Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, England
On the outskirts of the tiny hamlet of Flaxley in a gated courtyard setting bounded by a stream and with immediate access to the owners' fields and lake, The Old Dairy and The Old Mill are the very attractive result of much thought and hard work. At right angles to each other, the houses have their own parking and garden area and can be rented individually but are also ideal for larger parties wishing to holiday together: The Old Mill provides large, light living spaces where a party of ten can comfortably gather to eat or just relax.

There is a well-stocked lake in the adjacent meadow for fly-fishing enthusiasts: arrangements and any payment for this will be made directly with the owners.

Both these cottages have been cleverly and imaginatively designed to incorporate interesting architectural features and lavish use of natural ma...

We came down for half term week and had a really lovely holiday. Ok, so the weather was fine and the family that stayed in the other property were very nice, but the accommodation played a big part too. The Old Diary was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, with TVs in each room and wi-fi access (for teenagers obsessed with...

A wonderful place to stay a home from home. Very comfortable inside, extremely well equipped and clean, and a lot of thought has been put into the layout of the Old Dairy's design. Excellent welcome pack and also towels and sheets provided. It was lovely to walk around the lake and pick the blackberries. Stunning view from the hill in...

Just spent another week in this beautiful cottage which is situated in a tranquil location. The property has a gated entrance and is surrounded by fields and a lake. It is very safe for young children and a perfect place to take a dog. On arrival there is an excellent Welcome pack and the cottage is spotlessly clean. It is...

About the neighbourhood
The whole area provides a wide range of activities. The Royal Forest of Dean is perfect for walking and cycling in the ancient woodlands and a number of water-based sports are available on the River Wye. There are also some spectacular views, for example from the famous Symonds Yat Rock, approx. 15 minutes' drive away. The Forest's mining heritage is celebrated in several visitor attractions including the Clearwell caves which are well-worth a visit. The attractive nearby village of Newnham-on-Severn has a post office, pub and store.

Regency Cheltenham, the cathedral cities of Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester, as well as much of the Cotswolds, are all within the range of a day's outing.
