Attraction Information

Discover an enchanting ancient woodland that will amaze you at every corner. Peppered with protruding roots, meandering pathways and dramatic natural landscapes surrounding you, there is plenty of magic to be found in this atmospheric 14-acre ancient woodland. Set in the gorgeous Forest of Dean, it is the place to be for all things extraordinary. And a popular film location, whether it's a fantasy film, Sci-Fi or a family favourite film like Harry Potter.

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 on the mile of pathways ahead of you, with twisted trees, bridges, lookout points, interesting and unusual rock formations, secret caves and ancient trees... Wonder past beautiful moss-covered rocks as you walk along miles of winding pathways and take in the beauty around you.

Not only that, but you can also meet animals grazing in their paddocks including goats, donkeys, Shetland ponies, cattle, sheep, hens and ducks! Don't forget the indoor and outdoor 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. The fun never stops! 

Nature’s backdrop to your own movie all in an amazing wood!
