Our fascinating Grade II* Listed family home is in the lovely Severnside village of Newnham on Severn. Built in 1680 for a wine merchant, when Newnham was an important port, The Old House is full of character and period features, including the panelled dining room and a beautiful Queen Anne oak staircase. Guests of all ages (on 2 and 4 legs!) are guaranteed a warm welcome.
Newnham is ideally situated for exporing the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley as well as Gloucester, Cheltenham and further afield to the Cotswolds.
