We are a family of 5 (children aged 10, 8 and 4) and found this cottage suited us perfectly for a three night break. The hosts were friendly and welcoming and the site seemed quiet on the whole even though there obviously were other families...More

About the neighbourhood
Our cottages are situated right beside the beautiful Forest of Dean. Open the gate and you are in the forest! The forest is a wonderful playground and learning experience for children, and loved by cyclists, walkers, birdwatchers etc. There are also many attractions to visit locally, such as caves, castles, steam railways, heritage centres etc., and activities to get involved in - climbing, canoeing, kayaking, walking, cycling, golf, fishing, horse-riding etc.
Getting around
The best way to really explore the local area and to see the wildlife are on foot or by bicycle. By car is the best way to visit those attractions a little further away.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Bristol: 60.0 km
Railway: Lydney: 6.0 km
Our cottages are quietly situated in the countryside. The easiest way to reach us is by car, however we are only 3 miles away from the town of Lydney which has regular train services and also buses. Buses to Yorkley village are few and far between but taxis can be hired to bring you from the train station. It is also possible to walk through the forest from Lydney but it is an uphill walk and you would need to be good at map reading! Cycling from Lydney is again uphill - fine for the enthusiast!
