Self-Catering family holidays in the Forest of Dean

Self-catering lodges make fantastic holidays in the Forest of Dean


Were are now truly into 2020 and it will soon be time to book our self-catering holidays in the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley area of Monmouthshire. Why go self-catering? Why the Forest of Dean and not the Costa del Sol or other places? There are many reasons.

  • Freedom of movement. You are not tied to any hotel or resort itinerary, so, you can please yourself where and when you eat. This also allows you to venture further afield as you have no need to return to base for a set time.
  • Pet-friendly. Forest of Dean Lodges at Coleford are pet-friendly self-catering lodges and cottages. Your pets are as welcome as you are, and we make sure they are just as comfortable. Bringing your pet with you saves a lot on kennel fees, which, in some cases, can be substantive. Also, it is much better for your pet not being separated from you and you, from them.
  • You can plan your holiday. With a self-catering, pet-friendly cottage or lodge, you can plan ahead. Doing this gives you more time to see and do the things that are most interesting to you and you save time by knowing in advance where and when you will be going places and what you will be getting up to.
  • Price: Hotels and resorts can be expensive. All-inclusive even more so. Add to that the cost of pet accommodation and you are starting to feel the financial pinch.
  • Ambience. Because the Forest of Dean Lodges, cottages and cabins is not a huge company, we have more time for our guests. You get the same high-quality service but with a more personal touch.
  • UK destination. Being in the UK, you don’t have hundreds of miles to travel, unless you are visiting from abroad. Travelling abroad involves flights and other expensive and time-consuming variables. Less time travelling to your destination means more time enjoying being on holiday.

Booking your Forest of Dean lodges, cabins or cottages is a simple matter of going to the main pages and checking the availability and prices. From there you can send an email or call us directly to secure the time and accommodation you want. We are always available to help, should you need it. Also, if there is any other information you require, we will be delighted to help where we can.

Please, be aware that the Forest of Dean is a very popular UK holidays destination and so booking your lodge or cabin early is a great idea. You can book at any time for any week of the year.

We look forward to your visit and we hope you have a fantastic 2020.

Dog Friendly Cottages Forest of Dean Lodges

Dog Friendly Cottages in the Forest of Dean – Your dog is as welcome as you are to Forest of Dean Lodges.

Could you leave your pet behind and go on holiday? No, of course not.

Dog friendly cottages in the Forest of Dean ensure that you and your best friend have a great holiday together. We’ve all been in that situation. You want to go on holiday but there are several good reasons not to. Your dog and his welfare sometimes prevent you from having the holiday you want.

The biggest problem is not the cost of boarding kennels, although it is a factor. If, like me, you had a dog who had separation anxiety, you would understand. My dog would howl like wolf, sometimes for days, if he was separated from us.

Dog Friendly Cottages – One good reason to take them with you.

Their dogs might urinate, defecate, bark, howl, chew, dig or try to escape. Usually, right after a guardian leaves a dog with separation anxiety, the dog will begin barking and displaying other distress behaviors within a short time after being left alone-often within minutes. see more.

This was my dog all over. Its as distressing for the owner as it is for the pet.

This is one of the reasons why we at Forest of Dean Lodges in Coleford allow you to bring your pets on holiday with you.

Having your dog on holiday with you is priceless. It also cuts out any worries you might have about leaving them behind. Your dog is as welcome on our Forest cottages and lodges as you are.

As I mentioned above; there is also the cost of boarding kennels. These days, even a minute Chihuahua will cost you a fortune to be put up in a boarding kennels. Some kennels are cheaper than others but 36 pounds per day is about average for a good boarding kennels. That is for one dog!

So, forget the separation from your best friend, forget the sky high boarding fees. Bring your dog with you to our Forest of Dean cottages and we will spoil him as much as we spoil you.

The other great bonus? He has the whole of the Forest of Dean as his playground. You will both have a great holiday. If you need any more information, please contact us.

Private Cottages Forest of Dean – Cottage or Lodge?

Latimer Lodge in the beautiful Royal Forest of Dean.

Private cottages forest of dean or private lodge forest of dean; what is the difference? I’ve been asked this question a number of times and my answer is always the same. The difference is akin to hair and fur.

If you trawl the Internet for the answer, you just get confused. Take this article for instance;

As nouns the difference between cottage and lodge is that cottage is a small house; a cot; a hut while lodge is a building for recreational use such as a hunting lodge or a summer cabin. As verbs the difference between cottage and lodge is that cottage is to stay at a seasonal home, to go cottaging while lodge is to be firmly fixed in a specified position.

I hope that clears that little argument up. Lodge, Cottage, Cabin, people have their own names for these type of buildings. At the Forest of Dean in Coleford, we call our buildings lodges but what is important is that you are sleeping in top class accommodation, whatever you care to call it.
