Attraction details
Owner description: The Secret Forest is a part natural and part man made landscape and has a roundhouse village demonstrating how iron age workers may have lived in three replica roundhouses showing different methods of construction. The landscape walk is through an open former iron age mine system that is open to the sky and known locally as ‘Scowles’; the outcrop of the crease limestone cave system which started forming approximately 180 million years ago. The abandoned mines were taken over by nature and have created a beautiful ancient woodland with trees over 800 years old. The circular path is approx. 600m long within gentle rock and root formations. Our mission is to preserve and promote the appreciation and enjoyment of our natural environment through art, education and nature. We run courses and events. OPEN 10am to 3pm DURING SCHOOL HOLIDAYS AND WEEKENDS and by prior appointment, unless otherwise stated. See website for details. There is a tearoom and eco-toilets. Check before you travel.

It is a quite magical place and definitely worth half an hour of your time. A green and shady place with amazing rock formations. Very unusual
