The market town of Coleford lies on the Western side of the Forest of Dean. Home to both local government and the Forestry Commission. Coleford is the administrative centre of the Forest of Dean.
Situated within easy reach of many interesting places to visit in the Forest of Dean, from the Wye Valley and Symonds Yat, to the beautiful forest walks in the centre of the forest. Just outside the town are some of the area's best known family attractions, including Clearwell Caves, Puzzle Wood, Beechenhurst and Perry Grove Steam Railway.

Coleford boasts its very own cinema, two excellent golf courses, the Great Western Railway Museum, a nearby off-road driving centre, plus a good range of shops, restaurants, cafes and hotels.

There is a whole range of events that take place in Coleford throughout the year, including the Carnival of Transport in April.

A number of picturesque villages, such as Clearwell, Newland and St Briavels, can be found offering a warm welcome at local inns and hotels, plus the famous Symonds Yat Rock is just 3 miles away.
