Overview

About the property

Cottage in Bream, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, England - The Forest Footpath (Gloucestershire Way) Is Only A Couple Of Hundred Metres From Property

Mill Hill Cottage was constructed circa 1850 and was originally built as a forester's cottage being extended in the early 1980's. It sits on a gentle slope and is central to local amenities and a very good local bus route to the nearby market towns of Coleford and Lydney. The cottage is located in Bream, Gloucestershire which is arguably the largest village in England. It is situated in the Forest of Dean which is a former mining area lying between the rivers Wye and Severn. It is known for its free roaming sheep, deer and wild boar.

Short stay in Bream

  • 3 of 5

The owners were quick to respond to email and provided usefull information. The cottage was easy to find and near the centre of Bream where there is a fantastic butchers, Andy's.The cottage was warm with good information of the local area. We would recomend the Woodmans and the Rising Sun in Parkend with brilliant food and atmosphere.
