The property

The Carriage is a delightful, refurbished apartment situated within a Grade II listed coach house in the grounds of the owner’s home, just outside the small town of Lydney.

Set on a hillside with panoramic views over the town and surrounding countryside, the apartment is tastefully furnished to provide a contemporary base for exploring the Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire countryside and the many activities on offer.

At the end of each day, look forward to returning to the warmth of the apartment, which has been designed with a family in mind, with its contemporary furnishings and all modern conveniences required for a comfortable stay.

Make use of the fully-equipped kitchen to cater your family-favourite recipes before regrouping with your loved ones within the spacious living area to enjoy the overlooking views of the garden as you tuck in and toast to a wonderful holiday.

Afterwards, sink into the sofas to admire the countryside views with a cup of tea in hand or flick on the gas fire to allow a gentle warmth to fill the room as you browse the TV channels to catch up on the latest box set.

The master suite boasts a plush king-size bed, draped in quality linens and enjoys far-reaching views over the countryside and gardens to wake up to each morning, whilst the light and airy second bedroom has houses twin beds, perfect for children or a set of friends.

Guests are free to stroll around the large, shared gardens featuring four ponds, and relax and enjoy an alfresco meal or drink in the property's private outdoor seating area, plan the next day’s activities, or simply sit and enjoy the view.

If you can tear yourself away from this stylish abode, head into Lydney to find a plethora of places to eat and drink, as well as a number of shops for a spot of retail therapy and picking up the essentials.

Don your walking shoes and explore the area further with walking opportunities situated within the beautiful Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or choose to stroll along the Gloucestershire Way and Offa's Dyke Path.

The area plays host to a number of activities, including caving, abseiling, fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing, as well as outstanding attractions such as Chepstow Castle, Tintern Abbey, Puzzlewood and the Dean Forest Steam Railway.

You can also spend a day visiting the historic market towns of Monmouth and Ross-on-Wye and the cathedral city of Gloucester, or why not try some shopping in the bustling cities of Cheltenham, Cardiff or Newport?

A wonderful Gloucestershire apartment in a character coach house for a memorable holiday.

About the location


Chepstow 9 miles, Monmouth 12 miles; Gloucester 20 miles; Chelttenham 27 miles; Bristol; Cardiff 41 miles

The small, thriving town of Lydney is situated between the eastern edge of the Forest of Dean and the River Severn in Gloucestershire. Lydney has a very good range of shops, a leisure centre and sports facilities, as well as pubs, cafes and restaurants serving a wide variety of meals. The magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, boasts numerous trails that can be explored on foot, by bike or on horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are for the more adventurous, whilst fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this unspoilt area. The ancient caves of Clearwell are nearby, as are the Gloucestershire Way and Offa's Dyke Path. Symonds Yat boasts natural scenery and straddles the beautiful River Wye with its magnificent limestone outcrop, popular with climbers, and well-known for its viewpoint. Visit the nearby historic walled town of Chepstow with its impressive Norman Castle and the celebrated racecourse, whilst the pretty market town of Monmouth, with its mixture of elegant Georgian mansions and Victorian courtyards, or the lovely town of Ross-on-Wye with its timbered Tudor houses and delightful riverside walks, both offer excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. The unspoilt Brecon Beacons National Park and Black Mountains, as well as lovely Cotswold towns and villages are just a little further afield as are the cities of Cheltenham, Gloucester, Cardiff, Newport, and just across the Severn Bridge, Bristol and Bath. Lydney is ideally placed for enjoying the delights of Gloucestershire at any time of the year.
