Extras and activities in the forest

An escape to the forest gives you the opportunity to get active, immerse yourself in nature and indulge in a little luxury too. Whether your ideal holiday is an action-packed adventure or laid-back relaxation, our activities and extras have something for you.
Forest Ranger adventures

Discover the secret life of the forest

If you plan only one activity on your Forest Holiday, make it a Forest Ranger adventure. Our Forest Rangers know the forest like the backs of their hands. Their enthusiasm is hard to resist and you can’t fail to be swept along as you learn about the animals and plants, explore the forest at night, learn the essentials of outdoor survival or take your children on a Mini Forest Ranger adventure.

Walking and hiking holidays

Step out into the best UK walks

Our forest locations are situated in some of the most picturesque corners of the UK, perfect for walking and hiking holidays. From the rugged coastline of Cornwall to the snow-capped mountains of Scotland, each of our locations has something unique to offer. And, from gentle forest trails to challenging climbs with glorious views, there are walks and hikes to suit everyone.

Cycling holidays

Explore on two wheels

If you are looking for a base for your cycling holiday, how about a cabin in the woods. You can pre-book your cycle hire and we have put together a selection of cycle trails for each of our locations, which include short trails, ideal for families, long distance routes for experienced cyclists and technical challenges for off-road MTB enthusiasts. After a day’s strenuous cycling, you can soothe away your aches and pains in your own private outdoor hot tub.

Adventure holidays

Set your pulse racing

Ready for an adventure? Whether it’s flying down a zip wire at Keldy or testing your aim at archery in Sherwood Forest, your adventure holiday starts here.  As well as our on-site activities, we have partnered with some of the best adventure companies in the UK to bring you river canoeing, off-road driving, clay pigeon shooting and many more high-adrenaline sports and adventures. 

Forest Bathing Experience

A natural wellbeing therapy

Forest Bathing simply means immersing yourself in a forest setting. It is a natural way to calm your senses in a busy world. It reconnects you to the forested planet that we as humans grew up in and, in doing so, imparts you with a profound sense of peace.

Try Forest Bathing for yourself and see what you think. At Forest Holidays, we have embraced the concept and we lead Forest Bathing experiences at Blackwood Forest and Thorpe Forest.

In-Cabin Spa

Relax, unwind, and be pampered

Relax completely with a soothing massage, expert beauty treatment, or other luxury spa treatment, in the comfort of your own cabin. Your fully qualified therapist will make sure you feel pampered and special. Whether you're treating yourself and your friends, unwinding after an action-packed day, enjoying some special time with your partner, or a mother-to-be; there is a treatment package that will match your wishes.
