Surrounded by countryside with well waymarked paths that will guide you through some breath taking scenery no matter what the time of year. Both the Forest of Dean and Wye valley are steeped in history with many medieval and market towns to explore, Ross on Wye, Monmouth, Tintern and Hay on Wye. And for a little more adventure outdoors there is canoeing and rock climbing at Symonds Yat, Mountain biking for all abilities throughout the Forest of Dean and for serious walking the Black Mountains just across the border.

Step on into the lounge/kitchen/diner simply brimming with character which has been cleverly mixed with its own eclectic style, the simple touches and vibrant colours will take your breath away. The lounge area is welcoming with comfy sofas that are complemented with cushions and throws, and the wood burner is perfect for a chilly autumn evening. The bespoke kitchen is well-equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge. And for a simple supper there is a table for two within the open-plan area. A useful utility area with a washing machine is situated just off the kitchen.  When the day is done climb the stairs to the mezzanine bedroom within the eaves, this simple and spacious room is light and airy with a double bed and a further day bed well placed close to the open bannister overlooking the lounge just perfect to escape and enjoy a chapter of a good book, there is an en-suite shower room with WC.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this cottage. As mentioned in previous reviews, it is a bit dark downstairs if the sun isn't shining, but lovely and bright upstairs. Great base for visiting Symonds Yat and other areas around the Wye valley and in walking distance of 2/3 good pubs restaurants.

The cottage is very comfortable and cosy and very well situated to get to all parts of the Forest of Dean. We had good weather and It was a joy to sit out in the enclosed garden beside the stream. The owners are very friendly and were very helpful when we had an invasion of flying ants due to the hot weather.

Pleasant and comfortable cottage. Interior is a little dark - not too bad if the weather is good but could be gloomy if the weather is inclement. Small, pleasant seating area outside by the brook. Shower is cosy and not for the very tall - but has got a seat. Several good places to eat nearby - a couple within walking distance. Nearest shops are inRead more Coleford, about 2 miles away. Hide

The cottage was really cosy and perfect for our needs. Taller people may have difficulty with the shower which is a bit cramped and the bed which has a solid base on the end. The cottage has all of the necessary amenities. The location was fantastic! Very peaceful and quiet village. Clearwell Caves are definitely worth a visit.

The location is wonderful, set in a beautiful village with so many walks right on the door step. A great base for exploring the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley. The cottage is cosy when the log fire is lit and the kitchen is well equipped.
