulness of the surroundings.
The magnificent Tintern Abbey beside the River Wye, the Castle at Chepstow and the Cathedral at Gloucester are popular historic sites.
