Welcome To Deanwood Holiday Cottages
Deanwood Holiday Cottages is run by husband and wife team, John & Elaine Edwards who moved to this beautiful area in the Forest of Dean in 2011.
One thing which is very important to them is the cleanliness of their self catering cottages and the grounds. As on-site owners they can keep a close eye on this and they are on hand to answer any questions and also attend to a problem if one should arise.
The cottages, which sleep up to 5 guests plus pets, are mainly arranged around a central courtyard. As dog lovers, John & Elaine know how important it is to be able to bring your pet on holiday with you, and what better area to bring your dog to than the beautiful Forest of Dean with its miles and miles of footpaths, and how much closer can you get to the Forest of Dean than here at Deanwood Holiday Cottages, where a gate from the paddock and a gate from beside the car park give you access straight onto the footpaths of the Forest of Dean! They have added touches such as the Welcome Doggy box which contains a dog towel for drying off after those long walks, a poop-scoop and supply of disposable bags. In the courtyard is an outside tap and hose - very useful for washing muddy dogs, boots and bikes etc!
The Forest of Dean is criss-crossed with cycle paths as well as footpaths so John & Elaine know many of their guests will be wanting to bring their bikes with them on holiday. They have therefore built a bike shed so that you have somewhere to leave your bike for those times when you don’t want to take it with you. They also stock a good selection of maps and guides for walkers and cyclists which you can buy.
Bed linen and towels, including towels for your dogs, are provided in the cottages and there is nothing extra to pay for heating or electricity.
This year a new Wendy house has been installed in the children's play area complete with fitted kitchen! Outside, colourful child-size picnic tables invite imaginative play, as well as real picnics.
The village of Yorkley is easy walking distance from Deanwood Holiday Cottages being only half a mile away. In Yorkley Village there are 2 general stores, one of which also houses the Post Office, 2 village pubs, a hairdresser, Health Centre and Community Centre.
