The Lodge Rooms

4.8 (32 reviews)
The Dome Garden
Tel: 07974685818
2 stylish, modern & characterful, B&B rooms inside an eco-conscious, 200 year old, Forest Lodge built of stone and surrounded by trees, right in the heart of the ancient Royal Forest of Dean. Originally the home of the Forest wardens, or Verderers, who used to administer the forest, the building has now been converted into an eco sensitive B&B with 2 beautiful en-suite rooms decorated along the theme of recycling. There is a fire to sit by and, in the busy sessions, a residents-only restaurant and bar. The Lodge Rooms, and The Lodge, itself are part of a wider tourist destination called the Dome Garden, a compact, environmentally sensitive, eco-park with a dozen, space-age, geodesic domes. It's a luxury camping village, with a blend of outdoor life and luxury facilities. There's a lot of fire making and cooking and people are generally very busy. Not so in the Lodge rooms! These are an oasis of calm set back from the body of the busy camp.

If we have a bridal suite, this is probably it. Fabulous double room with a ‘non-living wall’ and the best bathroom on the planet, several steps below! For 200 years forest workers stored coal down here, lit by candles in niches that still line the walls.

Fill the double ended bath and lie back, steeped, not just in bubbles and the flicker of candlelight, but in history too.

If you're early birds, join us for a lovely forest breakfast full of local produce. (It is extra cost and, out of season, needs to be order in advance, but it’s a great way to start the day).Room Facilities:

  • ALL bedrooms Non Smoking

This is a lovely double room with a large en-suite dressing room finished with planks from the pallets that deliver our logs, as well as a supercool ‘Steampunk’ shower. Recycled timber shutters and the front garden environment, make this a quiet room, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the camp.

In the morning, join us for a lovely forest breakfast full of local produce. (It is extra cost and, out of season, needs to be order in advance, but it’s a great way to start the day).Room Facilities:

This characterful, first floor room has high ceilings and is decorated with wood crates, recycled palette wood, and whacky 'non-living' walls.

On one side is a ‘foresty’ en-suite with a rain drench shower. On the other is a balcony deck, with views over the Dome Garden at the back. It's a great place to watch the sunrise too – at least for early birds!

In the morning, if you're hungry, you can join us for a lovely forest breakfast full of local produce. (It is extra cost and, out of season, needs to be ordered in advance, but it’s a great way to start the day).

Amazing place which is not as it appears on first look from the outside. The adventure area and firepit will be great in summer and my son has already insisted we return. Rooms and eating area done in a very unique and refreshing style. The staff exceptionally warm and friendly and enhanced what was already a very positive experience. Recommended for people with young children especially though just as good for couples. My son was very excited about being allowed to feed the chickens as well as trying to look at all the domes out the back. Great stay. Will return

Tips:

Use google maps and it will take you straight to the door - if not you may struggle as there are no signs from main road. Don't be put off by the entrance - it opens out into a reception area - but it doesn't look like that from outside.

We absolutely LOVED our stay. The location./surroundings/setting of The Lodge Rooms is just echanting and The Cole House bedroom and bathroom were spacious and beautifully designed. The warmth of this friendly family run business is apparent the moment you step foot through the gate. Will recommend to friends and most certainly return if ever in the area.

Nathalie and her daughter were excellent hosts and really welcoming. The Coal Store Room we stayed in was perfect for our anniversary with its unusual Bathroom. We love the gardens and domes, with rope swings and zip wires so will definitely bringing the kids next time.

Tips:

Bring your mountain bikes as you can ride out of the door and straight into the forest. Symmonds Yat and the River is only about 10 minutes drive away and has some good pubs and walks.

Great location and a nicely designed room to stay in with the theme. Close to local walking, biking facilities and Symonds Yat where you’ll find lots of restaurants on the river and can enjoy a walk up to Symonds Viewpoint. Comfy bed and spacious. Would recommend some new blinds/ curtains in the bedroom and bathroom for privacy and that are fitted to the window for those who wish to have a lie in as it got very light in the room around 4am, instructions for using the shower and a hairdryer would too be a good investment. Overall I would recommend to a friend and the staff seem very friendly!

Had an amazing and much needed break at the lodge rooms and will definately return. I loved how it’s hidden away in almost a secret location, as when we arrived we thought we were at the wrong place. As soon as we walked inside we were overwhelmed by the beautifully designed interior and fantastic view through the restaurant doors. The owners - lovely family, really friendly and made us feel comfortable. We especially enjoyed home made pizza night followed by sitting around the campfire with the other guests, singing and exchanging ghost stories. Only slight niggle was that there wasn’t any toiletries or cups to go with our kettle and coffee in our room. So when the bar/restaurant was closed we couldn’t get a cup. However, that was one minor inconvenience compared to magical time we had and they did seem really busy as there were a lot of families camping outside. We really look forward to coming again :)

Tips:

We didn’t get much time to explore the area and wasn’t too keen on Coleford, but if you ventured a little bit further, there’s so many amazing/quirky/beautiful places to see. Food- on Friday night we went to the Saracens Head in Symmonds Yat, right on the river with a beautiful view, food was exquisite and staff were very accommodating- highly recommend. On Saturday night the lodge rooms do a home made pizza night which was out of this world - honestly the best pizza we’ve all had. You can choose to either learn the making process or simply choose from an array of toppings. They also provide yummy salads and garlic bread.

Loved everything about this place. Never seen a place like it. Very quirky. We stayed in the Coal Store which was amazing. Paid for breakfast which was delicious. Had a wander round the Dome Village which led off the dining area which looked very child friendly. There were plastic domes to stay in as well as mud/clay "prehistoric" huts which relied on you collecting wood for the heating, cooking and cleaning facilities. All set in a large vegetable garden with bamboo growing around you. A large fire pit and pizza oven come barbecue area which must be pretty special in the summer. A hidden gem as they say.

Tips:

We arrived at 8pm which was a bit late to grab an evening meal so on the recommendation of the manger at the Lodge Rooms we took a short drive to a tapas bar in town called Ritmo. The food was amazing as was the atmosphere.

We stayed in the lodge rooms not the domes. Loved the quirky bathroom. In the grounds, loved the fire pit. Everyone we chatted to found the domes equally comfy & quirky.

Tips:

Just down the road from Puzzle Wood which is a must. Recommend getting there (the wood) at opening time. There are lots of littles around later but we were on our own for the first 30 mins or so which was wonderful.

Unusual. A little quirky. But definitely recommend. The Garden Room was bright and airy and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was good - and you didn't have to get up at the crack of dawn to enjoy it either. ;)

Tips:

Visit Symonds Yat - park on the East side. Take hand ferry across the river & follow the walk to Biblins Youth Camp. Walk across the suspension bridge & back along the other side. Stunning views :). Also The Kymin worth a visit - owned by National Trust. The Forest of Dean is fabulous but a little tired. As are most of the local towns etc. But if you love walking there's plenty to do in the area.

Place was absolutely lovely. Beautiful designed. Only thing we have to say was our door didn't lock. However because it's such a hidden place we didn't mind not having the door locked. Lots of stuff to do, not far into town. Got served a full English with orange juice on table as well as choice of cereal and preservatives for toast. I'd definitely stay again.

Tips:

Puzzle wood is a great thing to do with family. Plenty of pubs for food. When we went we only had a takeaway. But plenty of pubs to have food
