    “Very well equipped and spacious cottage.”

    Good setting on the edge of the forest even the sheep added to the country feel. Would definitely recommend.

The property

A charming, fresh cottage that sits wonderfully in the village of Bream in Gloucestershire.

Pippins, originally built in 1814, is a traditionally built two up two down stone cottage that has been sensitively extended whilst preserving the best of the old world charm.

Pippins is well-decorated and comes in a location with so much to do, it is perfect for a fun family holiday.

You have a choice of sitting rooms with this property, both come with comfortable seating and are ideal spots to sit and relax when you're not out exploring what this thriving area has to offer.

The fitted kitchen diner is spacious and tastefully decorated, providing all of the essential equipment along with a fantastic oil-fired Rayburn.

The ground floor of Pippins also has a bright and fresh conservatory with seating, and a spacious shower room with a baby changing counter, perfect for families.

The first floor is accessed via a staircase, typical for a stone cottage of this period, being a bit steeper and narrower than the more modern variety and boasts three pleasant bedrooms, all with delightful bed linen and one with a stylish en-suite shower room.

The garden that comes with Pippins is an excellent spot to sit in the sun, you have the choice of the brilliant lawn brimming with fruit trees, or a patio area with a picnic bench where you can enjoy a refreshing drink or even alfresco dining.Pippins overlooks a pleasant grassy field right next to the Forest of Dean which was once a royal hunting ground.

Sheep and wild boar roam free in the Forest so care should be taken when driving in the area.

The village of Bream is the ideal place to have your holiday, it offers the usual shops, restaurants and cafés, as well as activities such as caving, abseiling and a high ropes course are available.

Nearby there is the Wye Valley AONB, offering fantastic opportunities and natural beauty, the stunning River Severn is also nearby.

Pippins is a fantastic cottage in a beautiful location.
