Nestled in a valley and cosy as could be, this blissful Norwegian-style lodge is perfectly nuzzled in the hills on the fringes of the Wye Valley, tucked away in the quaint village of Clearwell with lots to discover in the Forest of Dean and across the border in Wales. Your main entrance is to the rear of the abode, where a little wooden storm porch offers the perfect spot to take off muddy boots and coats after you’ve been exploring.

Stepping inside, the attractive hallway lures you into the lodge, leading you towards the kitchen/diner. The owners’ eclectic style emanates throughout the space, providing a well-equipped and unique area in which to cook up a storm using lots of local ingredients during your stay. Complete with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and even a washing machine, you’ll want for nothing when it comes to the kitchen!

Once you’ve created your culinary masterpiece, the elegant table and dining chairs seat up to four people, providing a wonderful setting for you to sit down and enjoy a delectable meal together.

Following along the hallway, you will come across the utterly cosy as could be lounge, where a combination of natural colours blends with the wooden interior to create a room that feels as though it’s offering the warmest of hugs whenever you enter it. Beautifully finished with comfortable furnishings and sumptuous, soft blankets to wrap up warm when you cuddle up on the sofa of an evening, there are also double doors that open onto a covered porch, allowing the light and warmth to flood in during the summer months.

The ground floor is also home to a bathroom, complete with shower over bath and WC, perfect for a bubble bath to soothe tired bones – so you don’t even have to climb the stairs to truly relax if you don’t want to!

Wooden stairs lead to the first floor, where two idyllic bedrooms await. Warm shades and an immaculate finish in both rooms offer you the ultimate space in which to unwind; the master bedroom boasting a wonderfully comfortable double bed and fluffy rug to keep your toes from getting cold, whilst the second bedroom has twin single beds, plus an occasional bed if needed for an additional little one. You will also find a shower room with WC on the first floor, ideal for a refreshing morning wash before you head out for the day.

Perched in such a tranquil area, the outside space of the lodge lends itself to relaxing in the peace and seclusion of the countryside, with a lovely lawn area for you to enjoy. The porch accessed from the lounge also has seating, perfect for enjoying a coffee in the fresh air of a morning.

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: Sandwiched between the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean, and in such close proximity to the Welsh border and Brecon Beacons, you really are inundated with choice staying here when it comes to getting out and about, either on foot or on two wheels. There’s plenty for thrill seekers too, with rock climbing, canoeing, mountain biking and a Go Ape venue to monkey about at!

CASTLES & CULTURE: Goodrich and Raglan Castle are both just a short drive from the lodge, as well as the spectacular Tintern Abbey, a striking example of monastic ruins. For a family adventure, Puzzlewood offers a magical woodland with plenty of hidden, enchanted pathways to explore, whilst Perrygrove Railway is a unique experience giving you the chance to rest your feet without missing any of the breath-taking scenery on offer.

TOUR THE TOWNS: There are a plethora of picturesque little villages in the vicinity of the property, each with their own distinct character and history. Clearwell itself may be small, but its community spirit blossoms for all to see. The lively town of Gloucester is set on the banks of the River Severn to the east of the lodge boasting an abundance of amenities and spectacular cultural attractions such as Gloucester Cathedral, or head west and hop across the border to Wales and visit Monmouth, a Welsh town with many outstanding features and festivals to discover.

FINE FAYRE: The village itself has two delicious eateries, one a fine dining restaurant and the other a more traditional pub. The Tudor Farmhouse Restaurant has been described by Tatler magazine as a ‘culinary oasis’, and with their ’20 Mile Menus’ you can expect perfectly executed dishes using the most local, seasonal and delectable ingredients. Alternatively, take a pootle along to the Butchers Arms, where grills, pub classics, Sunday lunch and set menus all feature on their varied menu, where you’ll certainly find something to please everyone’s taste buds!

Exceeded expectations, cosy, value for money and perfect location.

Len, 3rd October 2018

A well located property recently refurbished to a high standard. Plenty of crockery, cutlery and kitchen utensils if you want to eat in. There are places to eat and drink in the village and Coleford is only a short drive away. The location is ideal for exploring both the Wye valley and the Forest of Dean.

Nicola, 3rd August 2018

This is a very tired property. There are no amenities in the village. I think it is poor value for money.

Jennifer, 20th June 2018

Really lovely lodge with big front garden for baby and dog to play. Loads of room for a family and children, and a couple of nice pubs and pretty walks within walking distance. Great location for loads of Forest of Dean/Wye Valley tourist attractions a short drive away- we went to Cannop Pools, for a walk near Tintern Abbey, and for a ride with walRead moreks from the Dean Forest Railway.

Jenny, 8th June 2018

The lodge is a lovely property for a holiday, well equipped and in a picturesque part of the country. Apart from a playground opposite which gets noisy when the children come out of school (and in the holidays I expect), it's in a very peaceful spot. The eateries in the village are a bit of a walk if you've been out walking all day. The nearest pubRead more doesn't do food, the next place only opens for Sunday lunch, then there is an expensive hotel, then up a hill is the Butchers Arms with a large menu. Hide
