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.

compact little cottage, near to Forest of Dean attractions

  • 4 of 5

We lit a fire and settled in quickly. From the cottage it was easy and close to various Forest of Dean attractions, like Puzzlewood, Clearwell caves, and our favourite - Kayaing on the river near Symonds Yat. Also nice to walk out from the cottage and easy to walk into the Forest itself. Disappointed not to see wild boars, but saw evidence of their activity! When the weather allowed, it was nice to eat meals in the garden.The cottage was clean, though it would have been nice to have some basic cleaning liquids left in the cottage, and to be supplied with more than one J cloth, one roll of loo paper and one binliner - we were five adults. And for five people there was only a very small towel rail for drying towels. My little double bedroom overlooking the garden was cosy, but the people who slept in the main bedroom had to put extra covers over the mattress as the springs were coming through, the bed was very uncomfortable without those extra layers. Surprised that the owners were not there, as recent emails gave no indication that they would be absent, though we were given a welcome by their daughter. There were lots of pamphlets and a black book giving basic as to shops, amenities and eateries close by, maybe a more personal touch with a book, where people staying at the cottage could write in their impressions, recommendations and suggestions, stories, places they have enjoyed during their stay, would be an asset, and help other visitors enjoy their stay. writing here is limited, a book makes it possible for children to contribute, maybe someone would draw something, leave a poem, ..whatever .....it just makes the place more welcoming.

Our stay in Bream, Forest of Dean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful well maintained cottage for my 50th birthday with family. Having not stayed in this area before we were not sure of what was around the area, but there were no need to worry. Gill and Gordon had supplied a book with everything you could think of from tourist attractions, shops, eateries, you name it. We would definitnitely stay there again and would recommend to friends and family
