What to do on your Forest of Dean cottage holiday
The Forest of Dean has some of the best woodlands in the world and is often used as a location for films. It was also (allegedly) an inspiration for Tolkien’s Middle Earth and you’ll definitely feel as though you’ve stepped onto the pages of a fantasy novel as you wander past twisted boughs and meander along the winding pathways. Puzzlewood, in particular, is a great place to visit with the kids, where you’ll find lots of mazes, farm animals, and picnic areas.
