Viney Hill Country House is a wonderful period house originally built in 1741. Having been extended and renovated in recent years, the property is set in approximately an acre of lawns and gardens, overlooking the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside and adjacent to the magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, which is situated between the River Severn and the Wye Valley.
This is a great base for the numerous attractions of the Forest of Dean, so it's an ideal location for any kind of activity holiday - walking, cycling, horse riding, and for nature lovers. With easy access to Cheltenham, Gloucester, Bristol, Newport and Cardiff, it's also a pretty good base for those who like to indulge in a bit of retail therapy. If you want to shop locally, the little towns of Lydney, Coleford and Cinderford are close by. And if all you want is peace and quiet and open air and the space to explore footpaths and cycle tracks right on your doorstep, then Viney Hill is great for you too. Whatever your interests, this is a superb location for all.
The spectacular views at Symonds Yat and the River Wye are less than 20 minutes away, and the famous Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail is even closer, at about 10 minutes drive. The surrounding forest area offers many different local attractions, including the Dean Forest Railway, Go Ape, (High Wire Forest Adventure), Perrygrove Railway, Clearwell Caves, Hopewell Mine, and the Dean Heritage Centre. Other places easily reached include The National Bird of Prey Centre at Newent, Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust, Prinknash Abbey Bird and Deer Park, and the popular Welsh mine - Big Pit is only an hours drive. Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole and West Midland Safari Park are also within easy travelling distance for a day out.
