Children's play area - adventurous facilities for all the family

Please note that the pyramid tower, giant swing, maypole and see-saw are currently closed.

High Lodge is famous for its free adventurous play facilities which are great for kids of any age looking for an adventure in the forest. 

From the Gruffallo, sand play area for toddlers, helter-skelter tunnel slide, to our den building area it is easy for everyone to spend a fun day out playing in the woods. Kids can make their own music in the Sound Trail, play on giant swings, seesaws and pyramids or climb up into the Treehouse to hide out in the canopy. Only their imagination will be the limit to the fun they can have out in the woods even if it is a rainy day and the only thing to do is get muddy splashing in puddles! 

Alternatively, try playing on the outdoor table tennis tables, or bring a football for a kick about in the main grass clearing.
