Chill out, catch up and connect in your very own Hotel in the centre of the Forest of Dean. Forest House was once the home of industrialist Robert Mushet, the inventor of Steel, and more recently has been run with love and care as a 4* Hotel. In July 2021 the ground floor was fully refurbished and redecorated to include a stunning new kitchen.

If you love the Forest of Dean as much as we do you'd be hard put to find a better location from which to explore its wonders. The House is right in the centre of the lovely market town of Coleford, so you can walk to shops, pubs, restaurants and the Studio Cinema.

Despite this central location just walk 5 minutes  from the door and you're off road and into the scenic trails of the Forest of Dean, one of England's oldest. You can walk or cycle for miles, traffic free, and visit local landmarks like Puzzlewood (where they've filmed Harry Potter, Merlin,  and Star Wars ) The Sculpture Trail, Symonds Yat, and the glorious River Wye. Keep an eye out for the wildlife won't you, especially the Wild Boar (though they're more likely to run from you than vice versa!)

The house has everything you need, sleeps 25 in 11 en suite bedrooms . As it was a successful 4* hotel it's superbly equipped with a couple of lounges, a games room with slate bed pool table, a stunning dining room where you can all sit round the table in comfort and a real Chef's kitchen with everything you need to cater for the party with ease. You can really have fun together making and baking.

Outside there's a garden, a barbecue (of course), a furnished patio and a funky Hot Tub area for a bit of chilling after a day walking or cycling in the Forest or Canoeing down the nearby Wye. What could be better? We welcome up to 2 pets.

Bedrooms are all ensuite, most with TV's, modern bathrooms, spacious, comfortable, and (so important) warm. On the Ground floor there's a Double ensuite plus twin with adjacent bathroom.

Forest House also has an E chargrer instualled.

Forest House, its what holidays were made for.
