The nation's forests and facilities are open, but please follow government coronavirus guidelines when planning your visit - read our coronavirus guidance.

We are sorry but you cannot BBQ in our forests at this time. This is to help support social distancing while our sites are very busy and to help prevent forest fires. 

Enjoy a tasty treat in the forest at one of our beautiful picnic areas, just bring along good food and company!  Due to current Corona virus restrictions, the decking area at the end of the Visitor Centre is currently reserved for Siskins café customers only. 

There are picnic tables and benches located along the WildPlay trail and benches are located on the walking trails at the Comb viewpoint. Picnic tables are also located in Revelin Moss and Noble Knott car parks.
