A former equestrian centre, Deanwood Holiday Cottages are mainly arranged around a central courtyard. Our cottages are only a few steps from each other, making them ideal for groups of friends and extended families. All the group is close by and yet each has their own private space to retreat to.

In the Conference Centre, function rooms are available to hire, ideal for large group dining, activities and meetings.

The cottages are welcoming all year round with full central heating included. Kitchens are fully equipped for self catering with full size appliances. All bed linen and towels are supplied and beds are made up ready for our guests.

Our cottage guests are welcome to enjoy the spacious grounds. The Paddock is a large lawned area where you can enjoy a family picnic or barbecue, challenge your group to a game of football or rounders, or just quietly relax and listen to the birds. Adjacent is an enclosed play area for little ones, with a play train and Wendy House.

The Forest of Dean borders our grounds, and walkers and cyclists have direct access into the forest. Dogs love the miles of interesting paths waiting to be sniffed out! The Forest of Dean is a great cycling area for all abilities - bring your own bikes or hire locally. The Family Cycle Trail follows an old railway track for much of its length and there are also many graded downhill trails for the serious mountain biker.

The Forest of Dean is sandwiched between the Severn and Wye Rivers. River trips, canoe and kayak hire, yachting, fishing and even stand-up paddle boarding are all available under 10 miles from our cottages. The Nags Head RSPB Reserve is in the next village. Many interesting birds, such as the crossbill and red kite, have been spotted locally. There is no shortage of places to visit: caves, heritage centre, castles, NT properties, craft centres.
