The ancient Forest of Dean is one of the few remaining royal forests in England. It’s mystical, magical settings were inspiration for the Tolkien book so you can expect something special as you explore from your Treetop Adventure vantage point.

This is a forest designed for family fun - you’ll need a day to discover all it has to offer. Walk, run or cycle – there are routes for all eventualities.

Discover the famous Sculpture trail which is a four mile long walk, featuring sculptures created by artists to interpret the Forest environment and the history of this very unusual landscape. 

Head to Beechenhurst Lodge Visitor Centre once you’ve worked up an appetite.

There’s a café, children’s play area and a climbing tower. 

If you’re still up for more exploring once you've left the site at Beechenhurst there’s a secret world beneath the forest at Clearwell Caves.

  • A really great morning out for my boys aged 14 and 11. Having already done tree top junior we felt our youngest would be fine... he had a really massive wobble and the staff were amazing talking him around and building his confidence. Needless to say once going they loved it and can’t wait to go again!
