The nearest shopping facility is the local post office and shop within a 5 min. walking distance. A wide range of shops are available in Lydney or Coleford both a 10 minute drive from Parkend.

Getting here:

We are three miles from the town of Lydney and a similar distance from Coleford. There is a bus stop close to our front door but bus services throughout the Forest are very limited. The main train station is at Lydney, 15 minutes away by car, with services to Gloucester and Newport. There are a number of local taxi services for which we can supply contact numbers.

In case of emergency, we can be contacted via the internal bell located in the reception area.
