Could it be the maze of pathways winding through the gulleys of mossy rocks, the twisted roots of the yew trees or the bridges, lookouts and other things you can find on your way round?
Puzzlewood is a unique and enchanting place, located in the beautiful and historic Forest of Dean. Explore a mile of meandering pathways, with its fantastic tree and rock formations, through this 14 acre ancient woodland. It has an atmosphere quite unlike any other wood you have visited. JRR Tolkien is reputed to have taken his inspiration for the fabled forests of Middle Earth from Puzzlewood, and it's easy to see why.
As well as the woods we have lots of animals, a willow maze, indoor mazes and a toddler racing track, an outdoor playground, plenty of picnic benches, a cafe and gift shop with lots of local crafts. Puzzlewood is used regularly as a filming location and received fantastic reviews from various publications.
Come along and discover the magic and if you have a great time, why not either upgrade to an annual pass or stay in one of our cottages onsite.
You could easily pick Puzzlewood up and place it nicely into any Hollywood blockbuster such as 'Lord of the Rings' Harry Potter or the like. Never before have I been to such a place that can both amaze you and make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end all that the same time. As I was been shown around this enchanting place, I could of literally been walking around middle earth for all I knew. I think this attraction is great for kids but yet just as amazing for adults. I found Puzzlewood to be great value for money and the staff are so friendly, and with ample car parking and a great cafe coupled with the fact that you can stay here for as long as you see fit, there really isn't anything to complain about! Oh wait actually there is, it's not open 24 hours!
