Featured The Apple Store and Gypsy Rose, Forest of Dean

Pretty country cottage and traditional bow-top Gypsy wagon in the Forest of Dean. Rent either or both! Self-catering cottage & Gypsy caravan. Dogs welcome in the cottage. B&B (cereal, fruit, fresh home-baked breads, cakes & pastries each morning) included.

Ideal for walking, cycling holidays. The Apple Store and Gypsy Rose offer great value, cosy, comfortable accommodation. Nestling in a wooded valley on the eastern edge of the Forest of Dean, The Apple Store is a secret hideaway place to stay, a haven for walkers, wildlife-lovers and those seeking a taste of the good life, while Gypsy Rose offers complete seclusion, comfort and romance - ideal for "getting away from it all" shortbreaks.

Apple Store guests can go fully self-catering or simply order from our menu of good, home-cooked meals and escape to the country - your dinner will be waiting for you when you return. No clock-watching - our delicious slow-cooked dishes will be ready when you are!

Gypsy Rose guests get a basket of goodies including a generous slab of home-made cake, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, best local bacon and sausages, milk and cider - with compliments! A basket of logs, box of charcoal, sticks and firelighters is provided; simply strike a match, pull up a log and watch your breakfast cook gently over an open fire with nothing but birdsong to bother you.

Accommodation

The Apple Store is ideal for 2, but can sleep up to 4 (+ baby) with one double bedroom and a double sofa-bed in the sitting room. A travel cot is available. All on one level, so no worries for guests who find stairs a challenge, and with plenty of space outside for 2 cars and a covered patio for storage of bikes, canoes etc, The Apple Store is great for old and young alike.

The Apple Store is the self-contained ground floor of the owner's home - an 1860s farmhouse near Blakeney - comprising a kitchen/living room, separate bedroom and separate bathroom, the whole being on one level. The property is off the road, set in about an acre of garden, orchard and paddock which guests are welcome to use. Private parking for 2 cars on tarmac driveway immediately outside the unit, covered storage area for cycles, motorbikes, canoes etc. A private garden area with BBQ is for the exclusive use of guests. Guests are welcome to use about 1 acre of paddock/orchard, shared with owners.

There is open access to the brook and weir which bounds the orchard; the owner's pets (dog and cats) have free-run of the land, and wild animals regularly visit the orchard.

Gypsy Rose sleeps 2. Children welcome by arrangement. NB Gypsy Rose is a traditional bow-top wagon, accessed across a paddock and via steps, with a small pull-out double bed and space beneath. No disabled access, and not suitable for disabilities, young children or those with a more generous figure!

With Gypsy Rose you get your own glade with fire-pit and BBQ, clean water and a proper flushing loo. There's no electricity; we'll give you lanterns and solar lights, a basket of logs and some charcoal and it's over to you... Step back in time for an authentic gypsy traveller experience circa 1860s. The only nod towards the 21st century we make is provision of a proper flushing lavatory (no chemical or composting loos here, thanks) and clean tap water. Heating comes from an authentic Queenie stove in the wagon, extra jumpers, thermal undies and physical work (getting logs, lighting matches). No fridge, but we've given you a cool-box.

The Walnut Shed washroom & lavatory and car parking on hardstanding are about 25yds away along a riverside path at the edge of the orchard, lit by solar lights in the evening. You'll need a torch or lantern - there is no electricity in the Walnut Shed.

This is comfy camping. You get a small double bed (44" wide, 72" long) in the wagon (bedding provided) but you'll be living outside, cooking over an open fire, boiling a kettle for hot water, and "foraging" for fruit and veg from our orchard and garden as well as finding eggs from our hens and ducks (all in season of course!)
Or you could stroll down to the village chip shop, pub or Italian restaurant; they're just a 10 minute saunter away! Wander back along country lanes and footpaths, sit under starry skies, watch for otters, be serenaded by owls... and woken by woodpeckers!

You're in the heart of the country with 43 square miles of Forest on one side and the Severn estuary a couple of miles away on the other. But you don't have to go far from Gypsy Rose to find Nature - it comes to you! With brown trout and salmon in the brook the heron is a regular visitor, and we're told a family of otters live nearby. Buzzards, red kites, sparrowhawks and of course, owls are among the common raptors here, and we've a wide range of birds who have made their homes in the garden, including wrens, blackbirds, thrushes, finches and tits, and a nuthatch as well as a lovely green woodpecker. From Gyspy Rose you'll almost certainly see the grey and yellow wagtails in the brook, and if you're lucky you might glimpse the blue flash of a kingfisher.

Fallow deer and wild boar are in the woods nearby and sometimes visit the orchard, especially at apple-time. Badgers live on the hillside above, and hedgehogs, foxes and glow-worms visit the garden by night. And of course, there are squirrels (we have a large walnut tree!)

A Great Place for Exploring the Forest of Dean

Away from the road yet easily accessible, The Apple Store is a great base for exploring the Forest of Dean/Severn estuary and Wye Valley with the Forest on the doorstep, dark skies and even a flower-bed (yes, a real bed in the garden) where you can watch the stars go by in comfort!

Children are welcome - there's plenty of space to play in the orchard and garden where there's a trampoline, baby and child swing & rope ladder and a full-size swing-ball and more garden toys coming soon. Paddle in the brook, dabble for "tiddlers", climb a tree, kick a ball, help with the animals or in the garden - we've plenty of space and time for children here.

In Summer, pick your own fruit and veg from our kitchen garden, enjoy a BBQ or Pizza on the patio or picnic by the brook, or simply chill... our south-facing garden enjoys plenty of sunshine from dawn to dusk.

In Autumn, stroll through the woods to gather chestnuts, blackberries, mushrooms and sweet hedgerow fruits - the Forest is on the doorstep! Or just take a walk around the garden for walnuts, figs, apples and plums.
In The Apple Store the Aga ensures you'll always come "home" to a warm farmhouse kitchen. Gypsy Rose has a cute Queenie woodburning stove so the well-insulated wagon soon warms up, and your kettle will be singing on the hob in no time!

Ideal for walkers, cyclists and anyone who enjoys being out and about in the English countryside, there's direct access to the Forest via footpaths and quiet single-track lanes. Well-behaved dogs are welcome and have the run of our paddock for that early morning/late night comfort break. Other pets by arrangement. (Sorry, no pets in Gypsy Rose)

Rural but not remote, the village pub, a 16th Century Coaching Inn, is a 5 minute stroll down the lane and the village of Blakeney boasts a small general store, Post Office, fish & chip shop, Italian Restaurant with takeaway, hairdressers, doctors surgery & pharmacy and church, all within easy walking distance. Lydney, a small town with supermarkets, petrol and garages, a good range of small independent shops and a mainline railway station is 4 miles away. Buses between Lydney and Gloucester pass through the village, stopping about 5 minutes walk from The Apple Store at the end of the road.

Out and about

The Forest of Dean was the childhood home of JK Rowling and used for location shoots in several Harry Potter films. Tolkien found inspiration here too - a truly magical place! A footpath leads from the door into unrestricted woodland, great for dog-walking!

A footpath leads from the door into unrestricted woodland, great for dog-walking! We've meadows of wild daffodils, "bluebell" woods and wilderness coastline on the doorstep for a day's ramble. To the East, many of the migratory birds coming in to the wildfowl trust site at Slimbridge can be seen feeding in the Severn estuary from this side of the river - Slimbridge is just across the water!
