Attraction Information

There’s something special about taking a walk in The Forest of Bere.

This mixture of woodland, open space, heathland and farmland offers up a chance to enjoy, and get lost, in nature. Whether you walk or cycle the extensive network of paths there is so much to discover with streams, ponds and many different habitats.

The remaining 19th century oak and modern 20th century conifer plantations have grown together to add to the mystery and marvel of the forest, which shows off so many different face as it bathes in seasonal delights. Kick up golden leaves, feel the warmth of the sun stream through the canopy or crunch on the crisp frozen ground. Children will also love the adventure play area with its huge oak and wooden playhouses, wigwams, sandpit, climbing wall, bridge and shingle stream.

Come and play in nature’s wonderland!
