Glamping Gloucestershire with Hot Tub
The Nook and Nest at Roost Glamping in Gloucester and The Forest of Dean are two cosy and snug wooden cabins designed to make the most of inside and outside living,
The Nook is finished off with restful dusky pink and sage furnishings and reclaimed scaffold board wood and hand-crafted furniture. The Nest’s interior is a cosy mustard yellow and navy to complement the rustic cedar wood and hand-crafted furniture. Both cabins are bespoke creations by one of the Forest’s talented carpenters.

THE LOCAL AREA
Stroll down the lane to St Anthony’s Well or take a walk into the ancient woodland behind the cabins – there is a myriad of footpaths that can be taken directly off site. Why not bring your bicycle (or hire one and have it delivered to site) and use one of the many cycle routes in the Forest.
A five minute drive away you can enjoy wild swimming in the river Wye or hire a canoe for the day
There is an award winning cookery school in the village – Harts Barn Cookery School.
There are so many beautiful walks. All cabins have an OS ranger map that could give you a different walk everyday for about a year. We have some great trails including Offas Dyke Path and the Gloucestershire Way.
There is a new 50 mile Leaf Peeping Driving Guide for autumn guests.
Mitcheldean boasts two microbreweries, Jolter Press and The Bespoke Brewing Co (both have tap rooms open on Friday & Saturday nights) and are well worth a visit.
There are also some really great restaurants all within a short drive of the cabins. Download our handpicked guide to great places to eat locally during your stay.
The Forest of Dean and Wye Valley area is very dog friendly and many attractions and pubs accept dogs happily. There is an abundance of walks along safe, hard forest tracks to keep out of any mud and also some lovely flat footpaths alongside the picturesque river Wye. Many of them have pubs en route so you can stop for a spot of lunch and a well-deserved rest with your furry friend. The Sculpture Trail at Beechenhurst is a lovely woodland walk and there is a cafe there too. Dogs are allowed outside only.
