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.

Overall a charming cottage with quirky features and plenty of room for 4 adults plus a baby and dog. Location was good to get to activities and walks. The cottage style stairs are very steep & uneven and my Mum ending up falling down them on the last morning so be aware that may cause issues.

Lovely place to stay with lots of beautiful walks close by and places to visit. Heard the long eared owl call most nights. Will have to return as we didnt have time to go searching for beaver.

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. We put the heating on most nights to rectfy this even though it was August. Hide
