Find Yourself in the Forest

We all need a break - the chance to escape from the pressures of everyday life, slow down a bit and spend quality time with our family and friends.

Research has shown that time spent surrounded by nature can help both our mental and physical well-being. That’s why Forest Holidays go the extra mile to create the perfect escape in the heart of beautiful British woodlands.

Take the time to relax

Life can quickly pass us by and the weeks fly past with many of us struggling to remember what happened from one day to the next. An escape to the forest slows you down, encouraging everyone to relax, live in the moment and allow nature to melt away the stresses of normal life.

Stress is a real concern in the modern world and we all know that it can lead to both mental and physical issues. Learning how to properly relax on a regular basis is critical if you want to strike that work-life balance. Your immune system will benefit as the hormones responsible for stress diminish, replaced by endorphins; the happy hormone!

By simply being – taking time to notice the trees, taking a woodland walk, marvelling at the ever-changing views or simply curling up on a comfy sofa in front of a wood-burner with a book - all wonderful ways to give your brain and your body some much-needed down time.

All of our cabins provide the perfect woodland retreat and are luxuriously appointed with hot tubs and all the comforts of home – even our tree houses. Some have BBQs and log burners and dogs are welcome in most of our accommodation.

Make time for each other

Whether you’re five or 75, forests are magical places for the whole family - perfect for reconnecting with everyone and having the time to talk – and the time to listen. Create those unforgettable memories on your forest adventure at one of our 10 locations – all of which have so much to keep you occupied - whether you choose to fly down a zipwire at Keldy, try gorge scrambling in Ardgartan in Argyll or canoe down the River Wye in the Forest of Dean.
