We stayed in Bream and thoroughly enjoyed the views, the Forest and the walks. So many good attractions close by also.

If you enjoy nature, history and the great outdoors the Forest of Dean has it all. Great for a short break but you'd need several days to see all the attractions and walks etc

Beautiful historical woodland which offers free parking and walking around. Caught glimpses of wild boar and their young which were truly amazing! Deer and squirrel everywhere!

A hidden gem, between the Rivers Severn and the Wye with great unique small towns and wonderful walking whats not too like. The scenery is stunning and the wildlife often makes an appearance, so care needs to be taken when driving along the forest lanes

Great for hiking, biking, walking, fishing, boating, canoeing, bbq'ing, climbing, exploring, touring, learning, scouting, filming, sleeping, eating, relaxing, and just having a great time with family and friends. Very easy to forget the worlds rat race in this small piece of heaven.

The Sculpture trail, at Beechenhurst, is a great walk for kids. It's quite long, but there are short cuts back to the lodge if the children get tired. A map/guide can be bought from the café. Or RSPB Nagshead at Parkend... More
