Adsett holiday cottages offer easy access to the Cotswolds, the Forest of Dean and the city of Gloucester. This quiet hamlet is surrounded by glorious countryside, near the River Severn and the village of Westbury-on-Severn. Whether you want to spend your break exploring rolling hills and ancient woods, visiting magnificent stately homes and gardens or simply savouring a slower, rural pace, self-catering holidays in Adsett have something for everyone. This welcoming community consists of little more than a scattering of stone cottages, a post office, a historic pub and a small handful of delightful holiday cottages. A 15-minute drive westward will bring you the Forest of Dean, a 42-square-mile oak forest and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where scenic trails can be explored by foot, horse or bike. Abseiling and caving offer an exhilarating experience of the forest, and there are few more idyllic locations for a round of golf or an afternoon of fishing.
10 miles northeast of your Adsett holiday home, the city of Gloucester is home to independent shops, renowned restaurants, museums and galleries. Don’t miss the spectacular cathedral, Victorian docks or Roman ruins. Well within driving distance of the hamlet is the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which encompasses the Welsh border and is home to charming villages and market towns, including Monmouth, Symonds Yat and Whitchurch. Cross the Severn heading east from Adsett and you’ll find yourself in the Cotswolds, famous for honey-coloured stone, elegant mansions and tranquil hills, woods and valleys. Don’t leave Adsett without a trip to Westbury Court Garden, the country’s only Dutch-style water garden, with a sweeping canal flanked by a stunning yew and holly topiary. For a pint of local ale after a day of exploring, try the Red Lion. With its antique fireplace, beams, beer garden and good food, a visit to this lively pub is the perfect way to end your day.
