Staying in the Forest: The ancient Forest of Dean – historically an industrial area which was founded in Roman times for iron-ore mining, sometimes being described as the “Sheffield of the South”. This however resulted in the large-scale decimation of the ancient forest, only to be replanted in the 1700s for planned future ship-building.
As former royal hunting grounds, the area was extensively mined for coal in the 18th & early 19th centuries with industry in decline in the 20th century. The Wye valley is formally designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
With great access to birds, wildlife, canoeing, caving, cycling, walking or simply stunning countryside.
