Picnic Sites and Viewpoints in or near Tintern


Description

This medieval hunting park covering over 300ha survives intact as the Forest Commission’s Chepstow Park Wood. The wood is 7 km north-west of Chepstow Castle and was originally used by the Lords of the castle in the 13th and 14th Centuries as a hunting forest.

Chepstow Park is a large block of woodland with both mature broadleaf and conifer species. A network of footpaths will lead you into the heart of the wood where you can walk for miles without seeing another sole. Viewpoints along the south-eastern edge of the wood allow you to see far across the Bristol Channel with both the old and new Severn Bridges clearly visible. Along the western edge of the wood you will come across panoramic views of the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons National Park
