My Forest Cottage

1 of 17
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Parkend, Lydney, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, England
Lilac Cottage is an archetypal two bedroomed Forest of Dean stone cottage. Built around 1890 to house the family of a forestry worker, it now provides modern day luxury for that perfect get away holiday. The Forest of Dean occupies some 35 square miles of protected forest, Lilac Cottage sits in a small hamlet in the centre. Surrounded by stunning woodland it is walking distance to the village of Parkend, the RSPB centre at Nagshead, and is adjacent to the cycling track that winds its way through the Forest.
The cottage is designed to provide a relaxed high quality home from home feel. The log burner, decoration, lighting and comfy furniture coupled with the cosy bedrooms all combine to provide the perfect environment for a restful break.
