The General Stores, Mill End, Mitcheldean
(entrance round the back in New St)
The General Stores, Mill End Mitcheldean is a historic Grade II listed building in the Royal Forest of Dean which dates back to the 1400′s and includes many original features combined with all modern comforts.
The General Stores is situated on the edge of a village, which has all the amenities one might need for a weekend away, and the courtyard garden is completely private and not overlooked, other than by George Cottage, part of the complex, with great views up the hills behind.
Currently available as a 4 star holiday or business let sleeping up to 40 guests over five units, or on an individual B&B basis, the inter-connected, five unit properties offer easy access to a range of fantastic outdoor attractions within the Forest of Dean area.
The General Stores, Mill End Mitcheldean has been featured in Grand Designs magazine, received a small restoration grant from the Forest of Dean Council and is usually open to the public annually as part of National Heritage Week.
The building has also been approved by the Tourism Board for Ramblers, Families and those with pets, plus we now cater for bike enthusiasts – offering secure outdoor storage, bike racks, boot racks, hose down area and outdoor hanging space for wet clothes for bikers and walkers.
The General Stores is an absolutely perfect venue for family re-unions, 60th birthday parties or big wedding anniversaries with all the generations together, 40th birthday parties with children brought along to share the occasion, hen parties, active outdoor extreme sports weekends using all the local attractions, business dinners and private dining.
We also offer an absolutely fantastic (though we say so ourselves) range of add-on attractions for your stay here, including cocktail training or chocolate classes, butlers in the buff or burlesque dance classes and in house pamper treatments and pamper hampers.
And we offer in house catering from our sister company Il Bordello, with buffets, three course dinners, cream teas and mad hatter’s tea parties – even themed dinners, working with thevintagehire.com offering vintage china, cut glass, bone handled cutlery and uniformed staff to complete the look!

“Thanks again – my brother was so taken with the house that he’s talking about doing the same for his fortieth – so we may be back”!
