    Hoseasons "Forest Cottage is a one bed cottage at The Rock and offers contemporary style with far reaching views and outdoor fenced seating area.\nGround Floor.\nOpen plan living space.\nLiving area \nWith 49’’ Freeview TV.\n\nDining area.\nKitchen area \nWith electric oven electric hob microwave fridge dishwasher and washing machine.\n\nFirst Floor\nBedroom \nWith kingsize bed and 17 Freeview TV.\n\nShower room \nWith shower cubicle toilet and heated towel rail. \n Oil central heating. Patio with garden furniture.\n All properties Electricity bed linen towels and Wi-fi included. Welcome pack. Bike store. Private parking for 2 cars. No smoking. Please note No children under 12 years old. The Rock is located in the picturesque Forest of Dean on the edge of the Wye Valley which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is a short forest walk from one of the finest viewpoints in southern England at Symonds Yat Rock. The River Wye meanders far below with spectacular far reaching views which has made it a very popular tourist destination since Victorian times. The forest was the royal hunting grounds of the Tudor kings and The Rock Inn as it was formerly known has its origin around that time. The Rock has not been a public house for many years but the two studios were built in what was the old skittle alley and Forest Cottage is built on what was the site of the original stables for the old inn.\nAs this is a popular area for walking guides and maps are provided to help you make the most of your stay. Cycling and mountain biking are also popular in the forest and bike storage is available. The area also provides plenty of opportunities for bird and wildlife watching canoeing climbing and even caving. Sheep are allowed to roam free within the statutory forest area and it is not unusual to see fallow and muntjac deer. Symonds Yat is home to peregrine falcon and goshawks are one of the more unusual birds to spot in the forest.\nThe Rock has a large private car park from its heritage as a pub. The two studios and the cottage all have private patios leading to their own entrance so you are free to come and go as you please. All have views over the garden across open farmland to the Ruardean Valley stretching 25 miles to the Malvern Hills.\nForest Cottage is semi-detached next to the owner’s home with a contemporary styled open plan livingdiningkitchen area on the ground floor and a large upstairs bedroom with a kingsize bed and and separate shower room. This cottage is dog friendly and dogs can be exercised in the forest.\nRuardean Studio and Clearwell Studio are both ground floor contemporary styled open plan studios which enjoy fantastic views across the garden and open farmland. There is outdoor seating in which to enjoy a glass of wine and your favourite meals. These studios are pet free for those who may suffer with allergies.\nShop 2 miles pub and restaurant ¾ mile.\nForest Cottage ref UKC3032 can be booked together with Ruardean Studio ref UKC3033 and Clearwell Studio ref UKC3034 to accommodate up to 6 guests. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/143/840/1434915.jpg UKC3032

    We enjoyed our 3 night stay at Forest Cottage, the bed was very comfortable and the cottage had a good shower. The location is good for a walk in the forest which in the day time you can also cut thro to get to a lovely local dog friendly country pub so that you dont have to walk along the road as there are no foot paths.

    Had a lovely weekend break at the Forest Cottage. It was just what we wanted, cosy, clean, homely and a nice place to relax - the views from the bedroom are amazing and the cottage is in close proximity to all the sights in the Forest of Dean! Couldn’t have asked for anything better - thank you :)

    If you want a great property in a superb location this is the property for you. The location is quiet and close to all the attractions in the forest of Dean.You can easily walk to Symonds Yat rock from the property.There are many fantastic pubs that allow dogs and the owners are very accommodating. The property is very comfortable and our dog loved the house and walks around the area

    An ideal place for a short break, in an idyllic setting in the Wye Valley. Excellent accommodation, friendly and helpful owners, and a delightful setting. Virtually perfect as a location where one can relax and enjoy the most beautiful surroundings.

    We’ve just spent a fabulous weekend here. The cottage is beautiful and looks exactly like the pictures on the website and has everything you need. The view from the bedroom is amazing. The hosts (and their two gorgeous dogs) are very friendly and have lots of information about the area. You only have to cross the road and you are in the forest which is the starting point for a lovely circular walk to Symonds Yat Rock. The New Inn is just a 15 minute walk away and The Dog & Muffler and The White Horse @Staunton a short drive away are well worth a visit. We will definitely be back as there is so much more to explore.

    My wife & I stayed at Forest Cottage for a well earned late summer break for the first week of September. The accommodation was perfect (very spacious & modern, but homely) & we were able to chill-out immediately on arrival. We managed to easily maintain that sense of relaxation throughout our stay & our good luck with the weather helped extend that feeling beyond the Cottage. The king sized bed was so comfortable that we slept-in most days (I usually wake without an alarm around 5a.m.). The Kitchen was well equipped & we were able to eat-in frequently. The owners were lovely & although they made themselves available to us, we only saw them occasionally in passing as we never needed to trouble them for anything except for some local knowledge about the area when we first arrived and to let them know we were leaving on our final morning. Oh, we did happen to be going out just as they'd come back from picking some of their lovely apples which they kindly shared with us. There are two Studio Apartments with lovely views attached to the other side of the owners home if you wanted to stay with a group of people larger than two. I've no hesitation in recommending Forest Cottage to other family & friends.
