A seasonal adventure in the Forest of Dean.

Come and try out different outdoor activity challenges in a safe environment including low ropes, crate stack, climbing and tunnelling. We will go out for a Christmas meal on Saturday evening and, on our return Father Christmas has promised to visit. We will round off the weekend off with a seasonal buffet on Sunday lunchtime!

This year there will be exciting opportunities to make a range of wonderful Christmas crafts to embellish your home using sustainable materials.
