Thetford Forest

Thetford Forest

Explore, have fun and relax at Thetford Forest

Hear the crunch of pine needles and twigs under your feet as you head of down one of the walking routes at High Lodge, Thetford Forest.

As the sunlight shines down on the wood, the sound of the tall trees rustle in the breeze. The quietness of the Beech trail route will give you time with your thoughts as you take in the beautiful sights for the next three miles.

Looking for something a little more fast-paced? Hire a bike and see the forest from a different point of view as you wind down trails that snake around the trees.

Or why not have the most incredible time as you get involved with Back to Wilderness at High Lodge? Learn how to survive in the wild, using only sticks to light your fire.

If getting back to basics isn't for you, tuck into a warm takeaway espresso from the cafe instead as you continue your adventure through the forest.

An easy path for everyone

If you're in a wheelchair or you're bringing a buggy, the Lynford Arboretum Easy Access Trail offers a smooth route for you to enjoy.

See if you can hear the sound of the ticking tap of a woodpecker as you rest at one of the seating areas, with scented spring flowers or the burnt orange colours of autumn leaves to guide your way.

Food and sunshine - the perfect combination

After all that exploring, enjoy a lovely meal at St Helen's Picnic Site, open all year round.

Listen to the river flowing beside you as you tuck into a tasty homemade sausage sandwich, all washed down with a cold soft drink.

Escape the city noise and stay overnight on the forest site

Looking for a relaxing break?

Head to a spotless, spacious, and super comfortable overnight stay at Thetford's Forest Holidays site. Wake up every morning with the sound of birds singing and the magical Harling Forest just a few steps away from your door.

We can't think of anything much better than that.
