Welcome to your Forest of Dean holiday accommodation

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. At our Forest of Dean B&B we provide an award-winning breakfast and a warm welcome with tea and cake for all our guests.

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.

“Best B&B In The Forest Of Dean. As a regular staying at Edale House this time (3/6/2017) it was a pleasure to meet Peter and Jane the new owners and to find everything as excellent as our previous visits. Wishing you both every success.”

Mr. Michael Accleton, June 2017

“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.”

Guest from Cumbernauld, July 2017

“Jane and Peter are so lovely, they really are perfect hosts. The rooms are scrupulously clean, and well-appointed with little touches which make the difference. The breakfasts are perfectly cooked to order, and I can’t go on enough about the bacon! Locally sourced (like all the food) and hand-carved, if you love bacon you will adore this! The range of cereals is impressive. I was particularly impressed with how well they coped with me being coeliac and needed gluten-free food – it was all handled so well, with me never feeling like I was being a hassle. We’ll definitely be back in the future if we need a place to stay down that way again.”

“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.”

“Hosts Peter and Jane were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was fab. Edale House is decorated and equipped to a high standard and feels homely and comfortable. Welcome coffee and tea with cake and biscuits and a cuddle and biscuit for Molly our spaniel.”
