this should not be a tourist attraction, unless you have a boat there, or have a dog to walk... don't bother.

Not much there, but it's in a lovely area with great views across the estuary. There weren't many boats to see, but the yacht club had coffee and cakes for sale and the sun was shining!

It was slack water at low tide. Calm weather and a bit misty, but the view was wonderful and our guests were pleased to be able to pick out the two Severn crossings, Berkeley Castle, Berkeley Power Station, Oldbury Power Station, Sharpness Docks and the beginning of the Gloucester/Sharpness Canal. The little dock with its moored yachts is very picturesque.... More

An interesting historic location which explains the industrial heritage of this now very rural location. There is also a fantastic footpath along the cliffs above the River Severn with a spectacular view.

Very peaceful, great for an early morning walk although it might be better to get to it by car. You can walk for miles along the foot path in both directions

Lydney harbour is such a great location to park up ,watch the tide come in or out, see the different sailing crafts coming and going up and down the severn and on occasions visiting the harbour, there are great walks following the severn for the young and old, with viewpoints pinpointing various locations that are of interest with literature explaining...
