The Gloucestershire region
Platts House Cottage is an ideal base for exploring the Royal Forest of Dean, Wye Valley,Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds, Bristol, Bath and the West Country and Cardiff and South Wales.
The village of Woolaston has a charming country pub, a restaurant and a village shop and Post Office all within walking distance of the cottage. Supermarkets and other shops are within a 10 minute drive.
Many footpaths are easily accessible from the cottage, and the Gloucestershire Way and Offas Dyke are 10 minutes away. The Sculpture Trail at Speech House is also nearby.
There is fantastic mountain biking in the Forest of Dean as well as family cycle trails. We are next door to superb trout fishing lakes at Woolaston Court and a 5 minute drive from the peace and tranquility of Clanna Ponds where fly fishing is also available.
For keen golfers there are 7 courses in the Forest of Dean and 18 across the Wye Valley including the Celtic Manor Resort, host to the 2010 Ryder Cup. For water lovers there are several leisure centres close to hand and The National Diving Centre is a short drive.
Less than 10 minutes by car is the footpath which leads to Devils Pulpit, from where there are stunning views of Tintern Abbey. From here walk down into Tintern itself and stop off at the Anchor Pub for a well deserved pint and bite to eat! A 20 minute drive will take you to the internationally famous viewing point at Symonds Yat Rock, one of the best views in the uk, or
take in the grandeur of Tintern Abbey on a drive along the beautiful Wye Valley en route to the market town of Monmouth.
