Oakdean Cottage: Yurt

General

  • Cosy Mongolian yurt with direct walking access into the Forest of Dean
  • Five minutes’ drive to Soudley and 15 minutes’ walk to Blakeney
  • Double bed, shower room, kitchenette, outdoor eating area and campfire

Put your best foot forward during stays at Oakdean Cottage, 15 minutes’ stroll from Blakeney and with direct access to the Forest of Dean’s walking trails.

Roam to your heart’s content, then relax in your rented space: stays here are in a Mongolian yurt made cosy with yak’s wool insulation and a custom-made woodburner. The comfort continues with a double bed and a double sofa bed (handy if the kids are kicking back with you), and there's a clutch of battery- and solar-powered lanterns and fairy lights provided for a bit of ambient sparkle.

The outside of the yurt is just as pretty: it’s built into a steep bank in a quiet and secluded corner of the garden, with five plum trees for neighbours (make sure to pick a few for fruity snacks during your hol).

And as for other sustenance? Make meals in the kitchenette, which comes with a kettle, toaster, fridge, cutlery and crockery, or on the alfresco campfire grill, then tuck in at the picnic bench in the covered outdoor eating area. If cooking isn’t part of the plan, there’s a pub in Blakeney dishing up Sunday roasts and pizzas, as well as a café serving food and cakes.

A shower room with hot running water and a flushing loo is a short 20-metre wander from the yurt.

    We loved the garden very much, the kids really enjoyed the small house on the tree. We enjoyed being so close to the forest, which is beautiful. We saw a lot of deer and we found a swing tied to a tall tree that the kids really enjoyed. The beds in the yurt is very comfortable.

    Disliked: 

    Because we were there in the Fall, heating the yurt with the wood-burning stove wasn’t very convenient, because it was either very hot or very cold (in the morning) although the kids loved it very much. There could be a little more space in the kitchen where we can pack.

Private, charming yurt w patio, kitchen & bathroom in a family garden07/28/2020

    What a fantastic few days! Great social distancing and well thought-out arrangements with everything we needed provided. We had the run of half of the garden which the kids loved. A nice covered patio for us to eat on with an amazing view of the valley made even the rain beautiful. The hosts were very helpful when we needed something but on the whole it was very private - which was exactly what we wanted. And - so importantly - the beds were as comfy as home!

    Disliked: 

    The only thing I can think is it would be really nice to have a way to cover/shade the yurt's skylight as although we really enjoyed watching the stars at night - the dawn woke the children very very very early! Can't really complain though!

From the manager...

Thank you so much for staying with us and for the lovely review! We are so glad you had a nice break.
There is an intimate connection with day and night in the yurt which has it's pros and cons :)

Local attractions

Make it your mission to explore as much of the Forest of Dean as possible when at this park – there’s direct access on foot from the site to the area’s leafy trails. Wander to Bradley Hill for green vistas (15 minutes’ walk) or look out across a carpet of trees (40 minutes) from Blaize Bailey.

If you’ve done all that and are ready to drive, travel 10 minutes to the Go Ape Forest of Dean adventure course for some ziplining action, then mosey over to the local sculpture trail in search of art (15 minutes).

If driving is less than preferable, see the local landscape while chugging along on the Dean Forest Railway (10 minutes) and the Perrygrove Railway (20 minutes) instead.

Hankering after a bit more adventure? Go underground at the Clearwell Caves (20 minutes), glide over to the River Wye for kayaking, canoeing and wild swimming (25 minutes), then calm yourself down with relaxed roams in the Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo (half an hour).
