The bustling village of Westbury-on-Severn lies on the banks of the River Severn and offers 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. Nearby the thriving village of Newnham-on-Severn is steeped in history and offers specialist shops to suit all interests, along with traditional pubs and cafes. This charming village, part of which is designated Conservation Area, has a tree-lined main street, many listed buildings, a striking central clock tower and is ideally located for watching the spectacular Severn Bore. The Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers 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, while fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are also available. Gloucester is just a short drive away, where you will find Roman foundations, Victorian docklands and a spectacular Norman cathedral (whose cloisters were used in the Harry Potter films). Littledean, with its unique Jail Museum and Quadrophenia Collection, Westbury Court Garden, the only restored water garden in the country and the ancient caves and eerie caverns of Clearwell Caves (as seen in Dr Who and Merlin) make for great family day out. The ancient market towns of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth have excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, plus many black and white timbered buildings, or visit the historic walled town of Chepstow with its celebrated race course and impressive Norman castle. Also Cheltenham is well worth a visit with its famous Gold Cup horse racing. A little further afield, discover the beautiful Malvern Hills, Black Mountains and Brecon Beacon National Park. A great location for a relaxing break or activity holiday at any time of year.
