King Arthur's Cave
Know before you go
Parking informationThere is a small pull-in are at the top of the reserve with space for three or four cars.
The reserve consists of a strip of land on either side of a track leading down to King Arthur's Cave. The caves themselves are not part of the reserve. Access is straightforward, and the main track leads on beyond the reserve into woodland managed by the Forestry Comission which links with both the Wye Valley Walk and other footpaths within Lord's Wood. If you continue further along the path beyond the cave you will come to Seven Sisters Rocks with views up and down the river.
This site is not suitable for those with limited mobility as paths are unsurfaced.

About the reserve
This reserve lies on either side of the track leading to King Arthur's Cave. The strip to the northwest of the track is part of an ancient woodland. The part of the reserve to the east of the track has a different history, with a cottage standing here in 1847; however the area became an industrial site in the middle of the 20th century. This has now become colonised by willow and birch. King Arthur's Cave is part of The Doward Living Landscape.
