Five fabulous things to see and do at Cwmcarn Forest

Jul 29, 2021

1. Book a luxury camping experience

If you’re not quite ready for the vigour’s of camping, but fancy some outdoor living, why not try something a little more luxurious?

Kitted out for the ultimate luxury camping experience, feel far away from the stresses and strains of everyday life, but return to the home comforts of the beautifully furnished lodges and glamping pods.

2. Explore the woodland walks

With immediate access to stunning surroundings and wildlife, explore the challenging hill climbs of Twmbarlwm or take a leisurely stroll around the forest and valley floor, Cwmcarn Forest has some of the best walking trails in Wales.

 3. Bran and the bees

Legend has it, a battle took place between the wasps and the bees over a horde of hidden treasure, rumoured to be buried underneath the iron age hill fort of Twmbarlwm.

The treasure, belonging to ‘Bran the Blessed’ is protected by a swarm of bees and guards Bran’s final resting place.  Awaken the local legends and immerse yourself with the impressive sculptures and new interpretation.

 4. Enjoy a hearty breakfast

Tuck into their famous breakfast or grab yourself a quick cuppa from Raven’s Café, located inside the Cwmcarn Forest Visitor Centre.

 5. Forest Drive

With three new play areas, sensory tunnels and a woodland sculpture trail, the highly anticipated reopening of the 7-mile long Forest Drive is an attraction not to be missed.
