About Hideaways Forest of Dean Cottages

The early days

Hideaways has specialised in letting holiday cottages since 1975 when Wessex Hideaways was first created and operated from a small office in Salisbury. At the time, holiday letting was in its infancy; now it has become a major sector within the tourism industry with a vast number of properties available across the UK.

Cottage knowledge

While Hideaways has grown too since those early days, we have remained true to our principle of only offering properties, which we know well and have inspected personally, thus ensuring we are better equipped to help our guests find accommodation that meets specific needs and preferences.

Our Forest of Dean and Wye Valley selection

Hideaways has been letting cottages in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley for over 15 years and it’s an area we’ve come to know and love and wish to share with our visitors. The Royal Forest of Dean is one of England’s few remaining forests and combines outstanding natural beauty with a fascinating history and heritage as well as an aura of magic and mystery, which has been the inspiration for great writers such as Tolkein and JK Rowling. We hope that our current, very varied selection of cottages will help you to become acquainted with this unique but lesser-known area. “What to do and what to see” is never a problem here so come back again and again, you will always be welcomed.
