A warm welcome awaits you at Workshop Cottage
A charming and characterful single storey, dog friendly holiday cottage in a beautiful part of the Forest of Dean on the outskirts of Blakeney, Workshop Cottage is nestled in a picturesque valley with its meandering brook and spectacular woodland backdrop.
If you are looking for tranquility and seclusion with woodland walks on the doorstep or simply a place to take time out, relax and unwind with a good book and a glass of wine, then Workshop Cottage is the place for you.
The cottage has its own private terrace next to the babbling brook and overlooks the idyllic island gardens.
It really does offer the best of both worlds – the privacy and seclusion of the countryside but with the convenience of being only a 15 minute walk from Blakeney village, which boasts a popular fish and chip shop, local shop and pub.
Workshop Cottage is located in the quiet hamlet of Pitching Green, near Blakeney, in the stunning Royal Forest of Dean. Surrounded by spectacular scenery that changes dramatically through the seasons.
Recently converted from a joiners’ workshop, Workshop Cottage offers a range of home-from-home comforts and facilities and boasts a well appointed kitchen, modern bathrooms and comfortable living and bedroom areas.
Take advantage of the beautiful gardens with the babbling Black Pool Brook trickling through. Relax in the gazebo and take in the majesty of the surrounding forest. There’s something for everyone to see and do!
A Haven for Wildlife
In our beautiful valley you can discover a wealth of wildlife. With a little patience (and a bit of luck!) you may encounter all manner of wonderful and fascinating creatures. In the garden we regularly see a large variety of birds including grey wagtails, stonechats, kingfishers, dippers, blackcaps, nuthatches, tree sparrows, tree-creepers and woodpeckers.
The Forest of Dean is also home to the largest population of wild boar in the UK and they are often spotted in the woodland surrounding Workshop Cottage. There are also healthy numbers of roe deer and muntjac around.
On a smaller scale, we are lucky enough to have a huge variety of butterflies, beetles and slow-worms can often be found hiding under foliage or fallen leaves. Whether you’re a keen ornithologist or just a casual observer there’s bound to be something to catch your eye either in the garden or in the woodland around.
