Booking information

Updated 5th November 2019

Booking is essential for guided and self-guided visits to High Lodge. 


To make a booking please contact Kim Newman for a booking form and return this in advance of the visit to confirm your booking.

Pre-payment in advance of your visit can be done by cheque, payable to Forestry England, or by card over the phone.

Contact Kim Newman on e-mail kim.newman@forestryengland.uk or call 0300 067 4400 for more information or advice.


Advance booking is essential if large numbers of maps are required. Packs are £1.50 each if pre-ordered in quantities of greater than 10.

Groups wishing to use the orienteering course are asked to call 0300 067 4400 in advance, as forestry operations may prevent some parts of the course being available for public use at certain times.    


We encourage self-led group leaders to arrange a pre-visit to assist in their risk assessment writing and to gather any other useful information. A meeting with a Ranger to discuss options can be booked in advance if required. All pre-visits are free of charge.
