Brook Cottage and the 1 bed Red Cottage is situated in the charming village of Blaisdon, 10 miles west of Gloucester City, on the edge of the Forest of Dean. This immaculately presented property straddles the Longhope Brook that flows through beautiful gardens under several cleverly constructed bridges.
