Description from manager

The Red Bus is one of the most unique places you could spend a weekend. Set in a beautifully secluded spot adjoining a paddock, with the friendly goats as neighbours! Much skill and imagination has been employed to renovate this 1982 Metro bus to create an attractive and practical living space on both floors. It really is a characterful and cosy space with charming decor and furnishings, all designed with comfort in mind. However, what makes this place truly special is its setting - there is wildlife in abundance with lots of wonderful walks right on your doorstep. Simply walk through the owners land and you are in Hangman's wood, where you can walk for miles undisturbed. The views over the wooded hills of the Forest of Dean are not to be beaten. You will soon find yourself sinking into the countryside lifestyle while taking in the fresh air and breathtaking views. NB maximum standing height on the bus is 68 inches (1m 73).

Amenities: Electric panel heaters. Oven, electric hob, microwave, fridge, coffee machine. TV, DVD. Fuel and power inc in rent. Bed linen and towels inc in rent. Decking area which has a picnic table and further seating. Two well behaved dogs welcome at a charge of £25 per dog per week. (downstairs only), sorry, no smoking. Shop 1 mile, pub 1.5 miles. Note: Wood fired Hot tub available for £50 for 5 nights & under or £70 for 7 nights and over. This is to be paid directly to the owner upon arrival. This property can accommodate 8 people a maximum of 4 adults and 4 children, best suited for a total of 6 guests. This large option is available March-October, property reference is 990350. Note: Due to the nature of the property it may not be suitable for those with limited mobility. Note: Not suitable for children under 4 years old. Note: Maximum standing height on the bus is 68in (1m 73)

Town: The thriving village of Newnham-on-Severn nestles on the banks of the River Severn. The village is steeped in history, and offers specialist shops to suit all interests, along with traditional pubs and cafes. This charming village, part of which is designated Conservation Area, has a tree-lined main street, many listed buildings, a striking central clock tower and is ideally located for watching the spectacular Severn Bore. The Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest, offers numerous trails that can be explored on foot, bicycle or horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high-wire rope course are on offer for the more adventurous, while fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are also available. Gloucester is just a short drive away, where you will find Roman foundations, Victorian docklands and a spectacular Norman cathedral (whose cloisters were used in the Harry Potter films). Littledean with its unique Jail Museum and Quadrophenia Collection, Westbury Court Garden, the only restored water garden in the country and the ancient caves and eerie caverns of Clearwell Caves (as seen in Dr Who and Merlin) make a great family day out. The ancient market towns of Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth have excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, plus many black and white timbered buildings, or visit the historic walled town of Chepstow with its celebrated race course and impressive Norman castle. A little further afield, discover the beautiful Malvern Hills, Black Mountains and Brecon Beacon National Park. A great location for a relaxing break or activity holiday at any time of year.
