Holly Lodge provides an ideal base from where to visit a number of different nearby towns and locations, all with their own individual attractions.
The nearest small town, about 2 miles away, is Upton upon Severn. Upton is not only a lovely little riverside town in its own right, but hosts a number of festivals each year which attract people from far and wide. These typically include annual Folk, Jazz and Blues music festivals.
Upton is a bustling river town with plenty of places to eat and drink, and a local tourist information office.
The Tourist Information Centre in Upton has literally dozens of leaflets detailing places to visit within reach of the town. Location and opening times (please check their website for any recent changes):
