  • Newent Recreation Ground, left in trust to the Council for use by the parishioners, which is home to the highly successful Newent Rugby Football Club and other local sporting teams. The Council also maintains a well used children’s play area within the ground.
  • Convenient free car parking adjacent to the Holts Health Centre and the Public Library which contains a fascinating selection of local history resources
  • Highly prized allotments covering an area of some 2.5 acres offering a mixture of some 24 full plots and some 44 half plots
  • The historic half timbered late 16th century Market House and Heritage Centre and central location for the famous annual Onion Fayre
