Holiday Rental House
The perfect setting for a romantic retreat where you can relax and unwind in this wonderful part of the country. As featured in The Guardian 'Five best ... forest cottages' October 11th 2008. The Granary in the beautiful Forest of Dean between the River Wye and River Seven, has been converted, retaining its original 18th century charm, into a beautiful self-contained romantic getaway. The balcony with its private hot tub benefits from 180' views of open country side and is west facing. You can take long relaxing walks in the forest right from the back door, or perhaps take part in more energetic activities such as horse riding, canoeing or mountain biking; just some of the opportunities available in this popular part of Gloucestershire an area of outstanding Natural Beauty.

Particularly if you are coming straight from work and arriving late. All details on the booking form.
