This spacious country home affords a wonderful location within the Forest of Dean with an abundance of forest tracks available to explore, right from your doorstep. For friends or families who love nature and the great outdoors, this is a fantastic base. The house can sleep up to eight guests across four bedrooms and boasts spacious rooms that are perfect for entertaining.

Enter the property on the first floor to find the lounge with a large seating area and a wood burner, for cosy nights curled up in front of the TV. A double bedroom with en-suite shower and WC shares this floor too. On the ground floor, you’ll find a bright and airy kitchen/diner/conservatory.

Up, on the second floor are the remaining bedrooms, which have all been styled with luxurious soft furnishings and some even feature traditional stone walls. The enclosed garden outside opens right out onto the countryside. The views from here are beautiful, regardless of which season you decide to visit. Sit and relax in the sunken terrace area and enjoy a bottle of wine with friends as you listen to the gentle sound of the water from the River Lyd which flows past the bottom of the garden.

A beautiful and well equipped house. It is gorgeously decorated with plenty of comfortable rooms for a large family and a dog to spread out. Our puppy loved the dog bed. The views are fabulous and there are amazing forest walks within minutes of the house. The thoughtful extras such as the bathrobes, welcome hamper and hot water bottles were lovelyRead more (the heating was so good we didn't need them!) There is a good, dog friendly pub a few doors down. Hide

The property was outstanding. Every room had a touch of luxury. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch and the show home kitchen to die for! The garden is very secure for dogs and the neighbours very friendly and helpful. The beds are super comfortable, all in all I can not find a fault.
