The property

Hidden within the lively village of Mitcheldean you will find Ostlers.

This idyllic detached cottage offers a wonderful countryside retreat for couples or a small family of four, travelling with their canine companion.

Open up the delightful green cottage door and step inside the bright and airy open-plan living space, decorated with pretty neutral tones.

Take a seat on the stylish grey sofas and catch up with friends as you watch a movie on the flat-screen TV, and begin to plan exciting activities for your time in the area.

Wander over to the well-designed kitchen and begin to make tasty treats for a scenic picnic out in the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or whip up a mouth-watering family meal with the help of the contemporary electric oven.

Climb the staircase to the first floor and be greeted by a homey double bedroom boasting its very own en-suite shower room, so you can delight in an invigorating shower before grabbing your toasty towel from the heated rail and getting ready for the busy day ahead.

Across the way two pretty oak beds make a charming twin bedroom, ideal for guests who wish to escape from the excitement and enjoy some peace and quiet as they lose themselves in a dramatic book.

The first floor also features a contemporary shower room boasting a spacious double shower and stylish black tiles.

Spend time out in the courtyard whether it be on a warm summer's day as you bask in the sunshine, or on a crisp winter's morning as you sip on a warm cup of tea and watch as the dog plays happily in the space.

Be sure to pack your Waterproofs as there is so much for you to see and do during your time in the area.

Visit the majestic ruins of the 11th century Goodrich Castle, sitting proudly on the hilltops within the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or wander through the ancient King Arthur's Cave before a canoeing adventure on the Rive Wye.

Set out on the enchanting Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail or spend time with the family at the nearby Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo or the aMazing Hedge Puzzle located in Symonds Yat.For a thrill, visit The International Centre for Birds of Prey or if you are a train enthusiast, take a trip to the Dean Forrest railway.

Take the children to the local playground or grab your bikes for a relaxing yet scenic cycle.

Book Ostlers for the ultimate family holiday to the fantastic Forest of Dean.

About the location


Ross-on-Wye 6 miles; Gloucester 13 miles.

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.
