What should I pack?

All our cabins are fully equipped, which should help to make your packing easier. View our inventory to see what's included in your cabin.

Here are some helpful things to remember for your holiday:

  • Clothing (bring clothing suitable for a woodland environment)
  • Walking shoes/boots/wellies
  • Toiletries
  • Food (bring any food you want for your stay, if you forget anything you'll find essentials in the Forest Retreat)
  • Camera (the best way to take home memories of your holiday)
  • Charging cables (for mobiles, sat navs, tablets, or games console)
  • Swimwear (or the hot tub)
  • Torch (essential as we keep lighting to a minimum at night)
  • Towels (towels are included, you will also find hot tub towels in our Golden Oak cabin)
  • Kitchenware (you may wish to bring essentials like foil, cling film & kitchen roll)

Seasonal tips


A picnic rug, hamper, and ice-block to keep your lunch fresh is essential. You may also choose to bring insect repellent for when you’re taking a forest walk and sun cream for when you’re relaxing on a forest glade!


Layering: lots of layers, gloves, and a hat are perfect for a forest walk or bike ride. Just make sure your gloves and boots aren't too tight and try not to wear too many pairs of socks as restricting blood flow to your hands and feet will make it even harder to get them warm. Wool is the way forward: When cotton gets wet it loses its insulating qualities. Opt for wool or synthetic materials to keep warm.
