Outside Deorfrith Lodge

Behing the building is a small grassed area which has its own external electricity sockets and can be floodlit. This is suitable for pitching a small number of tents, a barbeque, or simply as a secure space to get a little fresh air.

The nearby recreation ground (owned by the parish council) is only a couple of minutes walk and provides football pitches, a basketball net, skateboard pipe and play areas for both younger and older age groups.

It is a great place for young people to let off a little steam!

From Deorfrith Lodge itself it is possible to walk directly into the open forest and we can provide some suggested routes suitable for any age group / distance on request.

During the week it may be possible to use the additional football club parking in addition to the limited parking spaces at the lodge itself.
