With fabulous views from the Cottage, the decking is a great place, at any time, for al fresco dining, a few beers or a glass of wine and nibbles; it's only overlooked by the birds, so feel free to relax and kickback.

A short walk away, grab a beer and some traditional pub food at The Royal Springs Inn; or seek out many cafes, eateries and pubs, many serving local ale, in the forest, at Symonds Yat, Goodrich and local villages.
