Sleeping 20 in 7 bedrooms with 2 more in the Sofa bed, The Anchor, which served the village as a pub for over 300 years, might have been designed for large group self catering holidays. The setting is beautiful and the location magical. If you want to stay home, you couldn’t have a better spot: play games, relax in the hot tub, sit in the garden soaking up the sun, barbecue on the terrace, stroll down to the river bank, and call in at the Forge Hammer for a quick drink and chat with the locals – you’d be hard pushed to find a lovelier spot and if catching up with friends and family is your object this is the place to do it.
We have carefully converted this charming village pub by retaining many of the original features and decor from its trading days. Indoors there’s space to sleep 20 in 7 bedrooms, with a couple of cots for the little ones, and you all get your own bathroom: 6 of the 7 rooms are en suite while the other has its own opposite. On the ground floor the snug houses a sofa-bed with adjoining bathroom and loo which is also handy for evening bath time for children. There is an extra wc cloakroom with disabled separate lavatory as well.
The Dining Room is in the oldest part of the house with vaulted ceiling, decorative lights and its own old bar and barrel holders recovered from the former pub days, retained for character and convenience. The table can comfortably seat 20 and the whole experience will make you think you’ve stepped back in time.
Above all you’ll be staying in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley surrounded by some of Britain’s loveliest unspoilt countryside.

We stayed here for a week for my mum's 50th and it was absolutely amazing! We had a big age range and it suited everyone, my 1 year old loved it! Extremely clean House and the facilities available were more than you could want! Pool table, ping pong, hot tub and DVDs etc if you want a quiet evening, among many more. All of our party would stay here again! It's a remote location but close to loads of different towns so great variety! Loved it!

Great House - clean, fresh, well looked after. We love the walk to the river and to the handy store up the hill. The House gave a space and space and togetherness as we chose. Awesome place.
