A charming & characterful single storey cottage in a beautiful part of the Forest of Dean on the outskirts of Blakeney, Workshop Cottage is nestled in a picturesque valley with its meandering brook and spectacular woodland backdrop. It really does offer the best of both worlds - the privacy and seclusion of a rural location but with the convenience of being only a 15 minute walk from Blakeney village with its pub, fish and chip shop and local shop.Read More
