A popular picnic site with picnic tables, an easy access path and a paddling area
The perfect place to stop for a picnic within the Forest of Dean!
Wenchford includes Blackpool Brook which trickles through the site under the dappled shade of the large oak trees. The paddling area is the perfect place to cool down in the hot summer months.
The facilities including the cafe and toilets are generally open from April until the end of October. Parking charges only apply during this time.
If you are planning a picnic at Wenchford, please make sure you take your litter home with you and recycle where possible. Open fires, portable/disposable BBQs or camping stoves are not allowed. The only way to barbecue in the forest is to hire one of our barbecue sites at Beechenhurst.
