George Cottage

George Cottage is a traditional stone cottage based in the heart of the Forest of Dean ancient woodland.  But that is where tradition stops. The cottage is funky and unconventional with bedrooms that are themed – birds of paradise, vintage rose and woodland sheepskin. 

It is set back from the road at the end of a little dog leg path behind other cottages and so is quiet and serene, with views of the hill behind – whilst affording direct access to the village amenities – late co-op store, post office, library, take-away food choices, pub etc.

It has a private courtyard with a hot tub, fire pit and small portable BBQ, an outdoor wood fired sauna cabin and in the house – an open fire. There is also a full compliment of cocktail making equipment indoors for making thirst quenchers to while away your time in the tub.
