News & Events

Opening Hours Kiosk / Main Gate -  Current summer opening times are 10.00 – 16.30 for gate and Elgins/Shell House car parks and 10.00 - 17.00 for the shop . But always worth it checking the NT website for further updates in case of adverse weather conditions - we need to preserve the beautiful Forest. Please ring the office if you want to purchase a day pass in advance, just in case.  It is best to avoid busy holiday times, weekends.  And strictly adhere to the rides available on the map.

Ride ResponsiblyThe Forest is wet at the moment. Please remember that the wet rides marked on the map are currently too wet for horses even after the dry spell we had.  Some horses have been riding along the perimeter of the Forest and predictably sinking in the mud and damaging the ride. It may be that these are not permit holders.  Please let the Estate Office know - in confidence - if you know who they are.
