    “It was such a friendly and welcoming place, we felt like we were part of the farm.”

    The whole experience was friendly, stress free and we felt at one with nature, a lovely place to stay.

The property

Drybrook 2 miles.

A beautiful, ground floor barn conversion, a wing of the owner's home, surrounded by their five-acre smallholding, down a lane in the SSSI in Wigpool, in the heart of the Forest of Dean.

The smallholding is home to chickens, sheep, ducks, horses, a woodland area and an orchard, and is just two miles from the village of Drybrook.

Luxuriously furnished throughout with the owner's personal touches, this delightful cottage offers contemporary accommodation, ideal for a romantic break or a get-together with family and friends in a peaceful and unspoilt part of the country.

Set over the ground floor, overlooking fields and woodland, the cottage has a master bedroom with French doors and views of the garden, a large open-plan living area which exudes quality and style and includes a well-equipped kitchen with French doors into the garden and a warming woodburning stove in the sitting area, ideal for those chilly evenings.

French doors lead to the rear decked area, with further seating at the front of the cottage, both ideal for enjoying a relaxing drink or a good book, whilst taking in the sounds and daily activities of the local wildlife.

Close by, Wigpool Common Nature Reserve, a SSSI, offers an abundance of flora, fauna and bird life which can be observed from areas around the common.

The pretty Forest of Dean village of Drybrook offers a range of amenities, including an excellent local butcher, Post Office and village store, a fish and chip shop and a local village pub.

The forest offers many stunning walks and cycle routes, which can be enjoyed from the doorstep of your delightful cottage.

About the location


Symonds Yat 8.5 miles; Gloucester 14.5 miles.

The charming village of Drybrook, a former royal hunting ground, lies in the heart of the Forest of Dean and offers visitors many amenities, including a village store and Post Office, butcher, fish and chip shop and village pub. The area boasts many Nature Reserves, the closest being Wigpool Common, a 19 acre SSSI, a great place for nature lovers to see many rare species of flora, fauna and birds. The Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers numerous trails that can be explored on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are all on offer for the more adventurous, whilst fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this unspoilt area. Drybrook is located close to the delightful market towns of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth, whose timbered Tudor buildings, striking 17th century market halls, majestic bridges, excellent shops, pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes, all make these areas a must to visit. Stroll along the banks of the beautiful River Wye, take a river cruise or view the stunning countryside from a hot air balloon! Explore Goodrich Castle, a perfect example of a 12th century 'Marcher Castle', or enjoy the renowned walks along Offa's Dyke and the Wye Valley Walk. Just a short drive away, in the historic waterfront city of Gloucester, you will find Roman foundations, Victorian Docklands and a spectacular Norman cathedral; you may recognise the Cloisters as they were used in the Harry Potter films. Visit Symonds Yat with its towering rock where peregrine falcons breed or The Severn Estuary, famous for its tidal bore and a great place for wildlife enthusiasts. A great Gloucestershire cottage for a memorable holiday at any time of year.
