Eagle's Nest Viewpoint & Wyndcliff Wood

Get directions

The Eagle’s Nest in Wyndcliff Wood is a spectacular viewpoint of the River Wye, overlooking the rocks of Wintours Leap, the Severn bridges and estuary and even the Cotswold and Mendip Hills.

The car park at Lower Wyndcliff is a good place to start your walk, although there are 365 steps to the Eagle’s Nest! If you want a longer walk, you can follow the waymarked trail to Tintern Abbey along the Wye Valley Walk.

Wyndcliffe Wood is part of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and is a superb example of a gorge woodland with ancient hanging beech and yew as well as lime, ash and hazel coppice.

Thanks to @murphyplusquinnpup for this walk!
