The house has 4 double bedrooms, 3 with twin beds, 1 with double bed, all with ensuite bathroom or shower room.
The kitchen has a washing machine, dishwasher, microwave and fridge-freezer. The lounge has satellite TV and a wood-burning stove.
The separate dining room can seat 10 and has a speaker for an mp3 player. There is a basement room with futon and a DVD. There is also a spacious, sunny garden room.

There are two pubs nearby, both serving fantastic food and real ales. The Fountain Inn is 100m from the house; The Woodman is 300m away on the other side of the cricket field.
The Dean Forest Railway provides a fun outing on a standard gauge heritage railway, operated by steam trains. The station is just 200m from the house. Trains run from Parkend to Lydney and back during the holiday season, with several stops along the way.
The RSPB Nagshead Reserve is a short walk from the house. The Forestry Commission woodlands are open to visitors and provide extensive footpaths and cycle tracks.

From the A48 south of Blakeney take the road to Viney Hill and Yorkley down into Parkend.
Drive over the level crossing, with the railway station on your left.
Cross the road and 100 Metres beyond the Fountain Inn, turn right on to a gravel drive and enter through the gate on the right.
Please close the gate after you enter - sheep are allowed to roam freely in the forest and will happily move into the garden if the gate is left open!
