Description |

Thetford Forest sits on the border between south Norfolk and north Suffolk. It's one of those (unfortunately) rare but rather wondrous spaces of trees, green and outside. A space that smells in equal measure of flowers, leaves and mud. A glorious space with adventure at every turn, where children become explorers and botanists, geologists and biologists; and where adults become a puddle of relaxation in a devil-may-care attitude.

These are the playgrounds of modern times, my friend. A place to savour. A place to disappear in and re-appear hours later with mud on your shoes, twigs in your hair and a humming tune on your lips. Welcome to forests!
