Set within the heart of a traditional mining village, this rustic handcrafted bolt hole is simply perfect for couples wanting to escape and step back in time.
The village of Ruspidge sits on the fringes of Cinderford within the heart of the Forest of Dean. You can leave the car behind and gain access into the forest by foot, stroll down to the Soudley ponds or meander through the woodlands with deer and wild boar, or take in the sheer climbing face of the Shakemantle quarry. The Dean Heritage centre is within easy reach where you can step back in time. For cyclists you can access the Forest on the many cycling trails or explore the downhill mountain bike trail. You are also within easy reach of the Wye Valley great for rock climbing, river walks, kayaking and caving. Other attractions include Hopewell Colliery, Goodrich Castle, Go Ape, the Sculpture Trail and Cyril Hart Arboretum.
