About the neighbourhood
The forest of Dean has been populated at least since Roman times and is of great historic interest retaining vestiges of its varied past as a centre for charcoal-burning, iron and coal mining and forestry.

The cottage is situated right next to the forest which offers a wealth of outdoor activities including mountain-biking (family trail with cycle hire 2 miles away), canoeing and kayaking on the river Wye (Symonds Yat 4 miles away), a high wire forest adventure course at 'Go Ape' (2 miles), as well as an extensive network of forest trails. The area abounds in wild-life; highlights include peregrine falcons, goshawks, deer and wild ...
