we have just come back from a weekend in forest of dean. we stayed at forest holidays and booked a caving experience through our site reception for the sunday. when we arrived we realized that it was just us 4 doing the caving on that day. where as the groups are normally up to 10 people. this was to our advantage as we really got the most out of time with the instructor who tailored the day to our needs. our instructor James was so friendly and helpful. he was full of knowledge about the caves and made us feel safe at at ease despite the biggest lad in our group being scared!!! i must say this experience was much harder then we thought. but in a good way! we expected a stroll through some caves with a few crawls! my god the 4 of us were put to the test. we had a 20min hike down to the caves and when we got inside the caves it was incredible!! we had to crawl through narrow tunnels and small openings. James said he takes groups of school children down there but we all definitely felt this is an experience for all ages. we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. one member of our group really felt nervous about even entering the opening of some of the caves but with James putting him at ease and re assuring him he was able to complete all the caves!! i would definitely recommend this trip to all ages!! it is a MUST if you visit the forest. We are already planning to return and do canoeing with this company!
