General Info

Lydney 2.9 miles. This peaceful country cottage, Brook Cottage, is accessed by a private lane which only leads to one other property on the fringes of Aylburton village, near Lydney, Gloucestershire; making for a quiet base with no passing traffic. It has an all-white exterior except for the pale sky blue shutters on the outside of the windows, adding a touch of charm and character; the front garden also rests next to an enclosed parking area for two cars. Brook Cottage is bordered by a brook to the front and enjoys exclusive use of a private hot tub in an enclosed fence yard to the rear; the gate from the rear patio leads to an open field - a doggy heaven! The cottage itself has been finished to a high standard and enjoys clean, laminate flooring throughout, whilst also being powered by the latest solar panels and slim, hi-tec air conditioning units in the bedroom and lounge, which not only heat efficiently but also keep you cool in the summer! Entry is gained straight into the delights of the contemporary sitting room, decorated with peace in mind and a Smart LED TV with a DVD Player for those quiet evenings in. Just off from here is the kitchen, well-appointed and sporting a fresh, reviving colour scheme and features everything you need, such as a Neff oven, Bosh dishwasher and a super-fast induction hob. Access to the enclosed patio can be acquired from here through the rear door, with a lovely hot tub to relax away your troubles, whilst listening to the birdsong from the woodland and the babbling brook, after a venturesome day out in Gloucestershire, and a wine cooler to get a bottle or two chilled and kept to hand. In the evening, progress through the property to find a double room that is enhanced by a flourish of stylish fittings and furniture; the French doors offer another route out onto the rear decking. The luxury shower room is situated nearby and features a double shower enclosure with a rain head shower, heated towel rail and a clever bluetooth ceiling speaker to play your own music. Head to the front of the cottage and lounge in the picnic area, with its gazebo and picnic bench shaded by trees. The property rests in a prime location with easy access to a public footpath from the rear yard, which takes you across the farmland to The Globe, a fantastic gastro pub. For things to do in the nearby area, head into Lydney town for shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as sports facilities. For the more adventurous, there is climbing, abseiling and caving amongst the Royal Forest of Dean. You can explore the Cotswolds, not too far away and even walk the trails promised at the Brecon Beacons National Park, its wonderful landscape scenery awaiting your arrival. The thriving cities of Cardiff, Cheltenham and Gloucester are further afield with a whole wealth of activities for a fun-filled outing. This wonderful cottage brings guests a relaxing stay to couples, the year-round. Read More

No

Peaceful seclusion

Clean, spacious and has everything you need to get away from it all. Big hot tub which isn't overlooked at all makes for a very relaxing stay. Not too far from Bath or Bristol if you fancy a trip to the city and is right on the door step of the forest of Dean or the Wye valley. A short walk across the field behind takes you to the Globe pub which is an added bonus. Such a quiet and peaceful escape is very welcome, would happily go again.
