Secretly nuzzled in its own little plot on the fringes of Clearwell village, this pretty cottage is filled to the brim with charm and cosy touches, creating a sublime romantic retreat for two close to the Welsh border and Wye Valley. Your dreamy journey to comfort and relaxation begins before you even enter the front door, with a gentle mill stream to cross as you walk towards the garden. Amble across the teeny bridge over the water and head towards the entrance of your heavenly holiday abode...

Step inside the porch to kick off muddy boots and hang up your coat, before heading into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner to discover the enchanting beauty of the cottage you’re staying in. A wondrous blend of eclectic styles and traditional charm, alongside splashes of vibrant colour, provide a lounge that’s cosy as could be; the comfortable sofas with sumptuous cushions and throws are perfect for sitting back and relaxing of an evening, the chilly nights made that much more snug thanks to the wood burner.

The bespoke kitchen is beautifully finished with white-washed cabinets, and is well-equipped with everything you could need, from and electric oven and hob, to a microwave and a fridge, so you can store all your local produce ready to create a culinary wonder during your stay. The dining table is ideal for two and in the centre of the open-plan area, so you’re never far from the kettle or the comfy armchair!

Just off from the kitchen you will find a handy utility space, complete with a washing machine in case you need to do any emergency washing while you’re away!

At the end of a long day of exploration, climb the stairs to the mezzanine floor in the eaves of the house for the ultimate relaxation spot. The room itself is simplistic yet perfectly formed, with a sumptuous double bed as well as a further single day bed. The open bannister allows you to overlook the lounge below, so the warmth of the wood burner can rise up and keep the bedroom toasty, whilst the openness of the floor lets the light flood in and keep the space airy. The en-suite shower room and WC means you’ll never have to go far for a refreshing wash either.

The outside space of the property includes the idyllic stream running through the garden, and a blissful private courtyard where you can sit and enjoy breakfast or a BBQ on the outdoor seating provided.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

WALKING & CYCLING: The position of this humble little abode makes it ideal for outdoor sports of all types; nuzzled between the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean, and just across the Welsh border and the Brecon Beacons, you’ll be surrounded by a plethora of walking and cycling options in some areas of true striking beauty. With so much for adrenaline junkies too, including canoeing, rock climbing and mountain biking, you’re guaranteed a fantastic active holiday when staying here.

CASTLES & CULTURE: There are an abundance of castles all within a short drive of the cottage, providing you with plenty of opportunities to indulge in a little cultural wonderment. Ranging in age, grandeur and state, you can travel to discover the castles of Goodrich, Raglan and Abergavenny from your holiday home, or head to Tintern Abbey to see a truly special monastic ruin. Gloucester Cathedral is also just a short journey east, with lots of history to uncover.

TOUR THE TOWNS: With so many idyllic little villages to explore both in England and across the border in Wales, you’ll want to see every single one during your stay! Clearwell itself boasts a small yet mighty spirit, so you’ll feel right at home spending your holiday on its fringes. Gloucester has an abundance of facilities to discover, with everything from shops and restaurants to its magnificent cathedral and plethora of leisure amenities. Across the border in Wales, Monmouth is a classic Welsh town with plenty of history to offer, whilst the lively Newport is also easily accessible.

FINE FAYRE: Within Clearwell itself there are two spectacular eateries to suit separate tastes and budgets. The Tudor Farmhouse Restaurant was once described by Tatler magazine as a ‘culinary oasis’ and it certainly deserves the title, with their ’20 Mile Menus’ all locally sourced providing the ultimate dining experience that is perfectly executed every time. Elsewhere, the Butchers Arms serves many a traditional pub meal with Sunday lunch, set menus, dinners for kids and hearty grills all waiting to be taste-tested by you!

WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

Ian, 11th March 2019

Querky but careflly thought out cottage ideal for similar people

Kate, 28th December 2018

The cottage was really cosy and perfect for our needs. Taller people may have difficulty with the shower which is a bit cramped and the bed which has a solid base on the end. The cottage has all of the necessary amenities. The location was fantastic! Very peaceful and quiet village. Clearwell Caves are definitely worth a visit.

Sarah, 3rd November 2018

A very lovely cottage. A very quiet get away. A nice chilled out week was very needed .

Odele, 26th October 2018

The location is wonderful, set in a beautiful village with so many walks right on the door step. A great base for exploring the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley. The cottage is cosy when the log fire is lit and the kitchen is well equipped. Dog friendly cottage, which we paid extra for, but the information pack on arrival says that they must stay Read morein the porch. Hide

Rosemary, 16th September 2018

A pleasant little cottage, not a lot of space upstairs

Julie, 3rd September 2018

Very cute and comfy. Well equipped. Friendly but non intrusive owners at the farm next door. Good location to get to lots of interesting locations nearby. Lovely set lunch at Tudor Farmhouse and The Butchers Arms is great. Sitting by the stream is just lovely. Highly recommended.

Maria, 23rd August 2018

Cottage is quirky and a lovely setting. Location is fantastic. Lots around to do especially if you like walking.

Anthea, 10th August 2018

This cottage is excellent for those on a walking holiday or sight seers. Not to be recommended if you want to stay there for hours in the day. The sound of the stream is lovely but the interior is rather dark. The shower cubicle has a bench in it which is a nice touch and useful if you are feeling frail. The main bed is quite comfortable but the seRead morecond bed isnt, though a child might not notice this. Be sure to stock up on food before arriving unless you plan to eat at the pub. Hide

Susan, 3rd August 2018

Cottage was cosy, nice area to unwind and relax. Our journey was a bit long mainly due to motorway repairs, I would definitely visit again if it was more closer to home.

Julie, 29th June 2018

Beautiful cottage with lovely comfy furnishings. The stream running next to the cottage with the little bridge over it to the front door is lovely to sit next to in one of the two patio areas. Very handy location for sightseeing and walking.

Karen, 22nd June 2018

We had a fabulous stay, cottage was just right for us and with the extreme heat lovely to sit by the brook. Our dog was very happy with all the walks close by. Butchers Arms was very handy & dog friendly, Ostrich Inn delicious food & beautiful garden. Very comfortable & well equipped .
