The perfect hideaway, Mill Cottage occupies an elevated position that one cannot drive to. A steep, narrow footpath, approximately 240 yards, leads to the cottage. Once at the cottage, the peaceful location offers a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Set within 1 acre of gardens, the views that can be enjoyed are spectacular. This semi-detached, period cottage was once a cider mill, and a donkey was used to transport the produce up and down the hill. The original cider press still has pride of place at the cottage.
The gardens are a particular feature of the property, and positioned at one side of the front garden is an area of suspended timber decking with a delightful summerhouse/unstocked bar, and has views across the tree lined valley. The greater area of land however extends rearwards from this area of garden, and comprises of a steeply sloping grassy bank with a wide variety of trees, species including walnut, a large old cider apple and a number of younger apple trees, together with hazel and others. Here, there is a pergola and further seating area, so the sunshine can be enjoyed all day long. Guests are welcome to pick the garden produce, which includes wild garlic, apples, plums, pears, gooseberries, blackcurrants, whitecurrants, strawberries and blackberries. This characterful holiday cottage has the additional benefit of a balcony room off the master bedroom, where the owners have provided a telescope to admire the beautiful night time setting.
Mill Cottage is situated in the Forest of Dean, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Enjoy the beautiful scenery of the forest and the many activities available in the area, including fabulous walking, cycling, canoeing, golf and family days out.

    A really lovely cottage, where we stayed for just 3 nights over the new year period. Because of this we didn't get to experience the benefits of sitting outside and enjoying the garden and views but these would all be lovely in the spring/summer, so we're tempted to come again then. The owners were also really helpful and responsive. The only reason I have given it a 6 for location, is that you do have to walk up a steep path (bit muddy in places) to get to it, which needs to be remembered when arriving with all your luggage/food etc. We knew to expect it but it was still quite hard work - definitely worth it though!

    Mill Cottage is a beautifully decorated cottage that the photos don’t do justice to. The kitchen is very well equipped and the super king size bed is extremely comfortable. The owners are attentive/responsive without being in your face. The only negative I could say was that as part of the cottage is underground it did have a faint damp smell in part of the cottage. The grounds are also lovely and we would definitely like to return in the Spring time. As mentioned in the details there is quite a hike up a narrow path which highlights ones fitness or lack of, but the cottage at the end is worth it. The cottage is well placed for some beautiful walks, some on the door step others only a short drive away. Highly recommend.
