Set in the heart of Lydbrook in the Forest of Dean and previously known as The Anchor Inn, this cosy village pub, which dates back to the 15th century, is now a charmingly converted holiday cottage designed as accommodation for large groups.

Complete with bar and woodburning stoves, we’ve done our best to retain the feel and ambience of the old Anchor Inn while modernising sympathetically. For an outdoor, activity or family holiday you couldn’t be better placed.

The Anchor has 7/8 bedrooms, all en-suite, sleeping up to 22 people, plus there’s a ground floor room with sofa bed and its own bathroom for the elderly or frail. Some bedrooms have their own tv’s.  The bedrooms at the front have a great view of 18th century superstar actress Sarah Siddon’s house.

The large kitchen is great for preparing meals for everyone at the 20 seat dining table.

"Seriously beautiful stay at the Anchor Inn. Stunning scenery and the walks are a perfect getaway! Highly recommend walking along the Wye! The Inn is enormous, still haven't used half of the rooms and enjoyed the spacious jacuzzi! Overall, loved the weekend and will recommend to any large group."
