Introducing our cabins in Delamere Forest 

Our collection of pet friendly hot tub lodges at Delamere Forest means you can trade your usual self-catering Cheshire breaks for a few nights in a real forest. Ramble along wide sandy paths that lead you through the famous Old Pale Trail, watch gulls and dragonflies at Blakemere Lake and look out into the Cheshire Plain on a holiday that feels extra special. 

Your cabin in the forest also boasts its very own outdoor hot tub where you can splash around after a jam-packed day or peacefully stargaze at night. Plus, Delamere Forest is home to our brand new White Willow Premium cabins. This cabin type provides an incredible alfresco setting for celebrations. Perfect for all those gloriously long summer evenings.

Keep your self-catering break in Cheshire laidback by carving out time for the simple things in life.

Discover the best places to walk in Cheshire.

If it's more unusual things to do at Delamere Forest you’re after, take a little inspiration from the latest travel trend. Human rewilding is the act of spending time in nature with the aim to restore and rebalance both body and mind. 

This could mean anything from watching a crisp morning sunrise over the treetops to gazing at butterflies dancing in an open meadow. The idea being that the more time you spend in nature, the more it integrates into your lifestyle, bringing with it a range of health benefits

The best way to rewild yourself is to start small and build up. Delamere Forest offers a beautiful setting for easing yourself into a lifestyle that feels more wild. Spend a few nights in the forest and you’ll have time to try new activities such as forest bathing (a favourite rewilding practice) and all the usual things you enjoy during your down time. A win win.
