Staying in the Forest: The ancient Forest of Dean – historically an industrial area which was founded in Roman times for iron-ore mining, sometimes being described as the “Sheffield of the South”. This however resulted in the large-scale decimation of the ancient forest, only to be replanted in the 1700s for planned future ship-building.
As former royal hunting grounds (still officially The Royal Forest of Dean), the area was extensively mined for coal in the 18th & early 19th centuries with industry in decline in the 20th century. The Forest of Dean is formally designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
With great access to birds, wildlife, canoeing, caving, cycling, walking or simply stunning countryside.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Just a quick message to thank you for a very pleasant stay in the Forest of Dean - accommodation was ideal for us with everything we needed provided. Your parents were helpful and welcoming, and the "Sculpture Trail" and "Puzzlewood" attractions are great for children and accessible. Sorry I did not let you know when we were arriving and also apologies for (small) incident with bedside cabinet drawer. I hope we can arrange to visit again before long.
Many thanks, Matthew and Family
