Enjoying an enviable location in the heart of a valley, this stylishly finished cottage is the perfect getaway, set within acres of established gardens and farmland.

Set within acres of established gardens and stunning countryside, this stylish cottage is the perfect romantic getaway. Sleeping two humans and two dogs, explore the rolling hills of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, before returning to your beautiful home-from-home to meet the friendly neighbours capybara, reindeer and zebra, just to name a few, all live on the grounds surrounding the property, and benefit from the conservation and rescue work that the owners do. Please note the private animal rescue sanctuary is not open to the public.

Relax in the cosy lounge area, with Fido sprawled out on the dark wooden floors, and appreciate the restoration of the property, with painted stone work complemented by thick handwoven curtains. Rustle up a tasty meal in the bespoke kitchen area, with views across the grounds, before sitting down to eat around the solid wood dining table. Say goodnight to Rover and head upstairs to soak tired legs in the large wood-panel sunken bath before sinking into the sumptuous king-size bed. Step outside for morning coffee and enjoy a pastry with views across the gardens and onto the valley from the table. Watch a content pooch sniff around the enclosed garden before heading out to explore the shared grounds and outdoor pool.

Let Fido take the lead on the 4.5-mile sculpture trail in Coleford (9 miles) or visit the ruins and grounds of Goodrich Castle (4.5 miles) and let Mutley sniff hundreds of years of history in every room with you. Descend into the dog-friendly Clearwell Caves (12 miles) that have been formed by underground streams which have been mined for iron ore as far back as Roman times. "

We chose Dexter's Den partly because of the animals which are rescued & cared for there.
