Facilities for the less able


Friends Mobility Bikes. High Lodge Visitor CentreHigh Lodge is fully wheel chair accessible and has fully accessible toilet facilities both in the centre and in the toilet block. Most of the walking trails around High Lodge are flat but the surfaces may be uneven. However we will be starting construction on site in Autumn 2017 of the new HLF Heritage trail. This will be a new 4.2km all-ability trail with a smooth surface suitable for those with access limitations. Benches and shelters will give ‘rest places’ and meet the needs of those with restricted health and mobility.

Access Statement

High Lodge Access statement does not contain personal opinions as to our suitability for those with access needs, but aims to accurately describe the facilities and services that we offer all our guests/visitors.

One wheelchair is available to use on site and is loaned from the High Lodge Information Point. There is also a mobility scooter for which instructions and a short briefing are provided. Contact details are requested when the equipment is loaned and it is on a 'first come, first served basis'. Please telephone 0300 067 4400 for more details.

Wheelchair Mobility Bike ready to go. High Lodge Visitor CentreFriends of Thetford Forest have been pleased to provide a range of adapted cycles for hire. These are available from Bike Art at High Lodge Forest Centre. Please telephone 01842 810090 to confirm suitability for individual needs. Also to check availability and to reserve a bicycle.
