Hoolet in Gloucestershire, a cottage in Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire

High standard, ground floor, environmentally friendly cottage in rural area

One of two idyllic holiday cottages situated in a peaceful, rural location on the Severn estuary next to the Forest of Dean. These well equipped, ground floor cottages look out onto a traditional apple orchard, which is maintained under a Country Stewardship agreement, and have views of the river and, on a good day, to the Malvern Hills. They are close to a network of footpaths including the Severn Way footpath and one to the local pub. In converting the cottages, the owners have tried to be as environmentally friendly as practically possible and have, amongst other things, have installed a heating system which utilises geothermal energy.

Both cottages are graded 4 stars by Visit Britain and Hamstalls is graded Mobility Level 1 on the National Accessibility Scheme.

Hoolet is ground floor property with under floor heating throughout and comprises one double, or twin, bedroom with ensuite bathroom containing a toilet, a bath (with shower over) and wash hand basin, and a living/dining room with a log burning stove, flat screen TV, various board games and a well equipped kitchen. A sofa-bed is available to allow families of up to 4 to stay. There is a small garden with patio, lawn, garden furniture and BBQ. Two cars can comfortably be parked in front of the cottage. Access is available to the Severn Way footpath either via the nearby public footpaths or directly through the owner’s (and their Labradors’) garden, to the edge of the river.

Dogs are welcome, by prior agreement, though we do charge an extra £20 per pet. The two orchards in front of the cottages can be used for dog walking purposes provided, of course, the sheep are not in them!

The Forest of Dean, with its ancient mines and 300 year old oak trees, and the Wye Valley, with its meandering river, vertical rock faces andl view point at Symonds Yat, together offer some of the country’s best out-door activities including, cycling, walking, boarding, canoeing, caving and a “Go Ape” tree-top adventure site.

Also, within a short car journey one can find many children’s attractions, museums, castles and mines, while an hour’s journey will take you to Cardiff, the Black Mountains, Bristol or Gloucester and Cheltenham.

Alternatively, you can just relax at the Priory Cottages enjoying the views, the Cotswold sheep grazing in the orchards, the wide variety of birds and, periodically, watch the famous Severn Bore.
