Our Holiday Homes

Holiday homes for large groups in the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean

We have a wide range of large holiday homes for you to choose from, offering something for each guest in your group. Most of our holiday houses have a bit of history behind them having been converted from old pubs or farm houses and retain many of the original features.

Ideal for large group holidays in the UK

The Forest of Dean and Wye Valley is one of the most abundant and picturesque natural landscapes in the UK. No wonder it has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty!

Whether you want to stay for a few days or the whole week, you’ll find that our holiday homes are great value compared to many hotels, plus you get to stay somewhere full of charm and character!
