Nestled in an enchanting wooded valley with a stream meandering through the property you’ll find Woodpecker Cottage - the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the tranquility and abundance of nature! And what better way to finish the day exploring the Forest of Dean and nearby Wye Valley than to take a relaxing soak in the hot tub soothed by the sounds of the babbling brook…
Woodpecker cottage is a well-equipped detached single storey cottage which sleeps 2. With so many walks and cycle tracks direct from the cottage, it’s the perfect base for a walking/cycling holiday (we have a secure lock-up for bikes). It is also the ideal spot for holidaying with your four legged friends!

Tastefully decorated with character features, the cottage is light and spacious. The accommodation comprises a large open plan living/dining area with sofa, dining table and chairs. The focal point of the room is the wood-burning stove, perfect to settle down in front of after a busy day exploring our wonderful Forest of Dean! There is a fully equipped modern kitchen which includes oven, microwave, induction hob, dishwasher, fridge and washer dryer. There is a king size bedroom (travel cot available) and ensuite bathroom. All rooms overlook the idyllic island gardens and provide the perfect place to watch the wonderful array of birdlife visiting the bird feeders and gardens. The property has WiFi and Smart TV.
