Pergola with hot tub

Rural seclusion in the Royal Forest of Dean


In the picturesque countryside of the unspoilt and relatively undiscovered Forest of Dean, the cottages of Oatfield nestle in a tranquil cider orchard surrounded by open fields and woodland.

A perfect holiday location with a friendly welcome to children and animals (and their adults), great local pubs and plenty of wildlife spotting opportunities.

Easy to reach, two hours from London and half that from the Midlands, an ideal place to get together with friends, family or just get away from it all. In the secluded grounds you will find: all-weather tennis court, croquet lawn and putting green; wood-fired sauna (shared use) and hot tub (Pimpernel only); children’s play area with swings, slides, monkey bars and climbing towers; plenty of garden furniture and barbecues; an indoor games room with pool table, table tennis, table football, darts, board games; a laundry room open 24 hours, oh and an array of pet animals and wildlife.

The Forest of Dean has stunning walks through 25,000 acres of unspoilt forest, cycle paths voted the best in Britain, and with attractions such as two steam railways, llama trekking, Go-Ape treetop adventure, mountain boarding, fishing, Clearwell caves, craft centres, water gardens, tea shops, pottery, a sculpture trail, wildlifecentres, Tolkien’s Puzzle Wood, there is plenty to do for all ages. Great golf at Celtic Manor, St. Pierre, Monmouth as well as many local courses. Wonderful selection of food trails, smokery, cheese making, perry/cider, bee keeping, vineyards and even a Michelin starred restaurant. On the edge of the lower Wye valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty with much to discover from canoeing to real ale brewing. Great for touring with Bath, Cheltenham, Tintern Abbey, loads of castles, the Cotswold Hills and South Wales all easily accessible.

The Cottages

Beautifully renovated from 17th Century stone farm buildings in a perfect setting. The cottages are comfortable and welcoming with everything you need supplied, including our ample welcome pack. Whatever the season Oatfield offers a home from home in the Gloucestershire countryside.

Meet the owner

Alison Gray

The farm has been home to the Holden Gray family since 2006, and managed by Kate & Alison, with a little hindrance from two children and numerous pets. The picture shows owners and staff on a team building day: drenched, exhausted but happy, having just completed canoeing on the Wye and gorge scrambling in a nearby valley.
