Welcome to Oakgrove Holiday Cottage
Relaxing holiday escapes in England
(on the border of Wales)
Oakgrove Cottage offers an ideal location for a relaxing holiday in the peace of the countryside and as a base to explore the wealth of treasures around the area. This wonderful detached cottage is ideal for a couple. Renovated and converted from a pigsty, this cottage is full of charm and character, with simple white stone walls contrasting with dark oak woodwork and an interesting feature window.
Oakgrove Cottage provides a relaxing rural vacation rental. Overlooking the River Wye with breathtaking views of the valley, Oakgrove holiday cottage boasts an envious position in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Shielded from a rural country lane by woodland and fields, and reached by a secluded driveway, this holiday rental has direct access to local footpaths, bridle ways and Offa's Dyke footpath.

The area has a different picture to unveil each month of the year. Use footpaths to explore the woodlands and discover hidden beauty spots. Or, if you prefer more rugged pursuits, there's a choice of canoeing, kyaking, paddle-boarding, horse-riding, rock climbing, absailing, caving and cycling on marked trails, mountain bike parks or off-road.
The Wye Valley can be inspiring throughout the year, perched above the mist in the valley. Prepare to be bewitched by the colour of the ever-changing trees, or the seasonal delights of bluebells, wild garlic, and daffodils. The area has an abundance of wildlife. Badgers, deer, pheasants, buzzards and woodpeckers are frequent attractions.

"A beautiful, clean and well equipped cottage in an idyllic location with the warmest hosts. An ideal base to explore the beauty of the Wye valley both by car and foot. Visits from badgers and the friendliest sheep we have ever met just added to the joy of our visit. We highly recommend this place for an unforgettable break to unwind and recharge”

"My wife and I have just spent an idyllic week staying at Oakgrove Cottage. It certainly lived up to the description provided on the website and more. By booking a holiday in the Forest of Dean we were looking for a retreat to spend a week relaxing away from traffic and noise and eneral hussle and bussle of urban life. Paul and Gina Butler were wonderful hosts."
