Situated on the eastern fringes of the beautiful Forest of Dean, Viney Hill Country House was originally a working farm and has now been renovated to a very high standard. With 8 bedrooms, a games room and a private heated pool, the house is perfect for reunions, family gatherings and activity holidays.
This delightful period house was built in 1741 and sits in an acre of lawns and gardens overlooking the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside and the magnificent Royal Forest of Dean. The interiors have been restored and extended to provide every conceivable comfort, and on your doorstep there are attractions and activities galore, from walking trails to wildlife parks. Whether you’re relaxing in the garden, playing in the pool, getting cosy indoors or getting adventurous outdoors, Viney Hill is a wonderful base from which to explore this peaceful and picturesque spot.
This is an idyllic location for walking, cycling and nature enthusiasts, and adrenaline junkies can go quad biking at Chepstow Activity Centre, high wiring at Go Ape or canoeing in the stunning Symonds Yat Gorge. There are lots of family-friendly attractions – Cheddar Gorge, Big Pit mining museum, Clearwell Caves and Perrygrove Railway, to name but a few. And wildlife lovers will adore Slimbridge Wetland Centre, West Midland Safari Park and The National Bird of Prey Centre at Newent. Whatever the season or the weather there’s something to do within a short drive.
