The property

An enchanting, white-washed cottage, dating back to 1860, this characterful abode can be found resting in an idyllic position in Ruardean, on the outskirts of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Jessamine Cottage is a beautiful stone-built holiday home, in the perfect position for a couple seeking a rural and romantic retreat in Gloucestershire.

Enter into the charming living/dining room and settle down on the sofa as you surround yourself with the character of the room; boasting exposed stone walls and rustic beams, you can find evidence of the cottage's history around every corner.

Once you've spent some time relaxing in front of the Smart TV step into the amply-equipped kitchen to prepare an evening snack, modest in size but with a good range of utensils and appliances, you'll be sure to whip up a romantic meal in no time.

Enjoy your meal times at the dining table tucked beneath the wooden staircase, or head outside and dine alfresco as you watch the sunset over the countryside.

Make your way upstairs and enjoy a relaxing soak in the bath before bed, the king-size bed conveniently doubling up as a twin on request, this snug spot offers a beautiful skylight window so you can watch the stars from the comfort of the covers.

The local village is remote yet offers all you could need in terms of amenities including a Post Office with a village shop and a pub where you can enjoy a rewarding beverage after a day of rambling in the Forest of Dean.

Enjoy everything the Forest of Dean has to offer such as Symonds Yat Rock, Puzzlewood, Clearwell Caves and the Forest of Dean Sculpture trail.

The surrounding area is home to a fantastic range of facilities to suit all ages and tastes, with a plethora of watersporting opportunities from Canoeing, cycling and abseiling to wild swimming, to falconry experiences, gorge scrambling and so much more, not forgetting the plentiful walking and cycling routes and bridleways to explore.

Head to Hereford to discover its rich history, with attractions such as its 7th century cathedral, chained library popular for its feature in Game of Thrones, Black and White House Museum, Cider Museum and so much more!

Visit Gloucester with its picturesque docks, scatter of museums and good selection of eateries, or spend a day unwinding from the comfort of Jessamine Cottage.

About the location


Mitcheldean 4.5 miles; Cinderford 3.5 miles; Monmouth 10 miles; Gloucester 16 miles.

The village of Ruardean is situated on the northern edge of 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.
