The perfect hideaway, Mill Cottage occupies an elevated position that one cannot drive to. A steep, narrow footpath, approximately 240 yards, leads to the cottage. Once at the cottage, the peaceful location offers a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Set within 1 acre of gardens, the views that can be enjoyed are spectacular. This semi-detached, period cottage was once a cider mill, and a donkey was used to transport the produce up and down the hill. The original cider press still has pride of place at the cottage.
The gardens are a particular feature of the property, and positioned at one side of the front garden is an area of suspended timber decking with a delightful summerhouse/unstocked bar, and has views across the tree lined valley. The greater area of land however extends rearwards from this area of garden, and comprises of a steeply sloping grassy bank with a wide variety of trees, species including walnut, a large old cider apple and a number of younger apple trees, together with hazel and others. Here, there is a pergola and further seating area, so the sunshine can be enjoyed all day long. Guests are welcome to pick the garden produce, which includes wild garlic, apples, plums, pears, gooseberries, blackcurrants, whitecurrants, strawberries and blackberries. This characterful holiday cottage has the additional benefit of a balcony room off the master bedroom.
Mill Cottage is situated in the Forest of Dean, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Enjoy the beautiful scenery of the forest and the many activities available in the area, including fabulous walking, cycling, golf, canoeing and family days out. Located 8 miles south of the market and tourist town of Ross-on-Wye, whilst Symonds Yat, Monmouth, Coleford, Gloucester and Hereford are all within easy striking distance.

    We had a wonderful time at the cottage. The walk from the road was an adventure every day (not fo the feint of heart) and the landscape breathtaking. The little games room was fab, the bathroom delightful ( spa bath!) and it was blissfully quiet. 5 mins drive from the Wye and Goodrich castle. There were some bits of kitchen equipment that if you're staying with a family would have been helpful (salad bowl, steak knives, somewhere for food storage), and the coffee machine took a little while to get the hang of. However, minor points. We would go back in a heart beat!

    had a great stay,the only thing is the long walk up to the cottage but they do mention this but is worth it ,the only thing is it takes about 45 mins or more to carry the stuff up, would nt fancy it if it was raining, and make sure you make time to carry the stuff back down at the end of the week. The cottage is well equipped , loved the cottage with a lovely kitchen diner and a really lovelly little library area were you can play a game, listen to music from the one of many dvds supplied. Great bathroom with a spa,and great main bedroom with great views and viewing area of the bedroom. Great garden for either exploring or just sitting and relaxing. Also loved the touch of a small bar in the garden, disappointed the lights didn't work though ,the heating in the house can be a bit confusing to put on may be instructions could be put somewhere, overall had a great stay

    The cottage itself was beautiful,very quirky. The gardens promised,seating areas,pond etc was a little disappointing,quite unkept and unfortunately had to spend a bit of time picking up doggie deposits that had been left around. We were fully aware of the walk up to the cottage,bearing in mind we are pretty fit and active (ran the Tewkesbury half marathon whilst staying there) we thought it would be ok......however it was extremely steep,patches of uneven ground and very narrow. One day of rain and walking up and down with the dogs was awful. Would be very difficult for a lot of people. On a positive there was nothing we wanted for In the cottage,very spacious compared to many.
