Places to stay, things to do, good food and drink
The village of Kempley can be found in the North Forest of Dean district, and is surrounded by unspoilt countryside.
Located between Kempley and Dymock Village, lies the delightful Dymock Wood, which is varied in its array of wild flowers, especially in the spring when there is a beautiful display of daffodils and bluebells. Kempley Daffodil Weekend is held every spring and attracts many visitors.
Kempley is home to two 12th Century Churches, St. Mary’s and St. Edwards and are recognised by English Heritage as having some of the best preserved interiors of their age.
