Looking down onto the Wye Valley at the heart of the Forest of Dean, the quaint, rural village of St Briavels is the ideal choice for the ultimate outdoor family holiday or group self-catering retreat. Offering a myriad of dog-friendly historic walking trails, including Offa’s Dyke, St Briavels is a fantastic location for an adventurous getaway to some beautiful holiday accommodation close to the Welsh border. The village is centred around the Royal St Briavels Castle, the judicial centre of the Forest of Dean, but also boasts a vibrant communal green and monthly farmers' market offering some of the best local produce this area has to offer, perfect for savouring the rich taste of this area back at your self-catering St Briavels cottage.
Nestled on the English side of the English/Welsh border, with a holiday to St Briavels you can explore the ancient castles poised around Monmouthshire, the beautiful scenery and foodie delights of Abergavenny (both within 25 miles) or the myriad of walking trails around the picturesque scenery of the Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Thrill seekers can enjoy caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course in this unspoilt area before hunkering down for the evening at your St Briavels holiday cottage. The historic town of Chepstow with its impressive Norman Castle and celebrated racecourse and the Georgian mansions of Monmouth can all be reached within 8.5 miles.
