We are not far from Gloucester which has the brilliant Gloucester quays shopping and night life and Hereford - both just 1/2 hour bus/car ride away from the village, but also close to boutique towns like Chepstow and Tewkesbury. A short 5 minute drive away is the lovely historic market town of Ross on Wye which has a town and country trail and by the riverside Symonds yat where you can canoe down the river Wye or go fishing. Local taxis can be booked easily too but with notice usually! We are also close to the Wales border and only an hour from the beach at Barry Island and the quieter Jackson’s Bay which allows dogs all year round plus the bustling city of Cardiff.
