Situated in a peaceful forest location yet easily accessible and is on the border with Wales. Close to towns for shopping, Monmouth and Ross on Wye. Walks are accessed directly from the garden. There are multiple Forest walks as well as direct walks to Symonds Yat view point & to the River Wye. The famous Saracens Head Pub is within walking distance along the river or from the view point at Symonds Yat.

From Coleford/Berry Hill/Christchurch side take the road signposted to Hillersland/Symonds Yat roak. You will go past a 40mph and soon after there is a smaller 40mph sign and Rowan tree retreat is immediately on the left hand side after the second smaller 40mph sign. The postcode GL16 7NY will take you too far down the road to Folly lane a tight right turn on the right by a phone box.

If you get that far turn back and we are on the right just before the 30mph sign.

There is comfortable parking for 2 cars.
