    “The house was lovely and comfortable.”

    Very dog friendly too. The friendly owners next door were always on hand to answer any questions. A perfect base for exploring the Forest of Dean.

About the location


Symonds Yat 8.5 miles; Gloucester 14.5 miles.

The charming village of Drybrook, a former royal hunting ground, lies in the heart of the Forest of Dean and offers visitors many amenities, including a village store and Post Office, butcher, fish and chip shop and village pub. The area boasts many Nature Reserves, the closest being Wigpool Common, a 19 acre SSSI, a great place for nature lovers to see many rare species of flora, fauna and birds. The Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers numerous trails that can be explored on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are all on offer for the more adventurous, whilst fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this unspoilt area. Drybrook is located close to the delightful market towns of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth, whose timbered Tudor buildings, striking 17th century market halls, majestic bridges, excellent shops, pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes, all make these areas a must to visit. Stroll along the banks of the beautiful River Wye, take a river cruise or view the stunning countryside from a hot air balloon! Explore Goodrich Castle, a perfect example of a 12th century 'Marcher Castle', or enjoy the renowned walks along Offa's Dyke and the Wye Valley Walk. Just a short drive away, in the historic waterfront city of Gloucester, you will find Roman foundations, Victorian Docklands and a spectacular Norman cathedral; you may recognise the Cloisters as they were used in the Harry Potter films. Visit Symonds Yat with its towering rock where peregrine falcons breed or The Severn Estuary, famous for its tidal bore and a great place for wildlife enthusiasts. A great Gloucestershire cottage for a memorable holiday at any time of year.
