The village of Staunton is situated high above the River Wye on the north west fringes of the Forest of Dean. This quiet village lies within the parish of Coleford; an area that owes its survival to the foresters who earned a living out of mining.

Today the area is a Mecca for tourists, the 35,000 acres of one of the few surviving royal forests in England is an area that positively teams with pastimes and wildlife. There are beautiful walks that take past ancient trees, streams and lakes and steam railways run by enthusiasts who still operate within the forest offering visitors a different view of the area. Nearby Coleford has a rich history which has carried it forward, today it’s a thriving town offering all the necessities of modern life.

Staunton is proud of its history and today sees the village offering the visitor a mix of distinctive houses; quaint mellow stoned cottages, towering spire of St James Church and some of the most stunning forests in Britain.
