Description

Explore this AONB, with scenic walks for all abilities within easy reach of this property.

Situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, these two detached barn conversions (refs W43364 and W43365) are spaced away from each other in the grounds of the owner’s 13th-century farmhouse. From this tranquil setting, visitors can explore the unique Royal Forest of Dean, enjoyable in all seasons, and the Lower Wye Valley, the magnificent borderland between England and Wales. Stunningly beautiful, there is a diverse range of places to visit that cater for all ages and tastes. The variety of scenery, wealth of historic attractions and selection of way-marked paths makes this area excellent walking country that offers a paradise for serious hikers, ramblers or after lunch strollers. The hamlet of Stowe, dating back to the 5th century, is a mile or so distant from Clearwell, with its famous caves, the magical Puzzlewood, as featured in BBC programmes ’Dr Who’ and ’Atlantis’, and the historic village of St Briavels, with its ancient, moated castle. Tintern, renowned for its impressive abbey, the cathedral cities of Gloucester and Hereford, the Cotswolds, Malvern and the Welsh Hills are all within easy driving distance. Coleford is 3 miles, Lydney 6 miles, Monmouth 7 miles, Chepstow 10 miles and Ross-on-Wye 15 miles. Several golf courses nearby. Shop, pub and restaurant 1.5 miles.

    Lovely, quirky and creaky one-of-a-kind cottage, just the way we like it - if a bit on the small side. Very conveniently located for those wishing to explore the Forest of Dean. Shops are to be found in Lydney or Coleford, a drive of about 15 min. It's on the first floor (so not suitable for everybody) of a very old and impressive building with immense grinding stones just below you. Gotta love those beams! Two bedrooms, one with double bed (definitely in need of a new mattress) and one with 2 singles. Tiny bathroom with a good shower. The kitchen and living room share the same space, which works fine. Equipped with practically all of the stuff one needs (except for a dishwasher). Apparently there's a limited daily amount of hot water to be had. Good off-road parking space. The road which runs past the property is not a very busy one, mostly used by commuters, we assume. Nice garden is accessed via an arch and offers enough space to sit and to relax. It should be noted that mobile phone use is very limited due to a weak signal, as it is for the surrounding area with a radius of some 3 miles. The owner is a very friendly and helpful lady.

    Lovely location, great base from which to explore the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean. No wifi or mobile signal available at the property which for us added to the peace and tranquility of the location. Lovely owners and very helpful and knowledgeable. Only very slight negative is the enterance/exit of the property when exiting the visibility onto the lane is non existent so you have to edge out very carefully.
