After a break of more than twenty years you can now hire a boat to row on the lake.
Boat hire is available from Easter on Sat and Sun and then daily in the school holidays, from 10.00 to 16.30. A maximum of four are allowed in a boat, but no dogs. Boats can not be reserved. The cost is £8 for 30 min.
Enjoy a pleasant cycle along the woodland paths
There's nothing better on a lovely sunny day than getting out on a bicycle and exploring the many different tracks through this most ancient of Forests. Hire a bike from us or bring your own.
With over 1,000 acres and miles of grassy track there's no excuse for not getting a little lost in the quieter parts of the Forest. Nearby to the Forest is The Flitch Way which is flat and mostly traffic free.
We have a wide range of adult and children’s bikes, trailers, tag-alongs and child seats available to hire. The cost is £6.00 for adult bikes and £4 for childrens bikes, for 2 hours. Helmets are included in the hire price. A deposit and photo-ID will be required.
Bike hire will be available during the summer season, on Wed to Sun and then daily in the school holidays, from 11.00 to 16.00.
Reservations can be made on 07825 761 020.
