The village of Awre is three miles from the Forest of Dean, renowned for its walking, cycling, canoeing, photography, bird life, animals and has historical market towns and pretty villages all steeped in history.

The Old Vicarage has a large selection of bedrooms: groups can choose the rooms which are best for their group. There is the newly renovated Stables with a large kitchen/dining room/conservatory. It has an upstairs lounge with fabulous views and a discreet 3' guest bed, which can be zip and linked to make a double or used as two singles. There is also a top quality, generous sized sofa bed. These need not be used as there are many other bedrooms. The Stables has two double bedrooms, one ensuite and there is another sofa bed in the conservatory. This is in case families or groups want to be self contained in the Stables. In addition in the adjoining main house there are four double bedrooms of which one is ensuite and one a twin. There is also one small single. In total there are bedrooms for 13 and beds for 18. However there is a maximum group size of 12. Prices can be negotiated depending on the number of bedrooms in use. In the main house there is a drawing room with open fire. The owners live in the main house, but guests have their own separate entrance and accommodation.

There are extensive gardens, the Stables has its own private garden over looking the Severn and there is a huge BBQ area under the canopy of mature oaks. If some guests prefer, they can be B & B and enjoy the tranquility of the dining room in the main house. The accommodation is ideal for workshops for photography, writing, literary, church groups and those either riding or watching the Severn Bore.
