The thriving village of Mitcheldean, with its old timbered houses and narrow streets is situated close to the magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The forest offers numerous trails that can be explored on foot, by bicycle or by horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are on offer for the more adventurous, whilst fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this unspoilt area. Just a short drive away, in the historic waterfront city of Gloucester, you will find Roman foundations, Victorian Docklands and a spectacular Norman Cathedral (whose cloisters were used as a location in the Harry Potter films). Also within easy reach are the historic market town of Ross-on-Wye, in the heart of rural Herefordshire, boasting timbered Tudor houses and excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, and The Severn Estuary, famous for its tidal bore, which is a delight for birdwatchers, wildlife enthusiasts and bore surfers alike. This unspoilt area has something to offer everyone at any time of the year.

Previous visitors' comments about Brookbank Folly:
Both the cottage and the setting were lovely. Nice and private and we enjoyed the woodland walks from the door (we truly could walk straight from the property into the forest!)
Mrs Freeman, Croydon, March 2013
Fantastic little folly in the middle of a beautiful area. Felt very safe there and it was very quiet and relaxing.
Mr Hall, Bicester, February 2013
The 'different-ness' of the cottage and the peace and quiet.
