  • “Lydney was a very nice place to visit with a very handy supermarket and lovely walks in parkland and down to the quaint, historical harbour.”

    There was a good bus service to Gloucester and Chepatow. ...

    There was a good bus service to Gloucester and Chepatow. The apartment was comfortable, warm and well equipped. We had use of a lovely garden. The car parking area at the apartment was very good. However, the details of the apartment are correct in the booking site, but we don't think they give sufficient warning that the steps are rather awkward and would be quite unsuitable for anyone with mobility issues. That said, they caused us no problems at all. We also had a few niggles about the kitchen area. The freezer was caked with ice and we had difficulty both opening the door and storing frozen food in it: it needs a full de-frost. There were no instruction booklets for the microwave and the cooker. There was no suitable dish - such as a pyrex dish - for cooking vegetables in the microwave. All in all, we had a lovely holiday, blessed with glorious weather!

The property

This delightful first floor apartment is attached to the owner’s beautiful Georgian home, on the outskirts of the town of Lydney.

Set on a hillside with stunning views over the surrounding countryside and nearby town, this property is ideal for couples or a small family.

The apartment has its own private entrance and is tastefully furnished throughout, providing a lovely base for exploring the Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire countryside.

A cosy sitting room with a fabulous feature window seat, a luxurious sofa and an electric woodburner-effect stove is a superb place to sit and relax at the end of your day while admiring the panoramic views.

Prepare delicious home cooked meals in the separate fitted well-equipped kitchen which can then be enjoyed in the dining area.

Guests are free to wander around the shared grounds and sit and relax with a cool drink whilst planning your next days’ activities.

The beautiful countryside provides numerous activities including walking and cycling and great attractions such as the ever popular Puzzlewood, Chepstow Castle and the Dean Forest Railway.

Nearby are the historic market town of Monmouth and the cathedral city of Gloucester where you can browse a range of shops, visit historic remains and of course explore the Norman cathedral before enjoying a meal in one of the many pubs or restaurants.

About the location


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.
