One of two idyllic holiday cottages situated in a peaceful, rural location on the Severn estuary next to the Forest of Dean. These well equipped, ground floor cottages look out onto a traditional apple orchard, which is maintained under a Country Stewardship agreement, and have views of the river and, on a good day, to the Malvern Hills. They are close to a network of footpaths, including the Severn Way footpath, and ones into the Forest of Dean. The cottages have been converted to a high standard and are run in an as environmentally friendly way as practical: underfloor heating is powered by a heat pump taking heat from a ground loop, waste is recycled, rain water is collected and used on the garden, low energy bulbs used, cleaning materials are 'green' etc.
Both cottages are graded 4 stars by Visit Britain and Hamstalls is graded Mobility Level 1 on the National Accessibility Scheme.
Hamstalls is a wheelchair accessible, ground floor property with under floor heating throughout and comprises of 2 bedrooms, 1 double bedroom with ensuite bathroom and 1 bedroom with either a super king size bed or twin beds, and an ensuite wet room with toilet and hand basin. The Living/dining room has a log burning stove, flat screen TV, DVD player, and a well equipped kitchen. There is a small garden with patio, lawn, garden furniture and BBQ. Two cars can comfortably be parked in front of the cottage. Access is available to the Severn Way footpath either via the nearby public footpaths or directly through the owner’s (and their Labradors’) garden, to the edge of the river.
Dogs are welcome, by prior agreement, though we do charge and extra £20 per pet. The two orchards in front of the cottages can be used for dog walking purposes provided, of course, the sheep are not in them!
The Forest of Dean, with its ancient mines and 300 year old oak trees, and the Wye Valley, with its meandering river, vertical rock faces and oenological view point at Symonds Yat, together offers some of the country’s best out-door activities including, cycling, walking, boarding, canoeing, caving and a “Go Ape” tree-top adventure site. Also, within a short car journey one can find many children’s attractions, museums, castles and mines, while an hour’s journey will take you to Cardiff, the Black Mountains, Bristol or Gloucester and Cheltenham.
Alternatively, you can just relax at the Priory Cottages enjoying the views, the Cotswold sheep grazing in the orchards, the wide variety of birds and, periodically, watch the famous Severn Bore. See below for recommended towns and attractions near Hamstalls.
