England The Forest of Dean


The Forest of Dean

An ancient sea of 20 million trees, with free-roaming boar, crumbling abbeys, a proud mining past and miles of cycle trails. Welcome to The Royal Forest of Dean, friends - where the weekends come with extraordinary natural wonder.


It's your very own Middle Earth

England’s largest oak woodland is sandwiched between the mighty Severn and the Wye River, where England meets Wales. It was once the hunting playground of Norman Kings and feels very much like it hasn’t changed much since then.

With its wild pigs, birds of prey, and tribal-spirited locals, the Royal Forest of Dean is a trailblazer by not succumbing to modern trends or fads. Instead, this enduring, moss-covered region offers simple pleasures to those who want to fill their lungs with forest air and rewild their 21st-century hearts.

A holiday in the Forest of Dean promises wild rivers, muddy trails, iconic ruins, vast woodlands, working collieries, and proud towns to explore. Roll up your sleeves, let’s get stuck in.
