Self-catering cottages and cabins give you the best of two worlds - a home away from home where you have the freedom to cater for fussy eaters and work to your own schedule whilst having all of the rest and relaxation you want from a country retreat.

The best part about family holidays is having quality time together so let someone else take care of the finer details so that you can focus on making memories together.

1/9 Forest Holidays, locations nationwide

Get back to nature with a stay in one of Forest Holidays’ luxurious cabins tucked away in some of the UK’s most beautiful woodland. Whether you’re after an action-packed stay making the most of all the outdoor adventures on offer (think zip wires, bike rides and canoeing) or prefer a more relaxed break enjoying time with the family, they’ve got it covered here.

Toddlers will have a great time splashing in puddles and spotting squirrels on a walk in the forest, bigger kids will love exploring and making dens, while teens will be more than happy with the Wi-Fi and hot tub. They’ve got every add on you could ever image; from practical cots, highchairs and bed guards, to kids’ activity packs, guided ranger forest walks and treats for any four-legged family you bring with you.

For the perfect night in after an adventurous day out in nature, grab some local produce to make a yummy dinner on the BBQ then get a fire roaring to keep you snuggly warm and cuddle up for the night. Or, for something a little more luxe, book a personal chef to cook up a feast in your cabin, relax with an in-cabin spa treatment then order a champagne breakfast for the next morning.
