About the property

A two bedroomed self-catering holiday cottage in The Forest of Dean, within walking distance of The Wye Valley on the Welsh Border.

Although the Forest of Dean was designated as the country’s first National Forest Park, it remains one of the best kept secrets. Situated between the Rivers Wye and Severn, this former royal hunting ground provides a magical setting for walkers, cyclists, and nature lovers – and The White Horse pub in the village provides excellent food if you don’t want to do your own cooking!

The Buckstone House, home to Doug and Nikki Smith, is set in three acres of gardens and grounds in the village of Staunton, three miles from Coleford in the Forest of Dean and Monmouth in the Wye Valley. The Welsh border runs through the edge of the village, a stone’s throw away. The Coach House, which was converted in 2005 overlooks the lovely garden.

The accommodation is a delightful combination of antique furniture, tasteful furnishings and the comforts of modern living and consists of two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, well equipped kitchen and large airy living room. The Coach House has been designed to be disabled friendly and has a stair lift, wide doors and easy access. There is high speed Wi-Fi in The Coach House.

While we welcome children, parents should be aware that The Buckstone House Coach House has two double bedded rooms on different floors and also that the pool is not “child-proof” so it is not suitable for some families.
