This area is perfect for walking. We spent three days exploring the area. Be sure to take packed lunch and drinks you can walk for miles without seeing anyone. Spectacular views.

Relaxing holiday in the Forest of Dean and next door Wye Valley getting away from it all. Lots of Peace & Quiet in the Woods and Valley. All in all a good holiday destination - off the beaten track!
