Ancient woodland - a rare surviving example of a medieval royal hunting forest. Of great historical and ecological importance, Hatfield Forest is a designated SSSI and National Nature Reserve.

The pollarded hornbeams and oaks support a wide variety of wildlife and there are many excellent walks and nature trails, as well as fishing in the lake.

During summer cattle graze in the forest.
