The property

Newent 1.8 miles.

Medlands is a contemporary-styled barn conversion, in the quiet and rural location of The Scarr, with views across the vineyard in the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside.

Perfect for a romantic getaway or a break with friends or family, exploring the Forest of Dean, Cotswolds, Mid-Wales and the Wye Valley.

On arrival, plenty of off-road parking welcomes you, before stepping inside to a well-equipped open-plan living space.

Complete with everything you need for cooking, dining and relaxing, this space boasts a kitchen where you can look forward to cooking up your home-cooked dinners for the family and a dining area to enjoy your meals while the conversation flows.

From here, unwind in the sitting area, home to plush sofas and a Smart TV, perfect for settling in with a glass of wine.

Alternatively, spend your spare time outside in the garden with a patio and furniture positioned ideally for gazing upon the vineyard and surrounding countryside while your four-legged friend stretches their legs.

As eyes start to tire, freshen up in the bathroom, fitted with a bath with a shower over, giving you the option for a long soak after a day of walking, or a quick freshen up under the shower.

Slope off to sleep in one of two bedrooms, a king-size or a twin, each with a lovely neutral décor inviting you to rest.

Finishing off the interior is a handy utility cupboard with a washing machine to help you keep your clothes and towels fresh throughout your stay.

When you’re not enjoying this delightful abode, venture out and discover the local walking trails with your pooch; you’ll find a selection of maps, kindly provided by the owners to give you some inspiration for your adventures.

Once appetites have been worked up, treat your loved ones to a meal at The Gallery Carvery and Restaurant, just a short drive or leisurely walk from the property, or head into the town of Newent, home to a selection of pubs, restaurants and takeaways to choose from when you don't feel like cooking.

Newent is also home to Newent Lake, making for a delightful walk near some water for a calming afternoon, as well as Broadford Meadow Arboretum (Newent Arboretum), where you can wander the charming gardens.

You will be in a prime position from which to explore the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where characterful architecture and picture-postcard natural surroundings make a truly special collection of towns and villages to discover.

Heading north, you can reach the Malvern Hills AONB, and moving west, the Wye Valley AONB, ensuring you'll be spoilt for choice with walking and cycling opportunities.

If you're craving a little more hustle and bustle, make your way to the city of Gloucester and visit Gloucester Docks, Gloucester Cathedral, and a fantastic choice of eateries and shops to meander.

Savour a rural retreat at Medlands.
