Forest House is located in Coleford, in the heart of the Forest of Dean, and was formerly a 4* hotel. The owners have converted the property into self-catering accommodation perfect for large groups of holidaymakers wishing to explore the surrounding area. Sleeps 24 in 11 bedrooms.
The recent conversion of Forest House from a 4 hotel to self-catering holiday accommodation has been undertaken with great care by the owners who certainly have an eye for detail. Forest House is a spacious property which can sleep up to 24 in 11 ensuite bedrooms, with two connected bedrooms situated on the ground floor which share an ensuite shower and disabled WC. With a couple of lounges, a dining room big enough to seat all of you at one sitting, a real chef's kitchen and even your own bar, there is ample space for relaxing and entertaining.
Outside the gardens are small but lovingly kept and secure for both children and dogs. A patio area with garden furniture and a BBQ, plus a hot tub area, make it a great place to relax after a long day taking in the surrounding area whether its walking, cycling, canoeing or something a little more adventurous. To the rear of the property is a car park, and there is ample parking on nearby roads too.
The market town of Coleford is the perfect base from which to explore the stunning scenery of the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley. With Forest House occupying a convenient town centre location, it's just a short stroll from the front door to stock up on your groceries and essentials, or pay a visit to one of the many cafes and pubs, there's even a small cinema. Yet within 5 minutes you can also access the footpaths and cycleways which weave through the Forest.
Lovers of the outdoors will not be disappointed, there is so much to see and do in the area whether it's rambling, mountain biking, canoeing, fishing or golf. There are many landmarks and attractions to visit whilst holidaying at Forest House, the nearest being the breathtaking ancient forests at Puzzlewood, famously used to film scenes for Harry Potter, Star Wars and Merlin; the impressive underground caves at Clearwell which chronicle thousands of years of mining; and the Perrygrove Railway and Museum perfect for train enthusiasts young and old.
The Sculture Trail at Beechenhurst is well worth a visit and popular with families due to the outdoor play areas for children, on-site café and BBQs, 4.5 miles of walking trails, climbing tower and Junior Go Ape (adults can swing through the forest canopy too, just down the road at Mallards Pike). If you fancy messing about on the river, taking in the scenery from a canoe or kayak on the River Wye is an unforgettable experience.
There is certainly plenty to keep everyone occupied during your stay at Forest House. Just make sure you allow enough time to fit it all in!
