French windows leading into the enclosed courtyard garden.
The sitting rooms are furnished with comfy settees and have colour
television and video.
The kitchens are well equipped and include oven with grill, microwave
oven, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and toaster. The
dining areas are furnished with pine farmhouse table and six chairs.
Upstairs the cottages have bathroom with loo, basin, bath and
electric shower over the bath, and three bedrooms. The rooms are
furnished throughout with solid pine furniture, and bedrooms are
equipped with wardrobe, dressing table with stool and drawer space.
All beds have duvets.

Newland is a picturesque village in the Forest of Dean bordering
on the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It contains
a number of substantial houses. The village is built around the
magnificent parish church dating from around 1216, which is known
as the "Cathedral of the Forest". The
Ostrich Inn public house, which dates from 1694, is within 60
yards, and must be one of the most atmospheric pubs in the county.
It is a free house serving a varied menu.
The village is two miles from the River Wye, and is well located
for walking, cycling and sightseeing. There are four golf courses
within the locality.
The town of Coleford is within three miles, where there is a selection
of shops, banks and two supermarkets. Monmouth, which is approximately
six miles away, has more varied and specialist shopping.
