Holiday cottages in the Forest of Dean

map for holiday cottages in central englandA prime holiday destination in Gloucestershire is the Royal Forest of Dean, squeezed between the rivers Wye and Severn on the borders of Wales, it's a beautiful area of ancient woodland, with its own very distinct character, often overlooked but easily reached.

The Forest of Dean offers a lot of variety to the holiday visitor, the ancient Royal Forest, covering over 27,000 acres, lies at its heart. The Wye River Valley, a designated of Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, separates England from Wales and is an excellent area for outdoor activities such as walking, climbing and cycling, as well as canoeing, white water rafting and fishing on the Wye itself.

In contrast, the very English Vale of Leadon, to the north of the forest, offers rolling farmland, vineyards, black and white timber framed buildings and the attractive market town of Newent.
