The Whitestone picnic and play area offers visitors the opportunity to relax in beautiful surroundings with barbecue facilities and a unique children’s play area. 

Beautiful mature Oak and Beech woodland with large Douglas Fir and other mixed broadleaves. Bargain Wood lies adjacent to a section of the famous Wye Valley Walk. Visitors to the site can enjoy pleasant walks that take in a number of fantastic views across the Wye Valley.

Woodland walks lead from the picnic area where there are seats over looking the Wye.  The seats are inscribed with phrases from Wordsworths poem "Lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey".
