Introduction

Situated at the end of a long no-through lane The Tin Barn, which shares the same location as Rose Cottage and The Red Bus, enjoys an idyllic setting on the edge of the Forest of Dean, with a lovely outlook across and along a valley to woodland beyond. The sense of being ‘away-from-it-all’ and of peace and tranquillity is apparent from the moment you arrive with only the sound of birdsong and sheep bleating on the opposite hillside to break the silence.

Imaginatively conceived by its very creative owner using 90% reclaimed materials, The Tin Barn is the perfect retreat for a honeymoon or a romantic weekend away, the piece de resistance in the accommodation being the highly impressive, ornately carved four poster bed. The interior is tastefully decorated in traditional Farrow and Ball colours and the spacious, open plan living room has a woodburner for cosy romantic evenings together. Outside, the partly fenced garden area below the barn affords privacy without compromising the restful views across the valley.

This is the perfect base for exploring the many and varied attractions of this lesser known part of Gloucestershire between the rivers Severn and Wye. The Forest of Dean with its network of footpaths and cycle tracks is right on the doorstep, the Wye Valley with its dramatic, steep-sided limestone gorges a little further. Historic sites such as Tintern Abbey and Chepstow Castle as well as Gloucester Cathedral and the Cotswolds are an easy drive. The nearest town, Newnham-on- Severn, provides a range of local shops and is well worth visiting for its well-preserved Georgian buildings.

Accommodation

Approach along a brick-paved pathway from parking area up three steps to a paved entrance area. Open plan living room with lots of natural light emanating from the two sets of French windows which also afford great views; sitting area with corner sofa, woodburner, flat screen TV and dining table. Hand-built, solid wood, fitted kitchen. Double bedroom with feature, Tudor style, 4 poster bed; good views from both windows. Three steps lead up into an en suite ‘period’ bathroom with roll-top bath, heated towel rail and make-up area with dressing table.

The gravelled garden area, a few steps below the accommodation, is the ideal spot to spend the evening relaxing with a barbecue after a full day exploring the area. Just beyond this, the open, grassed area blends seamlessly into the surrounding countryside.
