This converted barn (Originally built in 1690 renovated in 1996) is situated in beautiful countryside between the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean, overlooking the river Severn, conveniently on the A48 and just over 2 miles from Chepstow.

Nestling in the southwest corner of Gloucestershire, with direct access across the owners land there are walks in all directions to explore the area, including the Offa's Dyke foot path and Tintern Abbey. It is close to the Wye Valley, Brecon Beacons and family attractions in the Forest of Dean. The National Diving and Activity Centre are also nearby enjoy zip wire rides, water walking, fly boarding as well as diving for all abilities. An equestrian centre is opposite the house for guests wishing to go horse riding. For those looking for quieter activities take a look at Chepstow Castle and bridge which sits above the Wye or a round of golf at the nearby golf course. Lastly, a visit to Chepstow would not be complete without a visit to the racecourse, home to the Welsh National each year. Pubs, shops and restaurants in Chepstow 2 miles. Farm shop/deli within walking distance.
