Forest Holidays at Blackwood Forest has a resident Forest Ranger. An expert in the local wildlife who is ready and eager to share their woodland skills and the secrets of the forest with you. Stalk through the night time forest trying to spot elusive animals, discover where the wild garlic grows or how to brew a pine needle tea. Your Forest Ranger will bring the forest alive for you.
