When renting Holiday Cottages in the Forest of Dean you will find that there is something in the area to keep every member of the family happy. For example, if you have a railway buff in the family the Dean Forest Railway is an old-fashioned steam railway which runs between Parkend and Lydney Junction and allows you to experience travel as it used to be.
Those interested in other periods in history might find the iron mine and caves at Clearwell in Coleford an exciting day out. The attraction pulls in large numbers of visitors each year and can help you to pass a few hours while you are out and about.
Those staying in Holiday Cottages in the Forest of Dean may be more interested in sampling some of the local specialities, such as the wine which is produced at the Three Choirs Vineyard close to Newent. Newent is a small market town and ideal for stocking up on provisions for your stay or simply doing some window shopping. Newent is also home to the International Centre for Birds of Prey, perfect for those interested in wildlife. The centre has a cafe and a shop and there are regular flying demonstrations.
For a tranquil day out, Lydney Park Spring Gardens are ideal for a picnic. The area is also home to a museum and the site of a Roman temple, so you can have a wander round if you prefer to do something other than take in the scenery.
Renting Holiday Cottages in the Forest of Dean does not mean that you have to spend your time sightseeing. If you simply want the opportunity to spend some quality time with the most important people in your life, this type of holiday is ideal for that too, the choice is yours.
