Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Oatfield Country Cottages, Forest of Dean, sleeps 18 in 9 bedrooms.

In a beautiful setting, down a meandering country lane and through ancient cider orchards gently grazed by sheep, the cottages of Oatfield nestle in the picturesque countryside of the unspoilt and relatively undiscovered Forest of Dean.

Oatfield offers a tranquil rural haven, sleeping 2 to 18 people in 5 cottages with dining together for 14 (or more for buffet meals). The cottages are all within a few metres of each other, so you can easily get together with your group or retreat to the privacy of your own cottage.

Pimpernel sleeps 4
Meadowsweet sleeps 4
Celandine sleeps 4
Campion sleeps 4
Harebell sleeps 2

The cottages have been beautifully converted from linked historic 17th Century farm buildings, with rear lawned gardens backing onto farm fields and courtyards and cottage gardens to the front. You will find an abundance of oak beams, fully equipped kitchens and wood burning stoves for the chillier winter evenings.

Cots, high chairs and stair gates can be provided on request.

The cottages can be booked singly or in any combination, and work well for large family groups where you can be together or retreat to your own private space. Pimpernel's huge living room is big enough for everyone to get together, and can dine 12-15 with ease.

A designated parking space is provided on the gravelled drive for each cottage with additional spaces available on grass outside the barn. Dogs (other pets considered) are welcome in all cottages; baby- or pet-sitting available by arrangement.

Surrounded by rolling farmland and a woodland walk, the five comfortable self catering cottages are equipped with everything you need, and include a welcome pack with homemade bread and jam.

- Pets and children made very welcome

- All-weather tennis court, croquet lawn, games room

- Superb freshly cooked meals to order

- Secluded countryside location with optional spa treatments

- Safe children's outdoor play area & animals

- Wood-fired sauna (for use by all cottages) and wood-fired hot tub (for Pimpernel: requires users to keep the fire going!)
