    ..what a find! We were desperately looking for a last minute property as our New Year's Eve plans were scuppered by a friend getting Covid. We struck gold with Dean Hall. It is the most beautiful old house with a really cosy, yet huge, apartment which the delightful owners rent out. Pauline and James provide everything that you need to make your stay wonderful......delicious local wine, homemade jam and scones, flowers, lovely soaps and shower gels, the most comfortable beds ever, wonderful shower and bath and so many other little things that you need on holiday and don't realise until you haven't got them. They are very kind, interesting people and so,so welcoming. They clearly love their wonderful home and it shows through in everything that they do there. Our stay felt like a huge big hug and we have returned to the "real world" reinvigorated and ready to face whatever 2022 throws at us. Thank you Pauline and James...it was an honour to stay with you in Dean Hall.

    - Mrs Quick, December 2021

    Zoe, it was a pleasure to welcome you both at Dean Hall and so glad you found us. We are always delighted when guests enjoy staying here and enjoy what the Forest of Dean has to offer. May it be a good year for you all. Pauline and James Property Owner

The property

Dean Hall is an ancient and historic Grade II* listed English country house, surrounded by over four acres of parkland and gardens, to which guests have complete access.

Occupying the entire first floor of the South East wing, Dean Hall Apartment provides very spacious and well presented luxury accommodation and has deservedly been awarded 4 stars Gold by Visit England. This wonderful property is steeped in history and was the site of Civil War skirmishes in the 1660s.

Within a few minutes’ walk from the Hall, you reach the breathtaking Forest of Dean which has enough paths for a lifetime of discovery.

The Hall itself is approached through beautiful cast iron gates, down a long drive that is flanked by millions of mauve crocuses in early spring and massive sweet chestnut trees along the drive that are over 350 years old.

South facing, light and extremely spacious, covering approx. 1200 sq.

ft, the interior of the apartment has been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard.

The sitting room is bathed in sunlight in the summer.

In the autumn, winter and early spring months, it is very warm and cosy and has a log burner, with a starter pack of logs, kindling and firelighters provided.

Dean Hall provides a comfortable and relaxing base for a holiday in this unspoilt part of Gloucestershire.

With two separate bathrooms, this is an ideal property for two couples.

You will not be disappointed. Guests have the shared use of the beautiful and extensive grounds surrounding the house.

There are numerous places to sit and enjoy the grounds and relax with a drink or over a meal.

A BBQ is provided and for the more energetic, there is a lawn tennis court that can also be used for a game of croquet.

The owners provide racquets and mallets, but keen tennis players may wish to bring their own racquets.

Guests are invited to help themselves to the fruit and vegetables that are in season from the orchard, soft fruit area and large vegetable patch.

The Welcome Pack that awaits guests includes homemade marmalade, jams, and scones or cake.

Basic essentials such as tea, coffee, sugar, butter, milk and cooking oil are provided as a starter pack.

Dean Hall is central to many outdoor activities and has a barn for bike, canoe and kayak storage.

A bonus is the heated boot room in which guests can hang any wet clothing and walking boots to dry.

This apartment is a fantastic location with plenty of opportunities for walking and cycling through the Forest of Dean or watersports at the River Severn.

If you’re looking for historic sites, then take a trip to the Welsh Border castles and the historic cities of Gloucester and the Cotswolds.
