Why we love Woofield Accommodation for a weekend
“When you want beautiful over bleak, gorgeous over great, Woofield Accommodation wins. Housed within an historic Georgian house in the tiny village of Newland, the suite of three apartments have been stunningly brought back to life by their talented interior designer owners. Elegant on the inside, forest-quiet on the outside, this impeccable country retreat is ready to woo. Go grab your wellies.”
You can’t help but be impressed by Woofield’s flashy coral-pink exterior. Against the verdant greens of the Forest of Dean, the property is as lovely as a solitaire ruby in its cradle. Woofield’s owners, Neil and Raymond, saw the property’s potential when they first visited Newland from London a few years ago.
Both successful interior designers, Raymond and Neil lavished creativity, flair and love on Woofield Accommodation over countless weeks, renovating the property from the inside out. Fast forward to today and they’ve transformed the former residential home for people with learning disabilities into a gorgeous nest for themselves and a three-act suite of glamorous dog-friendly apartments for us.
Palm House, Cathedral View and Steeple View apartments are set at the back of the house and are as characterful as their talented owners. Each accommodation has its own parking space, each one accepts well-behaved small dogs and all are a mere 5 minute stroll away from Newland village’s highlights: the renowned ‘Cathedral of the Forest’ All Saints Church and ‘The Ostrich’ pub.
They all also boast period features and styling, a mix of contemporary and antique furniture and furnishings, king size beds with orthopaedic inner-sprung mattresses – and an effortless serenity and style that you really hope will rub off before you leave. Fingers crossed.
Palm House | 2 bedrooms, sleeping 4/5
Marble floors with black and white diamonds, eye-popping wallpaper of tropical shrubbery, an antique French daybed, and a slipper bath are just some of the delights waiting in the 2 bedroom Palm House apartment. Naturally, there’s a fully equipped eat-in kitchen with quality appliances too, as well as a terrace to eat on with delicious valley views.
Cathedral View | 1 bedroom, sleeping 2
Cathedral View is a stunning open-plan apartment for two. It’s blessed with a vaulted ceiling, a stunning stained glass partition between the bed and kitchen-living area, a large gothic window and a log burner. The exceptional views over the fields and Newland’s 13th-century church are worthy of the apartment’s title and best enjoyed, in our opinion, with the waiting bottle of prosecco. Amen.
Steeple View | 1 bedroom, sleeping 2
Steeple View sits at the top of Woofield Accommodation so climb the spiral staircase to reach it. The stairs are worth the effort because this lovely studio apartment is as refreshing as a burst of meadow sunshine. Its furnished with pine country antiques, boasts a generous eat-in kitchen with integrated appliances and has a classic tiled shower room with a Victorian stained glass roof light.
Woofield sits on the edge of the village of Newland on the River Wye in a prime location. Some call Newland the ‘Chelsea of the forest’ although it’s more down-to-earth than haughty. From this spot the treasures of the beautiful Wye Valley are within easy reach during your stay.
If you’re the adventurous type, you can book to go paddle boarding or canoeing on the Wye River. If you love a little glamour, the brilliant Michelin starred Whitebrook Inn is only a 20 minute drive away and you can reach fashionable Cheltenham in just over 30 mins.
Of course, you don’t have to venture far from Woofield Accommodation if you don’t want to. Stroll to the Ostrich pub up the road and sit pretty with a bottle of wine and a hearty lunch. Then, when you can’t eat anymore, spend the rest of the day meandering the valleys, woods, before exploring some local castles and churches with your pet.
