The Anchor, a large Forest of Dean Holiday Cottage once served the Lydbrook area as a country pub. This dog-friendly home has recently been thoughtfully converted to offer self-catering accommodation for large groups or multi-family holidays in the Wye Valley. The Anchor sleeps up to 22 guests in 8 bedrooms (6 en-suite) in a house designed to accommodate and entertain large groups for holidays, celebrations, reunions and family gatherings amidst some of the UK's picturesque and peaceful countryside.
It's just a short stroll to The Forge Hammer, a nearby pub or down to the banks of the River Wye. For 'stay at home days' relax in the hot tub, enjoy the large games room with a table tennis and pool table, picnic and BBQ in the woodland garden or take a riverside/forest walk. A ten-minute walk through the woods along the dismantled Forest of Dean railway track bed gives you the choice of an attractive country pub, an organic or an Indian restaurant, while in the village the Wye Fry fish and chip shop and a village shop offer further culinary fulfilment and supplies.
