This renovated Jacobian hall is perfect for an insight into Englands past. Set near the head of the Severn estuary in a quaint little village called Little Dean, the manor house takes in sweeping views of the glorious Gloucestershire countryside. You would think that with such beauty so close at hand that they would have opened it to the public as a hotel, but alas neither the funds nor the inclination is available, as Little Dean Hall has a murky history steeped in murder and intrigue. Thus it makes a perfect place to visit around Halloween as the house truly does have eeriness and presence. I personally delight in hearing the gruesome history being told over and over again. Also located in the grounds are other earth attractions such as a Water Wicca temple and acres of natural English oak woods. The entrance fee is nominal (around £3 per adult) and allows you to wander the land and buildings to your hearts content, and for as long as you wish, although I believe they close at 5pm in the evening.
