Mitcheldean is at the gateway to the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley and you’ll be surrounded by nature, heritage and if you want it; adventure! Known for its walks and outdoor activities, the area is home to such features as the Sculpture Trail, the Dean Heritage Centre and the scenic river at Symonds Yat where you can look for the nesting Peregrine Falcons or view the magnificent Tintern Abbey ruins.

The cosy kitchen/diner is well equipped with an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, coffee machine, fridge with ice box and washing machine. In the utility room there is a freezer. Completing the ground floor is the shower room with WC. Upstairs the attractive double bedroom with TV, has views to the village church. Stepping outside you will find the lovely enclosed walled cottage garden to the rear with patio area, seating and a lawn with established shrubs and plants. This is the perfect spot to enjoy a bit of al fresco dining and if you’re bringing your family pet on holiday with you, they will be secure too. There’s also a handy bike store.

Lovely cosy cottage with a very warm welcome. Big enclosed garden which our lurcher really enjoyed. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty to do and see in the area. We had a great week and would definitely book again.

Pratts Cottage, small but delightful. The cottage had easy to use heating and a wood burning stove (which we didn't need to put on). The layout is what it is and took no time at all to get used to. The kitchen is very well equipped and easy to get around. The owner left us a delightful welcome pack with fresh raspberries, grapes, cake, tea and coffRead moreee. Small bunches of flowers were in every room and added a lovely cosy feel to the place. The garden is fully enclosed, large and well kept. Hide

This is a very comfortable and well equipped property with a lovely enclosed garden and very dog friendly. The local shops are close at hand. The local pub is also close by, but unfortunately does not do food. There are 3 takeaways within a short walking distance. The Forest of Dean is a great area for walking.
