Here small lake or beech available?

This Saturday will be open?

Aly, 22/Dec/2016

Yes, The cycle centre is open this Saturday but there is no lake or beach. There is a small lake at nearby Cannop Ponds.

We cycled on the family trail and cannot fault the trail at all. Unfortunately when we got back down at app 2pm and tried to buy food it was all sold out. This really put a downer on what would have been a brilliant day out.Would have thought weekends would be busy times therefore catered for accordingly

I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your cycling but sorry to hear of your disappointment with food availability at the café - we will advise the café tenant of your comments. I have not heard of this happening before, thank you for letting us know.

Cant find a postcode on your website to put in my satnav - always frustrating on websites when this is not there as most people would require this these days who are unfamiliar with the location. Unless its there but I just cant see it?

Postcode for Satnav?, 11/Aug/2016

The postcode is GL16 7EH.

Wow what a fantastic place!! First time experiencing the trails and it certainly won't be the last!! Even the treasure trail was a massive hit not just for our children! Can't wait to come back soon

Our first visit to the Forest of Dean and well worth the trip, only 3:50 for all day parking, well maintained and sign posted trails of various grades, great cafe/shop with friendly staff in such a great setting.. met loads of people out and you even provided sunshine all day.. SUPERB

would like to thank Forestry Guys(Uncle Albert)and ambulance service for help getting injured friend off the hill. Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly looking after some old blokes that should know better.
