Newnham on Severn, Forest of Dean & Wye Valley Cottages
This is a wonderful property, steeped in history. Occupying the entire first floor of the South East wing of an ancient and historic grade II* listed country house, Dean Hall Apartment provides very spacious and well appointed accommodation. It has deservedly been awarded 4 stars Gold by Visit England. Guests have the shared use of the beautiful and extensive grounds surrounding the house, including a grass tennis court and croquet lawn. There is a sheltered, cobbled courtyard just outside the apartment - a real sun-trap and perfect for taking it easy on a sunny day.
Light and extremely spacious, the interior of the apartment has been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard and provides a comfortable and relaxing base for a holiday in this unspoilt and interesting part of Gloucestershire.

A fantastic location for exploring the woods and paths of the Forest of Dean - a paradise for walkers and cyclists, and the Cotswolds is not far either (Cheltenham Jazz Festival and Cheltenham Races are great attractions). If watersports are more to your liking then you have the River Severn close by or the River Wye a little further away.
For a day out, why not visit some of the fascinating historic sites and buildings the region has to offer. Symond's Yat, a famous beauty spot on the Wye, and the magnificent ruins of Tintern Abbey further downstream are both 30 minutes drive away. A little further afield are Offa's Dyke Path, the Welsh Border castles, the historic cities of Gloucester and Worcester and the Cotswolds.
Almost on the doorstep is the attractive Georgian village of Newnham-on-Severn which provides local shopping.
"Spacious, Clean, light and airy. Tucked away from the main house, but with lovely views."Banks
"As we wanted to revisit the Forest of Dean after spending many years caravaning there, we wanted to stay somewhere quiet and peaceful. This fits the bill perfectly. The apartment is spacious and well stocked with everything we wanted. It is within walking distance of the village with its convenience store and two pubs. The gardens are lovely and guests are welcome to wander ,and even have a barbq! One thing to look out for is the daily emergence of bats from the barn outside the front door. A delight every evening at dusk. One drawback is the short steep stairs from the front door to the rest of the apartment, everything else is on one floor. The owners live in another part of the large mansion sized house and made us very welcome."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-07-05
"A wonderful base for exploring The Forest of Dean and charming villages and towns. But this estate ranks above everything for its gardens history and comfort. The gardens and wildlife including cats, Billy and Sam, are enough to prevent you from straying from the front gate. Further afield, Sunday roast lunch at the Saracens Head pub, Symonds Yat East is a must do. A morning in beautiful Ledbury and lunch at the Talbot Inn is another must. Many thanks to our hosts and we can only admire you for your passion and for your gardens and historic manor."Mr Nachef 2017-05-01
