Our unique location
Our unique location on the Blackdown Hills
We are set in a forest clearing which has remained unchanged for at least 100 years. We are also on the Blackdown Hills, an area which was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1981. We think the location of Forest Glade is pretty special and due to our unique location there is lots to see and do in and around the park!
Forest Glade is surrounded by 300 acres of Pine Forest and offers the perfect environment to enjoy a peaceful, relaxing holiday or short break.
If you love the great outdoors there is plenty for you to enjoy at Forest Glade! Including our self-guided nature walk around the park, wildlife spotting opportunities, forest walks and stargazing!
There are many walking trails of varying distances, which are accessible from the park.
