2. Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire
This forest is a beautiful short-break destination. This national park has everything you could want as you can camp outside or enjoy the luxury lodges. There is a huge range of sports. Bike trails run throughout the entire woods. Treetop adventure high ropes let you traverse the tree tops with safety and ease. There is even a steam railway which you can catch for a ride through the forest and get a quick view of the scenery. Clearwater caves are another attraction to this beautiful forest. These caves are over 100 ft. deep. You can spend an afternoon exploring the caverns. Lots of wildlife and beautiful scenery make this forest a smart choice for one of the best English forests.
