Dean Estate Agents offer for sale this unique and seldom available three bedroom cottage located along a Forestry Commission road, adjoining and enjoying direct woodland access.
Internally, the cottage offers character features one would expect to include stone chimney breasts, exposed stone walling, stone window reveals, multi-fuel wood-burner supplying hot water for central heating, outbuildings, parking and further historical parking on Forestry Commission land to the opposite side of the access gates.
We describe this cottage as a perfect lifestyle choice for those looking for a woodland location, maybe those looking for a holiday cottage, families that wish to enjoy the thousands of acres of real forest and/or retired folk looking for a nice quiet living area.
Parkend is in the heart of the Forest of Dean surrounded by woodland, yet within minutes' drive of the local towns of both Coleford and Lydney. The village amenities include two public houses and a post office. The village is also home to the Dean Forest Railway.
The larger towns of Lydney and Coleford are approximately 3 miles away and offer a wide range of facilities including shops, banks, building societies, supermarkets, sports centres, train and bus services and various schools.
