Welcome to Deanfield

A warm welcome awaits you at this Visit England 4 star, first class Guest Accommodation, set in the heart of the Royal Forest of Dean.

Originally the house was home to the village quarry-master, but now Deanfield has been providing holiday and business accommodation since 1990. The house is perfectly situated, surrounded by cycle and walking trails and the Nagshead RSPB Nature Reserve, our reviews say we are a perfect base for cycling and walking holidays. Just 3 properties away is The Woodman Pub and a short walk the other side of the cricket green is The Fountain Inn, both have restaurants and we recommend both highly for food & drink.

As mentioned in the Guardian/Observer





About the area

Once the hunting ground of Kings from the Normans onwards, the Royal Forest of Dean possesses a character, history and culture all of its own. Covering some 24,000 acres, year round it is the ideal location for a romantic break, family holiday or as a base for touring (cycling or walking).

First time visitors are enchanted by the variety of attractions and activities, while those familiar with this peaceful and unique slice of England’s heritage return to enjoy its charms again and again.

Parkend itself is superbly positioned at the heart of the Forest, putting many amenities within easy reach. Our location could hardly be better, as many regular visitors will testify.

Deanfield backs onto the RSPB’s Nagshead Nature Reserve and cycle & walking trails surround the village, and start from the gate. The famous Dean Forest Railway runs to unspoilt Parkend. Golf and fishing are nearby with Lydney, Coleford and Clearwell Caves being just 4 miles away. The Woodman Pub is 50 yards up the road and The Fountain Inn is a short stroll across the village. Both have restaurants and are perfect for an afternoon lunch or evening meal.

From Ross-on-Wye in the north to Chepstow in the south, Gloucester in the east and Monmouth in the west, nowhere in the Forest is more than half an hour away by car from Deanfield or Deanfield Coach House. Picturesque Parkend village has a Post Office, cafe’s, cricket green, pubs with restaurants, shops, an Inn and cycle hire.
