Beside a quiet country lane on the edge of the tiny village of Awre and close to the River Severn where it makes a large loop south of Gloucester, Rose Cottage is very well-positioned for exploring this lovely area. Equipped and furnished to an exceptional standard, the spacious accommodation affords a welcoming and comfortable base with a big ‘farmhouse’ kitchen, a delightful conservatory and very attractive patio and garden at the back of the house. Upstairs, two of the bedrooms are particularly large and one of them has a view of the river beyond the fields.

The whole region is full of interest and a paradise for the outdoor enthusiast. The Severn Way runs close to the river and all the activities of the Forest of Dean are nearby – wonderful walking country, as well as cycling and riding on marked trails. Canoeing and fishing are available on the River Wye, and fascinating glimpses of history can be found in places such as Clearwell Caves (still-active ochre mines) and the beautiful ruins of Tintern Abbey. Further afield the Welsh border castles can be explored during a day out, as can the cathedral city of Gloucester and the Cotswolds beyond. Steam train enthusiasts will love the Dean Forest Railway which runs from Lydney to Parkend.

Visitors to Rose Cottage will feel immediately at home in this tranquil location and as well as making full use of the spacious indoor rooms, will find the large one and a half acre garden a wonderful place to relax and unwind at the end of an energetic day.

What our guests say


We loved it here, the house was spacious, beautifully equipped, peaceful, the garden enormous with the most incredible views, so tranquil and just what our family were hoping for and more. There was our two year old granddaughter, myself, my husband and the little one's mummy and daddy, we also had a visitor for the day to join us who was equally enthralled at where we were staying. A lovely welcome basket awaiting our arrival and there was nothing more we need, a great utility for walking boots and coats with excellent shower. Loved the orangery for eating in and of course outside as we were so lucky with the weather. We want to return and hopefully we shall next year.

Perfect hideaway for a girlie getaway!!

We booked this delightful cottage for a girlie get-together and cannot recommend it too highly. It's picture perfect, chocolate box from the outside and inside is a series of wonderful, characterful, tasteful living spaces with every mod con to make a stay here an exceptionally comfortable 'home from home'. We had the light filled conservatory with views across buttercup meadows to the hills where we could share a glass of bubbly before immersing ourselves in the hot tub, we had the elegant lounge for pre-dinner drinks before sitting together in the dining alcove. We cooked together in well-equipped spacious kitchen and really struggled to force ourselves to go out and explore the area. None of us had ever visited this area of the country before and can't believe how beautiful it is - completely unspoilt with cosy pubs, impressive restaurants and so much to see and do including a foray into Wales! We're thinking there may be a return reunion to this gem of a place.

Beautiful, clean and welcoming pet-friendly cottage

The location is great - off the beaten track, peaceful, but within easy reach of the Forest of Dean and all the exciting activities to see and do, as well as local towns for supermarkets. Pet-friendly and secure (gates to prevent our labrador wandering off!). Set within easy walking distance to the village. We found everyone to be so friendly and the local cider was lovely. The owner has thought of everything - fresh towels / tea towels / dish clothes / soap / dishwasher tablets / full log basket, etc. We were very impressed with how well equipped the cottage was - home from home. The decor was superb and tastefully done. Initially we had decided against the hot tub hire, but we arrived to it all set up and couldn't resist! It really was worth it after a days walking being able to come back for a soak was superb and watch the sun set with those gorgeous views. We would definitely recommend this cottage and I would love to stay here one day again soon! Thank you.

All excellent

Our extended family all had a very special stay at Rose Cottage. The accommodation is spot on, the garden excellent and the location is both easily accessible and within reach of the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean. Flawless!

What a gem!

Rose Cottage is beautifully presented. We had a great week exploring the local areas and had many a relaxing afternoon in the wonderful garden, playing badminton and cricket. Thank you
