What you do on your holiday in the Wye Valley/Forest of Dean area is up to you. How much time you can spend doing it gets a bit of a boost from the calendar this year.
With the dates for Easter falling as they do, and the first of May also falling on a Monday, this year offers great opportunities for making the most of your time off work. By starting your holiday on Good Friday, then returning to work on May 2nd, you can take 18 days away, using up only nine days of your holiday allowance. That could mean two main holidays this year!
Spending some of the spring time in Garth Cottages comfortable, friendly bed and breakfast guest house can also work out to be great value too. Call us to check out the special deals for multi-night stays throughout April and May.
This is a great time of year to spend in this area too. Bordering the Forest of Dean, South Herefordshire and the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as we do, you don't have to go far in the spring to watch the beauty of nature unfolding her canvas of new life. Trees are budding, bees are buzzing and the spark of colours from the flowers in hedgerows and on banks igniting the blaze that will last all summer, almost before your eyes.
If you prefer an active break, the canoeing and water sports on the river Wye is in full swing by then, there is climbing, cycling, horse riding and miles of walking within a stone's throw of Garth Cottage.
