The Forest of Dean covers 110 square kilometres of woodland, bordering England and South Wales. Little forest towns and villages such as Cinderford, Coleford, Lydney and the better-known Ross-on-Wye contain a desirable collection of beautifully appointed holiday cottages available throughout the year. Explore by foot or bike the deep forests that rise from the River Wye, or invest in a Forest of Dean canoe hire and try your skills at kayaking along the picturesque river, which is possibly the best way to enjoy this beautiful countryside. For the more adventurous, why not try the Go-Ape high-ropes course and see the forest from a birds-eye perspective? There is some serious cycling on offer for those daring cyclists who fancy taking on the more difficult downhill forest terrain, and for those who prefer their thrills on the water, you take a white-water rafting trip down the River Wye.
