Introduction

Comprising the entire first floor of the South East wing of an ancient and historic grade II* listed country house, Dean Hall Apartment provides very spacious and well appointed accommodation. Visitors have the shared use of the beautiful grounds surrounding the house, including a grass tennis court and croquet lawn and there is a sheltered, cobbled courtyard - a real sun-trap - immediately outside the apartment.

The location is very convenient for exploring the woods and paths of the Forest of Dean, a walkers’ and cyclists’ paradise; and for taking advantage of the wide variety of attractions to be found in the area – water sports on the nearby Severn, or the Wye a little further away; or visiting some of the historic sites and buildings in easy reach for a day’s outing – Symond’s Yat, a famous beauty spot on the Wye, and the magnificent ruins of Tintern Abbey further downstream; Offa’s Dyke Path and the Border castles or, to the East, the lovely old cities of Gloucester and Worcester, perhaps taking in a little of the Cotswolds beyond. Almost on the doorstep is the attractive Georgian village of Newnham-on-Severn which provides local shopping.

Light and extremely spacious, Dean Hall Apartment has been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard and provides a bright and relaxing base for a holiday in this unspoilt and interesting part of Gloucestershire.

What our guests say

What a wonderful place to relax - so much character and history

We have just had a fabulous week at Dean Hall in Littledean. It was lovely to share in the history of this fantastic place. The accommodation was great - such spacious rooms - and the welcome from the hosts second to none. Homemade scones and a bottle of local wine to welcome us, then there was the huge garden for our use, with a lawn tennis court and BBQ. A real home from home with everything you need to properly cook if you want to - with the added bonus of fruit and vegetable to pick and use all week. We had to force ourselves to go out and visit the area as we could happily have spent the whole week at Dean Hall!

Holiday with History

Dean Hall is one of the most interesting places we have stayed in, full of charm & character. Pauline & James, who own the property made us so welcome, inviting us to make full use of the lovely 4 acre garden & tennis court. The accommodation was really first class, very clean, everything you needed for a self catering holiday with all the comforts of home. There is so much history attached to this lovely building it was so interesting to have a snapshot of times gone by.

We would highly recommend the bike hire in the Forest of Dean, also the canoeing down the river Wye is a fun experience. If you are a lover of historic castles there are plenty to choose from.

I just wanted to say what a lovely time we had at Dean Hall Apartment between 1st - 8th August 2015. Pauline and James were the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. The apartment was very comfortable and so clean; we were really happy.

Very spcious and comfortable apartment. A great base for exploring the forest and also the Wye Valley. We can recommend Monmouth and Bistro Prego for food, Ross-on-Wye and Wilton court, Gloucester Cathedral and Docks and of course, the amazing Symonds Yat for unrivaled views. So much to see and do - we shall have to come back! Thank you.

Mr and Mrs Street, June 2015

Thank you for such a wonderful welcome! Thoroughly enjoyed the fabulous apartment and grounds. This place has such character! Magnificent trees, seen the bats and met David who has been "bat counting" for years. Lots of walking, Symonds Yat, Soundley Ponds. All in all a wonderful time. Thank you for your hospitality, Pauline and James. (p.s. wine, cheese and scones also fabulous!)

The Owen family, June 2015

Thank you Pauline and James for your warm hospitality. We particularly appreciated your welcome with cheese, olives and chocolate! We hope to return, especially to explore the gardens and the forest tracks. We arrived for a secluded rest and relaxation and this we achieved at Dean Hall - a place of quality. Thank you.

Mr and Mrs Rae, May 2015

An amazing, comfortable apartment that the four of us have so enjoyed staying in. The weather has been superb and allowed us to explore and appreciate this area, also cider in the garden of the Black Pig, Newnham, not to mention lunches by The Wye. Thank you James and Pauline.

Mr & Mrs Peachey, April 2015

Our second visit to this beautiful apartment - very comfortable and a relaxing get away for us. Thank you.

Mrs Henning, December 2013

Thank you for a wonderful week. Excellent property with loads of space, very comfortable. Thank you for all the extra surprises from the garden.

Mr & Mrs Hartley, August 2013

Just a short break, but what a wonderful experience to stay as part of one of the oldest buildings, a lovely base for visiting all attractions around, enjoyed The Little Dean trail! didn't expect it to be so interesting, had a lovely last meal in The White Hart in Newnham..

Mr & Mrs Buck, May 2013

Dean Hall is exactly the right place to be for visiting historic houses and trips to The Forest of Dean. We really appreciated to stay in one of the oldest houses in England. I loved the outstanding sight directly from my bed to the old chestnut trees...

Krefeld family, April 2013

We have had a marvellous holiday here at Little Dean. What you have to offer here is quite unique: breathtaking gardens, very comfortable and attractive facilities and the beautiful Forest of Dean.

Waring family, August 2012

What a wonderful place to stay!...We enjoyed the rooms, the amenities, the views throughout the windows and from the garden places, the quietness - and owls - at night... and last but not least, it's a very good place to start day-trips! We enjoyed cycling and rambling in The Forest of Dean and The Feast of St Mary's in Gloucester Catheral.
