Secluded spot in the heart of a valley, this cosy barn conversion is the perfect retreat for lovers of the outdoors, set within acres of established gardens, ancient woodlands and farm land.

Escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and enjoy a little quality time together in the beautiful Forest of Dean. Set on a 60-acre farm in a picturesque valley at Deepdean, 3 miles from Ross-on-Wye, this exquisite, one-bedroom cottage makes an idyllic, romantic retreat. Soak in your private hot tub, swim in the shared pool from the end of April until the end of September, which is solar heated during July and August, and wander the grounds to see the rare and wild animals that are rescued by the owners of this spell-binding estate.

 

Make your way into this traditional holiday home, one of several individual, delightful properties on the farm. Stroll down the hall and climb the stairs to find yourselves in an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, with rustic furniture and an inviting ambience. Watch the TV or a DVD in here or take an hour or two to yourself with a book. Prepare meals and dine together in here or out on the balcony, with its beautiful views. Wander through into the beautiful bedroom, with its unusual king-size, four-poster bed, made from branches. There is an en-suite shower room. Relax on your private balcony on fine days or treat yourselves to a stroll around the gardens, a dip in the pool or a bubble in the hot tub. Find parking for one car at the cottage.

 

Make your way into Ross-on-Wye to go shopping, dine out and hire a canoe on the river. Go fishing here too or hire bikes and set off for the afternoon on two wheels. Visit Goodrich Castle, 4 miles away from your base, or make a day of it and head to renowned Tintern Abbey, 20 miles away. Symonds Yat, 6 miles away, is popular for river cruises.

What a FANTASTIC WEEK!! My partner and I arrived and were instantly welcomed. The cottage was gorgeous and had everything we needed. I cannot thank the owners enough, and their knowledge and wisdom was fantastic. Thank you so much for allowing us the opportunity to stay - we cannot wait to come back again!

A beautiful and unusual location, being so close to rescued animals! The cottage is well-appointed with all the facilities you need and is comfortable and cosy. Being able to observe the animals was very relaxing, and it was lovely to see how much care and attention there is to make sure they live their best lives. Watching the meerkats from the hoRead moret tub was particularly entertaining and restful. Lindsay and Frank were great hosts. Highly recommended! Hide

What a wonderful place. A little slice of serenity tucked away in a quiet valley, we enjoyed the peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of our noisy town life. The accommodation was nice, cosy and comfortable with everything you need for a self catering home. The hot tub was a welcome treat for tired legs after days out in the fabulRead moreous Wye Valley.

We had a wonderfully relaxing holiday in Porcupine Point at Paddocks Farm! What a unique and marvelous find. We loved our cosy little upstairs cottage apartment with all its rustic charm. The leather sofas were very comfortable and the waterfall shower was great. I loved cooking on the gas hob - much better than electric. Seeing all the wild animalRead mores every day was amazing. Lindsay is a guardian angel to every creature and you can see how dedicated she is to their welfare. Fab location too. Hide

Fantastic location. What a little gem of a place to stay for a relaxing holiday. The hot tub & pool were lovely bonuses & watching the animals & beautiful sunsets made this so much more than a holiday cottage. Will definitely book to stay here again.

Lindsay and Frank are wonderful hosts. Property is in a fabulous location deep in a valley surrounded by forest and it is so peaceful you cannot help but relax and move to a different beat. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere but restaurants/pubs/shops are all only a matter of a 5-10 min drive as are lots of local sites and attractions.
