These two holiday properties form part of Hopebrook Farm, a non-working farm which dates back to 1745. Sitting in 5 acres within the grounds of the owner’s home, both properties have been stylishly furnished with great attention to detail for guests’ comfort. Interestingly, the Lea Line disused railway tunnel is part of the land which can be explored. A natural spring stream runs through the peaceful grounds, with seating areas to relax and unwind, or enjoy some wonderful walking with access directly from the side of the paddock onto the public footpath network. This is a great central location for exploring Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and The Forest of Dean. Historical places of interest include Gloucester Cathedral with its fine central tower dating from the 15th century, and Hereford Cathedral with its Mappa Mundi Centre. The Forest of Dean offers an array of outdoor pursuits, cycling, walking, riding, climbing and fishing to name but a few. The picturesque Wye Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers stunning scenery and canoeing on the Wye. Cheltenham is only about a half-hour drive and is especially popular for the Cheltenham Gold Cup and other horse racing festivals. The Literary Festival has also grown over the years to major international prominence, but festivals aside, the town itself is well worth visiting. Guests are also within easy reach of Ross-on-Wye and further afield, but within an hour’s drive are the towns of Monmouth, Usk, Abergavenny and the pretty villages of the Cotswolds. Shop 2 miles, pub serving food ½ mile.
