The perfect place to stop for a picnic within the Forest of Dean!
Wenchford is a beautiful spot nestled deep within the forest with plenty of picnic tables and an easy access path
Blackpool Brook 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 toilet facilities are 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.
