Newnham on Severn, Forest of Dean & Wye Valley Cottages
As the name suggests, The Cider Barn is a former cider barn, now beautifully converted and offering bright and spacious accommodation throughout. It really is a fabulous retreat away from the stresses and strains of everyday life with plenty of little details providing guests with maximum comfort during their stay.
Sitting in a stunning location, the semi-detached stone barn overlooks the rolling landscape around it and the River Severn in the distance. Perfect for all the activities on offer in the area, the property is located in a small village on the south eastern border of the Forest of Dean and is also on the edge of woodland with easy and immediate access to the many paths criss-crossing the woodland.
Entrance through glass doors into:
Large Living Area with tiled floor, two sofas, brick fireplace with wood burning stove and TV, Dining Area with small, rectangular table and Kitchen Area with oven, hob, microwave and French windows to attractive private patio.
Bedroom One, large and light, with double bed (4ft 6), sofa, chest of drawers, TV and lovely views.
Ensuite Shower Room.
The Cider Barn is approached along a brick path to a small garden area and entrance to the cottage. On the other side there is a sunny, bricked patio with garden furniture. The owners of the cottage keep hens (and a cockerel!) and several of the surrounding properties are smallholdings, giving a very pleasant rural feel to the whole area.
Sorry no pets. No smoking. Unsuitable for young children. On-site apiary - there is an array of fully working beehives.
The Cider Barn is set in attractive position overlooking rolling landscape and the River Severn in the distance. The property is semi-detached and part a converted cider barn lying in a small village 3 miles north on Newnham on Severn on the south eastern border of the Forest of Dean.
The city of Gloucester with its impressive cathedral and historic docks is 12 miles away. For those keen on outdoor activities the choice is immense - walking on Offa`s Dyke, cycling or riding in the Forest itself and fishing or canoeing on the River Wye.
Further afield but still readily accessible are the Cotswolds (Cheltenham is not far away), the Malvern Hills and the Brecon Beacons. The property is also on the edge of woodland with easy local access to forest paths.
"Cottage was like home from home."Sikorski 2018-05-02
"Set high in the stunningly beautiful Forest of Dean with the garden overlooking the majestic river Severn, it would be difficult to imagine a more idyllic spot to 'chill out'. No traffic noise and only the rustle of the wind through the trees to disturb the silence. We stayed at apple blossom time and so took very many photographs but the location is breathtaking at any part of the year. On arriving, we were greeted by very friendly hosts who we never saw again, (except by coincidence). There was a welcome pack of provisions including a loaf of local gorgeous bread and we found the kitchen to be well stocked with tools and electrical gadgets which all worked. The well stocked DVDs and book library was brilliant and we look forward to returning again for another wonderful holiday."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-05-10
"A great property in a super location. Many varied things around to do. The cottage was very well equipped and the owners couldn't have been more helpful."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-04-18
