National Forest


Coalville is right in the heart of the National Forest.

The National Forest is 200 square miles of a vibrant and varied landscape that takes in ancient and newly planted forest, wildflower meadows and rugged, rocky uplands. You’ll find reminders of the region’s industrial heritage, atmospheric castles and mighty manor houses, bluebell woods and country parks home to herds of deer.

There is plenty of things to see and do and ways to explore the great outdoors:

  • Walking
  • Cycling
  • Fishing
  • Forest experiences
  • Golf
  • Horse riding
  • Survival skills and woodland crafts
  • Watersports
  • Wildlife spotting
