We have a large landscaped car park with good access to the visitor centre area. This is supplemented with larger surrounding car parks that are used for events and weekends.
Easy Access Parking Spaces are located within the main car park next to the main access paths.
Coach Parking is also available for visiting groups and schools.
Please contact the Forest Office if you are intending on bringing a coach group, as space is limited at peak periods.
Our toilet block is located between Go Ape and the Café and is open year round. Each Toilet has baby changing facilities.
If you are hungry or thirsty after your forest adventure why not call in the Café for some refreshment. Open year round for fresh and seasonal food and drink.
Our aim is to keep Sherwood Pines opne for customers to enjoy as normal. However if we close the Forest it is for the following reasons
1: Significant risk of injury to visitors
2: Significant risk of being trapped in the Forest
3: We are unable to provide adequate cover for the facilities and services.
