The Experience

An extremely elegant country-chic apartment brimming with interesting furniture and finds, a roaring wood-burner to warm your toes after a day walking or kayaking, and a king size bed to sink into. You’re in a small village with a really good pub, The Ostrich, and a Michelin star restaurant, The Whitebrook, a little further away if you fancy a treat.

The Wye Valley is at your feet for superb walking, cycling and kayaking, Offa’s Dyke path is close and you’re on the fringe of The Forest of Dean for more outdoorsy adventures. Return to sit out on your private area on the terrace and soak up the valley views over medieval Newland Church, known locally as The Cathedral of The Forest.

Pick up delicious locally sourced supplies at The Village Shop in Brockweir (15 mins) and cook a feast in your neat kitchen, play a board game, throw another log on the fire, read a book. Decide to do it all again tomorrow.

Prefect village location on the borders of the Wye valley and picturesque countryside. Cathedral View offers self catering facilities, a peaceful comfortable sleep. The interior design and deco-finishing is of the highest standard. A pretty decent local unique 16th century pub to visit is a bonus.

John, Nottingham

We really enjoyed our stay here and thought it was good value for money. The weather was not brilliant, especially on the Wednesday morning, which made us very appreciative of the comfort and ambiance of the property. The location is excellent for visiting Chepstow and Tintern, where The Wild Hare must be mentioned for its superb menu. Our dog was given a warm welcome and also at the local inn, The Ostrich. Much thought and detail has gone into the presentation of this holiday home and it shows in the furnishings and fittings. This property is very clean and well maintained.

Keneth, Peterborough

Beautiful little home from home in a lovely location. Very well equipped and nice touches that made us feel very welcome. We have already recommended Woofield to our friends!

Lisa, Milton Keynes

Gorgeous little apartment, very clean and a lovely comfy bed. Great host with prompt communication. Peaceful little village with gorgeous local pub that provided really tasty food. Totally what we needed. :-)

Sarah, Penarth

Absolutely wonderful holiday. Everything was perfect, beautifully presented and some really caring touches. Even the house rules words were carefully chosen . We had a very peaceful and relaxing break in a very beautiful part of the country returning each evening to a delightful ‘home’. Would not hesitate to recommend, nor hesitate to return. Thank you!

Dean, Kempston

A great view of the "Cathedral"! I don't normally write 5* reviews but everything was right for us at Woofield. We were 2 adults + small dog. Everything we may needed was provided, the welcome pack was fab and even dog had a special luxury bed. My other half especially appreciated the hair dryer diffuser an example of attention to detail that is everywhere. The accommodation was excellent. Big comfy bed, good sized shower room, proper kitchen, proper lounge with proper woodburner stove. Very cozy. The pictures in the ads are correct. Its a visual treat. We plan to rebook

Michael, Sheffield

Superb accommodation in an exceptionally pretty landscape. I cannot recommend Woofield highly enough.

Mike, England

This Grade-II Georgian property nestled within sheltered woodlands has been brought back to its former glory by its interior designer owners and boy, does it show! This meticulously designed apartment has a hotel feel and oozes quality. It's ideal for those who want to enjoy the carefully considered space as well as explore all the Wye Valley AONB has to offer - make sure to flick through the lovely leather bound handbook for recommendations and local points of interest when you arrive.

Nicole, Sawday's Inspector

Cathedral view was the perfect home away from home for my dog Lola, I whilst our home was being renovated. Neil & Raymond ensured every creature comfort was taken care of, from the comfy bed with luxurious bed linen for a perfect night’s sleep to the large fluffy towels and delicious uplifting shower gel in the shower to make a perfect start to the day. The kitchen was well equipped with dishwasher and proper coffee machine. The log burner ensured cosy evenings and smart TV was easy to use. The peaceful location and great surrounding views was the icing on the cake for this magical property!

Julie, Newland

Take me back! We enjoyed a wonderful long weekend in the Cathedral View apartment in October 2022 on the occasion of a family wedding, our extended family stayed in the other apartment and we couldn't have asked for more! The lodging is superbly and tastefully decorated and fully equipped, the location is picturesque, beautiful views down the valley and outside seating area as well as private parking at the front door to the apartment. The village of Newland is out of a storybook and we were greeted very warmly by everyone we met. Overall a comfortable and thoroughly enjoyable stay!

The neighbourhood

Coleford and Clearwell (both 5 minutes) are pretty villages for a visit and a cup of coffee. Clearwell has caves, formed by underground streams, to explore. Monmouth (15 minutes) has a Waitrose, some interesting independent shops and plenty of cafés. Hire canoes or kayaks, cycle, pull on boots and walk parts of the ancient Offa's Dyke route that wends its way close to the English/Welsh border.

Local points of interest from Raymond & Neil

  • The Ostrich Inn, only a 5-minute walk is a charming and ancient pub with a roaring fire and a warm welcome to all including dogs, families, cyclists, walkers. Boasting local ales, ciders and a gourmet menu it has a garden and charming views of the church.
  • All Saints Church, Newland, traditionally and affectionately known as the Cathedral of the Forest, dates back to the early 1200s. A beautiful building and a peaceful spot to explore, full of interesting tombs and artefacts. Services listed on its website.
  • The Village Shop Brockweir & Hewelsfield, has a wide variety of every day essentials, fresh and frozen foods and are licensed to sell alcohol and have a range of gifts available. The Cafe has indoor and outdoor seating with lovely views down the valley.
  • The Forest Deli Coleford a brilliant delicatessen with lots of local and foreign cheese, charcuterie, gourmet foods, snacks and nibbles, local wines, beers, ciders, spirits. Order online and have it delivered for your stay.
  • Well worth a visit the ruins of Raglan Castle the grandest ever built by a Welshman. A spectacular ruin with a moated Great Tower of 1435 that still dominates this mighty fortress-palace and it once had one of the finest Renaissance gardens in Briton.
  • Woofield is on the walking map with 4 or more loop walks 4-5km, longer/shorter if you want, a brief walk on a quiet lane and you are into the hills, forests and valleys with opportunities to end up at pubs including The Boat Inn Redbrook "over in Wales".


Raymond & Neil

Raymond and Neil are both interior designers – Neil in particular has specialised in international small luxury hotels, apartments and holiday spaces for 25 years, and his eclectic and textured style shines through in their own apartments. Wanting to leave London, it took them a long time to find the right place, and it needed a lot of love. They’re now the fourth owners of this Grade-II 1690 property and only used local tradespeople (the furthest came from Monmouth) to bring the house back to its former glory. They live on-site but you'll be given a key and left to be self-sufficient.
