    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
    Reached by a woodland track from a country lane and standing on its own in an attractive clearing by a trout pond, which is fed by a small stream, The Old Pumphouse is a real 'hideaway'. Three miles from the small town of Lydney, the property is within easy distance of all the attractions of the Forest of Dean, the Wye Valley and the Border castles (Chepstow is 9 miles away). The whole area is ideal for walkers and cyclists and the owners have made special footpaths through the surrounding woods for the particular use of guests. The Estate also has a craft centre, a model village, a garden centre and a wholefood restaurant, 2 miles away.

    The building was converted in 1997, creating large, light and airy spaces and has undergone further refurbishment, making it a highly desira...

The pump house feels as if it's well off the beaten track but it's still very accessible. It's very peaceful and surrounded by trees (Lydney estate). Driving up the lane one evening we saw a heard of deer crossing in front of us heading into the forest. How cool is that.
Lydney house is only open for two months in the spring and well worth a visit. the Roman settlement is particularly impressive, as is the museum attached to the house. (the cakes in the tea room are mouth watering and well worth sampling). the formal gardens are extensive and full of colour this time of year.
The pump house is spacious and well appointed. Very well presented, clean and tidy. They had even laid the fire for us. The beds are very very comfortable.
A fantastic place.

We had a wonderful time, there was a welcome basket of fruit and essential items to get our stay off to a very comfortable start, also a phone call to make sure everything was ok.The house is stunning,spotlessly clean, ,all the bedrooms are lovely ,the kitchen is very well equipped with everything we needed .The lounge area was so comfortable, with a glorious log fire and a more than sufficient supply of logs ,totally relaxing, the dogs loved it .after the lovely long walks in the surrounding forest..It is set in its own forest and the dogs were able to walk freely..We had some stunning walks in the forest surrounding the house.A truly magical place ,we cant wait to go back. more
