Meet Santa Claus at Puzzlewood

Forest of Dean

Enjoy winter walks in Puzzlewood’s magical woods and meet Santa Claus himself in his grotto.

Look out for the handmade reindeer as you explore these magical woods, and inside the grotto the kids will get to meet jolly Santa and his cheeky elves; let them know how many you've spotted and their names. Santa loves to receive all the children’s letters, so bring them with you and remember to tell him what you would like for Christmas. He might ask you if you've been good, and if you have, you will receive a small gift.

This year Puzzlewood's amazing tree surgeons have made their own, very special, 18ft Christmas tree using fallen branches from inside Puzzlewood with handmade stockings by local craft makers. There will also be free Christmas workshops making natural angels and forest fairies.
