  • "Although quite unassuming when first viewed the Tallet/Boar is an absolute hidden gem, it has everything you want and need for a relaxing stay, perfectly situated to reach an endless parks, lakes, woodlands and of course the amazing forrest of Dean and breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside."

    We both agreed it was one of the best weeks away we've ever had together and this was as much down to our wonderful hosts Jeremy and Becky as everything else. We have already recommended a visit to friends and family. Unforgettable!

    Thank you for the feedback, we are so pleased that our first ever guests had a great stay and we hope to see you again soon! Jeremy & Becky Property Owner

About the location


Gloucester 16 miles; Monmouth 16 miles; Ross-on-Wye 17 miles.

The ancient village of Blakeney lies on the southeast edge of the Royal Forest of Dean and was once a site of a Roman Villa dating back to 75AD. Equidistant to Gloucester and Monmouth, the village boasts many 16th and 17th century buildings, with a charming 16th century coaching inn, and also offers a good selection of amenities including a fish and chip shop, village store and Post Office, as well as numerous walks and cycle routes. The magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, boasts numerous trails that can be explored on foot, by bike or horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course can be enjoyed by the more adventurous, whilst fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities available in this unspoilt area. The eerie caverns and ancient caves of Clearwell are close by, as are the Gloucestershire Way and Offa's Dyke Path for wonderful walks. Close by, Symonds Yat boasts natural scenery and straddles the beautiful River Wye with its magnificent limestone rock, popular with climbers, and well known for its viewpoint. Visit the historic town of Monmouth, which offers a fusion of elegant Georgian mansions and Victorian courtyards, or the lovely town of Ross-on-Wye with its timbered Tudor houses and delightful riverside walks, both home to excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. The unspoilt Malvern Hills, Brecon Beacon National Park and Black Mountains, as well as lovely Cotswold towns and villages are just a little further afield.
