Puzzlewood is a magical and very ancient Forest of Dean woodland and is packed with natural history but may also be better known to you as a film location for major UK series and Hollywood blockbusters including the latest Star Wars. Humble by Nature is the brainchild of TV presenter Kate Humble and is in a superb rural location on a beautiful Monmouthshire farm. Forest Holidays in the Forest of Dean is a national company offering luxurious forest retreat cabins at their Forest of Dean site. We offer 2 and 4 hour courses on their site.
