About Robin Cottage

Robin Cottage is one of a cluster of romantic hideaways at Dean Cottages.

Perched on a sunny hillside at the edge of the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley, Area of Outstanding natural beauty, the cottage is a haven of peace and tranquillity and perfect for those who enjoy nature, walking, biking, canoeing and fishing.

The cottage enjoys magnificent views over a river valley. Footpaths lead from the front door onto a vast network of Forest paths and tracks; you can literally walk for miles!

The cottage has its own private patio for outdoor dining and taking in the wonderful panoramic views! There is also an additional 1/3 acre wildlife garden with it’s own bird hide and pond which is alive with frogs, newts, and stunning dragonflies.

The cottage itself has been lovingly restored by owners Lis and Karen. The cottage retains its rustic charm, with its stone fire place and oak flooring, and yet it has a light and airy modern feel. The kitchen, bedroom and bathroom have lovely countryside views. The cottage is equipped with a wood burning stove for chilly evenings, a luxury Italian leather sofa, and a comfy King Sized bed in the spacious double bedroom.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need for a longer stay.

The bathroom is clean, bright and modern. It is fitted with a bath with shower over.

Additional heating is provided by modern convector style heaters.

Included in the price: electricity, free unlimited WI FI, basket of logs, milk, luxury biscuits, and local award winning apple juice, teas and coffee for your arrival. Also included; thorough cleaning prior to your arrival and upon departure as well as bedlinen and towels for two.

There are many outdoor activities available in the Forest; hire a canoe or a kayak and paddle down the Wye, or a mountain bike and take to the cycle tracks which lead you through mile after mile of beautiful woodland.

For those interested in history, within half an hour there are the Dean Heritage Centre and the border castles of Chepstow and Goodrich to name but a few. A bit further afield, Hereford cathedral where you can view the famous Mappa Mundi, Tewkesbury Abbey and Gloucester Cathedral are well worth the visit.
