Whitehaven is a lovely big house right on the edge of the Forest of Dean; heaps of space, 6 bedrooms, a games room, an indoor pool and a huge garden with a play area and an outdoor dining pavilion. All the ingredients for a very happy large group stay, whether it’s a family holiday, birthday celebration, reunion of friends or corporate break.

So, go and explore the forest; you’ll find plenty of cosy country pubs serving local ale and home cooked food, and there's no shortage of family attractions, cycle trails, walks and activities. Get out on the river with Canoe the Wye or SUPYOFI Stand Up Paddleboarding at Symonds Yat, hire bikes from Pedalabikeaway in Coleford, go pony trekking with Severnvale Equestrian Centre near Chepstow, or try bushcraft, archery, raft building and gorge walking at Forest Adventure Activity Centre. All good fun for families and corporate team building!

Take the youngsters to Clearwell Caves or Puzzlewood; have a ride on the Perrygrove Railway, go to Slimbridge Wetland Centre, the aMazing Hedge Puzzle or the Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo. History buffs will be in their element with places like Chepstow Castle, Caerwent Roman Town, and Tintern Abbey. If you can’t do without your retail therapy go to Gloucester and whilst you’re there see the magnificent cathedral and Blackfriar’s Priory. Garden lovers will adore Westonbirt Arboretum and Dewstow Gardens and Grottoes, and if you don’t mind venturing a little further for a day out there’s Sezincote and Sudeley Castle. Discover the Cotswolds, pootle about the gorgeous little villages like Bourton-on-the-Water, Moreton-in-the-Marsh and the Slad Valley where Laurie Lee grew up, visit the Cotswold Wildlife Park, Cotswold Motoring Museum or the Cotswold Water Park.

"10/10 - As we were only staying for three nights we made use of the facilities in the property. The swimming pool was excellent for the grandchildren. Greatly enjoyed by all. We would have all liked to stay longer. A very clean and well kept property."
