No other forest on earth evokes the atmosphere of a medieval hunting forest so completely. The ancient trees of the forest are like magnificent living sculptures, peaceful giants worn and fragile from centuries of seasons and use. Some of their extraordinary ancient trees are 1,200 years old! Just imagine what these trees have lived through and the stories they could tell.
Whether you want somewhere for the children to run off energy, somewhere you can run to keep fit, or somewhere to walk where you can quietly reflect, you will find your own special place somewhere in Hatfield Forest.
Tracker Packs and trail guides, Batricar and all-terrain pushchair available to help you explore the site.

We live very close and have a national trust membership so go around once a week for a walk and explore. The cafe is lovely and serves gluten free chips that my son can share with us on our walk :). So much to explore and we can't wait for the summer when we can grab a picnic an ball to take some friends and enjoy a long day climbing trees.
