Visit Newent and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Newent, Gloucestershire. Wild daffodils grow thickly around this old market town in spring; they have even colonised the central strip of the Ross Spur motorway. Near the town is a falconry centre where this ancient hunting art has been revived. The birds can be seen being handled, in ground training and at work in the sky.
The 16th century timber-framed market hall is well preserved and there are several 18th century houses and a medieval spired church. The lead was removed from the church roof by the Royalists in 1644 during the Civil War, to make bullets to repel Roundhead attacks, and after a heavy fall of snow in 1674 the roof collapsed, destroying the nave. It was rebuilt after Charles II made a grant of 60 tons of wood from the Forest of Dean. Taynton House, 3 miles south, has three interesting barns, one of which dates from 1695.
