    Had a fantastic week in a lovely cottage, cottage was spacious and well equipped and in a great location for some local attractions and sight seeing in the area. Les was very welcoming and tried to make our stay as pleasurable as possible, even taking our toddler to meet her tortoises and collect eggs from the chickens. Thanks for a great week!

About the location


Monmouth 7 miles.

The thriving village of Whitecroft lies on the southern edge of the Royal Forest of Dean. The village boasts a family-run shop, a fish and chip shop, two traditional village pubs and the historic Dean Forest Railway. The eerie caverns and ancient caves of Clearwell are just a short drive away, as are the Gloucestershire Way and Offa's Dyke footpath. The magnificent Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest, offers 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 riverside market town of Ross-on-Wye with its timbered Tudor houses, excellent shops and restaurants as well as the lovely towns of Monmouth, Ledbury and Symonds Yat are also close by. A perfect Forest of Dean holiday cottage in picturesque surroundings.
