Property code: 75596

Located in the heart of the Forest of Dean, Lydbrook has a well-stocked village store, an award-winning fish & chip shop, excellent Indian takeaway and two dog friendly, pubs. At the foot of the village, you’ll find the river Wye where you can enjoy a spot of fishing or have some fun in a canoe. With plenty of cycle trails and walks to take you deep into the ancient woods, Lydbrook is the perfect location for a forest adventure. The towns of Monmouth, Chepstow, Hay-on-Wye and Cheltenham are all within easy reach, so there’s always something happening throughout the year. For foodies, the Abergavenny and Forest Showcase festivals are a must. And with many of the local villages hosting summer festivals, music lovers will be kept entertained too.

A beautiful, well-equipped cottage. In an elevated position with views across a wooded valley. Ideal for families and couples wanting to discover the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley. Accessed from the village road via the original stone steps, this charming Victorian detached cottage, sits in an elevated position, just above a cluster of similar traditional cottages. The interior has been sympathetically restored but offers all the modern comforts you’d expect. The hand-made kitchen is finished with tongue and groove painted walls, solid ash worktops and comes fully equipped with an electric, induction hob range cooker, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment, dishwasher and washing machine. Just off the spacious kitchen, is one of two family bathrooms with a rain shower over a full-sized bath and WC. To the front of the cottage is the lounge, with two large comfy sofas, and a cosy snuggle sofa. Settle down for the evening in front of the 43-inch Smart TV and a wood burner. Open the French doors off the lounge, and you’ll discover a traditional wooden porch: a real suntrap - and the perfect retreat for unwinding with a good book. The dining room, also at the front of the cottage is tastefully, yet simply furnished with a large, French farmhouse table, games cupboard and classic Welsh slate fireplace. Original sash windows frame wonderful views across the valley from both the lounge and dining room. Upstairs, there are four generously sized bedrooms. One king-size, one double to the front with original fireplaces and beautiful valley views, and two further bedrooms to the rear: one with two single beds and suitable for children only. The other has a small double bed and is comfortably set up for one person only – perfect for a grandparent or a teenager. The upstairs bathroom has a rain shower over a full-sized bath and WC.

Outside, you can relax in an enclosed and private garden with a flagstone terrace and gravelled area. There’s a long wooden table with bench seating and a charcoal BBQ (available from April until the end of September). This pretty sun terrace is a perfect spot for relaxing and alfresco dining. Bikes can be safely stored at the cottage and there is plenty of unrestricted parking on the village road, just a short walk from the property (subject to availability).

Lovely spacious cottage in a good location close to all the main attractions in the Forest of Dean. Nice interior design and really clean. Kitchen is a good size with a good hob and oven. Separate dining room is also nice. Bedrooms are all a good size. Showers are good and easy to use. The outdoor terrace is a great space to barbeque or eat outsideRead more (weather permitting). Be aware access is via a steep drive or set of stairs only. Hide

Lydbrook Cottage is delightful. Spacious, comfortable and stylishly decorated. All the rooms are airy and bright. The outdoor space is cleverly arranged. The house is on quite a steep hill but there are two ways to access it, either up a drive or steps which run alongside the property. It sits in a quiet village, that has a shop, pub and fish & chiRead morep shop. Lots of beautiful walks are easily accessible with lots of public footpaths in the surrounding the area.

This was our second stay at the property. Such a home from home. The Forest of Dean and Wye Valley are easily accessible for long or short walks. We will be back again.

Lydbrook cottage was charming, spacious and tasteful, well-equipped and comfortable. The descriptions and pictures do not do it justice. Would not recommend it to anyone who struggles with steps or slopes but otherwise wonderful.

Beautiful cottage, with the perfect decoration, every tiny detail is worth admiring. Location is great in Dean forest and wye valley not far from the bracon beacon and Big pit mine. Plenty of nice walks, even from the cottage through the fields. We had amazing vacation and our teenage kids really enjoyed it too.

Lovely girls weekend in Lydbrook cottage - very comfortable and stylish home. Gorgeous evenings in front of fire chatting and catching up. Comfortable beds, fabulous shower and great location to get out and do things. We went to Gloucester quays and new hunt tack shop on Saturday and did Go Ape and lunch out on Sunday. Would recommend!
