Wood fires are permitted within the forest from 1 May to 31 October each year.
Gas fires are permitted from 1 April to 30 November.
Fireplaces should be cleared of all flammable material for a distance of 4 metres. Someone must be always present and ensure that the fire is fully extinguished before leaving.
