About Us

Rosliston Forestry Centre lies at the heart of The National Forest, a woodland haven offering outdoor activities, holiday accommodation, family fun and all-year round events.

This Derbyshire attraction is home to kestrels, owls and kingfishers as well as bats and butterflies in summer, while Rosliston's mix of woodland, fishing lake, walks, cycle routes - plus cycle hire- and play areas is tailor-made for a great family day out.

But there's even more. Forest lodges provide luxury holiday accommodation, including accessible disabled holidays, while the opportunity for room and venue hire means Rosliston is just perfect for weddings and buisness meetings too.

A partnership between The Forestry Commission, The National Forest Company and South Derbyshire District Council, our story began with the planting of 120,000 trees between 1993 and 1997, creating a young woodland intertwined with the more mature trees in the hedgerows and Fox Covert.

Rosliston is a living forest just waiting to be explored. Discover more by clicking the links below.
