    About this property

    Hidden within the lively village of Mitcheldean you will find Ostlers. This idyllic detached cottage offers a wonderful countryside retreat for couples or a small family of four, travelling with their canine companion. Open up the delightful green cottage door and step inside the bright and airy open-plan living space, decorated with pretty neutral tones. Take a seat on the stylish grey sofas and catch up with friends as you watch a movie on the flat-screen TV, and begin to plan exciting activities for your time in the area. Wander over to the well-designed kitchen and begin to make tasty treats for a scenic picnic out in the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or whip up a mouth-watering family meal with the help of the contemporary electric oven. Climb the staircase to the first floor and be greeted by a homey double bedroom boasting its very own en-suite shower room, so you can delight in an invigorating shower before grabbing your toasty towel from the heated rail and getting ready for the busy day ahead. Across the way two pretty oak beds make a charming twin bedroom, ideal for guests who wish to escape from the excitement and enjoy some peace and quiet as they lose themselves in a dramatic book. The first floor also features a contemporary shower room boasting a spacious double shower and stylish black tiles. Spend time out in the courtyard whether it be on a warm summer's day as you bask in the sunshine, or on a crisp winter's morning as you sip on a warm cup of tea and watch as the dog plays happily in the space. Be sure to pack your Waterproofs as there is so much for you to see and do during your time in the area. Visit the majestic ruins of the 11th century Goodrich Castle, sitting proudly on the hilltops within the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or wander through the ancient King Arthur's Cave before a canoeing adventure on the Rive Wye. Set out on the enchanting Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail or spend time with the family at the nearby Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo or the aMazing Hedge Puzzle located in Symonds Yat.For a thrill, visit The International Centre for Birds of Prey or if you are a train enthusiast, take a trip to the Dean Forrest railway. Take the children to the local playground or grab your bikes for a relaxing yet scenic cycle. Book Ostlers for the ultimate family holiday to the fantastic Forest of Dean.

    Nestled in the east of the magnificent Forest of Dean, you will find the picturesque village of Mitcheldean. This charming community has all the essentials including a supermarket stocked with all the necessary items, a friendly local pub and a number of delightful cafés and independent eateries. Lose yourself in the rich history of the area with visits to Barn House, St. Anthony's Well and Goodrich Castle, or embark on incredible hikes through the breath-taking Wye Valley or Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

    Vanessa ‐ 1 Oct 2021
    " Ostlers was so comfortable, warm and snug. Well equipped with the added bonus of a lovely private garden, a bit of a sun trap so even in October we could sit outside. The owner was very helpful and left the most delicious cream tea and home made marmalade as well as other essentials on arrival. A great base for exploring the Cotswolds "

    " Everything we needed was provided and more! Lovely touch of homemade scones with jam and cream on arrival (delicious!) as well as tea, coffee, milk and bread and homemade marmalade. My dog was also welcomed with a tin of dog treats - what more could we ask! Garden was perfect for dog all safely enclosed so no worries. Cottage was clean and seemed all freshly decorated. Great location lots of places to visit nearby - would definitely recommend. "

    " It was clean, modern with everything you could need. Pat the owner was very friendly and left us a welcome pack of home made scones jam and cream as well as bread,milk and butter. Also dog friendly and a secure garden. Would recommend this cottage to anyone . "
    Mrs Walton ‐ 1 Jun 2021
    " Pat had kindly left us fresh bread, milk and butter also homemade scones with clotted cream and jam, all very delicious. Ostlers is a very nice conversion of an old stable and we were very impressed with the comfortable modern accommodation tucked away down a narrow lane with the local convenience food store just a few minutes walk away. We visited Gloucester, Ledbury, Hereford, Ross on Wye and Chepstow with ease by car and also walks in the Forest of Dean. "
    Mrs Hirst ‐ 1 May 2021
    " Just the right size for a family of 4 and great having 2 bathrooms. Only a short drive to the wye valley and main things to see in the Forest of Dean. Highly recommend! "

    Mr Willoughby ‐ 1 Aug 2020
    " However both bathrooms were beautifully appointed. We realize this was a cottage and cottages are usually on the small side but it was a bit of a nuisance to have to drag out a table and chairs for mealtimes. Our host Pat Nixon was wonderful and very friendly. We arrived to scones and jam and cream left for us plus several useful staples. She couldn't have done more. Parking tricky for two cars a bit tricky and a very tight turn into the lane. Ideal for a walking holiday and some wonderful pubs around for good food "
    Mr Blanchard ‐ 1 Aug 2020
    " She struck a perfect balance of being around, but never interfering. Welcomed with a cream tea and milk in the fridge, perfect.Ostlers is an excellent little cottage, with everything you could ever need as a base to explore the Forest of Dean and beyond. Will book again. "
    Mrs Lott ‐ 1 Aug 2020
    " The property was in excellent condition and was very very comfortable and homely. All the facilities were in excellent condition and the garden was a great space to sit in in the evenings. We found Ostlers to be a great base to visit lots of places of interest that were only a short drive away by car. Our host was friendly and welcoming and we would not hesitate in recommending Ostlers to anyone. Many thanks for a lovely holiday destination. "
    Mr Barnes ‐ 1 Aug 2020
    " The Host was a lovely lady, who checked we had everthing we needed and even left us a homemade cake (which was lovely by the way), and tea/coffee milk etc and dog treats ready for our arrival. Would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone looking for a break in or around the forest of dean area "
