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.
