Forest of 'Teen' & the Wye Valley

While planet-saving, device-dependent teens are often the hardest to please, get it right and family holidays can be 100% fun. From canoeing to caving, climbing and footgolf, to paintball, paddleboarding and even pottery, few places offer more awesome adventures for angsty adolescents than the brilliant Forest of Dean & Wye Valley. Thanks to easy access for so many via the M5 and M4 motorways and the recent abolition of the Severn Bridge tolls, there’s never been a better time for everyone to enjoy a staycation in this special corner of the UK where England and Wales meet. And you’ll have everyone swapping Facebook for falcons and headphones for harnesses before you can say I’m starving, Mum.
