Forest Holidays Forest of Dean

We say

Forest Holidays do wonderful holiday cabins in the woods all over the UK, and Forest of Dean is a glorious stretch of ancient oak woodland, spreading out from the Wye Valley across to the mighty River Severn. Put the two together and you have a great holiday experience, with the enchanting forest, magnificent rivers and the soaring 500-foot-high limestone outcrop that is Symonds Yat Rock, providing the setting for every conceivable outdoor activity you could think of – the perfect getaway for families, couples and groups of friends. Not only that: the cabins themselves are comfortable, on the edge of the forest in a stunning meadow - making them a luxurious sanctuary after your day’s activities. They sleep between 4 and 10, and vary from the luxurious 'Golden Oak' cabins which come with a treehouse on stilts attached to it, to the less kitted out 'Silver Birch' and 'Copper Beech' cabins. They're equipped with TV, wifi (an optional extra), fluffy robes in the en-suite (only included as a standard in the Golden Oak cabins), an outdoor hot tub (not available with the Copper Beech cabins) and a log-burning stove (only in the Golden Oak cabins). At the centre of the site the Forest Retreat hub provides a bit of civilisation with its café and bar, shop and play area, bikes for hire, and wildlife-spotting and bushcraft activities with the Forest Rangers; other activities include archery, canoeing and kayaking. You can even bring the dog if you book one of the specific pet-friendly cabins.
