Rosliston Forestry Centre has been designed for visitors with a variety of different accessibility needs.
The Centre itself offers Free Parking for Disabled Blue Badge Holders and around half of the site’s surface paths are fully accessible for wheelchair users. Other pathways are comprised of grass or gravel.
Mobility Scooters and Wheelchairs are available for day visitors to use throughout your visit, free-of-charge although we do ask for users to donate a voluntary contribution for their use.
Ramps and railings can be found at all building entrances such as the Cafe, Shop and Play Areas and all buildings feature widened doorways for ease of access for wheelchair users.
Mobility Scooters are regretfully not permitted in The Hub Cafe for public safety reasons and we respectfully invite scooter users to use one of our free-to-use wheelchairs visiting the Cafe, if required.
Disabled toilet facilities can be found in the Main Building including wheelchair-accessible toilets, a wetroom shower and an Adult Changing Bed with hoist.
Our Childrens’ Play Areas are wheelchair-accessible and also feature specialist play equipment suitable for use by disabled guests. Specific equipment includes a roundabout, a swing, a slide and a trampoline.
If you choose to extend your visit to Rosliston, our luxurious Forest Lodges have been specifically designed to accommodate wheelchair users.
All of our lodges feature lowered kitchen worktops, pull cord lightswitches, accessible wetrooms, shower chairs, toilets and sinks and ramps for ease of access. Our larger lodges also feature electric beds with adjustable head and foot positions.
A range of specialist equipment is also available to hire for an additional fee as required. Specialist care equipment includes a hospital bed with hoist and commodes. See our Accessible Accommodation page for more details.
