Self Catering Cottages

If you are looking for self catering cottages in the Forest of Dean, look no further than Forest of Dean Lodges they are beautifully converted and set in an idyllic location, private and quiet but close to all the local attractions.

They were originally built in 1675 and retain many of the original features including exposed stone walls and beautiful oak beams. The conversion into self catering cottages took place over the last 12 months so they have the character of an old building but the luxury of a modern home with under floor heating, dish washer etc.

The cottages are set in a clearing in the forest totally surrounded by woodland therefore ideally situated for walking in the forest without the need of getting into a car. Opposite the end of the long driveway there is an area that is known locally as ‘the dips’ this is great for ………….BMX biking. we are in the mountain bike park so cycling is right from your door.

From the self catering cottages you can access the forestry commission road and connect up with the family cycle trail, the downhill biking area and also Pedal a bike away are all nearby. There is also a children’s park just through the woods.

We provide bedlinen and towels. Dogs are most welcome, but please do not leave dogs unattended in the cottages. We do have the contacts details for both child and dog sitters.

In May the area around the lodges is covered with bluebells and in the autumn the forest is stunning with all the browns and golds of the turning leaves.

We are blessed with a multitude of wildlife such as deer, badgers, rabbits, foxes, bats and, of course, wild boar. We have a resident pair of buzzards and there are so many different species of birds.

The location is outstanding for privacy and convenience. Not only are we set close to the scenic route but this section of the Forest of Dean affords easy access to the Wye Valley, South Wales, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire.
