    When we arrived, we were greeted by the friendly owners, who were very informative and helpful, our surprise was it was much bigger than we expected, it's an ideal location for exploring the Wye valley and Forest of Dean. We had a truly great time there, we both loved it so much, we stayed in most nights and had meals looking over the glorious views. The only let down was the lack of hot water in the bath, but in our opinion, this is worth putting up with, for what you get here is fantastic. We would definatley visit again.

Attached to the owner's farmhouse, this cottage has been thoughtfully furnished throughout, to provide spacious accommodation ideal for a romantic break, walking holiday or getaway filled with outdoor activities.

Outside guests can relax in the rear garden with lovely views, enjoy alfresco dining in the courtyard or spend some time chatting over a refreshing drink in the summerhouse.

The ancient village of Ruardean is just one mile away which has a good village pub, shop and post office.

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.
