Walkers, joggers, cyclists and horse riders can access the Forest directly from the Cottage and will discover many miles of paths, greenways, trails and disused railway tracks meandering and crisscrossing the ancient woodlands, copses, streams and brooks.


Off road and family cycles can be rented a few miles away (see Peddlebikeaway below), with access to Waymarked trails and more extreme tracks. Walk or cycle 'The Sculpture Trail' or to places of interest such as 'New Fancy' & 'Foxes Bridge'.

The River Wye is accessed from the end of the lane, providing a huge range of activities for paddlers, swimmers, canoeists, rafters and picturesque walks along The Wye Valley to Symonds Yat and beyond.  You can hire canoes from 'Wye Pursuits' or have a thrilling time in the treetops at 'Go Ape' (see links below). Go deep underground at Clearwell Caves, jump on a Steam Train or seek out one of the many disused railway tracks, mines and tunnels that are hidden around the Forest. 

Serious adventurers should try 'Go Ape' or drive a short distance to Chepstow for the National Diving and Activity Centre; home of one of the longest zip wires in the country and a host of other thrilling activities.
