Full description

The view from this property is arguably one of the best views in Gloucestershire. The cottage is situated in the friendly community of Blakeney Hill on the edge of the Forest of Dean. It stands in an elevated position with an uninterrupted panoramic view of the glorious Severn Vale and Cotswold Escarpment. The original cottage dates back to 1831. It's a home of much character, beautifully presented, very comfortable. There are three generous reception rooms and a large kitchen breakfast room. There are four bedrooms with a master en-suite and a ground floor bedroom with separate bathroom. Among the architectural features is an impressive oak beam believed to have originated from Newport Dock many years ago. The house is energy efficient due to the income generating solar panels. It has a large terraced garden covering approximately three quarters of an acre with a double garage/workshop and plenty of parking space. Beautiful forest walks are accessible directly from the property.
