Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden

Reached by a woodland track from a country lane and standing on its own in an attractive clearing by a trout pond, which is fed by a small stream, The Old Pumphouse is a real 'hideaway'. Three miles from the small town of Lydney, the property is within easy distance of all the attractions of the Forest of Dean, the Wye Valley and the Border castles (Chepstow is 9 miles away). The whole area is ideal for walkers and cyclists and the owners have made special footpaths through the surrounding woods for the particular use of guests. The Estate also has a craft centre, a model village, a garden centre and a wholefood restaurant, 2 miles away.

The building was converted in 1997, creating large, light and airy spaces and has undergone further refurbishment, making it a highly desirable, unusual and interesting property in a very peaceful and attractive setting. It has been graded 4 stars by Visit England.
