Located in the charming village of Parkend, Edale House B&B is an ideal venue for your Forest of Dean holiday. A well restored and stylishly comfortable Georgian style guest house, the property has six en-suite bedrooms, a large guest lounge with licensed bar, breakfast room, off-road parking and relaxing gardens (by arrangement). At our Forest of Dean B&B we provide an award-winning breakfast and a warm welcome with tea or coffee available for all our guests or arrival.

With the Forest of Dean on our doorstep, all major attractions are within easy reach. We are adjacent to the RSPB Nagshead nature reserve, close to a huge array of activities and sights and easily accessible to the many miles of walking and cycling paths within the Forest. In fact there is a path at the back of our garden so you don’t even need to get in the car! We also have secure cycle storage, a workshop and bike wash on site making this an ideal B&B for cyclists.

Within a short distance of Edale House is the mysterious Puzzlewood (featured in episodes of Merlin and Doctor Who), Clearwell Caves, Cannop Ponds, The Dean Heritage Centre (The Museum of the Forest), GoApe, the Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail, two golf courses and many other attractions plus we are also not far from the beautiful Wye Valley. There are many excellent pub/restaurants close by and Parkend is a historic village with a warm community and many facilities. Bike hire is available in the village, there are two pubs and there is a steam railway, shop and café.

“Edale House what a lovely experience.
We arrived to a very warm welcome. We were served tea before we had checked in. The owners were very friendly. There was a lovely large lounge for guests to use, well stocked with books and local area information. The room was large, very clean and airy. The bed was comfortable. There were tea/coffee making facilities. The bathroom was also very clean as were the towels. The breakfast was freshly cooked and there were plenty of choices. Perfect!”

“Can’t recommend Edale House highly enough. Peter and Jane are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble. The food is wonderful (hand-carved bacon, bliss!) rooms are spotless and comfortable, and the WiFi stable 😉 The location is absolutely beautiful, and Peter or Jane will happily advise on good walks, cycle routes or other things to do in the area.”

“Great Stay & Welcoming! We stayed at the B&B on the first weekend in November. This is the second time we have stayed here and absolutely love it.
The owners are very welcoming and offered us a hot drink when we arrived. The B&B is very clean and tidy. The room was large and laid out well. The bed was comfortable and there was even a mat on the bed to put our bags on (nice touch).The breakfast was great and cooked fresh, with lots of selection.Would recommend staying here and we have already booked for a visit next year”

“This is a first class Bed and Breakfast place to stay. It is very comfortable and the hospitality from the owner is lovely. We could recommend Edale House to anyone. It is very close to the Dean Forest Railway if you happen to be an enthusiast.”

“Best B&B we have stopped in.
We are regular visitors to the area and had the opportunity to stop over without kids. We were warmly welcomed at the door and lead into a beautiful living room with a log fire and provided with tea and homemade cake. That’s how check in’s should be! The room was very comfortable, and breakfast was pre ordered so for a fussy eater like me was fab. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay we would definitely stop here again”
