  • We came with our 3yr old and 7wk old for the last day of the fairy village. She had great fun and loved the fairies and model villages. It's all a bit bizarre but I think that makes it even more fun 
  • Definately worth the walk through the wood, the yew trees are extremely old but I couldn't tell you how old as no information available nor map. The place was definately spoilt by all the Ken & Barbie...  read more »
  • We took our grandchildren to the Secret Forest on a beautiful first day of September. Having read the few mixed reviews we were not sure what to expect. On arrival we found no one at the entrance and ...  read more »
  • A wonderful morning enjoying this magical place. This little treasure is well worth a visit for both children and adults. It is run by volunteers, and they have a 15 year lease on this land. It would be such a shame to see this beatiful spot sold off for any other use. Really lovely people, wonderful tea rooms and an iron age village to visit too. It's a wonderful place to see nature at it's best.
  • This was free to go in with the ticket from visiting Clearwell Caves which is opposite it. Only £3 an adult anyway to enter. If unmanned (as run by volunteers) there is an honesty box to put your money in. It is a beautiful walk through the woods looking at natural things. Don't expect to go and be entertained by fair rides,plastic models etc, this is a natural place for people to enjoy /ppreicate the peace and quiet and the countryside. I can not wait to take my boys as they will love it, especially as they have good imaginations. There is a tea rom but was not open as they had just taken over site and was in process of cleaning it, not a problem. Also composting toilets there. There were some iron age huts, they were rebuilding one when we went, very nice, friendly people there, also lady making carvings out of wood with a chainsaw! it was not muddy as they had spent a lot of time marking and laying pathways through the wood, I think it is possible to get a pushchair through it, just a couple of hilly paths. Good tearoom at Clearwell Caves opposite (caves worth a visit, both sites all natural and not manufactured for comercial profit)
