Car park – the Forest Centre car park is free (we do request a £1 donation) and closes promptly at the above closing times. However, the Park is accessible 24/7, 365 days a year on foot, for horse riders and cyclists.
Please note: if your car is locked in the Centre’s car park after closing time, you are free to leave it overnight and collect it the following morning. To arrange release before the car park reopens, please call 07966 000326. A £25 release fee is payable to the member of staff upon their arrival.
Access for customers with mobility problems - the half of the car park nearest to the Centre is surfaced with tarmac and the rest with rolled, loose stone. There are five wide, dedicated spaces for blue badge holders. A brick-paved surface with a maximum gradient of 1:15, connects the car park to the Forest Centre entrance, where there is a pair of double doors. The Country Park has an extensive network of mainly level surfaced paths – more information
Toilets and Baby Changing Facilities - Inside the Forest Centre there are both toilets, baby changing facilities and a disabled toilet. Our outside toilets are to the left of the Forest Centre, by the bike hire.
