Garden

Enchanting private garden

Our self-catering accommodation cottage has a wonderful private enclosed garden. You will love sitting under the pergola looking out on it or wandering its length admiring the plants and flowers. A high stone wall topped by wooden fencing and covered by climbing plants separates the garden from the road.

We are delighted to be able to offer you the possibility of letting our holiday cottage with its enchanting garden as your self-catering accommodation in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, UK.

Southerly aspect

The whole main garden has a southerly aspect. The garden patio with its wisteria-covered pergola benefits especially from this as it is not only south facing but also well sheltered. It's perfect for catching the sun at any time of the year.

As an added bonus the garden is not overlooked by any other property which affords Pike House Cottage garden exceptional privacy.

Summer house

At the bottom of the garden through an arch is a Summer house. It's a sanctuary and retreat where you might want to wile away quiet hours or read a good book. On a clear night why not star gaze from the Summer house doorway.

Gardening and hot tub

The beautiful garden and the wonderful hot tub require regular tending or attention so Simon and Ruth come over in the middle of a week long stay to do this. If you stay at the cottage on a week long stay we'll let you know when this will be.

Children and the pond

The garden has an attractive pond with fountain. It should be noted that the pond is not fenced in. This means the garden is not suitable for small children unless they are closely supervised at all times.
