Birchamp House is a Grade II listed building set within the conservation area of Newland. The house is set in nearly six acres in an elevated position and is approximately 200 years old.

A grand Georgian facade was added around 1815. Much restoration work has been undertaken by the owners, who purchased the house in 1986.

Guests are welcome to sit under the South facing colonial style verandah, and to use the large adjacent shrub surrounded lawn.

There is ample parking within the grounds and safe storage for bicycles.

The Accommodation

This comprises of:

The Yellow Room
A large double bedded room, (photo right), generously furnished, with basin with hot and cold water, armchairs and coffee table. This room has a private west facing shower room immediately adjacent, and a west facing sitting area which is flooded by sunlight in the afternoons.

The South Room
This large twin bedded room with its own sitting area, has views over the magnificent village church and the surrounding countryside. The room benefits from an en-suite shower room.

Both rooms have television, radio, hairdryer and tea and coffee making facilities.

The size of rooms make them suitable for a travel cot or traditional wooden cot, both of which can be supplied on request.

Breakfast is served in the dining room. Our emphasis is on preparing and serving wholesome organic/free range food wherever possible, obtained from local producers. Vegetarians are welcome. Cream teas can be taken by arrangement in the garden in summer months.


Newland is a picturesque village in the Forest of Dean adjacent to the Wye Valley of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It contains a number of substantial houses, of which Birchamp House is one. The village is built around the magnificent parish church dating from around 1216, which is known as the "Cathedral of the Forest".

The Ostrich public house, which is within a couple of minutes' walking distance, must be one of the most atmospheric pubs in the County, and dates from 1694. The Village is two miles from the River Wye, and is well located for walking, cycling and sightseeing.


Bed & Full English Breakfast £25.00 per person per night

Age 3 and under sleeping in a cot or folding bed: Free of Charge
For children of 4 years and over, please enquire.
