Frampton on Severn, just south of Gloucester and north of Bristol, is an ideal stopover, but also a great base for longer stays. The Cotswolds, Wye Valley (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and cities of Gloucester, Cheltenham, Bristol and Bath are within easy reach and the village itself also has much to offer. Outdoor enthusiasts have Slimbridge Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (a short cycle ride along the canal) and Chepstow and Cheltenham are handy for racing enthusiasts.
