Attraction Information

Rosliston Forestry Centre lies at the heart of The National Forest, and is a woodland haven offering lots of opportunities for family fun, including outdoor activities, and a range of events throughout the year.

Rosliston's mix of woodland and meadow, ponds and play areas offer the perfect playground for visitors of all ages, all year round. Spot the wildlife, join a guided walk, follow a Nature Trail or cycle path, or take advantage of a packed programme of events, the choice is yours! Home to kestrels, owls, kingfishers and waterfowl as well as bats and butterflies during summer, Rosliston's mix of habitats means that there is always something to see.

Or if you fancy some adventure and try your hand at archery, or perhaps a spot of laser gameplay in a forest setting! Whether it's laser clay shooting, laser inflatable or combat laser in the woods, there's a real adrenaline buzz at Rosliston! Drop in sessions are held throughout the year while pre-booked group sessions are also available. Laser game sessions must be pre-booked and minimum charges apply.

Whether you want total relaxation, or pure excitement, Rosliston caters for everyone. Spot thriving wildlife, have a barbecue, go fishing, experience falconry, and more. If you want to make the fun last longer, they have forest lodges to stay in!
