About Oak Cottage

Suitable For

Glamping only. Adults only. Well-behaved pets are welcome.


Oak Cottage is situated on the Offas Dyke Path and the Wye Valley Ramble, so there are plenty of walking and cycling trails on your doorstep. Hire canoes for a day of adventure on the Wye (all hire outlets let you hire for half or full days and pick you up downstream, so you need only drift along with the current). Tintern is a 10-minute drive away, home to several pubs as well as a vineyard, brewery and the gothic Tintern Abbey in all its roofless beauty. If you’re a Netflix fan, you might also want to visit the main filming spots from Sex Education, all nearby – The house Otis lives in with his mum is just up the road from Oak Cottage and so is the corner shop they regularly visit; Anna will happily give you directions to both if you fancy trying your luck at getting a cameo role! And for the film buffs, the Forest of Dean is around a 20-minute drive away; J.K. Rowling lived here as a child, likely why it features in the film version of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, as well as other films like King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Food & Drink

The Miners (01594836632) in Sling is a 15-minute drive away; the gastropub has won lots of awards for their modern British food made from local produce and is made even better when paired with their servings of local ale. Owner, Steve, has worked with some of the best chefs in the country, and it shows. The oak-beamed Globe Inn (01594528300) in Alvington is under five minutes away in the car or a little more than a half-hour walk. It has a cosy log fire in winter and a good beer garden in summer. The Ostrich Inn (01594833260) in Clearwell takes around 20 minutes to reach. It's dog friendly and has a large walled garden and outdoor patios for enjoy the summer sunshine.

Birthday getaway

Stayed a couple of nights for a relaxing birthday getaway- and what a treat. Everything was so cosy and peaceful. Beautiful fresh eggs and milk in the morning for the perfect birthday breakfast too!

Great experience

If you stay in the yurt like us you must get the hot tub extra! Lovely idyllic stay, yurt with log burner was so warm inside, comfortable and homey. Just make sure you take plenty of bright torch’s as it gets very black at night, could do with some fairy lights leading to the toilet and around the hot tub. The kitchen had a hob to cook food and a kettle for a morning coffee. A small fridge and a large cool box which is all you need. Shower was amazing! The host was so lovely and friendly, I can’t remember his name (youngish chap) but he was so welcoming and made sure we had all we needed without disturbing us. Be great to return with another couple as you are quite close to the cabins. We had a nice walk to the village and has lunch in the pub. The yurt is super dog friendly and our host made my yappy puppy feel just as welcome as us. Highly recommend!

Amazing Yurt experience

A very quality campsite & yurt - if you go be sure to get the Hot Tub package! It's heated by a fire and right outside. Yurt was comfortable, Anna and Rowan made us feel super comfortable and were right there if / when we needed anything. Amazing hikes right around. For off-grid living, good comfort and quality place. Would def recommend to anyone.

The best holiday!

Well what can I say… Anna and rowan are the best holiday hosts I’ve ever met. They were so attentive to everything that we needed. When we arrived It was so hot, so a cold shower was so refreshing (there is hot water too) But the shower, the toilet, the cooking station and the yurt itself were so clean and tidy, even down to the small things like the area outside the yurt was swept and clean. The hot tub was lit and at a lovely temperature for us when we arrived also!! During our stay we had a cool box and with the lovely heat we had we had to use lots of cool packs, they would get warm by the end of the day but a text to rowan or Anna and they were down in a flash with more. There is so much to do and so much to see around the area that we only really slept at the site and didn’t stay for much during the day. I had the best sleep that I’ve had for a long time, the mattress was so comfortable and the sheets were so crisp and fresh! It just made me feel like I was at home. I have recommended to everyone and I will most definitely be back in the future no question. Anna and Rowan, THANK YOU!! X

Peace and Quiet

Spent 2 nights in the Cabin and it was lovely. Everything was clean and tidy on arrival and the hot tub fire was lit and ready to use. Set in a lovely clearing surrounded by trees and 2 horses which liked to say hello. Great location as so many places to visit within 30-40min drive, wished I could’ve stayed longer to explore more.

Getting There

If you’re travelling south, exit the B4228 by turning right onto Coldharbour Road. Stay on this road for a mile and then turn right, Oak Cottage will be on your left from here. To reach it go down the unsealed track signed ‘restricted byway’ between Fayland and Oakwood house. You will then see parking spots and signs for Oak Cottage on your left.

The closest train station is in Lydney. Bus No.69 to Monmouth stops at Brockweir bridge but, from there, it's a 30-minute walk to the campsite.
