If you are planning a group get-together for a celebration, party or even a corporate team away day, you can choose to rent a combination of either: 3 properties (sleeps 16) or 5 properties (sleeps 26), with the added convenience of everyone together in one place. 

Both groups enjoy exclusive use of the fully-equipped Function Barn with kitchen/bar area, cloakroom and TV screen which is ideal for large group dining and entertainment. The barn can take up to 30 guests for private dining.

Each of our well-appointed self-catering holiday cottage enjoys its own private spot in our rural Forest of Dean hamlet. All properties have access to a hot tub and spa treatments for you to enjoy.

We can accommodate all age ranges and our cottages are child and dog friendly - so every member of the family can relax and enjoy their timeout fully.

Make it your Style...

At Forest Barn Holidays, we love a celebration! So whatever kind of party or occasion you are celebrating we can help make it happen the way you dreamed of. It's completely up to you.

Dependent upon the time of year, with such stunning views on your doorstep, you may want to think about being outdoors or even having a marquee on the lawn. The catering options are endless - from fine dining to a hog roast – the choice is yours! 


Precious time together

Share your special day with up to 30 guests on the day and we can offer accommodation to 26 guests onsite in our five self-catering holiday cottages. We can help make sure everyone has an amazing time with you. 


Time to enjoy and relax...

If you choose to rent all 5 holiday cottages, you will have exclusive use of our pretty rural hamlet and the freedom to create a wonderful occasion that you'll all remember forever. We let you take your time to have everything just as you want it. Arrive on Friday to settle in, have all your family and friends around you for the entire long weekend. 


We don't have a wedding licence but we do have an arrangement with a local wedding venue for the registrar ceremony, if required. Then return to the hamlet for your wedding celebration with family and friends.

All The Extras

Not only do we employ our own private chef for dining, but we can also order services from other wonderful trusted local suppliers - outside local caterers, florists, photographers, make-up artists. We can recommend these if you wish or you are free to use your own, if you wish. 

Please give us a ring or email us to let us know what you have in mind and how we can help you create your special celebration to remember.

Llama Treks In The Woods

Meeting at Mallards Pike Lake get introduced to the Llamas, Camels, Mules and Donkey and your guide will show you how to handle them.

The Llamas and camels will then in their own lovely way proceed to teach you anything that the guide forgot to say. 

The animals are extremely well trained and completely "bomb proof". Once everyone is happy you leave Mallards Pike Lake and head directly into the centre of the Forest.

Lunch time comes round so its time to stop for a picnic and while the llamas and camels rest we enjoy lunch. 

The Mallard Pike trek is 7 miles of very easy walking and is designed in such a way that it can easily be shortened or lengthened on the day. The llamas and camels walk at a pace to suit you. They are never in a hurry.
