Forest of Dean Events Summer 2017 – What to do on your Forest of Dean Summer Holidays
It is almost that time of the year, well, for some of us that are lucky to be going to the Royal Forest of Dean in beautiful Gloucestershire, that is.
I don’t know about you, but I suspect you are no different, the countdown to your summer holidays starts on January the 1st and then just drags, or it seems to.
The great thing about booking a lodge in the Forest of Dean is that it is such a versatile type of holiday.
You have the people who love the great outdoors, they come to the forest just to be there, to observe mother nature first hand. Others are part of a club or have a hobby interest in the outdoors, such as bird watching,
RSPB Forest of Dean
The RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) has a fantastic reserve set in the heartlands of the Forest of Dean, you can visit and see some of the most beautiful species to be seen anywhere in Europe.
RSPB has some excellent summer events that will be of great interest to the bird watcher and anyone interested in mother nature and all things wild.
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds is a charitable organisation registered in England and Wales and in Scotland. It was founded as the Plumage League in 1889 by Emily Williamson. (Wikipedia)
Other Forest Activities
Ramblers, walkers, joggers, artists, cyclists and many more people head for the forest for their summer holidays because it is a beautiful place to be and, having booked one of our self catering forest lodges, they have the freedom to enjoy their hobby to the full.
There is, of course, many hosted events, some of them rural, others sporting and artistic. There are many festivals throughout the summer and autumn months such as the Mitcheldean Fete and Folk festival on the 14th of July 2017.
For the music lovers, there is the Coleford Music Festival and many more events to keep you occupied and interested.
Dining out is also an option and there are many places to for a great meal or simply have a quiet drink and enjoy your break.
Then there is the “do nothing” option; relax in your Forest of Dean Lodge and just enjoy the time away from the hustle and bustle of the rat race.
Have you booked your summer break in the Forest of Dean? If not I would do so rather quickly.
