Food and drink

When your tummy starts to rumble…

Enjoy time to just be

A holiday is your chance to step away from the routine of day-to-day. Let us entertain you. We want you to enjoy that sense of relaxation from the moment you step inside your cabin. Let your holiday begin from the moment you arrive in the forest by pre-ordering a welcome hamper or fresh fruit and vegetable box from us. You’ll have all the essentials for a relaxing break in the forest, surrounded by nothing but birdsong.

In our Forest Retreat

The Forest Retreat is at the heart of every Forest Holiday. Buy locally sourced food and drink. Enjoy a bite to eat or a drink with a view of the forest. Pop down to the Forest Retreat where food is available throughout the day. Decide between classic breakfast dishes, light lunches, evening meals and delicious desserts.

At the Forest Retreat, you'll also meet our friendly team. They're the people in-the-know when it comes to nearby beauty spots, restaurants, pubs and local gems waiting to be uncovered.
