The Rookery Cottage has been sympathetically converted to provide accommodation for two to three adults in Newland, a picturesque village in the Forest of Dean bordering on the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Cottage is a converted stable - the original building is over 150 years old and is adjacent to a coach house conversion. Legend has it that a Derby winner was once stabled there. The cottage provides well equipped and comfortable accommodation. There is a private enclosed courtyard garden solely for guests and their small dog’s use next to a babbling brook. A bridge across the brook provides access to a larger grassed garden that is also fenced and shared with the owners and their Jack Russell. 

The area outside The Cottage provides ample off-street parking for two vehicles. The gravelled courtyard garden is well stocked with both climbers and scented tubs. There is also a barbecue and table and chairs . An umbrella is available for shelter on sunny days. The brook adjacent to The Cottage runs from Coleford down through the valley to Redbrook a charming walk for those looking for a gentle stroll. 

The village pub, The Ostrich is a five minute walk from the cottage and welcomes dogs, with free treats and water provided for your dog to enjoy.
