On site, there’s plenty to keep everybody amused: a games room with table tennis, pool, games for the younger and older guests and a DVD collection; a Hot Tub to unwind after a day’s walking, canoeing or cycling in the Forest of Dean, a barbecue area and plenty of outdoor seating. For the kids there’s our own woodland garden behind the house leading to the old Forest of Dean railway track (now dismantled) which offers a magical (and flat) walk either down to the river or up into the heart of the Forest. On the edge of the village of Lydbrook the nearby facilities are superb: 10 minutes walk through the woods to the river will take you to a wonderful country pub, an organic restaurant and an Indian restaurant or in the village you will find the Wye Fry fish and chip shop and village shop with everything you might need for your stay. ¬†Down at the river there’s a canoe launch and and garden area kept by the village and the Wye Valley Way for fantastic walking.
