The Woodman Inn


A traditional country Inn located in Parkend, at the heart of the Forest of Dean.  Bordered to the West by the River Wye, and to the East by the River Severn.

The Forest of Dean offers the opportunity to experience truly magnificent contrasting countryside, with walks and cycle ways through 27,000 acres of Crown Forest. The Woodman Inn is an ideal base from which to discover this beautiful area with its wealth of history and activities.
