Our cottages are located in a quiet courtyard setting in the ancient Royal Forest of Dean, three miles from the riverside town of Lydney, Gloucestershire. Away from traffic and noise, reached along our own private driveway, our cottages are perfectly positioned for exploring the abundant wildlife and fauna of the Forest.

Walkers and cyclists of all ages enjoy the miles of footpaths and cyclepaths which criss-cross the Forest of Dean. The Forest of Dean is a dog's paradise and dogs are welcome in several of our cottages. We also have some cottages which we keep pet-free.

The Forest of Dean is famous amongst keen cyclists for its excellent mountain bike and downhill trails which are being extended all the time. The family cycle path follows an old railway line, ideal for a leisurely ride for the whole family.

Children love Puzzlewood, Go Ape, Clearwell Caves and a ride on the Dean Forest Steam Railway or at Perrygrove Miniature Railway with its treehouses and secret passageways. The Forest of Dean is bordered by two rivers - The Severn - try surfing the world famous Severn Bore, and The Wye where canoeing, kayaking and boat rides are readily available.

The magnificent Tintern Abbey beside the River Wye, the Castle at Chepstow and the Cathedral at Gloucester are popular historic sites.
