Explore the Forest of Dean, The Wye Valley, Gloucester, Cheltenham and the Cotswolds.

Blaisdon House is ideally situated for exploring the Forest of Dean, The Wye Valley, Gloucester, Cheltenham and the Cotswolds.

We are located on the edge of the Forest of Dean and just 5 minutes drive will take you into the heart of the area where you can find so many things to do.


If you enjoy cycling then you will love the Forest of Dean.  There are many places to go on your own or as part of a group.  There is a trail centre in Canop which offers leisure cycling tracks and mountain biking with tracks for beginniner or serious bikers looking for an exhilerating ride.

You can, of course, hire bikes at the centre, but if you bring your own, Blaisdon House has a brick built secure outbuilding for storing your bikes and wet gear, complete with a pressure washer.


Walking starts at Blaisdon House.  We are set in a lovely village with a public foot path even starting at the end of our drive!  Apart from the many walks in the area surrounding our village there are plenty of others nearby, which range from a gentle stroll to a more arduous trek.   There is a walking group which walks from the local pub each Tuesday night too if you fancy joining in.

We have several maps and books here at Blaisdon House which you are free to borrow, but you might also like to plan ahead and check out this link which offers all the main walks in the area:   Forest of Dean Walks






There are many places to go if shopping is the fix you need.  We love Monmouth, Ross on Wye and Cheltenham.  You need a car to drive to them, but within 15 minutes you can be shopping to your heart’s content.

We always offer a better room price over the phone, as it cuts out the middle man such as booking.com.
