Venue type: Outdoor

Choose one of 4 family-friendly walking trails and begin your next family adventure at Beechenhurst in the beautiful Forest of Dean. Looking for a crowd pleaser? Follow the famous Sculpture Trail to see astonishing artworks scattered amongst the trees. Want fun for the little ones? Take the A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon Glow Trail*!

The wooden play equipment at Beechenhurst always goes down a storm with the kids. While your little adventurers are going for a ride on the pit pony, or swinging in the air on the giant birds nest swing, you can set up at the picnic tables by the zip wire. Speaking of zip wires, there’s a Go Ape venue on-site, if you fancy a treetop adventure!  

Another favourite is the 40-metre climbing tower. Even the adults love this one! Want to do even more? Summon your inner Robin Hood and have a go at archery. It seems like the family fun never stops at Beechenhurst!
