Tigs Cottage

Deanwood Holiday Cottages offer a choice of thirteen self-catering retreats ideally placed in a courtyard setting amongst tranquil extensive grounds on the edge of the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire.

Offering a warm welcome to couples, families, friends and dogs (three are kept pet free), the cottages accommodate two to five guests or larger parties when multiple cottages are rented together. Whether you are looking for a quiet romantic break, a family holiday or want a venue to celebrate a special occasion (weddings welcome), the cottages have wide appeal with all the right ingredients to relax and unwind.

The Forest of Dean is centrally located in the country making it easily accessible for many, and offers a glorious setting for a host of outdoor adventures. A haven for wildlife, this tranquil area was once a royal hunting ground with ancient woodland that is teeming with birdlife (including buzzards) as well as deer, sheep that roam freely and even wild boar.

Just half a mile from the Gloucestershire village of Yorkley, guests have the choice of two village pubs within walking distance, as well as a Post Office. You can walk out from the front door and enjoy miles of wonderful walks through the forest. Bring your bikes (or hire them) and explore the waymarked trails offering everything from a leisurely cycle through the trees to a downhill mountain bike challenge (facilities are available for storing and washing down bikes). There are also great opportunities for kayaking, golf, aqua zorbing (for those brave enough!) and surfing on the Severn Bore (a truly fascinating natural phenomena that regularly occurs throughout the year).

Centrally heated, each cottage provides a warm welcome at any time of the year. Sympathetically converted from farm buildings, accommodation is comfortable and well appointed with all the right ingredients to relax and unwind at the end of the day.

The closest town is Lydney (just three miles from the cottages) which offers a good choice of shops (including supermarkets), eateries, take-aways and a leisure centre with indoor pool (as well as summer outdoor pool), tennis courts and a lake for fishing. A larger selection of shops can be found in the Regency Spa town of Cheltenham (with its famous race course), Gloucester, Newport and also Cardiff - all within driving distance and worth visiting.

For day trips out, follow in the footsteps of Merlin and enjoy the magic of Puzzlewood; spend the day at Symonds Yat soaking up the incredible views, wildlife and river scenery; take a leisurely ride on the Dean Forest Railway; go underground at Clearwell Caves (a great rainy day activity); take the younger ones to Perrygrove Railway or visit Goodrich Castle (NT) - the choices are plentiful and diverse.
