Combine a three night stay with some serious fun and adventure. We are in striking distance of all the main activities of the Forest of Dean including Puzzlewood (3 mins down the road), Go Ape and the walking and cycling trails of the forest itself. As part of the family adventure package we will kit you out with maps and recommended routes for walking and cycling as well as our bespoke wild swimming map which gives you all the best places to take a dip within 30 minutes of the hotel. You can book picnics prepared by our kitchen to take on the go.
Join the experts at Paddleboarding Adventures for a family morning or afternoon on the river – you get to learn self-rescue techniques, correct position and posture on the board so that you feel safe on the water as well as trying the MEGA board. Karen and her team are passionate about best practice on the river from a sustainability point of view so don’t be surprised if she incorporates some litter picking if she spots any!
Back on dry land spend a whole day exploring the region with bike hire from new company Wye Bikes. Included in the package is E-bike hire for those over 14 or Frog bikes for those who are younger. E-bikes are a fabulous way to explore the forest trails as well as the surrounding villages. Wye Bikes are just a five minute drive away from the hotel in Coleford or you can arrange for them to deliver the bikes to the hotel.
Optional extras which can be booked include a family wildlife safari with expert guide Ed Drewitt – an evening wildlife safari explores the Forest of Dean to spot wild boar, fallow deer, badgers, foxes and hedgehogs as they emerge from their dens to feed at dusk.
Price for the three night family adventure starts from £1125 which includes a three night stay for a family of four in a family room with one dinner one night in the 2 AA rosette restaurant plus a SUP family adventure on the River Wye on one day and one day bike hire for all family members – e-bikes for those who are 14 plus (that means the adults get the easy option! ) and Frog bikes for children. We also have two suites with sofa beds, and two sets of rooms (one twin and one double) which are in separate areas with lockable front doors.
