Sutton Baynham's 17th century farmhouse provides the backdrop for the luxurious self catering holiday cottages painstakingly converted from original stone barns.

In the heart of The Royal Forest of Dean, the 30 acre farm is on the fringe of Abbott's wood, adjacent to the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural beauty, between Gloucester, Ross on Wye and Chepstow.

Hosts Lynda and Geoff welcome you to their very own retreatApproached by a quiet country lane, the farmhouse, courtyard and 3 holiday cottages are set in extensive grounds. The converted barns are light and airy and the site offers spectacular views over the forest and countryside.

The sympathetically converted barns combine exposed oak beams and local stone. The carefully selected kitchens and bathrooms encompass both style and function. The interiors have been designed for your comfort and relaxation.

Every effort has been made to convert these properties with not only relaxation and luxury in mind but also with an awareness of their environmental impact on the years that follow. Sutton Baynham are pleased to announce that their heating is provided by both low-energy input ground-source heat-pumps and Jotul wood-burning fires.  Rain-water harvesting systems provide 50% of the water requirements.

Guests are welcome to explore the grounds, which include woodlands, pasture and streams all with abundant wildlife. Take a picnic in the top fields overlooking the Severn Vale, take a cycle ride that starts at the garden gate.

Sutton Baynham is perfectly situated for exploring the Cotswolds, the Malvern hills and the Brecon Beacons. It is an excellent base as a touring centre for the Welsh Marches, Cheltenham, Bath, Bristol and Gloucester and within easy reach of numerous National Trust properties, gardens and RSPB reserves.

Guests all receive details of the best local restaurants. Lynda and Geoff are also able to accept deliveries from on your behalf. 

Delicatessen and other local specialist food stores are nearby including Harrods supplier “Severn & Wye Smokery”.

Comprehensive information is available on local attractions, take-aways, places of interest and where to buy the best in local and organic food.
