  • “The website states that it is all ground floor in the headline but this in incorrect.”

    Only the kitchen is on the ground floor, the rest of the accommodation is on the first floor which is not clear from the detailed description. Our in car sat nav didn't recognise the smaller roads in the immediate vicinity so you need to carefully read the instructions in the booking details. Some of the lanes are extremely narrow so care is needed. Having said that the facilities are good and the recliner sofa was particularly welcome after a long walk!

    Only the kitchen is on the ground floor, the rest of the accommodation is on the first floor which is not clear from the detailed description. Our in car sat nav didn't recognise the smaller roads in the immediate vicinity so you need to carefully read the instructions in the booking details. Some of the lanes are extremely narrow so care is needed. Having said that the facilities are good and the recliner sofa was particularly welcome after a long walk! The rooms were clean and nicely decorated and the bed was quite comfy. Overall we were pleased with the accommodation and enjoyed our stay in this lovely spot of Gloucestershire. We found plenty to do in the vicinity so were happy with our stay.

The property

Littledean 1.5 miles.

This quaint, countryside cottage can be found resting amongst the beauty of the Wye Valley, encompassed by a range of natural wonders and stunning scenery.

Attached to the owner's property, this abode is the perfect base for a holiday as a family of four or a romantic escape to this wonderful area of Gloucestershire.

Enter into the kitchen/diner and begin your relaxing retreat with a warming cup of coffee, as you sit around the table together and plan your fun-filled activities for the days ahead; although modest, this room holds every essential you could need to prepare a lovingly-made meal.

Moving through into the living/dining room you can find a more spacious spot to enjoy your home-cooked meals, with the windows here providing wondrous views of the countryside lands outside.

Relax into your evening in one of the inviting sofas, with the television providing your entertainment for the evening, being sure to bring your favourite DVDs from home to watch together!

Enjoy a relaxing rinse in the shower at the end of each day of adventure, before choosing from one of two bedrooms to snuggle up in; comprised of both a double and a bunk room, both with a homely aura and ample storage space, the sleeping arrangements in the cottage are perfect for a family of four.

Outside you can enjoy your luscious settings by sitting out in the summer months and enjoying a barbecue alfresco style, the sheep in the neighbouring fields offering you a truly rural experience while you bask beneath the sun amidst the refreshing countryside breeze.

Explore your surroundings by taking the nearby footpath up into the forests, where you can experience an array of wonderful attractions amongst magnificent walking and cycling routes and a plethora of nature waiting to be discovered; take to the skies on a Go Ape Adventure in the Forest of Dean, with its extensive zip wires, treetop challenges and segways to explore these luscious lands, there's so much excitement to be found here, or take the Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail, linking different site-specific sculptures while leading you around four and a half miles of unique lands and the wondrous works of artists.

For all of your local amenities, take a trip to charming Littledean, hosting a Post Office, local store and two welcoming pubs, it holds all you could need for a self-catered stay amongst its rich Roman history apparent in its fortifications on the hillside.

Visit Ross-on-Wye and enjoy a leisurely stroll around the River Wye, with its traditional black and white timbered buildings housing a good selection of shops and eateries, as well as offering easy access to the River Severn Estuary where you can experience wonderful bird life and wildlife like no other.

Spend a day in Gloucester for its fantastic shopping experiences and its rich and enticing history, or enjoy a day at Cheltenham faces for a family day out to remember.
