Newnham nr. Gloucester
Gloucester is an historic waterfront city full of Roman foundations, Victorian Docklands and an impressive Norman Cathedral, the cloisters of which were used as a location in the Harry Potter films. The thriving city centre is home to a superb range of shops, markets, pubs, restaurants, and other attractions for visitors. The city is an enjoyable base from which to explore the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean, which offer many country walks and picturesque villages. The Eegency town of Cheltenham is an easy drive away, and offers fascinating Georgian architecture and the world-renowned Gold Cup horse racing. There is so much for all the family to do in this lovely area, no matter what your interests.
Encompassing the Cotswolds, Shropshire and the Welsh Borders, this true “heart of England” offers honey coloured stone cottages, country towns and tranquil countryside. Shropshire delights with its variety. Whether exploring the castle, narrow streets or fine dining of Ludlow, strolling by the river in medieval Shrewsbury or discovering delightful Church Stretton, Bridgnorth or Bishops Castle, you can be assured of plenty to see and sample. Even the museums and attractions are wide ranging; from the industrial investigations to ecologically informative nature centres, and even the chance to step back in time and visit a working Victorian village. Even the landscape alters, from the hills, heaths and deep wooded valleys of the Welsh borderlands to the magnificent, moorland scenery of the Long Mynd, while the beautiful Teme, Clu, Corve and Onny valleys host an amazing variety of wildlife. You can even take a walk on the wild side among the legendary Stiperstones, at Wenlock Edge and within the stunning Clee Hills. Herefordshire offers visitors the chance to journey through lush green countryside, enjoying splendid black-and-white timbered villages, a magnificent cathedral city, a fairytale Georgian castle at Eastnor or books galore in famous Hay-on-Wye. And if all that touring leaves you thirsty, lashings of Herefordshire cider should do the trick!
