Welcome to the Sandlings Forest Visitors Home page
This page is provided to help you to appreciate how you can enjoy a visit to the Sandlings Forest (i.e. Dunwich, Tunstall and Rendlesham Forests) which is located near the beautiful Suffolk coast. The Forest is managed by the Forestry Commission.
The Sandlings Forest is a public forest. A place where you can go walking, running, cycling, bird-watching, dog-exercising, tree-spotting, camping, tracking, orienteering, horse riding, carriage driving . or, if you dare, look for UFOs... Or you can just wander at your leisure, sit and enjoy the natural surroundings.
