    “It's a little dated, felt like it was someone's old house but we expected that and it was very comfy.”

In the quaint riverside town of Newnham in Gloucestershire lies this wonderful retreat, a semi-detached house boasting a stylish interior and excellent outdoor spaces.

1 Ferryside Cottages is a perfect pick for a family of five, or a group of friends, with the area lending itself especially to cyclists, for a blissful break overlooking the Severn estuary.

Head up the two steps and up the path to your own private courtyard, entering the property through the compact but amply-equipped kitchen, which boasts an electric oven and hob for cooking up some delicious feasts, with a dishwasher as well to take care of the clean up!

Next door the dining room holds a table and chairs with touches of bright yellow, this room can host meals, board games and discussions over what your holiday will bring next.

The sitting room is where you'll want to be found after a busy day, with a vibrant theme it holds a sumptuous yellow sofa and two red armchairs waiting for you to wind down, flick on the electric flame-effect fire within the red-brick fireplace, and put the TV on for some evening entertainment.

Art hangs on the painted green wall and French doors flood in the light from the courtyard, in summer step out with a morning coffee and begin your day with some fresh air.

Make use of the excellent private garden which is accessed via a communal path and up an incline to an enclosed space with a lawn perfect for letting the the dog run around, furniture and a barbecue area so you can enjoy long summer nights with tasty food and fabulous company.

Back inside, the final room of the ground floor is the bathroom, tucked away via the kitchen it holds a shower over a bath, so whether you need a quick shower or a relaxing soak, it's got you covered.

Head upstairs to the first floor to find the beautiful bedrooms, all carefully decorated, with a single bedroom holding a dainty iron bed frame alongside an antique-style wardrobe echoing classic beauty from the past.

Next is the double bedroom and then the king-size bedroom, boasting an ornate dressing table and mirror, pretty feature wallpaper and tranquil colour scheme, you'll have no trouble winding down in here.

Newnham is a perfect base from which to explore the Forest of Dean with an array of activities on offer, from taking a ride on the Dean Forest Railway over the 4.5 mile line taking in all the beautiful woodland and countryside, with stations along the way to stop at and explore the local areas, delight in woodland walks, or pop into a local pub for a hearty pub lunch.

About the location


Gloucester 13 miles.

The thriving village of Newnham-on-Severn nestles on the banks of the River Severn. The village 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, 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 a 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. 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.
