Our Stunning Home
Epping Forest in the south-east of England and is situated between the borders of north-east London and Essex.
A magnificent ancient woodland and former Royal Forest, Epping Forest is now managed by the City of London Corporation. This is at no cost to the taxpayer. At the most southern Epping Forest touches Forest Gate and continues for 12 miles to Epping. This consists of rivers, heathland, grasslands and, of course, woodland.
The forest is elevated along a ridge between two rivers, the River Roding and the River Lea and has so much to offer.
High Beach, OurFabulousForest Setting Since 1887
High Beach sits in the southern section of the glorious Epping Forest, close to the city of London and Hertforshire borders, with excellent transport links including the M25 and train stations close by.
The Corporation of London looks after over 20 miles of surfaced trails and in excess of 6,000 acres of forest.
Obviously, this gives the visitor a huge amount of choice to visit and take advantage of the facilities. You can stroll and, of course, run. In fact, many marathon runners use Epping Forest trails to train for their distance running.
With the most beautiful scenery, including many lakes, Epping Forest is a must visit if you live in Essex, London or Hertfordshire.
If you decide to visit our beautiful forest home, don’t be a stranger, drop into the Kings Oak Hotel and visit our superb GASTRO PUB.
The forest is open access, which means that you can either follow one of the nine-way-marked trails or get adventurous and strike out off the beaten track.
Access For All
Many of the Epping Forest surfaced paths are suitable for visitors with disabilities.
There are four dedicated easy access paths at High Beach, Connaught Water, Knighton Wood and Jubilee Pond.
