Local Area Information

The countryside cottage is located in Tibberton, a small peaceful village in the Forest of Dean that sits mid-way between the pretty market town of Newent and the cathedral City of Gloucester.

Outdoor Activities

Perfect for walkers and cyclists, the cottage sits in open countryside; there is a myriad of footpaths, bridleways and country lanes right on the doorstep. A cycling route popular with cycling clubs directly passes the property, and The Wysis Way and Three Choirs Way pass just a few hundred metres from the cottage door.  

Additionally, the cottage offers an ideal base from which to explore the local area as it is centrally located between the Forest of Dean, CotswoldsMalvern Hills and Wye Valley, all are known for their stunning views, wildlife and range of outdoor activity options and are within 15 miles of the cottage. 

Shopping & Dining Out

The City of Gloucester, only 10 mins drive away, with its newly redeveloped historic docks offers a range of cafes, bars and restaurants and outlet shopping in the Gloucester Quays.  The regency spa town of Cheltenham, renowned for its shopping, theatre and festivals, is just a 20 minute drive.  Tewkesbury, Ledbury and Ross-on-Wye can all be reached within a 30 minute drive.

The area benefits from a wide selection of good country pubs, cafes and restaurants.  Whether you’re looking for a pub lunch stop on a country walk, a cafe with toddler play space, or special evening dining experience, we would be delighted to make recommendations to guests.
