The Roost Luxury Glamping

2 luxury, adults only cedar cabins each with its own hut tub, log burner and fire pit (& dog friendly). Set in 2.5 acres of woodland edged meadow within an SAC (Special Area of Conservation).

Glamping in or near Mitcheldean - 2 units each sleeping 2


The Roost is two luxury, adults only hand built cedar cabins set in 2.5 acres of woodside meadow within an SAC (Special Area of Conservation) in the beautiful Forest of Dean. Featured in the Sunday Telegraph as one of 15 Great Cabin Escapes in the UK.

We are dog friendly too.

Be assured, we have put into place cleaning protocols inline with government guidance and are certified as “We’re Good to Go” from Visit England.   

Everything provided  is of the upmost quality and welfare.  There is all the kitchen equipment you will need - a kettle, toaster, induction hob, fridge (with small freezer) and a dishwasher.  Plus pots, pans, crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils, washing up liquid, dishcloths, tea towels, cooking condiments, fresh ground coffee plus, various teas plus rice, pasta & porridge oats.

Relax and put the kettle on -  I also include some of my homemade scones with butter & jam.

All your bed linen and extra fluffy Egyptian towels and bath robes are included too.

Keep snug inside with the woodburner (and a generous basket of logs) or step outside and luxuriate in our Japanese hot tub (think hot tub without jets & lights) - filled with fresh water for each use, meaning no nasty chemicals!

Step off the veranda into the meadow to your fire-pit.  We include barbecuing equipment for you to enjoy some "smoke & sizzle" too!   If you fancy just "staring at the stars" then enjoy sitting on the swinging cedar love seat. You will find your stay the perfect way to disconnect - but don't worry, I wasn't going to forget free, fast and reliable WiFi -so after a day of exploring the countryside, you can wind down listening to the bluetooth speaker or stream a film or post that Instagram holiday snap!

You'll find  staying at The Roost to be an immersive experience, nestling into the landscape and local wildlife. Features such as the cabins' living roofs, the wildlife pond and patches of beautiful wildflower are dedicated to sustaining our local bees, bats and all wildlife alike. 

We pride ourselves on our green credentials and are happy to say we have an electric car charging point onsite for your use too.

With all the wonderful cycle routes and paths in the Forest, why not bring your bike?  We have a lockable bike shed and bike wash area.

Woof! We welcome 2 small dogs or 1 medium sized dog. We leave a blanket, towel, poo bags, water & food bowel and a treat for each dog. I will also give you information on dog friendly pubs and restaurants in the area.  If you pooch has got a bit muddy on all those lovely walks, we provide doggy towels and have a dog wash area behind the site office.

There is a charge of £25 for one dog (£35 for two dogs) per stay. This is payable by card to the owner before arrival - a payment link will be sent to your email address.
