ON TWO WHEELS OR TO THE TREES?

Spanning three counties – Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Monmouthshire, this area of the Forest of Dean has some serious claims to historical fame. It was King Henry VIII’s hunting forest and its mystical, magical settings were the inspiration for the Tolkien books. So, you can expect beautiful views and something a little special from this location.

Enjoy a stroll beside the waterside at the scenic Mallards Pike Lake, where you'll find a café to refuel.

Make a day of your visit – there are a number of walking and beautiful running routes and with such varied terrain and scenery, the Forest of Dean is cycling heaven. There’s something for road cyclists and mountain bikers wanting to go off-road and downhill – fast.

Head over to Puzzlewood which is a popular TV and film location and if you get peckish spark up the BBQ by the water’s edge.
