Set in the heart of Lydbrook in the Forest of Dean and previously know 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.
What to expect from The Anchor
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 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.
Things to do
On site there’s a hot tub, games room and barbecue area and there’s a couple of acres of your very own woodland orchard to explore behind the house leading to the magical old Forest railway track, perfect for walking or mountain biking. Lovely walks into the heart of the Forest or down to the local and an Indian restaurant to boot.
If you’re looking for a great Forest of Dean holiday, then The Anchor is a characterful holiday home in a fantastic location.
