Wren Cottage

Pet friendly Wren 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.

Footpaths lead from the front door onto a vast network of Forest paths and tracks; you can literally walk for miles! If you have one, you dog will be super excited to arrive here with so many foresty sniffs to investigate and after all the walking, he or she will be able to cuddle up in the cottage. Pet throws and welcome doggie biscuits are provided.

The cottage has its own gated 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 garden and private patio enjoy magnificent views over a beautiful river valley.

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 all the mod cons of modern living. The cottage is equipped with a wood burning stove for chilly evenings, a comfy leather sofa, and a double ensuite bedroom.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need for a longer stay including microwave, double oven, fridge freezer and dishwasher as well as plenty of pots pans and cooking utensils.

Additional heating is provided by modern convector style heaters.
