Large country house sleeping 20 with a bar, games room and hot tub, for families and friends visiting the Forest of Dean
Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. The Anchor, Lydbrook, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, sleeps 6 - 20 in 7 bedrooms.
We've converted this charming village pub to provide a venue which will ensure you have a genuinely memorable holiday.
Indoors there's more than enough space to sleep 20, with a couple of cots for the little ones, and each bedroom has it's own bathroom, 6 en suite and one adjacent. The ground floor houses three reception rooms, one of which has a double sofa bed with an adjacent bathroom, ideal for the less mobile members of the group.
The atmospheric lounge has a wood burner, satellite TV, DVD player and music system, while the old world dining room with its barrel vaulted ceiling sings of days gone by and accommodates everyone round the table. There's an additional dining table in the adjacent kitchen.
On site, there's plenty to keep everybody amused: a games room with table tennis, pool, table football and more; a hot tub to unwind after a day's walking, canoeing or cycling in the Forest of Dean; a barbecue area and plenty of outdoor seating where you can chill and enjoy the sound of birdsong from the surrounding woodland. Is there much to do? Take a look at the tourist information website.
In the heart of the village of Lydbrook the nearby facilities are superb: 10 minutes walk will take you to a wonderful country pub, an organic restaurant, an Indian restaurant, a canoe launch on the river, and the Wye Valley Way for fantastic walking. Walk up through the woodland above and you'll land on the old Forest Railway, a beautiful even track that winds its way down to the river or off into the Forest - a kids paradise for exploration and adventure.
5 minutes drive will take you into the heart of the Forest of Dean with its staggering array of activities for people of every age and interest. If that's not enough, you're only 10 minutes drive from Symonds Yat, Ross on Wye, Coleford and Monmouth with numerous award winning options for dining out.
