Sanders Cottage is a self catering characterful miner's cottage which has been awarded 4 STARS by Visit Britain. Situated in the middle of the Forest of Dean the cottage is an ideal base from which you can explore miles of woodland walks and mountain bike trails, without even having to get into your car.
Beautifully renovated to contemporary standards, whilst retaining a certain rustic charm, the cottage is situated in a quiet no through road opposite woodland with forest views. Ideal for all ages and activities and doggy heaven.
Double bedroom with an en-suite that includes a walk in shower; light and airy twin bedroom; family bathroom with shower over the bath; a sitting room with wood burning stove and a dining area; a reading room; a well-equipped modern kitchen with dishwasher plus table and chairs; and a boot room with fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer.

"Great forest accommodation!"
Liz and Alan were extremely attentive landlords, providing a welcome basket and local information. We were visited by friends and family while there and Liz very kindly brought around crayons and paper and a dolls house.
The cottage is in an excellent position complete with a sun balcony and has all necessary facilities to provide the perfect forest stay with or without dogs.
My only disappointment, but quite understandable is that short stays are not available during peak season :(
