Set in a tranquil location with views across the River Severn, this superb property is ideal for your next BIG celebration. Sleeping 12 across six bedrooms with space for up to three dogs, this property is an opportunity for everyone to get together and enjoy a truly relaxing break without worrying about anyone bothering you. Whether your group loves a soak in the hot tub or prefers to challenge each other to rounds of table tennis or darts in the games room, this holiday home has it all to ensure you have a truly unforgettable stay.

The property, which lies within private grounds, boasts fantastic views from almost every angle. Take in the views of the river from the patio doors in the lounge, or draw the curtains and snuggle up on the sofas in front of the fire to create a cosy haven. Enjoy sociable meals at the dining table in the dining room among peaceful neutral tones; the contemporary kitchen and pantry with everything you need is next door and opens out into the spacious conservatory which is ideal for an after-dinner tipple when it’s chilly outside. If it’s not, head out to the garden where the patio is ideal for al fresco dining, and an indulgent hot tub beckons you in. The garden wraps around the house and there’s something for everyone including a mature fruit orchard and a fun basket swing, giving you so many ways to enjoy the stunning Cotswolds countryside. Back inside, get competitive with table football and more in the games room that also has a bar area for spectators. Enjoy a sumptuous bath in the en-suite bathroom before climbing into bed in the ground-floor super-king-size bedroom; there’s also a separate bathroom on this floor. Upstairs, five more bedrooms await. A king-size and super-king-size room both have fabulous views, and accessible from each of these rooms are two super-king-size zip-and-link rooms. A further double enjoys lovely views over the orchard, and all have their own style that will help you drift off to sleep. Lastly, another bathroom sits on this floor, reducing those morning queues.

Large, roomy house suitable for our three families to get together.The weather was not good for the week so the games room and hot tub were a big hit, especially with the children.Much of the area was waterlogged/ flooded so we were unable to explore any local walks but we did visit the Forest of Dean twice, about 30 mins drive to Beechenhurst SiteRead more, and got walks there, and again the children enjoyed the play park. Went to the Butterfly Zoo at Symons Yat, inside and warm, and enjoyed the maize. Hide

This cottage is absolutely amazing! It's so big I kept getting lost. The lay out and the settings of the rooms are all perfect. The place really is so delightful. We visited as part of a hen party and none of the girls wanted to leave. The games room was a huge hit, as was the hot tub.

A nice property well presented including Christmas decorations, logs for the fire, a working hot tub and with a lovely view towards the Severn. It worked pretty well for three families spanning 3 generations for our pre-Christmas family gathering. The owners were really helpful and responsive prior to the holiday, which was great. There are some goRead moreod, if muddy walks from the house. Hide
