Newnham on Severn, Wye Valley, Forest of Dean & surrounding area
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. 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. Outside, the partly fenced garden area below the barn affords privacy without compromising the restful views across the valley.
All at ground level. Approach along a brick-paved pathway from parking area up three steps to a paved entrance area.
Open plan living room with lots of natural light emanating from the two sets of French windows which also afford great views; sitting area with corner sofa, woodburner, flat screen TV and dining table.
Hand-built, solid wood, fitted kitchen.
Double bedroom with feature, Tudor style, kingsize 4 poster bed; good views from both windows.
Three steps lead up into an en suite 'period' bathroom with roll-top bath, heated towel rail and make-up area with dressing table.
The gravelled garden area, a few steps below the accommodation, is the ideal spot to spend the evening relaxing with a barbecue after a full day exploring the area. Just beyond this, the open, grassed area blends seamlessly into the surrounding landscape with direct access across the owner's fields to woodland beyond.
The Tin Barn is situated at the end of a long no-through lane and shares the same location as Rose Cottage and The Red Bus. It enjoys an idyllic setting on the edge of the Forest of Dean, with a lovely outlook across and along a valley to woodland beyond.
This is the perfect base for exploring the many and varied attractions of this lesser known part of Gloucestershire between the rivers Severn and Wye. The Forest of Dean with its network of footpaths and cycle tracks is right on the doorstep, the Wye Valley with its dramatic, steep-sided limestone gorges a little further. Historic sites such as Tintern Abbey and Chepstow Castle as well as Gloucester Cathedral and the Cotswolds are an easy drive. The nearest town, Newnham-on- Severn, provides a range of local shops and is well worth visiting for its well-preserved Georgian buildings.
