During the industrial revolution the area was mined for coal and the old mines and tramways can be found across the area today. It’s home to a wide variety of wild life including wild boar, which occasionally stray on to our properties! Many of our homes are situated in the beautiful
villages in and around the Forest.

The Forest of Dean is one of the many stunning places in the County and there are plenty of areas to explore on a family day out, as well as activities such as caving, kayaking and off-roading for the more adventurous!
