Brook Farm Barns
Situated on the outskirts of the village of Adsett, on the edge of the Royal Forest of Dean are these two holiday cottages, located on a family-run livestock farm amongst peaceful surroundings. These beautiful cottages have been lovingly created from old farm buildings and each has been individually furnished and decorated, retaining many original features, and offering ideal accommodation to get away from it all and enjoy country living in a beautiful location. Positioned either side of a courtyard, both of these cottages have private outdoor areas, as well as a shared seating area with a communal barbecue area. These two holiday cottages are in a superb holiday location near the Royal Forest of Dean, and are surrounded by many lovely walks and cycle routes, whilst being within walking distance to the village pub, which serves good food and real ale. The village is also home to Westbury Court Garden, a charming 17th century Dutch Water Garden, owned by the National Trust. Enjoy countryside or riverside walks right from the doorstep of these cottages, and the more energetic can try surfing the River Severn's tidal bore or challenge the nearby high wire rope course. The waterfront city of Gloucester, with its Victorian docks, and the riverside towns of the Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth, with their timbered Tudor buildings and excellent pubs, shops and restaurants, all offer superb days out. Return to these charming cottages, where you can sit and watch visiting wildlife and farmyard activity, or stroll through the fields and enjoy wild swimming or peaceful picnics beside Westbury Brook.

About the location
Forest of Dean 2 miles; Gloucester 9 miles; Ross-on-Wye 13 miles.
The little hamlet of Adsett is very well situated, just one mile from the village of Westbury-on-Severn offering a Post Office, a traditional pub serving real ale and good food and the National Trust property of Westbury Court Garden, a 17th century Dutch Water Garden. Also close by is the magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering numerous trails that can be explored on foot, bicycle or horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are on offer for the more adventurous, whilst fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this unspoilt area. Just a short drive away, in the historic waterfront city of Gloucester, you will find Roman foundations, Victorian Docklands and a spectacular Norman Cathedral (whose cloisters were used as a location in the Harry Potter films). A little further afield, visit the historic market town of Ross-on-Wye, with timbered Tudor houses and excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, in the heart of rural Herefordshire. The Severn Estuary, famous for its tidal bore, is a delight for bird watchers, wildlife enthusiasts and bore surfers alike. This unspoilt area has something to offer at any time of the year.
