There is a Guest Lounge and sitting room with central heating throughout. We pride ourselves on the quality of our accommodation and friendly service and are pleased to welcome you throughout the year, but regretfully are unable to accommodate smokers and pets. In the days of Yore the Admiralty favoured the Forest of Dean by building many fine ships with its timbers. Admired for their strength and condition nourished from the Gloucestershire soil, the chosen trees were marked with the sign of Dean so they were not spoiled by Yeomen or Forest Folk. There are many well defined Forest Walks which pass through a variety of woodland, including samples of mature beech, oak and sweet chestnut, as well as some ancient holly trees. A variety of tracks through the forest pass areas untouched by man. In contrast there are railway and industrial workings which have long ago been abandoned and which nature had reclaimed. The forest is ever changing season to season and as such can be viewed and explored year round, many visitors choose to return seasonally to witness and experience this wonderful area.
