About Puzzlewood

Discover an enchanting ancient forest that will amaze you at every corner. Peppered with geological features that are stupendously impressive. Like protruding and twisted roots, meandering pathways and dramatic natural landscapes surrounding you, there is plenty of magic to be found in this atmospheric 14-acre magical forest!

Set in the gorgeous Forest of Dean, it is the place to be for all things extraordinary. And a popular filming location, whether it's a fantasy film, Sci-Fi or a family favourite film like Harry Potter. It's an ancient woodland worth visiting!

About Puzzlewood
The magical place has been an inspiration for many authors and has featured in many films and TV shows! Such as The Secret Garden, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Doctor Who, Merlin, The Huntsman: Winter's War and so many more. So, if you're a fan of any of these famous feature films, you have to visit (maybe in costume...if you're feeling adventurous enough!).

With so many weird and wonderful areas in Puzzlewood, you won't get bored and the kids will have so much to explore. Enjoy some walking with forest trails, on the mile of pathways ahead of you, with twisted trees, bridges, lookout points, interesting and unusual rock formations, secret caves and ancient trees...

Wander past beautiful moss-covered rocks as you walk along miles of winding pathways and take in the beauty around you and along the forest floor.

More Things To Do...
Not only that, but you can also meet farm animals grazing in their paddocks including goats, donkeys, Shetland ponies, cattle, sheep, hens and ducks! With a collection of animals to visit, your kids will have an enchanting time in the magical woods and outside too!

Don't forget the maze of pathways winding in and around in the outdoor and indoor mazes too, which add to the sense of adventure with secret doors, hidden animal pictures and endless twists and turns! The play area is also a good place for children to blow off steam and where parents can relax, entertaining children is the forte. The fun never stops!

Food & Drink
If you're feeling hungry, pop along to the Puzzlewood Cafe for tasty baguettes, sandwiches and lots of your favourite snacks.
Children's lunchboxes are also available, with sandwiches, crisps, chocolate and drink.

Don't forget to grab your souvenir at the gift shop!
