Lilac Cottage is an archetypal two bedroomed Forest of Dean stone cottage. Built around 1890 to house the family of a forestry worker, it now provides modern day luxury for that perfect get away holiday. The Forest of Dean occupies some 35 square miles of protected forest, Lilac Cottage sits in a small hamlet in the centre. Surrounded by stunning woodland it is walking distance to the village of Parkend, the RSPB centre at Nagshead, and is adjacent to the cycling track that winds its way through the Forest.
The cottage is designed to provide a relaxed high quality home from home feel. The log burner, decoration, lighting and comfy furniture coupled with the cosy bedrooms all combine to provide the perfect environment for a restful break. If activity is more the focus, then there is for example, extensive walking; cycling, including easy through to extreme runs; canoeing on the Wye or the more gentle pursuits of bird watching at any of the three local RSPB sites; a visit to the steam railway; and much more. . .
The historic town of Monmouth, some 25 mins away, offers a great day out with interesting museums, buildings and churches balanced with excellent restaurants and shopping. There are also many ancient sites to explore in the region - the Welsh border castles, Tintern Abbey, the cathedral city of Gloucester - while the Cotswolds, Brecon Beacons and the Malvern Hills are all within easy driving distance.

Lovely cozy cottage in an ideal location for cycling and walking in the forest
Ideally located for an active break in the forest. Very warm and cozy with everything you need. The fire is lovely and makes a great focal point on cooler evenings. Cycle from the door on paths and tracks in the forest. Great week away.
Lovely cosy cottage, everything you need, very comfy beds, Louise the owner checked all was ok and very friendly, it's a must to visit xx
Stunning Cottage and Location
We had a lovely relaxing break in a stunning location. The cottage is immaculate, well equipped and so comfortable. There are beautiful walks on your doorstep and excellent pubs within easy walking distance.
There were lots of little touches that made the cottage extra special for us and for the dogs. The bowl of water by the door ready for the dogs after the journey made us feel immediately that we were all welcome.
Can't thank Louise enough for allowing us to borrow her home for a few days. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be back.
Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings
We had a lovely week in the beautiful Forest of Dean. This comfortable, well equipped cottage is right in the middle of the forest and within walking distance of the village. Louise was the perfect host and all the little extras were a lovely touch. We will definitely be back.
