About the Forest of Dean The Forest of Dean is England’s first national park and largest oak woodland. Protected by laws from as early back as 1066, this is one of England’s largest crown forests, second only to the New Forest.
Over the course of its long history, the forest has been protected as hunting grounds and governed by the accompanying laws. In a similar fashion to the New Forest, commoners rights have been distributed and administered by Verderers. Now, sheep freely graze the land, wild boars roam and deer grace visitors with their presence.
It is, however, perhaps the forest’s geographical formations and history that best define this special area. It is composed of the Wye Valley – an area of outstanding natural beauty – the Vale of Leadon, a quintessential area around the town of Newent, the Severn Vale and of course the royal forest itself.
The result is a plethora of landscapes, adorned with wildlife, beautiful woodland glades and tranquil scenes at the water’s edge. It’s easy to see why Forest of Dean holidays come highly recommended.
