    It’s very well equipped and super clean. I can’t think of anything else we’d want from a holiday cottage. It’s perfectly placed for so many activities, which for us included a Forest Segway ride, a great family friendly mountain biking route, a canoe down the River Wye, a steam train ride, archery, tree climbing, zip wiring...we were certainly not bored! The grounds of the accommodation allowed us to play rounders and boules with plenty of space to share with the neighbours. We also did some great nature walks around the lake - beautiful! Oh, and how’s this for service - I enquired with the owners about EV charging and they very promptly fitted an 11kw tethered charger ahead of our stay - no range anxiety for us!! We’d stay here again in a flash. Clean, beautiful, well equipped and perfectly placed.

The property

The Old Mill is an outstanding holiday home is simply superb surroundings.

A fabulously spacious home set off the beaten track hidden behind private gates, it is the perfect choice for a family or group of friends.

Inside you'll be bowled over by the charming architectural features such as the exposed timbers and beams and brickwork.

Especially appealing is the large, open plan kitchen diner, the heart of the home, which has great views across the garden.

The owners have carefully and lovingly created a tour de force and we absolutely love it -no expense has been spared in the use of high quality, natural building materials adding to the luxurious feel.

We were also drawn to the glass-fronted balcony which overlooks the courtyard and grassed areas.

Fancy fly fishing?!.

Well there is a private lake about 500 yards away where guests can fish for free to catch Rainbow and Brown trout, and keep one or two for the BBQ!

It really is that delightful that you'd be hard pressed for a more relaxing, beautiful retreat in Gloucestershire.

All in all, prepare for any expectations you have before you come to be exceeded!

For larger parties, The Old Mill is can be rented alongside 988895 -The Old Dairy (adjacent at right angles) making accommodation for up to ten guests.

There is ample dining space to seat ten guests in The Old Mill.

About the location

CINDERFORD

Ross-on-Wye 8.6 miles; Gloucester 15 miles; Cheltenham 22 miles.

Cinderford is set in an elevated position in the Forest of Dean and has views out across the River Severn. With a good range of local amenities including shops, pubs and an open air market and cinema, Cinderford is a lovely base from which to begin your explorations of the area. Close by is the magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering numerous trails that can be explored on foot, bicycle or horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are on offer for the more adventurous, while fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this unspoilt area. Just a short drive away, in the historic waterfront city of Gloucester, you will find Roman foundations, Victorian Docklands and a spectacular Norman Cathedral (whose cloisters were used as a location in the Harry Potter films). Visit the historic market town of Ross-on-Wye, with timbered Tudor houses and excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, in the heart of rural Herefordshire. Cheltenham is just over 20 miles away and is home to the renowned Cheltenham Festival, 4 days of horse jump racing culminating in the Gold Cup, held annually in March at Cheltenham Racecourse. The Severn Estuary, famous for its tidal bore, is a delight for bird watchers, wildlife enthusiasts and bore surfers alike. This unspoilt area has something to offer at any time of the year.
