WHY CHOOSE OUR COTTAGES
Setting & Location
Perched on beautiful Shapridge Hill, at the end of a quiet track, Robin and Wren cottages are a haven of peace and tranquility. Footpaths lead from your door onto a vast network of forest paths. The local town of Mitcheldean (3miles) provides good local amenities, including pubs, Co-op. greengrocer, butcher, Post Office, library with drop-in internet access, and a number of take-aways.
Birdwatching and wildlife
Perfect for the keen birdwatcher, as an abundance of birdlife can be observed from our hide; from nuthatch to green woodpecker and if you are lucky, even red kite! In summer the house martins, swallows and swifts put on a spectacular flying display as they dip and dive over the wildlife pond and garden. Foxes, rabbits, badgers and bats all visit the garden too, so don’t forget your binoculars!
There are many outdoor activities available in the Forest; hire a canoe or a kayak and paddle down the Wye, or hire a mountain bike and take to the cycle tracks which lead you though heart of the Forest and mile after mile of beautiful woodland.
Nearby and further afield
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. Within an hour's drive you could take in the Cotswolds, the Brecon Beacons, or the Malvern Hills.
