Whitehaven is set in an enviable location overlooking the Forest of Dean and has recently undergone significant renovation and extension to provide spacious holiday accommodation for up to 12 people (this property does not accept single sex groups). Very appealing is the large garden and grounds of approximately one acre, with woodland to one side, a lovely pool house, outdoor pavillion, childrens play area, and a sunny patio being the perfect spot for barbecues.

From here you can head off into the Forest of Dean and spend time exploring the area and its many attractions; there's a Sculpture Trail, Clearwell Caves, the enchanting Puzzlewood, a steam railway, and endless fun for those who like the great outdoors - not just walking, but cycling, mountain biking, kayaking and zip wires! With easy access to Cheltenham, Gloucester, Bristol, Newport and Cardiff you won't be short of things to do for days out - shopping, cathedrals to visit, museums, castles...

Maybe you'd prefer something closer and quieter - perhaps a drive out to a country inn for lunch and a pint, or just to go somewhere to admire the beautiful scenery. The views at Symonds Yat are breath taking and if you're lucky you might spot the peregrine falcons that nest there. The picturesque River Wye is within 20 minutes drive, so why not pack a picnic and find a quiet spot to soak up the tranquil surroundings. Endless possibilities for things to do in this lovely part of the UK!
