Description |


Coaley Peak lies on a plateau which overlooks the Severn Valley. The views open up around it taking in the river Severn and the Forest of Dean which climbs up beyond it.


A large grassy area allows for picnics and flying kites when the wind cuts loose. But if you're lucky enough to emerge up here at sunset, a glorious array of golden sunlight fills the horizon.


Sit, stand, and take in the view. It's good for the soul.
