Haresfield Beacon comprises a hill standing at just over 190 metres within a 0.73-hectare geological Site of Special Scientific Interest. You can find this natural site in Gloucestershire.
When arriving at the scenic site, you’ll be pleased to find a small visitor car park at Shortwood. An additional space can also be found further along the road; wherever you choose to park there is a £3 fee. If you’re a National Trust member, parking’s free!
Dogs are more than welcome here, with bins provided for any waste. Please be aware of the livestock grazing nearby.
The views at the top of Haresfield Beacon are astonishing, consisting of the Severn estuary, Brecon Beacons and the Forest of Dean. A woodland, Standish Wood, also rests close by, offering even more beautiful sights, including bluebells and beech trees.
You can embark on two trails from Haresfield Beacon, including the renowned Cotswold Way and the Haresfield Beacon trail. Alternatively, why not kick back and relax with a picnic here?
