Puzzlewood - A Magical Day Out in the Forest of Dean. Why is Puzzlewood magical? Is it the maze of pathways winding through deep gulleys of moss covered rocks, the twisted roots of the Yew trees or the bridges, ‘lookouts’ and features to find on...more

Visited on a hot sunny day. It is like stepping into a fantasy world. Undulating pathways which can be steep and slippery so decent footwear is essential. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Took us about an hour as we took our time. A great place if...More
Came to puzzle wood expecting a day out in the woods walking. Far from what we was thinking. We paid £7 each entry fee and literally walked the whole of the woods in under an hour. If we would have known we would have walked...More
Initially I was surprised you had to pay but at the end of or time there I decided it was worth it. Great fun in the woods trying to find all the main bits. Lots to see and do, fun for all ages. You can...More
My wife and I drove here from Gloucester on the recommendation of a museum curator. We overshot the unimpressive entrance which was not well advertised and the gates were locked. We phoned through to discover that Puzzlewood doesn't open until 10am - no times on...More
Dipping and diving through moss covered rocks and trees, over wooden bridges, down rocky steps and feeling at times like your the only one in an undiscovered magical land! Puzzlewood also has a selection of goats, cows, ducks, chickens and ponies prior to entering the...More
If you love twisty walks and scenes out of fatasy films then this place you will love. Not an all day event but the keepers are lovely and work hard to preserve the place against the land owner who would just bulldoze it. Take appropriate...More
Having read some reviews prior to visiting I was a little apprehensive in how my teenage daughters and wife would react. The facilities are limited but adequate, there is a small gift shop, toilets are good and clean, there is both open and covered picnic...More
We had a great day out recently at Puzzlewood.
The wood is very enchanting and great fun to explore and locate the 10 coins (fortunately we managed to). However, if you are not stable on your feet it's not the place to be. The steps...More
Walking along paths among moss-covered tree roots, it’s a woodland like no other! Great especially for children 6+. Pathways get very slippery when wet, wearing shoes with good grip (not wellies) is best. The paths inter-connect (no maps) it’s not a big woodland but there’s...More
An intriguing forest with many paths through. A little expensive for families with teenagers or adults but more to do with younger children (playground, indoor maze). There is a small farm with ponies, goats, donkeys and cows which the younger children appeared to enjoy.
No. Not in the woods. If a child needs to be in a pram, then I would say that they are too young to really enjoy the woods. There are lots of steps, in places it is narrow. It can be slippery when wet.
