Popular attractions include the Three Choirs Vineyard near Newent, Dean Heritage Centre and Puzzlewood in the Forest of Dean and Hereford Cathedral.

The Kilcot Inn has all the charm of a country pub but with modern and fresh décor and simple but comfortable furniture. The atmosphere is intimate and cosy thanks to low ceilings and small public rooms and separate areas. Children have lots of space to run around outside.


This is a well-loved local pub, so often gets busy, when service can slow down. Staff take an active role in the community and in 2021, started supporting the local Pied Piper children's charity. There's local artists' work on display and they still host the Newent Beekeepers Society and sell The Kilcot Honey.
