CLEAN MODERN BUNGALOW SURROUNDED BY FOREST

Lydbrook Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4 (+2)

Nestled betwixt the Severn & The Wye, neither Welsh nor quite English. An understated area of outstanding natural beauty, largely undiscovered by the masses – The Forest remains a playground whether your interest is industrial heritage, wildlife or outdoor pursuits – its got something for everyone.

Bookings can be made for a weekend (Friday 2pm until Monday 10 am), mid-week (2 pm Monday to 10 am Friday) or for the whole week (Saturday 2pm until the following Saturday morning 10am). Weekend or mid-week breaks set at 50% of the seasonal weekly rate.

Clean, Modern bungalow in the heart of the Forest.

Sleeps 4 (+2).

Pets Always Welcome.

Staying in the Forest: The ancient Forest of Dean – historically an industrial area which was founded in Roman times for iron-ore mining, sometimes being described as the “Sheffield of the South”. This however resulted in the large-scale decimation of the ancient forest, only to be replanted in the 1700s for planned future ship-building.

As former royal hunting grounds (still officially The Royal Forest of Dean), the area was extensively mined for coal in the 18th & early 19th centuries with industry in decline in the 20th century. The Forest of Dean is formally designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

With great access to birds, wildlife, canoeing, caving, cycling, walking or simply stunning countryside.

Please call to discuss your needs and we’ll point you in the right direction so you get exactly what you want from your countryside break.

LOVELY BUNGALOW IN GORGEOUS SURROUNDINGS

  • 5 of 5
Very pleasant bungalow with everything we needed for a long weekend in the Forest of Dean to visit family. Our little dog loved the garden as did we. Really enjoyed watching the goats and chickens next door from the kitchen window and all the birds. This was our second stay in this lovely bungalow. We hope to return again as soon as we can.

DOES WHAT IT SAYS ON THE TIN (OR WEBSITE!)

  • 5 of 5
A well presented, spacious, good value holiday rental that is well maintained and has everything you need. Worth noting that the main bedroom has space to take your travel cot. Don't forget your sheets as well as your duvet covers.

The owner was warm and friendly, as well as patient with the children.

As our daughters said "we had a lovely time" and "we liked feeding the goats".

HAPPY SUMMER STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We (a group of 6) stayed here for 4 days in Aug 2013 and loved this place. The bungalow was located near many attractions in the forest and quite easy to find. Many parking places. Beautiful garden. Rooms are large and clean. Shower and other equipments are well functioning. The kitchen is well equipped if you prefer to cook your own meal. Lastly, the owners are very kind and helpful.

We would be happy to recommend this property to others.

WELL PRICED BUDGET ACCOMMODATION

  • 3 of 5
The property was clean and very good value for money. Our three star rating reflects the budget category but everything you would require for a family stay is there. It is well also well located for the surrounding attractions and has off-street parking.
A particular thank you to Sid for taking it in good grace when our son put his football through a window!
If in the area we would certainly return.

Owner's Response: As you say, it's not 5-star (i.e. posh) accomodation but it is functional and clean and this is reflected in the relatively low price, but I am pleased that you felt it was good value for money & that you would come back. p.s. the window has now been repaired so no worries!

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
Excellent location, Bungalow very clean and well equipped with well kept gardens.
Maurice and his wife next door very helpful, and being on edge of woods was brilliant for walking with the dog.
Some decent eating houses in the area, and some not to good. (expensive for what it was)
Enjoyed the Mill Race eatery.about 7 miles away.
Would recommend any one to stay.

Owner's Response: Glad you found the facilities at The Hollies and the reception were to your satisfaction.
Sorry to hear that you felt some of the eateries wanting. The are many good ones in the locality so I guess checking out reviews might help avoid dissappointment.
