Full description

The Pike House is the most charming Grade ll Listed property situated in the heart of the Forest of Dean on the outskirts of Parkend village in walking distance of the local pubs, Post Office, shop,cafe and school. There is direct access into surrounding woodland. Given the position it would serve as an excellent holiday cottage. The original Pike House was built in 1860, a later sympathetic addition has resulted in a unique picture post card home of character. Accommodation includes three reception rooms and three double bedrooms, the master being ensuite. The garden is a delight, mature and fully landscaped with pretty water features, sheltered courtyards and useful stone outbuildings. There is plenty of parking space. An impressive landmark home in a lovely location, a real gem.
