Make a holiday cottage in Coleford your home away from home

Coleford is one of a handful of small market towns situated within the beautiful Forest of Dean. Close to the Wye Valley and the Welsh border, it is growing increasingly popular with tourists who enjoy spending their time outdoors amongst nature. HomeAway has a wide range of holiday cottages in Coleford and the surrounding region that offer clean and comfortable accommodation suitable for all types of holidays. Coleford holiday cottages and converted barns sleep between two to six people, and range from ultra modern dwellings to cosy country retreats. Perfect for an adventurous holiday or a romantic getaway, Coleford is Gloucestershire’s hidden gem.

Things to do

-Nature: Outside its centre, holiday cottages in Coleford allow visitors to enjoy the beauty and splendour of the Forest of Dean, a wonderful place to explore. The forest has numerous marked pathways that attract walkers, and there are also many tour and rental companies that operate in the area. Cycle hire, Segway tours, and guided walking tours are just a small sample of the activities available within the Forest of Dean. Some holiday cottages in Coleford are just steps away from everything the forest has to offer.

-Outdoor activities: The Wye Valley is another outdoor paradise offering a multitude of attractions. In addition to its striking beauty and photogenic qualities, the valley is best known as a top canoeing and kayaking destination. The River Wye is the fifth-longest in Britain and cuts through the valley all the way down to the sea. Most parts of the river are gentle and suitable for novices who are simply out for some exercise and to take in the views. Along the way are several notable bridges and charming riverside towns.

-Attractions: Coleford is a charming market town that is distinguished by its Georgian architecture and stone clock tower. The town centre has been designated as a Conservation Area due to its architectural and historical significance. Full of stately Georgian architecture, boutique shops, and excellent pubs, it’s where locals and visitors alike choose to relax and socialise. Many of the holiday cottages in Coleford are within a short walk or drive from the centre of town, making it a convenient place to meet after a day spent exploring the region’s natural surroundings.

-Railways: Perrygrove Railway is a great attraction that comes complete with a fully functioning steam train. In addition to the railway there is a treetop playground for kids, as well as a complete indoor village that visitors of all ages enjoy. If there are enough staff available, visitors are welcome into the engine sheds to get a closer look at how steam trains operate. The Coleford Great Western Rail Museum, meanwhile, is housed within a former goods shed that used to belong to the Coleford Rail Station. It once connected Coleford to the nearby towns of Monmouth and Lydney, but was decommissioned decades ago. Today, the museum houses many artefacts of the former station, many of which date back to the Victorian Era.

Weather in Coleford

Coleford enjoys mild weather that is well suited for outdoor activities. Temperatures are most pleasant from April to October, peaking at 22°C in July and August. It gets quite a bit colder in the late autumn and winter months, but it’s pretty rare for temperatures to dip below freezing. Rain can fall throughout the year, but is most common between October and December.

Travel to Coleford

Getting to Coleford on public transport is a bit tricky since the town does not have a rail station. The easiest method would be to take a train to Gloucester and take the hourly No. 23 bus to Coleford. Most visitors choose to drive directly to Coleford, which is located in between the A40 and A48. It is about 230 kilometres from London and the journey can be accomplished in two and a half hours.

Thoroughly enjoyed it and thought the cottage was fantastic. Amazing views from the front of the property and great location with plenty of places to eat and pubs within short driving distance.Also close to Monmouth being only a few miles away. Cottage was cosy and very well equipped and had everything you could possibly need. Only negative,not that it's much of one but found didn't really cater for families with babies or small children as had no travel cot or high chair so ended up having to take the mattress from my 2 year olds bed with us in the car which luckily managed to just about fit in, but not enough room for highchair. Having said that it worked out ok and we all had a fantastic time. Ian Barton Tenbury wells,Worcestershire

The cottage is spotless, tastefully decorated and very welcoming. Breakfasts are delicious, nothing is too much trouble and the whole vibe is laid back and relaxed. I would highly recommend BroadRock and look forward to going back.

Plenty of hot water and spare towels bed linen etc. Richard was very welcoming and even invited us to arrive early as there was no one staying the night before. The quays have a great atmosphere and everything is on your doorstep.
