Luxury pet-friendly cottages in the Forest of Dean
Cancel the kennels and feel the welcome and warmth of our dog-friendly cottages in the Forest of Dean. Ideal for families or friends with curious hounds, you can explore this magical forest with millions of ancient trees, pet-friendly fun and family activities to enjoy. Set near the border of England and Wales, the forest spans West Gloucestershire and Herefordshire, while Monmouthshire and the Shropshire Hills are just a few miles away. Lighten the luggage as you’ll find everything you need in our pet-friendly holiday cottages, from well-equipped kitchens and welcome packs to enclosed gardens and open woodland trails; our cottage owners have thought of everything for a cosy stay in the Forest of Dean.
Venture into this magical forest landscape from our luxury Forest of Dean cottages, where your canine companions will be mesmerised by the birdlife and wildlife. Look out for the most dog-friendly trails; you may need to add a leash to excitable pups as the waggy-tailed verdant forest is also home to livestock, wild boar, deer and birdlife - Bailey may be confused by the sight of Mandarin ducks nesting in the trees. For day trips, delve into market town heritage in Coleford and Cinderford, while Ross-on-Wye beckons with independent shops, food, and wonderful architecture. Go hiking near the majestic boulder Symonds Yat’s Rock and watch colourful canoeists meander along the Wye. Enjoy family cycles along forest trails or enjoy picnic feasts. Choose from a variety of dog-friendly Forest of Dean accommodation with enclosed gardens, where you can relax after long walks, where your only worry is guarding the BBQ burgers.
We also have a wider variety of luxury cottages just over the border in Wales suitable for both you and your furry friends - read our dog-friendly guide to South Wales to see what you can enjoy there with Fido by your side.
