Attraction Information

Every corner of High Lodge has something just waiting to be discovered, the more you walk around the forest, the more you’ll find. From beautiful forest trails to Go Ape forest adventure in the treetops, there's lots to explore at High Lodge Forest. 
Things to do
High Lodge in Thetford Forest is a smashing example of wood as it should be, with numerous play areas, things to discover, walking and cycling trails, and loads of opportunities for exercise and adventure!

High Lodge Thetford Forest Centre also has an outstanding nature play area for the kids where your little explorers will be sliding, climbing and balancing for hours. The tiniest sprogs can have fun safely at their specially designed Toddler Tower. Why not try out one of the magical Woodland trails on your next family adventure?

Have you heard about the NEW Zog Trail? Grab your activity packs for £4 and download the free app to follow clues and collect golden stars. Will you make it to the end? 

Feeling really adventurous today? Why don’t you plan an extra activity - take on the Go Ape high ropes course, try your hand at archery, or explore the forest via segway? 

You'll have the perfect family day out packed with so many adventurous activities from the high ropes to magnificent walking trails and cycling for families on the epic cycle tracks. 
 Food & Drink
Those beautiful trails have kept you busy exploring for long enough and now you're feeling a bit peckish. Head over to the High Lodge Cafe for some delicious grub! Tuck into steaming hot jacket potatoes and full English breakfasts. Treat yourself to a slice of homemade cake and sip on cups of tea. There are plenty of food and drink options, both hot and cold. 

The cafe is surrounded by natural beauty so you'll have no qualms about relaxing! If you wish to be outdoors then set up camp in the forest. You can enjoy picnics and BBQs
