Love this place. I have a 6 & 9 year old and we have been visiting here for a few years now. We always take our bikes and they have great bike trails for different abilities. Great main play area and great smaller ones located around the forest to break up a bike ride or walk. Good clean facilities.

I absolutely love it here! Second time visiting and there is always so so much to do! Kids always enjoy their day and never want to leave! Really fun and can’t wait to go back again! Carpark is always full and yet so many quite places to walk! Only downside is how expensive the parking is but I think there is a deal if you go before 11am!

We decided on a last minute visit to High Lodge In Thetford forest and had a lovely time tracking through the trees 🌳 Den making and searching for bugs and beasts. There is a lot of activities there, Go Ape , Segway trail , Archery and plenty of parks to play on. We had so much fun and I would recommend this for a day out 👍👍

We adore this place. The whole setup is well thought out, and there is so much space that loads of people can be here but not get in each other’s way. You don’t need cash, and you can get food and drink here but are welcome to bring your own picnic. There are lots of picnic tables and BBQ areas, just don’t bring your own BBQ. Not sue if you have to book the BBQ areas as the had padlocks on, this may be because it was out of season when we visited.
Lots of things for kids to do, from really young to really old!
