The Old Chapel

Romantic, rustic holiday cottage situated on the edge of the village of Yorkley in the Forest of Dean. Woodland walks can be taken directly from the cottage. The cottage oozes character and charm.

Self-Catering in or near Lydney - 1 unit sleeps 4


The Old Chapel, perfect for romantics and perfect for unwinding.

The cottage is situated up a small lane, the 3rd of only 4 properties just on the edge of the village of Yorkley (approx 1,000 inhabitants). There are extensive forest views immediately to the front and left of the cottage, and walking can commence just 4 metres from our front door! During the summer the view outside the cottage is absolutely beautiful. Parking is available just in front of the cottage.

Most of the accommodation in the chapel is on the ground floor, making it suitable for people who find stairs difficult to negotiate, although it is not suitable for wheelchair users.

The lounge/dining room measures approx 5m x 10m (16' x 30') and has pine-clad walls and very high pine ceilings. There is a wood-burning fire, a gothic chandelier and a large 42" flat screen TV with digital channels. All you can see when you sit on the settee next to the woodburner is forest. There is also a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer. The bathroom consists of a bath, wash-hand basin, toilet, bidet and walk-in shower. The kitchen is small but very well equipped with dishwasher, slow cooker and Bosch oven and hob. There is also a fridge-freezer. The first double bedroom is next to the lounge, and the second bedroom is situated up a pine staircase in a gallery which overlooks the lounge; this room has high pine-clad ceilings and lots of pine ballustrading; but it could be dangerous for young children. The floors throughout are mostly natural wood.

The cottage is very well furnished, with everything you might need for your holiday; a real 'home from home'.

Apart from the forest itself, you have easy access (one hour's drive or less) to the following towns: Gloucester, Chepstow Bath, Bristol, Cheltenham, Birmingham and Cardiff and we are only 5 miles away from the beautiful Wye Valley.

We love it here; we find it is just the the perfect place to relax.
