Stretching the length of the railway line from Rookwood to Oakiron, it takes about 15 minutes to walk from one end to the other. Our woods come alive during the spring, especially when the bluebells and wild garlic appear, (in April/May usually). The ground turns into a sea of blue, lilac and white and it looks and smells absolutely stunning. You can smell the wild garlic in the air. It makes for some really lovely pictures too. Autumn is another stunning time of year in the Forest of Dean and our site offers no exception to this. We refer to it as ‘the forest in the fall.’ The leaves turn to orange and red as they fall from the treetops, lining the paths with many different colours. During the winter months the paths can get very slippery, so sturdy foot wear is recommended. The woods are not wheelchair accessible and can be difficult for lightweight strollers. In high winds and heavy snow fall we will shut the woods for safety reasons.
