Welcome to Rosliston Forestry Centre

1 July 2020

Rosliston Forestry Centre is open again following the easing of government guidelines.  Our car park is open and normal charges are reinstated.  If you would like to purchase an Annual Car Park Pass for £35, please download the application form here.  The form includes information on how to pay by direct transfer and then we will send your pass to you in the post.

We have opened some of our toilets but other buildings, the café and the shop remain closed for now.

This is to protect our staff and members of the public.  We will provide more information when the centre can reopen as soon as possible.

Rosliston Forest Lodge Accommodation:

We are working hard to get all of our lodges ready for you in line with government and industry guidance and hope to have these all approved soon.

If you have an existing booking we will contact you directly to discuss it as the date approaches with options for postponement or a credit note valid to December 2021 if our plans aren’t approved in time for your break.  Please be patient with us.  We will get to you and are working through bookings in date order.

If you would like to make a new booking into the future or have an enquiry contact us on enquiries@roslistonforestrycentre.co.uk.

Our team are working hard behind the scenes to keep things ticking over.  You can find updates on the Rosliston Facebook page or email us if your query is not covered here.
