George Cottage

Stone cottage, with open fire, fire pit, hot tub & wood fired sauna. Great for wedding, family or festive season extra beds. Great for 3 couples doing the great outdoors & wanting to unwind.

Self-Catering in or near Mitcheldean


Relax at this lovely warm & cosy stone cottage, filled with quirky art work and books, with a hot tub, firepit, BBQ, open fire and outdoor wood-fired sauna.

It is in a village location so close to shops and take-aways but has a private courtyard and has direct access into the woodland and ancient forest nearby.

If you live locally and you have extra family coming to stay and don't have enough bedrooms you are welcome to contact us. Or you can book the cottage for the weekend with local friends and use all the spa facilities after mountain biking or walking.

It is ideal for 3 couples or friends and families - there is a bedroom for 3, a bedroom for 4 and a double sofa bed downstairs in the second sitting room.

If travelling from Bristol by car –

By far the quickest route is via Chepstow and along the A48 towards Gloucester on the Welsh side of the river. This avoids all the small villages in The Forest itself, and any potential rush hour traffic or road works in Gloucester. Remember to take the left hand slip road signed Forest of Dean and Chepstow, after the brow of the hill, and go over the OLD BRIDGE – if you go over the new bridge by mistake, take the M48 back to Chepstow on the Welsh side of the river!

Proceed along the A48, and through Newnham on Severn – about 30 minutes. Out the other side of Newnham, and through Broadoak, and under a railway bridge – you will pass Glevum Conservatories on your right, and a Texaco Garage on your left. Continue up the hill after the Texaco Garage. You will see signs, on the right hand side of the road, to Flaxley and Mitcheldean. The turning itself is on the left and fairly concealed, on the brow of the hill, before a cottage.

Mitcheldean is 4 miles from this point, along beautiful country lanes. Follow signs for Flaxley, past the abbey and chapel, and then proceed right to Mitcheldean. Once you enter Mitcheldean, at The Lamb pub, turn left onto the mini roundabout, and then immediately right. When you see the church in front of you and the now closed George pub on your right hand side, you have gone too far! The entrance to the cottage is through a small square arch between houses, and you follow the dog leg path to the very end where you will see George Cottage signposted.

If travelling from London or the North –
Come off the motorway at Gloucester, and leave it on the A40 – the Ross and Monmouth Road. Continue on the A40 and follow signs for Ross-on-Wye, until you reach the village of Huntley. Then turn left at the lights, taking the A4136 for Monmouth. On arrival into Mitcheldean, The Lamb Pub will be on your left. Turn right at the mini roundabout and proceed over the brow of the hill. as above.
