This unique and individual property of great charm and character, the original part of which dates back to c1850 has been a much loved family home for the present Vendors over the past 20 years. The property was originally a Foresters cottage built of Forest Red Stone which has been extended and refurbished over the years to provide the versatile accommodation it now offers.

Situated on the edge of the popular village of Blakeney some 23 miles from Cheltenham, 16 miles from Gloucester and 14 miles to Chepstow and the M48 offering onward commuting to Bristol, Bath, London and Cardiff. The village also offers the popular Blakeney Hill Growers Project who have over the past few years brought two parcels of derelict land back into use creating a community smallholding producing goat's milk, eggs, fruit, vegetables and honey with opportunities for local people of all ages to learn fresh skills. Within close proximity also is the historic Forest of Dean which is characterised by more than 42 square miles of mixed woodland and is one of the oldest surviving ancient woodlands in England offering a wealth of facilities for the outdoor enthusiast.

The Vendors tell us when they first saw the property it could only be accessed by a small footpath. They say when they went through the garden gate, turned around and saw the truly spectacular views and knew from that moment on the property was exactly what they were looking for and have enjoyed many years since watching the seasons change over the landscape. The accommodation comprises conservatory, study/bedroom four, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, ground floor wet room, living room, three first floor bedrooms (master with en-suite) and separate wc.
