This is a holiday that gives you the best of both worlds. Established in south Herefordshire, serene Llangarron is a small rural village that’s home to various Grade II listed buildings. Make the most of the peace and quiet before heading over to the characterful market town of Ross-on-Wye only a few miles away, sitting next to the River Wye and on the northern edge of the Forest of Dean. This area has exceptional history, with castles overlooking the River Wye as it wends its way through beautiful, tranquil countryside.
Tre-Vern exudes country luxury. A brand-new conversion on the same Upperfields Farm site as in previous years and surrounded by gorgeous pastoral scenes, this 350-year-old barn is as beautiful inside as it is out, with chic shared areas that are warm and light. You can enjoy comforts such as the spacious living space with inglenook fireplace, underfloor heating, and even a swimming pool.
Each bedroom is ‘zip and link’, meaning the beds can be made up as either two Twins or one King at your request. There is one ground-floor bedroom with an ensuite wet room, while the three first-floor bedrooms with their ensuite shower rooms need to be accessed via a staircase.
This area offers a wealth of things to do whatever the weather. Glide down the River Wye on a boat trip or take a ride on a steam train. Animal lovers can call in at the llama farm to get up close and personal with these gentle, curious creatures, and for the history buffs among you there are several castles to visit. Head to Symonds Yat for a proper pub lunch, and then take some time to relax by the private pool back at your accommodation.
Every holiday with Dementia Adventure is unique! Your itinerary may vary depending on the date, and will be released to you in good time before your departure — usually about two to three weeks prior.
