Go Ape (outdoor activity centre) and cycle paths are just 4 miles away in the Forest of Dean, along with the Wye Valley walk, Puzzle Woods, Clearwell Caves, Lydney steam railway all on our door step.

Hereford, with it's Cathedral, chained library and Mappa Mundi is just half an hours drive, or visit Gloucester for it's docks, interesting museums and Cathedral.
