"Exploring Puzzlewood is like stepping into a fantasy world. Set in 14 acres of woodland in the Forest of Dean, this unique natural landscape is a labyrinth of paths and eerie passageways that take you through ravines of deeply-fissured moss-covered rocks, across beautifully crafted wooden bridges and past enormous ancient trees.
With its uncanny resemblance to the fabled landscape of Middle Earth described in JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, it’s no surprise to learn that the author was a regular visitor to Puzzlewood. Not only did the woodland inspire Tolkien’s fantasy tales, it has also recently been used as a filming location for BBC productions of both Merlin and Doctor Who. Away from Puzzlewood’s showbiz stature as a prime filming location, the woodland is a spectacular place for a peaceful walk."
