Property code: 55961

Enjoying an elevated position overlooking the village of Lydbrook, this charming cottage offers a clever mix of both the old and new and is just perfect whatever the occasion or the time of year.

An enviable location within the heart of the Forest of Dean, on the fringes of a traditional village with shop and two pubs, is the ideal base to make the most of the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley. Great for thrill seekers with rock climbing and canoeing at Symonds Yat, Go Ape at Mallards Pike and mountain biking throughout the Forest of Dean and Black Mountains across the Welsh Border. Whatever the time of year you’ll be spoilt for choice with a vibrant events calendar, for foodies, festivals to include Abergavenny and Forest Showcase festival, for music lovers many of the smaller villages host festivals throughout the summer months. Not forgetting the Hay on Wye festival and Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Take a minute to take in the view across the roof tops of the village below before you step in inside. The dining room sympathetically restored with an original bread oven and warming colour scheme creating the perfect backdrop for a simple supper. Take a step into the lounge which has exposed beams and an inviting wood burner, again enjoying a warm interior that’s perfect for a cosy night in watching a movie or simply catching up with friends. The kitchen is situated to the rear of the cottage, a contemporary style with picturesque Mandarin tiles complementing the work tops. The space is well-equipped and ready to test the best of chefs with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice-compartment, dishwasher and washing machine. There is a bathroom with shower over bath and WC on this floor. When the day is done climb the cottage style stairs where you will find a king-size bedroom with en-suite shower and WC. The second bedroom is a king-size-zip-and-link(which can be made into a twin on request).

Take your morning coffee outside and enjoy the views, the gardens are enclosed with a table and chairs and BBQ. There is roadside parking.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This lovely property is set well above the road so has a very private feel to it. It stayed cool inside despite the heat and the garden was lovely to sit out in. The cottage is well decorated and clean and tidy with comfortable beds. The downstairs area is well appointed and the kitchen is well equipped.

Clean well equiped cosy cottage. Love the garden is private as we spent a lot of time sitting outside. The walk to the cottage up the path is not as bad as it sounds and the car was safe parked at the bottom and could be seen from the house. We would all come back again.

The property was first class, probably the best we have stayed in over the years of self catering. The facilities were great and the house lovely and warm when required.

Beautiful, immaculate cottage, sensitive restoration blending original features with modern, quality fittings. Warm, comfortable and welcoming. Possible to drive up the steepish hard surfaced track to unload by the gate then a good parking 'bay' off the road right opposite. Nice walk up the track into the forest plus wonderful autumn views from theRead more windows and garden. Short, cottage staircase might not suit everyone but a stout banister rail helps with support.

Car parking is not immediately adjacent to property down a steep track.Stairs would be a challenge for less able people. Otherwise a great cottage with all amenities and central for River Wye and forest attractions. Would stay again.

Great location for Forest of Dean and surrounds. Lydbrook village is however limited and the house parking is also restricted to a roadside layby on a busy road due to the elevated podition of the house on the steep sloping hillside. Access then on foot on a part made track. No issue for the fit and healthy but worth noting. The house itself is nicRead moree bar a vague feeling of damp in the downstairs in the evening.

Wonderful cottage in a fantastic location. Peaceful, private and cosy. Compact, but well laid out with some original features and a mix of modern design.

Sunnyside Cottage is well maintained & clean. The beds are comfortable with quality bedding. However, the 'cottage style stairs' are 'challenging'. The top treads slope downwards and could be hazardous for young children or anyone with a disability.
