Local area

Staying with us in the Forest of Dean is the perfect opportunity to explore the local area on foot, by bike or by car. There are some fantastic things to see and do in the forest and around the area, and Whitemead guests are entitled to discounted rates at some of the top attractions below.

Only an hour away from Whitemead, in the beautiful village of Bourton-on-the-Water, is Boundless’ very own Cotswold Motoring Museum. For adults, it’s a nostalgic trip back to a more romantic age of motoring, but there’s something for the kids too – they’ll love Brum, the little yellow car from the hit BBC TV series.
