Newland is a picturesque village in the Forest of Dean bordering on the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  The village is built around the magnificent parish church dating from around 1216, which is known as the "Cathedral of the Forest". The Ostrich Inn public house, which dates from 1694, is within 300 yards, and must be one of the most atmospheric pubs in the county. It is a free house serving a varied menu.

The village is two miles from the River Wye, and is well located for walking, cycling and sightseeing. There are four golf courses within the locality.

The town of Coleford is within three miles, where there is a selection of shops, banks and two supermarkets. Monmouth, which is approximately six miles away, has more varied and specialist shopping.
