We’re committed to providing a more inclusive visitor experience for those that may have additional needs, creating adventures that are accessible to everyone that ventures to Walesby Forest. 


Over the years, we have worked hard to modify both our facilities and activities to offer a more inclusive environment for our visitors. Guests of all ages and abilities will be able to find an activity that will give them the opportunity to learn and develop through adventure.

Find out more about what we offer below. 


Facilities to meet your needs

We want everyone to be able to enjoy their time at Walesby, from daytime activities to staying overnight. We currently have a wheelchair-accessible lodge with an adapted bathroom, and for those camping, we have a separate toilet and shower. Moving forward our goal is to secure funding to build a changing places facility on site, with one in the camp centre and another by the lake.


Passionate about inclusion

We have been working with Portland College to develop our understanding of creating inclusive experiences for our guests. Our apprentices and activity staff are undertaking training to improve their skills and knowledge about how they can best support visitors with additional needs and create a fun and accessible environment for everyone. 


Accessible activities

Fresh air, having fun, learning new skills and gaining confidence are vital for all individuals. Many of the activities available on-site can be adjusted so guests of all abilities can enjoy their time. Some of these activities are:

  • Archery
  • Tomahawk throwing
  • Team building
  • Frisbee golf
  • Air rifle shooting
  • Bushcraft
  • Circus skills
  • Giant catapult


We are working hard to offer accessible adaptations for the whole breadth of our activity programme, and will continue to develop our facilities over time to ensure that all of our visitors can experience the magic of Walesby Forest.


A note from Guy Laurie, CEO at Walesby Forest


“My mum is a part-time wheelchair user as she has an artificial leg, and I remember once she gave me some really good advice. She said ‘It’s not for you to dictate what I can do’. This mantra has stuck with me ever since and has been key to informing how Walesby Forest will evolve for those with any kind of physical or mental disability,” 

“We are still on a journey with making the site and its activities fully accessible. We are hoping that with additional funding for our lake project, we will be able to add canoeing and kayaking to the list of accessible activities, with the aim of all of our activities eventually available to all in the near future.”
