Perry Pear Cottage, Forest of Dean. Views from every window, woodburner

Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Mitcheldean, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, England
A newly opened (July 2018) clean and comfortable detached holiday cottage with views over fields, countryside and woodland from every window. The cottage is a conversion of an old outbuilding 'where the cider mill donkey once lived' and is located in an area of similar smallholdings along a lane.

The property is literally 'off the beaten track' and overlooks an old Perry Pear orchard/field where sheep and alpacas graze (usually there but can't guaranteed). There is an abundance of wildlife from woodpeckers, buzzards and swallows to foxes, badgers and squirrels.

Wood burner for those cosy winter days and patio doors opening onto the field for hot summer days.

Enclosed garden with lawn and companion seating to enjoy the views

There is direct access to forest walks from the property and Mitcheldean is within 20 minu...

About the neighbourhood
The property is situated on the fringe of the Statutory Forest. It has a unique history. Originally a bonfire was lit to claim the land and the Perry orchard was planted. Eventually the land was subject to the Enclosure Act, a unique Act to the Forest of Dean and bought from the crown in the early 1800's. The field patterns in the lane are reflective of the original squatter settlements many still used as smallholdings.

Further afield there are many historical and cultural visitor attractions from Dean Heritage Centre to Clearwell Caves.
There are also many activity attractions from canoeing along the River Wye (we recommend), to cycle hire and cycle paths and a local cookery school.

There are plenty of forest walks and wildlife.
Getting around
There are an abundance of forest footpaths and walks directly from the property. St Antony's Well is at the end of the lane and where there plentiful bluebells in the spring/early summer.

The majority of visitor attractions in the Forest of Dean are within 20 mins by car. Our favorites are May Hill, Symonds Yat.

Further afield are the towns of Ross on Wye and across the border, Monmouth. There are a number of bus routes from Mitcheldean to neighbouring towns and villages.
