Leadon View Barn is positioned amongst the tranquil countryside of the Leadon Valley and conveniently located within easy reach of the Malvern Hills, Wye Valley, Forest of Dean, Cheltenham Spa and the cathedral cities of Hereford, Gloucester and Worcester. Ideally located, the barn is a good base from which to explore the area and its many attractions, along with providing a peaceful retreat from which to relax.
Comprehensively equipped, the barn is well presented and provides holiday accommodation of a high standard that is well positioned for accessing the motorway. You can leave London and reach Leadon View Barn in just over two hours normally and less than an hour from Birmingham or Cardiff. Gloucester railway station is twenty minutes away by car and there are coach services to nearby towns from which you can take a short taxi journey to the barn.
The market towns of Tewkesbury with its magnificent abbey, and Ledbury with its wonderful timber framed buildings are both only a short drive away. Three miles to the south of Newent lies May Hill which rises to 971 feet, providing magnificent views over Gloucestershire, Malvern Hills, The Cotswolds and the plain of Hereford, extending beyond to Bristol on a clear day.
In complete contrast to the Wye Valley and the Forest, the area provides a pleasant mixture of rolling farmland hills, market gardens, vineyards and black and white timbered buildings. The Leadon Vale is a quintessentially unspoilt English area centred around the picturesque town of Newent.
