Perfectly Positioned

The House of Bread is in the beautiful Forest of Dean (on the edge of the Wye Valley AONB) and is perfectly positioned for a wealth of beautiful woodland and river walks and many other indoor and outdoor activities in the Forest of Dean and surrounding areas.

There are plenty of ideas of things to do on the general Tourism Association Website or there is a great Tourist Information Centre in Coleford (Tel: 01594 837135) or just take a look below for our ideas for you!

Visit Our Favourite Haunts

Just a few of our favourite local things to do:

  • take a walk down through our local woods to the River Wye and enjoy a glass of wine and food at the pubs at Symonds Yat East
  • a local farm walk (with Brecons views), join the Wysis Way to Joyford, visit The Dog & Muffler before tackling the hill home
  • visit Mallards Pike Lake for a stroll and a coffee (if the food van is there)
  • take in the stained glass window and a stroll to Worgreens Lake before a visit to The Speech House
