The property

Lydney 0.7 miles.

A splendid first floor conversion in a Grade II listed coach house perched on a hill, with stunning views over Lydney and the Severn Estuary.

Located in the grounds of the owner’s home and sympathetically converted to a high standard whilst keeping the character features, this spacious apartment is perfect for couples or small families to enjoy the delights of the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley.

Tastefully appointed, there is a spacious open plan, beamed living area with a well-equipped kitchen overlooking the walled courtyard below.

The dining area is in the corner of the comfortable sitting area which has far-reaching views over the shared gardens to the countryside and river beyond.

The main bedroom has a king-size bed with glorious views over the countryside to the rear of the property, whilst the cosy twin-bedded room overlooks the courtyard to the front of the coach house.

The delightful, extensive shared gardens feature four ponds and are just perfect for relaxing and enjoying a welcome drink after the day’s activities, or perhaps stroll down the hill into the town and sample one of the many pubs, cafes or restaurants.

The stunning countryside of the nearby Forest of Dean and Offa's Dyke provide excellent walking, cycling, fishing and nature watching opportunities.

Nearby visits to Clearwell Caves, Puzzlewood, Littledean Jail, Symonds Yat Rock or the Dean Forest Steam Railway can all be discovered, resulting in something for everyone in this delightful area.

The pretty riverside towns of Chepstow, Monmouth and Ross-on-Wye are also close by with the bustling cities of Cardiff and Newport an easy drive.

This charming character apartment is a perfect base to explore the many attractions of the area or for a relaxing break at any time of the year.

About the location

LYDNEY

Chepstow 9 miles, Monmouth 12 miles

The small, thriving town of Lydney is situated between the eastern edge of the Forest of Dean and the River Severn in Gloucestershire. Lydney has a very good range of shops, a leisure centre and sports facilities, as well as pubs, cafes and restaurants serving a wide variety of meals. The magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, boasts numerous trails that can be explored on foot, by bike or on horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are for the more adventurous, whilst fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this unspoilt area. The ancient caves of Clearwell are nearby, as are the Gloucestershire Way and Offa's Dyke Path. Symonds Yat boasts natural scenery and straddles the beautiful River Wye with its magnificent limestone outcrop, popular with climbers, and well-known for its viewpoint. Visit the nearby historic walled town of Chepstow with its impressive Norman Castle and the celebrated racecourse, whilst the pretty market town of Monmouth, with its mixture of elegant Georgian mansions and Victorian courtyards, or the lovely town of Ross-on-Wye with its timbered Tudor houses and delightful riverside walks, both offer excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. The unspoilt Brecon Beacons National Park and Black Mountains, as well as lovely Cotswold towns and villages are just a little further afield as are the cities of Cheltenham, Gloucester, Cardiff, Newport, and just across the Severn Bridge, Bristol and Bath. Lydney is ideally placed for enjoying the delights of Gloucestershire at any time of the year.
