    Really cosy accommodation set in the most beautiful countryside. Great for walking, or short drives to explore the local area. George, who was onsite pretty much the whole time, was really helpful with local information and anything else we needed. Top marks for the amazing hot tub!

    We are thrilled to hear that you had a delightful time at The Tin Barn, and enjoyed exploring the surrounding areas. Please do come again in the future! Property Owner

    We found plenty to do despite it being early February. The owners were very laid back and accommodating of our dog, letting her roam around the grounds with no restrictions. The walks in the area are stunning. Hot tub was a great addition and was lit and stocked up by George daily who was also helpful with suggestions for walks. Would definitely recommend for a totally relaxing stay.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad to hear that you (and your dog!) had an amazing stay at The Tin Barn. We would love to welcome you back in the future - especially with the nicer weather! Thank you once again for providing us with your lovely feedback. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at the tin barn, loads of beautiful land to explore with our dog."

    George was extremely helpful with helping us find some beautiful walks. Unfortunately we arrived Sunday with no electric in the kitchen and lounge area which took until Wednesday to be repaired, and the Wi-Fi is extremely hit and miss. But all in all we had an amazing time away, we would definitely consider returning :)

    Thank you for your feedback on The Tin Barn. Unfortunately some water got into one of the kitchen sockets causing the issues which meant they needed to dry out. We appreciate George was on hand to help navigate the areas that were affected to ensure power was available. Due to the rural location of the property the wi-fi is definitely temperamental. Happy to hear you had a lovely stay and we would love to welcome you back in the future. Manor Cottages Property Owner

    Lee and Jane were welcoming , nice welcome pack too. Their friend George was also friendly and worked hard to keep the timber hot tub going and also gave some good recommendations, eg symonds yat east and boat trip, Cyril hart arboretum. After a year and a half both working in frontline services during the pandemic it was such a good place to relax with great view. Our recommendations are the food truck at the Severn and wye smokery ( outstanding), Sunday lunch at the miners sling, lydney harbour and walking over the lock gates for a fab walk and views of the Severn bridge, going into Monmouth, Just relaxing at the tin barn

  • "It's a beautiful place tucked away in a tiny hamlet of Popes Hill, just on the edge of Forest of Dean."

    Warm welcome from the family, Lovely welcome gift much appreciated. Layout very private, even though there were properties nearby you did feel on your own most of the time. Nice views out from the hot tub, although the trees that add privacy do restrict some of the views but you can't really have both - a bit of selective tree works would improve it I think. Didn't use log burner as we were blessed with brilliant weather all week, unusually for mid September, very lucky. Property is generally very good - lounge and kitchen excellent. Bed looks really nice but could do with a new mattress in our opinion. Bathroom feels small but is functional - would have preferred a shower but space is limited. The hot tub is managed by the family, they put logs on and it gets hot, it is really pleasant, and gets to a good temperature. We spent most of our late afternoons/evenings in there and it was great. Overall it is a lovely place, nice people and in a lovely part of the world.

    Our stay at the Tin Barn was absolutely amazing! From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel completely at home. Lee even helped carry our shopping in. The trip was a present from my partner for my 50th. She couldn’t have booked anywhere more romantic. Lee and Jane have created a little piece of heaven here. The Tin Barn was a real home from home. They’ve thought of everything you might need and provided it. The welcome hamper was a really lovely gesture and crammed with gorgeous goodies. This has definitely got to be one of the best places we’ve ever stayed and we can’t wait to go back. Save a biscuit or two for Edna and Jessica, the resident goats as they have a sweet tooth. Our tips would be the Woodman Inn for a lovely Sunday lunch and Symonds Yat for a pretty walk. Thanks for everything Lee, Jane and family.

    Thank you so much for your feedback which is very much appreciated. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and everything was beyond your expectations.

    The property is in a wonderful rural location and is run by Lee and Jane, helped by their family. The Hot Tub is a great addition and was kept up to temperature for us to use when we needed. We are walkers and we had plenty of choice including walks from Newnham itself. Definitely recommend the steep stroll from Symonds Yat East up to Symonds rock. The view from the top is stunning. The property is well equipped for self catering but there was no microwave for space reasons so we took our slow cooker which out friendly hosts were happy for us to use and this worked well for us alongside the electric cooker. Wouldn't want to spoil your fun so will let you take in the wonderful views from the site and also the impressive London Bus ! Would definitely visit again

  • "The Tin Barn (Pope's Hill) We have just stayed at The Tin Barn."

    Well what can I say ……… a real delight to behold!!! Situated on a farm on Pope's Hill in the picturesque Forest of Dean. On arrival, you can park directly outside, so it's easy to unload all your luggage. There is a beautiful patio and gravel area and a wrought iron patio set overlooking beautiful woodlands. There are two other holiday lets, a fabulously converted double decker bus & a cottage for families. There are horses, goats, chickens & dogs on the farm. The Tin Barn is adults only. Perfect for a romantic getaway, with a beautifully restored antique four poster bed & woodburner. On our arrival, we were greeted with fresh flowers in a vase, a basket of fresh croissants, scones, jam & freshly laid eggs from the owners chickens. (You can also purchase these). In the fridge there was milk, butter & clotted cream. Perfect for unorganised people like us who forgot to bring anything for breakfast!!! Cupboards are stocked with everything you would need, cutlery, crockery, glasses, pans, etc. Also, washing up stuff supplied. So either go & cook for yourself, or there are takeaway places 10-15 mins away & a Lidl to stock up. There is a TV, comfy leather sofa. Gorgeous trendy filament lighting. All in Farrow & Ball colours. As said, the bedroom has a beautifully ornate four poster bed, lovingly restored. Heavy ornate curtains separating the 3 rooms. Held up by curtain poles with quirky finials. The bathroom in up 3 steps from the bedroom, with a roll top bath, sink & toilet, and a dressing table with hairdryer (finally someone actually thought about putting the hairdryer by a mirror, unlike most hotel rooms I've come across & ladies, yes there is a plug within reach of the dressing table for your hair straighteners!!!) The owners Lee & Jane are super friendly, nothing is a problem if you need to ask anything, any time of day, they will happily show you around & fill you in with local knowledge. The way they have restored their holiday cottages is clearly done with love & passion. I would highly recommend this place (& trust me, I'm a fussy one :)

  • "From the moment we arrived, we knew our stay was going to be something special."

    We received the warmest greeting from Jane and instantly felt welcome. The barn itself is beautifully decorated, with a log burner, super-sized sofa, well equipped kitchen and luxurious bathroom. The view from the barn instantly puts you in a relaxed state of mind. Our journey was long so the welcome pack was very well received. There are plenty of places to visit if you feel the urge but I think the day we stayed in, lit the fire, curled up on the sofa and watched the rain fall was the best day we had. Jane and Lee are so friendly and naturally accommodating, we never felt awkward asking for anything and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be visiting again and will not hesitate to recommend to friends and family.

The property

Imaginatively conceived by its very creative owner using reclaimed materials, The Tin Barn is the perfect retreat for a honeymoon or a romantic weekend away including a beautiful woodfired hot tub.

The furnishings include a highly impressive, ornately carved four poster bed.

The interior is tastefully decorated in traditional Farrow and Ball colours and the spacious, open plan Living Room has a woodburner for cosy romantic evenings together.

The kitchen and living room are open plan with contemporary styling features.

Outside, the partly fenced garden area below the barn affords some privacy without compromising the restful views across the valley.

Simply walk through the owners' land and you are in Hangman’s wood, where you can walk for miles undisturbed.

The views over the wooded hills of Forest of Dean cannot be beaten.

The Tin Barn is a great place for couples to come and relax and become one with nature.

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.
