WALKING & CYCLING: Sandwiched between the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean, and in such close proximity to the Welsh border and Brecon Beacons, you really are inundated with choice staying here when it comes to getting out and about, either on foot or on two wheels. There’s plenty for thrill seekers too, with rock climbing, canoeing, mountain biking and a Go Ape venue to monkey about at!
CASTLES & CULTURE: Goodrich and Raglan Castle are both just a short drive from the lodge, as well as the spectacular Tintern Abbey, a striking example of monastic ruins. For a family adventure, Puzzlewood offers a magical woodland with plenty of hidden, enchanted pathways to explore, whilst Perrygrove Railway is a unique experience giving you the chance to rest your feet without missing any of the breath-taking scenery on offer.
TOUR THE TOWNS: There are a plethora of picturesque little villages in the vicinity of the property, each with their own distinct character and history. Clearwell itself may be small, but its community spirit blossoms for all to see. The lively town of Gloucester is set on the banks of the River Severn to the east of the lodge boasting an abundance of amenities and spectacular cultural attractions such as Gloucester Cathedral, or head west and hop across the border to Wales and visit Monmouth, a Welsh town with many outstanding features and festivals to discover.
FINE FAYRE: The village itself has two delicious eateries, one a fine dining restaurant and the other a more traditional pub. The Tudor Farmhouse Restaurant has been described by Tatler magazine as a ‘culinary oasis’, and with their ’20 Mile Menus’ you can expect perfectly executed dishes using the most local, seasonal and delectable ingredients. Alternatively, take a pootle along to the Butchers Arms, where grills, pub classics, Sunday lunch and set menus all feature on their varied menu, where you’ll certainly find something to please everyone’s taste buds!
