For Norfolk walks step from your cabin and explore the local area with one of our recommended self-led trails which you can pick up from the Forest Retreat.
Thetford Forest is the UK’s largest man-made lowland forest, with acres of wildlife-rich woodland to explore. For walks in Thetford Forest, start from High Lodge Visitor Centre on one of the themed trails. The Pine Trail and the Nature Trail are just 1.6km long and the Beech Trail and the Fir Trail are 4.8km. There is also an orienteering course and the delightful Sculpture Trail, a short, wheelchair accessible, 1.6km walk with five play sculptures along the way.
With so many Thetford Forest walking trails to choose from, you'll be spoilt for choice. This pleasant 9km riverside walk starts in Thetford town and follows the Little Ouse Path to Brandon. The walk takes you along peaceful stretches of river, into the heart of Thetford Forest and through the pretty forest village of Santon Downham. The area around you is the Brecks, a unique heathland landscape created by the practices of Stone Age farmers.
