Forest Of Dean The Forest of Dean is one of England's few remaining ancient forests, covering over 110 square kilometres of woodland. It lies between the rivers Wye and Severn, in the western part of Gloucestershire, and on the borders of Wales and Herefordshire.

The Forest is one of the most distinctive areas of Britain having a seductive charm and character that is uniquely its own. The stunning landscapes and spectacular scenery have inspired artists, craftspeople, inventors, poets and playwrights, as well as the many visitors who return year after year.

There is so much to see and do in the Forest of Dean! With such a spectacular range of natural beauty, outdoor leisure activities, family attractions, plus a whole host of events and festivals, the Forest of Dean is the perfect place for a holiday or short break getaway, at any time of year.

Clearwell Caves The Forest of Dean is made up of four quite different landscape areas:

The Royal Forest lies at the very heart of the district with the market towns of Coleford and Cinderford offering an insight into the industrial heritage and history of this fascinating area.

The Wye Valley is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and forms the western border of the Forest, separating England from Wales. This unique area offers endless opportunities for outdoor activities such as canoeing and fishing on what is perhaps Britain's most unspoilt major river.

The Vale of Leadon is a quintessentially unspoilt English area featuring rolling farmland, vineyards and black and white timbered buildings centred around the picturesque town of Newent in the northern part of the district.

Lydney Harbour The Severn Vale, through which flows the country's longest river, is famous for its tidal bore, Blaisdon Plums and Perry Pears. The old Severnside port of Lydney is the area's main town, and is a thriving business and shopping area.
