Around Tan House

Things to do          Newland 


We have welcomed visitors to the Wye Valley AONB for 34 years, many come to explore the stunning landscapes that lie along the Lower Wye Valley and to enjoy the vistas from the high wooded plateau of the Forest of Dean, or to pursue the activities offered in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Rowing, cycling, walking, climbing, the zip wires of Go Ape are nearby, as are the superb bluebell woods in the spring, spectacular protected   orchid meadows and the autumnal colours of the Wye Valley are a particular joy.




The beautiful hills of the Forest of Dean rise between the Lower Wye Valley and the river Severn running out to its great estuary. At Tan House you are in Gloucestershire, but the Welsh border is but a mile, and herefordshire a short ten minute drive.
