What is the magic of Puzzlewood?
Could it be the maze of pathways winding through the gulley’s of moss covered rocks, the twisted roots of the Yew trees or the bridges and ‘lookouts’ you can find on your way round?

Puzzlewood is an enchanting and inspirational place. It has an atmosphere quite unlike any other wood you have visited. Once in Puzzlewood it is easy to imagine that you are in a fantasy film, and that fantastic creatures lurk round every corner. Puzzlewood is used as a filming location for the BBC1 productions of Merlin, Dr Who and other TV productions. JRR Tolkien is reputed to have taken his inspiration for the fabled forests of Middle Earth from Puzzlewood, and it is easy to see why.

Also onsite are farm animals, a willow maze, a children’s playground, an indoor maze, outdoor picnic tables and a small cafe and gift shop.

The wood is not suitable for pushchairs or the less physically able due to the many uneven steps within.

For groups of 30 or more, it is possible to gain access to the wood outside of these times through prior booking. We will do our best to accommodate your requirements.
Refreshments can be provided.

Coach parties welcome by prior arrangement.
