Right in the middle of the forest. Wonderful walks between forest plantations. Some ways are hard surface others rather more like paths. Fairly level too. The forest is characterful. This location is splendid. Will be back

From Go Ape, segwaying, archery, climbing, puzzlewood to cycling, we thoroughly enjoyed the Forest of Dean even though the weather was a bit damp. Take your walking boots & waterproofs & nothing can stop you from enjoying this lovely area.

Fantastic Easter Break exploring the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean. Lots to do and see. Visited Monmouth, Tintern, Coleford and went for wonderful walks along the River Wye. So many great eateries and the local ales are terrific
