Lydford Forest

Lydford Forest

Be enchanted by beautiful woodland

Right on the edge of the famous Dartmoor National Park, you can explore Lydford Forest.

Located in the picture-perfect valley of the River Lyd, there's an abundance of beautiful views and wildlife, including some of the rarest butterflies in the UK.

With open paths and trails for you to explore, there’s also plenty of new flowers and plants that you'd rarely see in your own back garden.

Pause and take a deep breath

We all love a moment of tranquility, surrounded by wildlife, nature, and our own thoughts as we take a deep breath of the fresh air, filled with the scent of blossoming flowers and mossy trees.

The forest provides the perfect escape after a busy week.

Perhaps you’re looking to visit on your own and want to soak up the silence that woodlands offer? Or maybe you’re bringing the whole family in an attempt to reconnect and leave the technology at home.

One thing's for sure - everyone will love this beauty spot. Even the dogs will enjoy running through the woodland, exploring all the exciting paths and smells they find.

Worked up an appetite?

After all that exploring, basking in the sun that peeks through the branches, your tummy might start to rumble.

There’s a picnic area which you’ll be eagerly looking out for on your walk as you take the opportunity to sit down, relax and take in the surrounding scenery and peacefulness.

Tuck into those delicious sandwiches and homemade cakes and sip on your piping hot coffee or ice-cold water as you enjoy the sounds of the forest.

The drive back home will be another time for reflection as kids and four-legged friends will be using this time as a chance to sleep, exhausted from their day of adventures.

Your new favourite beauty spot

Pack up that picnic, grab your comfortable shoes and waterproofs, and head to Lydford Forest.

You're bound to fall in love with the fresh air and beautiful landscapes, which will most definitely become a regular place for you to visit.
