Holiday in FOD

My wife has booked a short break for the family in Coleford and I was wondering what are the chances of seeing wild boar.
We are coming down in August so I can appreciate the undergrowth will be up but are there any hot spots we are likely to find any.

We saw Boar at Cannop ponds , there are nice parking and BBQ areas there. We stayed till dark and saw some but beware they lock the gate at 10 and we got locked in! Luckily I was driving a Land Cruiser and it required a sh*t or bust bit of off roading to get out or we would have had to stay the night there.

Take thermal with you, if you don't have some borrow it . It will improve your chances a hell of a lot. You can then just cruise around of an evening and spot them.

Go to the Speech house hotel, not far from Coleford/Cinderford area, late evening there all along the road,
you will be amazed how many there are if you have a Thermal spotter

Forgot to say if you fancy a breakfast on the way down, try the Seven & wye Smokery at Chaxhill, near Westbury-on -seven,
Absolutely fantastic place.
