Anne's Cottage & the village of Ruardean


Anne's Cottage sits on the edge of the village of Ruardean in the Forest of Dean, some 233 metres above sea level and the River Wye sits majestically below.


The outstanding converted stone stable is situated at the end of a quiet no through road at the eastern end of the village, which is famous for being the 'birthplace' of the Horlick's family of the famous night time malted drink.


The cottage gives excellent acess to walks and the forest from the doorstep.  Ruardean itself boasts marvelous views towards the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons.  It also has its own 'vista' viewpoint to admire the River Wye below and buzzards and other birds which enjoy the thermals created by the drop to the valley below.


The village has just what a village shoud have; a traditional country pub, post office and general stores, garage and an excellent farm, less than 200 metres from the cottage which also has a small cafe.


The centre of the forest and all its outdoor activities is just a short drive away.  The local market towns of Cinderford, Coleford and Lydney are where you will find the normal supermarkets.  But to experience small, independent and specialists shops do visit close by Monmouth.


Whatever time of the year you visit Anne's Cottage you are assured of a very warm, family welcome.
