A great place for the whole family to start a Forest of Dean adventure
Beechenhurst lies in the heart of the Forest of Dean, one of Britain's oldest and largest woodlands.
It is the ideal place for families to start their forest adventure, with a family activity trail, Sculpture Trail, play area and Go Ape Tree Top Adventure. You can even bring your bikes and access the wider forest on our Family Cycle Trail.
Don't forget to refuel in the café or bring your own food to enjoy in our beautiful picnic area. We also have bookable barbecues if you fancy cooking your own family feast.
