I moved down to the forest of Dean 3 years ago from north east England. I have been blessed to have the opportunity to have guests come to stay and they have loved my tours and walks of the area. I have had to adapt my tours based on different ages and physical fitness. Even the locals are coming with me.now. I am eager to learn and explore everything around here so why not come along with me and let's see what we can discover together. It also helps that I have dogs to walk at the same time and they are not scared of the boar or deer that we encounter regular on my walks.

Where you'll be

From a multitude of different walks within the forest of Dean that are not the normal tourist routes to twilight walks to see if we can spot deer and boar. I am flexible to your needs and what you would like to see

Great experience, didn’t see Boars but saw many signs of them being around, and we now know what to look out for. We saw a fox clearly at dust, and lots of deer by torch. The walk was magical in the Forest, this gave my husband and I more confidence to go off in the Forest by ourselves in the late evening and listen for sounds of the Boar, with no look again.

It was lovely to spend two hours in the Forest of Dean just enjoying the vibe, foraging, and looking for animals. Jennifer is warm and friendly and we never worried about getting lost. It was a little rainy, and we wouldn't have gone out if we hadn't been booked to do so, but we had a lovely time.

Jennifer is knowledgeable, friendly and down to earth. She looked after us and gave us a great experience. Seeing the wild boar was a highlight of the walk, but we learned a lot about the area during the evening. It was a pleasure!

We had a great hike through the forest. We spotted several boar on multiple occasions and even a couple of deer. Jennifer provided some history about how the boar came to be in the forest.

A great experience. We saw boar several times. We could also hear them as they moved about. The forest was magic and alive, and the light was lovely in the late afternoon. Jennifer was a great guide and made it all possible for us. She knows the forest well and looked after us.
