Private woodland

Private Woodland

It is very flat here at The Thomas Centre which means that everyone (including wheelchair users) can enjoy our woodland walks.

Not quite the “100 acre wood”, but some of our guests have affectionately christened our four acre wood as the “4 acre autistic wood”!

The reason for this title: all the trees are in perfectly straight lines!

Our private wood allows you and your party to enjoy the tranquillity and privacy of lovely woodland walks and to enjoy the countryside with your own nature trails.

We share our woods with families of pigeons and rabbits, pheasants, partridges, sparrow hawks, barn and tawny owls and the occasional fox.

There is always a lot to see and hear in the woods, especially in the evening when all the wildlife is settling down for the night.

Pedal Go Carts and Track

Another popular facility is our Go Cart track. Equiped with adult sized Go Carts (pedal powered) and this is great fun for the whole family.

The track is 100 metres long and it gets very competitive out there!

It also gets used for for people to practice riding bicycles on, often for the first time.


We also have a small selection of bicycles which visitors are welcome to use during their stay.

With all the safe open spaces and drive ways, we are pleased to have seen many young people learn to ride for the first time during their holiday at The Thomas Centre.
