Forest Holidays is one of many commercial partners who work with Forestry England, providing a reliable and long-term income stream and supporting the delivery of environmental, social and economic benefits. Created by the Forestry Commission over forty years ago, Forest Holidays now successfully operates in ten locations across the UK including five in National Parks, bringing widespread benefits to local economies. Delamere will be our 11th location and we have a long term commitment to support the management of trails and the woodland environment around our location, as well as generating an annual revenue for Forestry England, helping to support the sustainability of the vision for Delamere Forest into the future.
Whilst our Forestry England partners are working with Wilmott Dixon on the central Visitor Hub components of the plan, our experienced team will be concentrating on the cabin location. Detailed project plans guide the build of a new Forest Holidays location. The programme at Delamere combines woodland and wildlife management as well as landscaping, with the integration of our cabins into the environment.

Our cabins are designed to sit harmoniously within the forest, preserving the surroundings. We follow strict management practices that promote sustainability and respect the environment. A summary of our approach to building can be found here:

Together with our Forestry England partners we’ve answered some of the common questions we have been asked about the project so far and will continue to update and add to the questions as the project progresses.
