About this location

The Gloucestershire region

You may wish to discover the area's history with a trip to the Dean Heritage Centre. It has five onsite galleries exploring the history of the Forest from the Ice Age to the present day; a reconstructed Victorian cottage; a charcoal burner's camp; an adventure playground; daily chainsaw carving demonstrations; a variety of animals, an onsite gift shop and a newly refurbished café so plenty to see and do.

Clearwell Caves is one of Britain's most complex and oldest mine workings; dating back well over 4,500 years where you can explore nine atmospheric caverns with an ancient and intriguing past or how about spending some time riding a steam train through the forest or taking a cruise down the River Wye.

If you're feeling brave and adventurous Go Ape! needs to go on your 'to do' list. If you love long walks and peaceful surroundings the Sculpture Trail is well worth a visit along with the Cyril Hart Arboretum and then how about refreshments at the Speech House Hotel, a former 17th century hunting lodge which hosted the "Court of the Speech"; a parliament for the Verderers and Free Miners managing the forest, game, and mineral resources of the area.

If twitching is your thing then a visit to Symonds Yat Rock is a must! A viewpoint for peregrine falcons and the site of an Iron Age hill fort. The area was also used as a film lcoation for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. And if film locations are of interest, Puzzlewood is a magical and mystical place just 5 miles away and used on the set of BBC's Merlin, Dr Who and a recent 3D film Jack the Giant Slayer starring Ewan McGregor.

"new year stay"

Stayed here for a short break over New Year. Great accommodation, clean and modern. Nice friendly owners. Would recommend and will return.… More

I'm glad you enjoyed your break and it was lovely to meet you both and your beautiful Labrador. Hope to see you again later in the year.

"Fabulous stay in the forest"

We've just returned from a lovely long weekend staying at the Forest Coach House. Tracey was extremely welcoming and helpful. The place is lovely. Well presented and spotlessly clean. We couldn&#… More

It was lovely to meet you both. Long walks in the Forest are good fun whatever the weather but especially nice when the sun shines! Thanks for choosing the Forest Coach House and taking the time to share your lovely comments with everyone. Best wishes, Tracey

"Best Self Catering accommodation we've stayed in"

You will not be disappointed should you choose to stay at the Forest Coach House . It is apparent on arrival just how much thought and care has been given to this holiday let .It is beautifully decora… More

It's lovely meeting fellow dog owners, especially when their dog is so well behaved! I do hope to see you all back again soon and I know my two little ladies will look forward to seeing Tilly too! Thanks for taking the time to leave such a positive review and I'm really glad you had a wonderful stay.
Best wishes

"Fantastic base for the Forest and area"

This property is the perfect home from home base for the area. Tracey the owner has done this accommodation superbly well. She has thought of everything that you could possibly need. Tracey provided u… More

Thank you for your fabulous review. I am glad you had a great time and found the Forest Coach House a convenient place to stay. I like to make sure everything is provided so you can simply arrive, unpack and relax (nothing worse than having to scratch about trying to find a corkscrew!) Information about the local area is useful to help get the most out of a stay - however brief! I do hope you'll be back soon (with your mountain bikes next time - thousands of acres of woodland still left to explore!) Best wishes, Tracey

"Highly recommended"

We had a great stay at the Forest Coach House. Before and after booking Tracey responded to all of our emails and questions quickly and in a very friendly manner. On arrival there were freshly baked m… More

Thank you so much for such a lovely review! I am always delighted to hear from happy quests who have enjoyed themselves exploring the local area and beyond. I enjoy making the Forest Coach House clean and comfortable and the reviews really do make all the hard work very worthwhile. I am very proud to live in such a fabulous part of England. I will agree the town is very tired and could do with a boost - much like many towns up and down the country but what we lack in posh shops and wine bars we certainly make up for in rich heritage and friendly loyal foresters! Not to mention acres of woodland walks which are particularly spectacular when the beech trees start to turn gold from about mid-September through to Christmas. The dogs get very excited and love visitors as much as I do so we all hope to see you back again some day when you would be made very welcome. Best wishes, Tracey.

"Our home in the UK"

We had a wonderful week staying at the coach house in July. The accommodation was lovely providing everything we could possibly need. We felt we were friends of Tracey well before we arrived in Cinder… More

It was a pleasure to finally meet you both and I am glad you had such a good time. Knowing that you would be so far from home, I wanted to make sure you had all the information to help you make the most of your time spent in the UK and you certainly managed to get around easily! The local buses provide an invaluable service for those wishing to leave the car behind for a relaxing journey saving you money on fuel & parking and giving you the chance to see the local area (and on top of the double deckers - a peep over the high hedges!) Best wishes to you both in Australia and thank you for choosing the Forest Coach House for your adventure in the UK, Tracey and family x

"Lovely stay"

What a lovely little house, perfect for two nights. All the extra touches made us feel really welcome. The dogs were a massive hit with my daughter.… More

It was lovely to meet you all and as you say a couple of nights is perfect at the Forest Coach House if, like yourselves you're passing through the area or for those simply wanting a quick break to recharge batteries. Our two dogs are very friendly and love meeting people so the admiration was most definitely mutual! Thank you for choosing the Forest Coach House and I hope to see you again if you're ever in the area. Best wishes, Tracey

"Just lovely..."

We arrived to fresh muffins, flowers, milk in the fridge and a toy, treats and a dog bed for our dog. My daughter was so chuffed to see her name on her bedroom door and also the basket full of books, … More

It was a pleasure to meet you all and I am so glad Tinkerbell had so much fun in the woods (and at the pub!) The Forest of Dean is a fabulous place to explore - especially when you have a dog (and kids love it too!) Thanks for your comments, hope to see you back again when you can be sure of a warm welcome. Best wishes, Tracey

"A Perfect Stay"

We stayed in The Forest Coach House for two nights over the weekend and could not have been more impressed with our stay. As soon as we arrived (weary and exhausted from travelling) Tracey was there … More

Thank you for such a lovely review and I'm so pleased you found everything you wanted in the kitchen. Bourton-on-the-Water is fabulous and an easy drive from the Forest of Dean. I'm always happy to share the Forest Coach House as a real home from home and a wonderful base for exploring! I do hope to see you again if ever you're in the area when you can be sure of a very warm welcome. Best wishes, Tracey

"Home from home!"

We had a lovely stay at the coachouse for our first family holiday. The welcome was lovely and little touches made us feel very welcome! There were clean beds treats and toys for the dogs and treats f… More

I am delighted that you found the Forest Coach House a real home from home and especially so as it was your very first family holiday with your beautiful baby daughter. I do hope to see you all back again one day with your two very well behaved little dogs so you can explore the area with its many sites to see and things to do. Best wishes, Tracey
