A family holiday in the forest

Last updated 14th June 2017

Enchanting Escapes

The forest is a magical place for little ones, and it’s pretty special for adults too. With Forest Holidays, you and the kids can stay in luxury cabins set in nine locations across the UK, all on Forestry Commission land. Forest Holidays are obviously ideal for summer, but they are also a great choice for May, when there are two bank holidays and a half term, giving you the perfect opportunity to take a break while beating the summer rush.

Choose from Thorpe Forest on the Norfolk/Suffolk borders, Blackwood Forest in Hampshire, Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire, Deerpark in Cornwall, Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, Cropton or Keldy in North Yorkshire, and Argyll or Strathyre in Scotland.


Staying in a forest invites the kids to enjoy a rare sense of freedom as they explore the woodland in safety. You can take off for the day, breaking up your excursion with a picnic, or lunch at a quirky village pub. You can hire bikes from all the Forest Holidays locations and the knowledgeable rangers are bursting with advice about the best walking and cycle trails to suit your family.

Become a forest ranger

At the heart of a Forest Holiday experience is the chance to hang out with and learn from expert Forest Rangers. And it’s not just for kids! Forest Rangers teach grown-ups and kids the secrets of the forest in a hands-on way. From daytime woodland activities, to twilight walks and nightie expeditions, you’ll immerse yourself in the forest and come to understand why the rangers boast of having the best job in the world.

From tots to teens

A forest stay is a great choice for teens, especially at that difficult age when they’re craving freedom, but toddlers and babies are also welcome. You can even pre-book high chars and cots for your cabin, so no need to turn up with everything but the kitchen sink! But don’t forget to bring the pooch, as many of the cabins are pet-friendly.

Book now and look forward to sunny days of den building, long balmy evenings sitting out on deck beneath the trees and relaxing under the stars in your hot tub after the sun goes down.
