Delightful cottage, owned by a very nice lady, in the small village of Ruarndean Woodside not far from Monmouth and Ross on Wye. Places of interest nearby are Gloucester and Gloucester Quays part in particular. Symonds Yat (West), Ross on Wye, Monmouth, Abergavenny, Hereford and a little further away is Hay on Wye for book lovers. Village shop 75 yards away.
Ruardean Woodside is an elevated village just outside Cinderford, and it's real Forest of Dean - friendly and genuine... There are woodland walks all around you, and you're within easy striking distance of towns, trails etc. I used the buses, which is a great way of seeing the area and meeting those who actually live here. The cottage itself is small and exquisitely maintained: it's efficient, comfortable, safe...and I didn't want to leave. Don't expect nightlife. Expect peace and quiet, and the warmth of a very special place. The Forest of Dean is unique.
