The Royal Forest of Dean is literally 100m up and across the road; there are so many stunning walks it is impossible to name them all.
A massive range of activities for all ages and all occasions; whether it is History/Action/Arts/for Young Children/Nature/Retail therapy or Fine Dining you are looking for. We keep up to date info at the cottage.
We have our own paddock in front of the garden (occasionally there will be sheep/lambs in the paddock -(they are our environmental lawn mowers) and if you wish, it is possible to accommodate horses although it must be noted there is no purpose built shelter in the paddock.
We have uninterrupted views across the valley, a great place to sit with a glass of wine and absorb our wonderful British countryside.
We welcome your pets, but respectfully ask that all flea, worm and inoculations are up to date. Please do not allow pets on the beds and furniture.
The Central England/Cotswolds region
The property was bought for its location, history and the stunning views. It is in an 'area of outstanding natural beauty' which means the land cannot be built upon, set in an elevated position on the edge of the 'Royal Forest of Dean' it nestles in a hillside over looking the Severn valley, it is perfect.
Having travelled extensively I strongly believe that Britain has the best scenery in the world and this area has some of the very best. It is a 1830's detached cottage with no near neighbors to mention, but the friendly village of Mitcheldean is only 0.5miles down the road, the 'White Horse' pub is wonderful and Sandra, Brian and Dan are so welcoming, as are the locals, so if you fancy a old fashioned singsong or a good 'chinwag' in a typical village pub, its the place to go.
Forest of Dean
Mitcheldean is only half a mile away. It is a typical Cotswold village and has a Coop, post office, butchers and fruit and veg shop. The local pub, 'The White Horse' has been described in our visitors book as the "most friendly pub in the world...". There is also a Chinese and fish and chip takeaway in the village.
Cinderforrd, a typical Welsh mining village, is 3 miles away and has numerous shops, banks plus a large Lidl and Co-op supermarket. There are many various takeaways and a few good Restaurants and an old fashioned friendly Cinema, where you get shown to your seat by usherettes.
Plenty of villages and local traditional pubs are within a 5 mile radius of the cottage and many fabulous restaurants. All information about the surrounding area and places to eat are kept in a book at the cottage along with taxi numbers and maps. Our guests regularly update the visitor’s book when they find a hidden treasure and we would encourage you to do the same.

The property is described accurately. It is spacious and ideal for a large family and the large(ish) garden is a treat for birdwatchers. Access to the house is down several steps which may cause diffi… More

"Our wonderful week at Mutlers Row"
Our week at the cottage was great. The accommodation was more than we expected really quaint and roomy. We had our Ruby Wedding Anniversary Party on the Saturday of our stay with 40 guests. This is when the conservatory came into it's own, there was plenty of room.
The rest of the week there was my husband, myself and my son, wife and 3 children and we all had plenty of room
The children loved the garden and also watching the birds in the mornings.
The Forest of Dean is beautiful with so many different things to do we really could have done with more time to see all the sights.
We would recommend the cottage.
