The quaint and bustling community village of Staunton has an enviable position making it an excellent base for exploring the Forest of Dean,  Wye Valley and Welsh Borders. Nestled in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by countryside with many well marked footpaths to guide you through the stunning scenery, including the Meend circular route with Moorland ponies and views across the Brecons. For the more adventurous among us there is rock climbing and canoeing at Symonds Yat which is walkable through the historic woodland with a lunch at the Saracens Head, Go Ape at Mallards Park and ample mountain biking routes around the Forest of Dean and the Black Mountains across the Welsh border. It is a location that is great all year round with a vibrant events calendar to include the Hay on Wye Literary Festival, Abergavenny Food Festival and the Cheltenham Jazz Festival to name but a few. Also within an hours drive are the bustling cities of Bristol and the Historic Spa town of Bath, with lots to see and do including the SS Great Britain and the famous Bath Spas, as well as easy access to both Chepstow and Cheltenham racecourse and the heart of The Cotswolds.

Your journey starts at the garden gate of this picturesque Grade II listed cottage, a simple porch covers the pale green door, and as you step inside you will be welcomed by the both classic and timeless interior of the kitchen/diner. Simply brimming with character and original features to include the exposed beams and fire place with a mantle hosting a colourful selection of jugs. The dining area with a traditional table and school room chairs enhanced by the simple arm chair and farm house dresser, the original windows offer views onto the front gardens and when the evening draws in you can simply close the original wooden shutters. The kitchen boasts the same traditional style though well–equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. And when dinner is done step down into the lounge for a cosy evening with family or friends, light the wood burner and enjoy a movie on the TV/DVD, or for summer evenings simply open the French doors onto a private courtyard. When it’s time for bed, climb the stairs where you will find a room fit for a king with an ornate four poster bedroom. There is also a bathroom with claw foot bath and WC on this floor. Heading up some steep carpeted stairs with a fixed handrail to the second floor there is a double bedroom with additional day bed with stunning views onto the valley with en-suite shower room and WC.

This stunning cottage has two enclosed cottage gardens, you can enjoy the sun throughout the day with a garden with seating accessed off the lounge, and a further simple garden is accessed via the dining area with seating. There is off-road parking for two cars.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

We had a wonderful stay in the cottage, Staunton is a very pretty village and so close to the Forrest of Dean and lovely towns like Monmouth, Ross on Wye and Ledbury. Nicky and David were perfect hosts, very friendly and helpful and the cottage itself is a delight. We hope to go again and have already told our friends about it.

Janet, 14th June 2019

There were four adults and two small dogs, we all had plenty of space between us. The cottage was really pretty and set in a lovely village, close to a town with a good co-op and Tesco express. The pub was very good for taking dogs of an evening, food was good but a bit pricey if you are there for full week. The good old Co-op is a must. EverythingRead more you need is provided little touches chocolate brownies baked by the owner very nice! Hide

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
