The Orchard Wagon is nestled in a cider orchard in the Wye Valley. The location is a paradise for nature lovers and walkers. The spacious Orchard Wagon has been hand-crafted with many beautiful features. It sleeps two people. From the bed there is a gorgeous view over the orchard and hills. There is a wood burner so it is a cosy place to stay all year round. The terrace has a seating area and faces the setting sun. There is a well equipped simple kitchen with cooker, sink, cool box, and crockery and utensils. There is a comfortable double bed, and a dining area by the woodburner. The Wagon has mains electricity and has electric lighting and plug sockets. There is no phone signal or wifi so you can completely get-away-from-it-all and unwind in nature. A perfect place for a digital detox. ...The Orchard Wagon is nestled in a cider orchard in the Wye Valley. The location is a paradise for nature lovers and walkers.

A perfect place for a digital detox. The Orchard Wagon is set on a two acre smallholding. At night you can hear the owls hooting and see incredible night stars as there is very little light pollution. There is a fire pit beside the Wagon for enjoying a camp fire. The Wagon is surrounded by apple trees and in the apple season you can practically reach out of the window and pick a ripe apple! The toilet and hot shower is located approximately 70 metres from the Orchard Wagon, and is shared with other guests. The orchard is a working apple juice and cider orchard, making 'King of the Pippins' juice, which you can enjoy while you are here. The area is a ideal for nature lovers and walkers. There are miles of woodland and riverside walks from the door, with no need to drive. Several nice pubs are in walking distance. We are walking distance to the River Wye for kayaking and wild swimming, 10 minutes drive to the lovely market town of Monmouth and 20 minutes drive from the Forest of Dean. More
