Hoolet is situated in a quiet and peaceful location in the village of Awre. It's an attractive semi-detached barn conversion next door to Hamstalls (H193) with which it can be booked jointly. All at ground level, the neat and well laid-out interior makes this a super choice for a cosy getaway for a couple.

The village of Awre lies close to the Rivern Severn on the edge of the Forest of Dean, three miles from Newnham On Severn where there are pubs and a shop. The setting offers excellent views of the river (watch the surfers on the famous Bore!) and almost immediate access across the fields to the Severn Way footpath.
The surrounding countryside has to rate among the finest in central England. The Forest of Dean offers superb walking, cycling and riding on marked trails and is a magical setting with its ancient mines and 300 year old oak trees. From nearby Lydney you can take a trip on the newly opened Dean Forest Railway (steam locomotive to Parkend). The deep gorges of the Wye Valley, where fishing, caving and canoeing can be enjoyed, are only about a 40 minute drive away as is Symonds Yat Rock, a nesting site for Peregrine Falcons. Here you can enjoy long views stretching along the valley and taking in several counties.
There are many ancient sites to explore in the region - the Welsh border castles, Tintern Abbey, the cathedral city of Gloucester - while the Cotswolds, Brecon Beacons and the Malvern Hills are all within easy driving distance.
