Newnham on Severn, Forest of Dean & Wye Valley Cottages
The Cider Barn rests in an attractive rural location, offering bright and spacious accommodation which has been thoughtfully arranged throughout. The semi-detached converted cider barn overlooks rolling landscape and the River Severn in the distance. The property is located in a small village on the south eastern border of the Forest of Dean, and it is also on the edge of woodland with easy local access to forest paths.
The entrance is through glass doors to large living area with tiled floor, pot-bellied woodburning stove and comfortable seating. Fitted kitchen at one end with dining table for two. French windows to attractive private patio.
Wooden stairs to small landing and thence straight into large, light double bedroom (4ft 6 bed) with long views.
En suite 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 bee hives.
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.
"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
