Lying just south of Cheltenham, Barber Wood is a mixture of young mixed broadleaf plantation and open limestone grassland with a rich and diverse population of species. Phased planting sees a young woodland developing at staggered ages. Fine views into the local rolling Cotswold landscape are offered. There are lots of different walking routes across the site taking in the woodland, grassland and stunning views across the Cotswold landscape.
