AROUND THE FOREST OF DEAN AND WYE VALLEY

The village of Staunton lies within the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is an ideal location for exploring the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley. 

 

Staunton is a historic village and is known for being surrounded by stones such as the Buckstone, the Suckstone and the Near Hearkening Rock.  With many tracks and bridleways, you can explore on foot straight from the door.

 

Staunton heritage walks pass by the stones - leaflets with walking routes are available in the cottage.
 

The White Horse Inn is a free house offering local real ales, ciders, wines and meals using a range of locally-produced food.

 

The nearby market towns of Coleford and Monmouth have a range of shops, supermarkets, pubs, takeaways and restaurants.  Both towns are approximately 5 - 10 minutes drive from the Coach House.
