Wye Valley in December

I am seriously considering a xmas/new year break in the UK within 4 hours driving (we are suffolk and essex border). Wye valley is somewhere dh and I have never been and we have 2 d's aged 4 and 6 and a young dog and thought a few walks in the forest of Dean might blow away the cobwebs after Xmas.

Also the cottages I've looked at in the Wye Valley area look better value for money than Dorset/Kent and North Norfolk might be a bit bleak at that time of year.

Has anyone been or can recommend other places that would be suitable?

We went in November about 20 years ago and it was lovely. On 'nice' days we went on walks, and on the not so nice ones, we explored the towns and Hereford, Worcester which aren't far away.

tbh I think wherever you book it would be lovely. we enjoy being away at Christmas but perhaps be organised in case the weather is really appalling though over the past few years Dec has actually been OK for rain which seems to come later in the year.
I would check out some of the dog friendly websites and make sure wherever you go that there is good dog access.

Most places will be booking now for Christmas (if not earlier ) so you are right to be thinking ahead. there are highly likely to be minimum stays as well. There are quite a few dog friendly websites like dogpeople and dogfriendly so hopefully you will find something good.
