Family time in the forest: what you need to know

If you’re struggling to carve out proper family time with your loved ones it may be time to ditch the bustling crowds and structured activities often associated with family holidays. Keeping things oh-so-simple is the secret to some of the best family holidays. With this in mind, here’s how you can discover calm in the heart of Britain’s most beautiful forests. 

Your home from home - on holiday

Over complicated logistics can be a nightmare to navigate for families craving downtime. With a staycation there’s no need to worry about long journeys, delays and groaning suitcases. Our cabins are already packed with everything you need to relax.

There’s also no need to worry about noise or safety. Our log cabins are totally spick and span with comfy sofas and airy kitchens. And because you’re surrounded by lush green trees there’s more than enough privacy for the entire family to rekindle their love of nature. 

In fact one of our regular guests, Joanne, says: “With a young family to think about I want the reassurance of quality accommodation and a safe environment. That’s exactly what I get with Forest Holidays.”

Easy holidays with little ones 

A family getaway should mean freedom. Not expensive onsite meals and packaged entertainment that doesn’t reflect your interests. A Forest Holiday is different because it can be exactly what you want. 

Beat long queues at attractions and explore the forest instead. Support local businesses by shopping small. Wander around beaches, parks and country lanes during quieter times. 

Go totally retro and build a woodland den with a picnic tea in hand. Or simply unwind with a family movie, pizza pack or barbecue kit. Who says you need to leave your cabin at all to have fun?

One of our recent guests, Joanne, says: “The whole set up is about keeping things natural and letting you do your own thing. My son loves animals and his happiness at seeing squirrels and deer up close is enough to make a holiday special for us.”

The best time for a family holiday

From waking up to the sound of birdsong to watching the night sky unfold before you, a Forest Holiday enables you to reconnect with nature at any time of year. All from the comfort of your secluded log cabin.

Joanne said: “I love Forest Holidays in all seasons because the cabins make it so easy - they’re so modern and big! I bring a pile of toys and with all the floor space the children are happy playing together for ages. 

“The price of the cabins is so good - we love having all the features. Especially the hot tub and barbecue on the decking. We don’t have to waste money on tickets for attractions because nature is right on our doorstep - we feel like the whole forest belongs to us because it’s so peaceful!”
