Out & about...
Glamping in Bracelands isn’t all about the forest. After a day of Robin Hood-style tomfoolery, head towards the River Wye and keep your eyes peeled for watersports centres. In addition to canoe or kayak hire, you’ll find plenty of other outdoorsy experiences. Try your hand at archery, go caving inside Symonds Yat Rock, or test your balance on a high and low ropes course.
Just over the Welsh border from the Camping in the Forest site is lovely Monmouth, a little town with a big history. Swing by the crumbling ruins of Monmouth Castle, walk over the gated Monnow Bridge - the only one of its kind remaining in Britain, and take a picnic up to The Kymin, an 18th century round house and naval temple. The views over the valley are well worth the hike.
