    “The cottage is beautiful, comfortable, cozy and well appointed.”

    Good location with convenient access to the Forest of Dean as well as to the main route to Gloucester or South Wales and the owners are wonderful, gracious and approachable but never intrusive. I would use this listing again without hesitation.

The property

Rodley Manor Retreat is a charming dwelling attached to the owner's main house, Bloemuns, at the end of a lane.

It is a former annex to the main property, which was originally a cottage belonging to Rodley Manor Farm.

The Farm was half a mile away and is now demolished.

The owners decided to name the annex Rodley Manor Retreat to retain a part of family history.

It is situated on the outskirts of the bustling town of Lydney with far-reaching views of the Severn Estuary.

The well-appointed property is ideal for couples or solo visitors seeking to spend some time exploring the Royal Forest of Dean and surrounding area.

Internally the property enjoys bags of character with the exposed beams, exposed stone walls and wooden and stone floors complementing the eclectic furnishings within each room.

The kitchen comes with all the essentials you could possibly need to cater for yourself for a long or short break.

The charm of the interior is continued into the sitting room where you can curl up on the L-shaped sofa and tune into the wall-mounted large television.

About the location

LYDNEY

Chepstow 9 miles, Monmouth 12 miles; Gloucester 20 miles; Chelttenham 27 miles; Bristol; Cardiff 41 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.
