Newnham on Severn, Forest of Dean & Wye Valley Cottages
What a gorgeous name!!! If tranquility and peace are what you require, then Hoolet is the ideal choice for you! Located down a quiet and private road, this cure little barn is a sweet retreat away from the hustle and bustle of busy life. Set about 100 yards away from the River Severn, you are in one of the most unusual locations imaginable. You've got super views across the river and the surrounding countryside and the walks are simply gorgeous - your pooch will be very happy!
Inside the barn is very comfortably furnished, there is an open plan living area that leads to a large bedroom with ensuite bathroom. We feel it is very sweet and romantic and a great place to come to, to totally relax and unwind.
It's all on one level making it easy to move around and if you wish you can book next door too (Hamstalls (H193)) to make it friendly affair for the week or weekend.

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.
