From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Three Castles and Wye Valley Walks entice walkers along their historic paths, The Biblins Bridge is only 1 mile, Goodrich Castle is close by.

With beautiful rural views towards King Arthur’s Cave and King Caracticus’ Fort, this Georgian farmhouse makes an ideal holiday base for walkers. It is only one mile from The Biblins Bridge – with the meandering River Wye below – from where superb views of Seven Sisters Rock are to be admired.
The area offers some of the finest walking and cycling terrain in the country. Within 5 miles the Offa’s Dyke, Three Castles Walk and Wye Valley Walk entice walkers along their historic paths, taking in stunning scenery and ‘black-and-white’ villages en route. Symonds Yat lies close by, a must for outdoor lovers; kayaks and canoes can be hired for a leisurely day upon the river, while those seeking more excitement can try their hand at white water rafting. Other activities to enjoy locally include pot holing, mountain biking, horse riding, ballooning and abseiling, while for those happier to enjoy more tranquil pursuits, this is a great area for bird-watching, fishing and golf.
A 20 minute walk across Biblins Bridge leads into the Forest of Dean, a vast wooded expanse spanning some 27,000 acres; here the quiet observer may be lucky enough to spot one of the resident fallow deer – a reminder of the forest’s origins as a royal hunting ground for Norman kings. Indeed, this is an area steeped in history, where castles and fortifications dot the landscape, mapping out a territory fought over down the ages; nearby Goodrich Castle serves as a prime example. With the Welsh borders and Brecon Beacons to explore in one direction, and the honey-toned Cotswolds in the other, this is a centrally located base for touring this unspoilt region. And after all that fresh air, there are plenty of homely pubs in which to enjoy a hearty meal and sample some of the local ciders in good company. Shop 1 mile.

    It was a fabulous place for all our party, no matter what age. The house was stuffed full of quirky objects but so homely and comfortable our family of 12 want us to book it again next year!

    We loved the farmhouse, it's full of character and it was the perfect place for our family get-together. Everyone was very warm and comfortable during a weekend of shocking weather. My children (age 8 & 6) loved seeing the old cars around the farmhouse and playing in the fields. My only slight complaint is that the fuel allowance should be included in the initial price (I am aware that it was mentioned in the description but some people in our party did not know it was due), this would clarify the cost at the start. Apart from that, we would recommend Doward Farm to anyone.

    Great location, comfortable accommodation. Enough hot water for everyone! Unusual bathrooms in some rooms, but a lot of character.

    Doward Farm is a charming and authentic weekend getaway spot. The farm is functional, cosy and the roaring fire was a dream! And the owner, Mark was quite the character. He and his property gave a group of tired journalists and our other halves just what we needed - some fresh air away from the world. The perfect retreat.

    Fantastic value for money and full of character. And there's wifi!! So important, please include on the description. A little rough round the edges but this certainly sits in the area of farmhouse charm and definitely not uncomfortable. The house is warm and cosy. Although there are some wonderful old cars on the site there's also a lot of old rust buckets and this certainly taints the scenery somewhat. However we wanted a long weekend bolt hole and didn't leave the house, so perfect for us.

    The cottage is located in a beautiful part of the country with plenty on the doorstep. Unfortunately the cottage is surrounded by what can be best described as a car graveyard, interesting for some a H&S risk / eyesore for others. The property is in desperate need of refurbishment, (dishwasher,cooker, crockery etc have all seen better days) and a good clear out. The best that can be said is that it has character. While it may sleep the 16 as advertised you wont be able to all eat at the same table or sit in the lounge area together to gather round the minature TV (One of our party had a laptop as big as the TV). One good thing - the log burner, though there was £10 fuel surcharge. One point to note if you want access before 5:00pm the owner charges an extra £10 per hour. Having said all of that we did have a great weekend.

    Brilliant house for playing hide and seek. Kitchen is well equipped and there's thoughtfully two each of kettles and fridge freezers. Beds are comfortable and plenty of storage. The house was very clean but as it's an old house with older furnishings some of our family with asthma were often wheezing and sneezing. Bring your ventolins if you need one!

    Great place for a large family party of all ages. Quirky accommodation and fittings - not everything worked! - but bags of crockery, glasses and cutlery. Bags of room in the house and good sized bedrooms. Location excellent for walks and reasonable walking distance to Symmonds Yat etc. Decent pubs and restaurants within a few minutes drive. Loved all the old cars, but hope they will not just be left there to rot and rust.

    Perfect for our group - plenty of space to get lost in the house and the setting is just beautiful. A little rough around the edges, which meant that I could completely relax without the anxiety of breaking a family heirloom. Cannot thank Marc enough for being the perfect host. Looking forward to next time, Angela

    The house is in a great location, close to the A40 for getting there and getting around but you would have no idea you are less than a mile as the crow flies from the main road, as the house is in a very quiet valley with easy access to beautiful walks, Symonds Yat and the River Wye. The owner is very friendly and obliging. The house is mildly eccentric ('en suite' bathrooms which are separated from the beds only by half-height partitions etc) and some of the kitchen equipment was more random than in other holiday cottages I've stayed in. We were a party ranging in age from 87 to 15 and there were all sorts of activities to suit everyone within the immediate area so it's a great place to stay.
