Set within the heart of a traditional village, this spacious single-storey annexe is just perfect for explorers whatever the time of year, offering access into the Forest for both walking and cycling.

The peaceful village of Coalway is a perfect base for exploring the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley. You are well-served by foot with a village store and local pub within walking distance. For walkers and cyclists, you can access a network of Forest tracks for walking, mountain biking and cycling from the village, along with a flat walk into the pretty market town of Coleford where you will find a selection of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. For a little more adventure, you can enjoy rock climbing, caving and canoeing at Symonds Yat, Go Ape at Mallards Pike, and the downhill mountain biking tracks at Sallow Vallet. Other attractions include Clearwell Caves, Hopewell Colliery, Puzzlewood, and Perrygrove Railway. The annexe, formally a village shop, is set to the side of a traditional cottage.

Step inside to a spacious hall and passageway with a cupboard for coats and boots. From the far end of the passageway, you can access the lounge, a generous room enjoying natural light from the bay windows. Here you can relax after a day exploring, enjoy a movie on the TV, board games or a good book. There is a dining table and chairs that’s perfect for two. The kitchen is situated off the passageway, well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and washer/dryer. The bedroom is situated off the passageway, a spacious double enjoying a front aspect. There is also a bathroom with a bath and handheld shower, and a separate WC. Please note that there is a slope within the passageway.

Outside, an established garden, which is accessed via the owner's garden, with a secluded area offers a place to sit and dine or enjoy the afternoon sun. There is off-road parking for one car along with secure bike storage and storage space for canoes.

***** Beautiful holiday accommodation; immaculate and spotless! Lovely owners also. The bed was extremely comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and the bath and over-bath shower was great and had a separate room for toilet and washbasin. Home from home feel. Perfect location for exploring the Forest Of Dean with a short walk into open woodland. MoRead morest of the tourist attractions are within a 10 to 15 minute drive. Off road parking safe and secure. Will 100% book again when in the area. Hide

Spacious, comfortable, and very well equipped. Good location for exploring both the Forest and the surrounding area to the east. The local shop is a Co-op and well stocked with basic foods, ie fine for everyday eating but not gourmet. Another reviewer says that the traffic noise was a problem. It wasn't.

Very comfortable cottage with only one minor quibble re bedroom curtains. Everything was provided for our stay and the location was perfect for touring. We were quite content but younger visitors might bemoan the poor mobile signals in the area. We would certainly consider staying again as the hosts were so welcoming.

Very comfortable, clean and well equipped accommodation. Helpful literature on local area, and enjoyed jigsaws! Pleasant hosts. If cold weather is expected, would recommend taking slippers as tiled floors in kitchen and bathroom are cool. Beautiful garden laid to lawn with spring bulbs. Off street parking.

A lovely little cottage, well-equipped, in a very nice area. The owners live next door (the house is actually attached) and are very friendly and helpful.

If you're a light sleeper, bring some earplugs too - the cars passing on the road were quite loud! Hide

This was one of the most well equipped cottages we have stayed at. A pub and convenience store about 10 minutes walk and a good stroll into Coleford if you wanted. Friendly and welcoming owners and a very comfortable cottage. Off road parking. A very good base to explore the surrounding area, a perfect getaway.
