Things To Do in St Briavels, Lydney
The Forest of Dean is a walker’s paradise with fantastic walks available for all ages and abilities. Offa’s Dyke Path is the most famous of the walks in the forest, covering a total of 177 miles and covers woodland, ancient pathways and river valleys with castles, abbeys and hamlets en route.
Dogs are welcome in the forest and they will love the freedom to explore the area. Also a favourite with cyclists, The Forest of Dean has a number of dedicated cycle paths from family trails to more challenging rides. Take your own bike or hire one nearby for increased flexibility.
The Welsh capital of Cardiff is less than an hour from the house by car and offers retail therapy for any shopaholic’s budget, outstanding sporting events and cultural attractions such as Cardiff Castle, the National Museum Cardiff and five miles off the Cardiff coast, Flat Holm Island, a retreat for monks, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, smugglers and silver miners since the Dark Ages.
Arrive and depart by boat to see the nature reserve on the island and its famous lighthouse landmark. Take a guided tour of the island or choose to explore by yourself. Head to Wales’ most southerly pub on the island, The Gull and Leek, for a refreshing pint of Welsh ale. Housed in a former cholera hospital, the pub is worth the journey and a pint tastes even better in the fresh air.
The ancient market town of Monmouth is a short drive from the house and is famous for its 13th century gatehouse bridge. Monmouth has royal links and is famous nowadays for its association with Queen and Simple Minds. Checkout the town’s Georgian architecture or enjoy a theatre show at the town’s two theatres.
Rodmore Lodge offers a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life for couples holidaying with their pooch. Stunning views from the terrace, a comfortable living area and bedroom are all that you need to relax with a good book on the sofa or outside on a sunny day.
Pop into a local supermarket en route so that you don’t even need to leave the cottage if all that you want is fresh air, good views and a holiday with no interruptions.
Head out for the day to Monmouth, Gloucester or Cardiff for sports, theatre and history or don your walking boots and explore the Forest of Dean. Stroll around the ruins of Tintern Abbey, the first Cistercian abbey in Wales and enjoy good food in the delightful village of the same name or place a bet on a winner at race day at Chepstow Races.
