" We are just outside the very pretty historic village of Winster, which boasts 2 pubs ( both serve food ) a village shop, a school, a church, Morris Dancers and the infamous Winster Guisers ! . Winster celebrates its village carnival known as the Winster Wakes, plus an annual Pancake Race, and Secret Garden Weekend. The latter is a fantastic event with jazz bands and live music throughout the village. For those who haven t seen Winster, the cottages lie in clusters into the hillside with a myriad of narrow alleyways passing through, this makes for sheltered ' secret ' gardens often completely hidden from sight."
Surrounded by open countryside, this area offers beautiful landscape and ideal walking, pubs and restaurants. For the energetic there is rock climbing, cycling, sailing &windsurfing , with riding also available nearby. There is also local fishing in the Rver Wye .
