Holiday Cottages In Forest Of Dean

Holiday Cottages in the Forest Of Dean


Ancient woodland, fascinating historic landmarks, and a scattering of picturesque towns and villages make the Forest of Dean an unforgettable place to visit. Located in the heart of Gloucestershire, much of the Forest of Dean remains unspoilt and remarkably free of the usual tourist crowds. So if you really want to get a sense of what England was like, say, a few hundred years ago when much of England really was just fields and woodland, consider a stay in one of the excellent Forest of Dean holiday cottages on offer.


Choose Holiday cottages in the Forest of Dean for the very best self-catered accommodation. This rural and pristine woodland isn’t somewhere you’re going to find chain hotels, and so Forest of Dean holiday cottages are one of the best ways to enjoy this historic part of the country. There are lots of great reasons to make your Forest of Dean adventure a cottage holiday, and there are options for all tastes and requirements, whether you’re after spacious, pet friendly accommodation or a historic property with bags of charm and character.


What to do on your Forest of Dean cottage holiday


The Forest of Dean has some of the best woodlands in the world and is often used as a location for films. It was also (allegedly) an inspiration for Tolkien’s Middle Earth and you’ll definitely feel as though you’ve stepped onto the pages of a fantasy novel as you wander past twisted boughs and meander along the winding pathways. Puzzlewood, in particular, is a great place to visit with the kids, where you’ll find lots of mazes, farm animals, and picnic areas.


Forest of Dean holiday cottages are a great choice for history lovers, and what Britain may lack in climate it certainly more than makes up for with amazing historic landmarks. The Forest of Dean was actually a royal hunting ground even before 1066, and was also a favoured haunt for the Tudors. There are still traces of this long and prestigious history all over the place, including Tudor and Jacobean manor houses, and castles at Berkeley and Chepstow.


Make your next holiday truly special and choose from some amazing Forest of Dean holiday Cottages, whether you’re looking for something small and cosy or something large and spacious for you and your friends, you’re bound to find exactly what you’re looking for.
