Wakerley picnic bench

Great Hockham is the perfect place for an exciting outdoor adventure in a beautiful woodland setting.

A visit to Great Hockham will treat you with views of the unique landscape. See if you can spot the distinctive features, known as pingos, that were formed during the last Ice Age! 

Come and enjoy a picnic in the forest, walk amongst the trees on a choice of two waymarked trails or treat your four-legged friend to a forest visit. 

 

Sun bathing

The magnificent beeches lining the A134 at this site provide the setting for one of the most attractive picnic spots within the forest.

The splendour of the beech canopy affords an atmosphere of peace and tranquility.

An open area next to the car park gives opportunities for those wishing to picnic or play during their stay. Here, heather and grasses add a splash of colour and interest for insects such as butterflies and bees, reminiscent of the former Breckland heaths.

Snowdrops in the forest

The Little Ouse Valley between Brandon and Thetford has been designated a Forest Nature Reserve by Forestry England in recognition of its importance to wildlife.

Sunrise in a conifer forest

A patchwork of pines, heathland and broadleaves provide the ideal setting for a great day out, and a welcome refuge for a rich variety of animal and plant life.

18,730 hectares to explore

The forest covers a huge area with many different places to visit, offering a range attractions from the exciting outdoor play facilities at High Lodge to the history and heritage of Mildenhall Warren and Lynford Arboretum and the peace and tranquility of the walks around Santon Downham.
