On the edge of the Forest of Dean and a few miles from the historic town of Gloucester lies the sweet and small market town of Newent. A perfect way to explore this breath-taking place is by renting a holiday let, letting you and your loved ones truly connect with local life and the surroundings. It is easy to get around on foot, with the quirky Shambles Shopping place and the beautiful Newent Lake within mere minutes of one another. Visit Newent Lake and Park and let the kids run around the playground, while taking in the green landscape and thriving wildlife around you. Picnic tables are available here, but if you prefer, the town centre offers plenty of pubs, cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes – however, if none of that appeals, there is also The Three Choirs, which is one of the country’s largest vineyards!

Newent’s history stretches all the way back to the Roma times, and as you walk through Newent today, you will see timbered homes and Victorian style buildings. Hop in the car and take a short drive with the kids to the Eastnor Centre, where the young ones can learn about the past while still having hours of fun in Deer Park and the nearby adventure playground. To learn more about local wildlife, the National Birds of Prey Centre rests near the village of Clifford’s Mesne. Let volunteers amaze you with flying demonstrations, and later enjoy your lunch in the charming cafe and gardens. Clifford Mesne itself is very unspoilt and green – much like Newent. Come in the spring time and you will see the wild daffodils that Newent is famous for, best seen with a guided tour. A splendid destination choice for families or couples, Newent offers hours of fun for the kids and plenty of rest and recuperation around awe-inspiring views for the adults.
