As close as could be to the country border, and proudly perched atop a hill in idyllic surroundings, this pretty little abode epitomises everything that a cosy cottage should be, with quaint touches around every corner. Amble along the short garden path, shaded by beautiful foliage and lined with flowers, to reach the sweet doorway into the holiday hideaway where you will enter into the open plan kitchen and dining area.

Open the door to discover low, beam-fringed ceilings that evoke a cosy cottage vibe from the moment you enter. To the left, you will find a spacious dining area with a traditional wooden table and chairs for you and your guests to enjoy delicious home-cooked meals together. Behind the wooden shutters, original windows with views onto the front lawn allow light to flood the area, whilst the single armchair and farmhouse dresser add a quirky element to the room.

Echoing a similar, traditional farmhouse style, the kitchen is beautifully finished, creating a space that is not only inviting, but will make you want to cook even while you’re on holiday! Well-equipped for all your culinary needs, you will find an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washer/dryer should you require it whilst away. It’s the perfect place to whip up a storm using fresh, local ingredients you would never normally get in your home town.

Through the kitchen, take a few steps down into the lounge, where the homely ambiance is palpable as soon as you sit down to relax. Fire up the wood burner to keep the chill off of an evening, then wind down on the comfortable sofa or armchair, where you can read a book, listen to some music, or enjoy a film together on the TV/DVD. During the summer, the wood burner may not be necessary, but the French doors certainly provide a gentle breeze flowing through the room. On warm evenings, open them up to enjoy access to the private courtyard and make the most of the mild nights.

When it’s time to unwind, the bedrooms can be found upstairs; the master bedroom is on the first floor, in which you will discover an opulent four-poster bed, fit for royalty. There is also a sofa to sink into and relax, and the high beamed ceilings only add to the grandeur of the space. Also on this floor you will find a beautiful bathroom, which features a striking claw-foot bathtub for you to truly relax in style.

Head up to the second floor, and you will come across the second of the two bedrooms. This light, airy space has a sumptuous double bed, plus an additional day bed. The views out across the valley are breath-taking, so don’t be deterred by the having to climb more steps – it’s certainly worth it! The lovely en-suite on this floor also has a shower and WC.

Outside, there are two glorious gardens, allowing you the optimum space to soak up the country air and summer sunshine. Through the French doors off the lounge there is seating in the private courtyard, and there is also another pretty garden accessed via the dining area with seating.

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: As close as can be to the border of England and Wales, you will have the best of both worlds with a stay at this property. Choose from a plethora of walking routes in some truly beautiful areas, including the Brecon Beacons National Park and Wye Valley, or seek out some adrenaline-pumping activities such as mountain biking, rock climbing and canoeing.

CASTLES & CULTURE: An abundance of culture and historical castles await you, ranging from ruins to regal towers. Goodrich, Raglan and Abergavenny are all well worth a visit, and each is within easy driving distance of the cottage. Elsewhere, the towns and cities are alive with historical influence, running through their cobbles and architecture.

TOUR THE TOWNS: Both countries have their perks, and each will have you vying for their attention with the beauty, culture and amenities on offer. Symonds Yat is popular with tourists for its unusual position straddling the River Wye, whilst the county town of Monmouth has an expansive history to be explored. There are plenty of cities within easy reach of the property, too; take a trip to Gloucester to see its outstanding cathedral, or head to Hereford for literary goodness at every turn.

FINE FAYRE: For some fine food choices, nearby Monmouth has some truly magnificent eateries. La Piccola Italia serves some of the best Italian food you could imagine without travelling to the country itself, whilst The Stonemill offers truly delectable British cuisine in an utterly beautiful setting. Elsewhere, The Misbah has some phenomenal Indian dishes to sample, and The Inn at Penallt cooks up some culinary Welsh masterpieces for your palate.

SLEEPS: There are two bedrooms, one with a king-size four-poster bed, the other with one double bed and an additional day bed. Bed linen is provided for your stay.

RELAXING: Electric and central heating and Wi-Fi is included for your stay.

COOKING & DINING: There is an electrical oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.

KEEPING CLEAN: There is one first floor bathroom with claw foot bath and WC, and an en-suite shower room with WC on the second floor. Towels are provided for your stay.

OUTSIDE: Outside there are two pretty gardens with outdoor seating. There is off-road parking available for two cars.

PETS: Two dogs are welcome at this property.

WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

Jacquie, 8th February 2019

Beautiful cottage and great location to explore the area every thing was perfect, area was peaceful and quiet even though located on a busy road. Idyllic can't stop telling all our friends... historically we go to Stowe annually so definitely would visit Gloucestershire again.

Ellie, 25th November 2018

The property was just perfect, a true home from home. Little touches of luxury were everywhere, including dog bowls and towels. We will definitely go back!

Sarka, 16th November 2018

For our November break this cottage was perfect. The Forest of Dean is basically at your doorstep, after a nice walk, we opened the fire and got cosy on massive sofas in the lounge. The kitchen is fully equipped and cooking was easy but the local pub (5 min away) serves good food and wine, so we didn't feel the need to cook every day. The cottage hRead moreas got a good vibe, the owners take good care, there were several things, we particularly appreciated; the stair gate, doggy towels. Hide

Lynn, 2nd November 2018

Perfect stay in a lovely cottage, everything we would need provided and decorated to a very high standard. Larger than we thought and always lovely and warm on cold November mornings.

Simon, 26th October 2018

This cottage was gorgeous, and immaculately clean had everything you could want our Daisy Doberman loved it too, every time you came in it was lovely and was just perfect and snuggly everything has been thought of

Jim, 12th October 2018

Perfect!

Kelly, 28th September 2018

Beautifully restored cottage in a great position for exploring the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire. We took our two dogs and walked for miles everyday in every direction where the views were amazing. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Anne, 3rd September 2018

Church Farm Cottage was everything we expected. Old world charm but with all modern conveniences. The gardens were pretty and the Cottage decorated and furnished in keeping with its heritage. David and Nicky were perfect hosts. What more can I say but perfect.

Claudia, 24th August 2018

We can truly recommend this place, hence the cottage indeed in nature is even more beautiful than on the photos. :) Claudia & Bernd from Germany

Martin, 17th August 2018

We (two couples aged 55-60) really enjoyed our week long holiday at Church Farm Cottage. This lovely cosy, pet friendly cottage was beautifully and tastefully decorated and equipped ensuring a comfortable and stress free break. It is well situated in the lovely Wye Valley with many interesting walks from the door. Great grub available at the White Read moreHorse Inn just a few minutes walk away, but best book a table to avoid disappointment. Hide

Dean, 27th July 2018

Location (centre of Forest of Dean) together with the quality of the cottage made this a great break. Dogs had a great week with multiple walks at the doorstep. Would highly recommend.

Eric, 29th June 2018

The cottage and location is excellent. However the cottage is not suitable for people who have difficulty with stairs. The stairs to the second floor bedroom are very steep and tall people can hit their head on the beam at the start of the stairs

Margaret, 15th June 2018

Church Farm Cottage is gorgeous. It has been furnished with style, comfort and love to create a beautiful stylish, traditional but homely cottage in a perfect location The information pack was excellent ( as were the welcoming chocolate brownies!) Extremely high standard of cleanliness too. We had a wonderful holiday .

Lindsey, 4th June 2018

Beautiful cottage, superbly equipped. Perfect for walking and access to the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean. It is very near the main road but you soon forget the noise of the traffic due to the beauty of the place.
