    However, the apartment was presented well and clean. It was a little tricky to find, however we asked a very helpful local and he pointed us in the right direction. The location is great for exploring the area and there are some lovely walks. We thought the additional extras, such as the tea, biscuits and toiletries were lovely. The instructions for all the appliances were under the sink and the folder with information about the apartment and places to visit were very helpful. Overall, we had a great stay and will most likely return. However, I have only given 4 stars as I feel the owner could pay a little more detail to some aspects. For instance, the toilet seat was loose and we needed to fix it, there was a broken glass in one of the lidded recycling bins and there was no information available on when to put Recyling out or where to dispose of rubbish. However, these had no impact on our stay and we had a great time. Thank you

The property

Resting in the delightful village of St Briavels in the Forest of Dean is Apartment 2 Castle View, a ground-floor flat part of a fabulous, large listed property.

With the Gloucestershire and Wye Valley countryside on your doorstep, Apartment 2 Castle View is perfect for a rural getaway with friends or family, sleeping up to six guests across two bedrooms and a luxury sofa bed.

Walk through the pretty private garden with a lawned area and a patio with seating, perfect for alfresco dining, before coming to the front door and stepping into the open-plan living space.

Beautifully decorated in a contemporary style, this relaxing setting is where you can unwind watching the TV amidst your loved ones, gather at the dining table for fun board games into the evening, or get creative in the excellent kitchen, equipped with all you need to whip up tasty dishes for all.

Head along the corridor to find the spacious and modern shower room with quality fittings to freshen up with after a busy day outdoors.

A lovely master bedroom features a king-size bed with matching furniture and a TV on the wall, so you can enjoy lazy mornings in bed.

The charming village of St Briavels is a wonderful setting for a holiday, with all you need on your doorstep including a pub and a village shop, as well as its fair share of history in the form of St Briavels Castle, a 12th century frontier now a working Youth Hostel, with the exterior of the castle and moat open to visitors throughout the day.

Browse the monthly farmers' market hosted in the village on the first Saturday of the month, with stalls offering locally produced and grown foods from bread and cakes to cider and real ale.

Venture into the Wye Valley AONB and visit Tintern Abbey, surrounded by the river, trees and hills, it's a beautiful sight to see the ruins of this Cistercian abbey dating from 1131 within such an idyllic setting.

Pull on your walking boots and set off on some adventures on foot with plenty of walking routes to choose from, the most famous being Offa's Dyke Path, loosely following the England-Wales border, this long-distance walking route will carry you through stunning landscapes.

Explore the Forest of Dean further, visiting the village of Clearwell where Clearwell Caves, an iron mining museum and ancient caves, offers a unique day out, or follow the Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail and try to spot the 16 discreet, nature-inspired sculptures within the luscious woodland.

Enjoy a staycation to Gloucestershire, exploring the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean from the lovely Apartment 2 Castle View.

About the location


Chepstow 8 miles; Monmouth 9.5 miles.

St Briavels is a small parish in the Royal Forest of Dean in West Gloucestershire, close to the England-Wales border. In the shadow of St Briavels Castle, this small village consists of a church and the George Inn, so a meal out is easily accessible for any visitors.

Tintern Abbey lies on the banks of the River Wye only a four mile drive away from St Briavels, which also has a pub next to the Abbey called the Anchor Inn, allowing for visitors to eat while looking out over the Wye. For those seeking outdoor activity, there are plenty of opportunities to walk around Hewelsfield Common. Exploring caves around ten minutes away from St Briavels in Clearwell, provides more entertainment that may be new to many visitors.
