Christmas in the forest

Your choice of 3, 4, 7 or 8 night festive Christmas breaks


Christmas time in the forest is magical. After the madness of December, slow down and enjoy the delights of a family Christmas in your luxury woodland cabin. Celebrate Christmas morning round the tree, knee-deep in wrapping paper, then head for a brisk winter walk through the silent forest, and back for turkey and all the trimmings and a wonderful family evening.

A BIG FAMILY CHRISTMAS

Bring the entire family together


Christmas is family time, but sometimes it can be a bit of a squeeze fitting everyone in. Our luxury cabins are the perfect place to bring large family groups together. Book multiple cabins at the same location and you can choose to have the cabins located next to each other, making it easier for everyone to come together on the big day.


Booking multiple cabins
For larger groups, multiple cabins can be added to your basket: just add two cabins from the same location on the same date.

A RELAXING CHRISTMAS

Let us take care of Christmas


Let us take care of Christmas this year and enjoy a relaxing getaway in luxury cabins surrounded by the winter forest. Guests staying with us over the festive period will be able to enjoy:

 

  • A real Christmas tree (complete with lights!) in your cabin from Friday 22 December and a small natural decoration crafting kit
  • Follow our Christmas trail (self-led) through the forest answering all the clues to find your prize back at the Forest Retreat
  • Children should pop into the Forest Retreat for a gift from Father Christmas!
  • Christmas entertainment; a Brass band, carollers, or pipers, and a themed quiz for charity
  • Paint your own Christmas ornament or decoration to bring out every year and remember your Forest Holiday 
  • Breaks over Christmas Day will include goodies such as prosecco, iced whisky fruitcake, mince pies, and chocolate coins! 

COSY CHRISTMAS IN LUXURY CABINS

Deep in a winter wonderland


Push open the door of your secluded cabin and know that Christmas has arrived. Your cabin is “Christmas-ready” with a traditional Christmas tree ready for you to adorn with decorations and sparkling lights. There are comfy seats for all the family, a fabulously equipped kitchen and a large dining table for that all-important Christmas dinner. When the dust has finally settled, sink into your hot tub and reflect on a fantastic Christmas.


Please remember that due to the nature of our woodland locations, fireworks and Chinese lanterns are not permitted on-site.

 

*Please also note that while we make every attempt to ensure that your stay is a peaceful one, unfortunately we cannot guarantee this with regards to any private, neighbouring residential, firework displays or activity.

Twixmas breaks in the forest

Relax and rejuvenate in the forest


After the madness of Christmas Day with your family why not escape to the forest on Boxing Day? You can check in from 4 - 8pm so no need to get up early after the big day.

 

Choose to relax and rejuvenate before the New Year or, of course, carry on the festivities with friends and family. It's the perfect time in between Christmas and New Year to go for long walks in the forest, relax in the hot tub and get cosy by the log burner in your cabin.

 

You'll need to contact our Holiday Advisors to book your 3-night Twixmas break. Call us on 03330 110 495 (Mon - Fri 8.30 - 17.30. Weekends throughout Nov 9.00 - 16.00)
