Wainlete, Pingry Lane, Clearwell, Forest of Dean
The picturesque village of Clearwell is on the edge of the Forest of Dean, south of Coleford in an attractive valley adjacent to the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Wainlete is a very well equipped spacious one bedroom cottage originally built c. 1700, restored and extended to provide a high standard of accommodation. It is located on a quiet country lane in a row of four cottages, with parking outside the front door. We welcome you to a haven of tranquillity - away from the hubbub of modern life, a real ‘cottage’ feel but with a home from home range of amenities and facilities.
Clearwell lies within a Conservation Area and there are many fine buildings in the village, typically constructed of local red sandstone. Notable among these buildings are Clearwell Castle and the Church of St. Peter. Tourist attractions are Clearwell Caves and Puzzlewood. The village hosts Good Pub Guide pubs and restaurants, while the Ostrich at Newland, famed for its good food is a mile and a half away.
The neighbouring market town of Coleford is 2 miles away and offers further facilities including 2 Golf Courses, various Shops, a Post Office, Banks, Supermarkets, a Cinema and petrol station. Many places of interest are easily accessible with Tintern Abbey (6 miles); Chepstow (10 miles); Symonds Yat (10 min drive) and Hereford, Gloucester, Cheltenham, Bath, Worcester, The Malverns and South Wales all within easy reach.
The cottage is an ideal romantic retreat for two, quiet with luxurious surroundings, spectacular walks and views from the front door, and a log fire and CDs for a cosy night in!
The gourmet will find first class restaurants and there are plenty of friendly local pubs to while away many a happy hour.
A paradise for walkers having many varied walks on the doorstep: there are maps and books provided in the cottage, covering leisurely strolls to full day hikes in the Forest, or along the Wye Valley and Offa’s Dyke paths.
All in all, Wainlete is the perfect setting for a leisurely break away from it all, and with central heating and log fire it is cosy at any time of the year.
