Visit the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley for breathtaking views, acres of ancient forest and wild river valleys. Spanning the three counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Monmouthshire, this region will surround you with nature, tempt you into adventure, and fascinate you with its heritage.  

This is where the boughs of the cider orchards hang heavy and the rivers offer fishing, canoeing and even one of the world’s biggest tidal surges, the Severn Bore. It is where the forests are home to ancient trees, steam trains, wildlife, exhilarating zip wires, as well as hiking, biking and sculpture trails.

Amongst the unique landscape of forested hillsides, rocky outcrops and unspoilt villages you will find castles, museums and cathedrals aplenty, foodie spots to satisfy, and gorgeous places to stay from log cabins, cute cottages to stylish boutique hotels and quirky glamping spots.
