May holidays & half term breaks in the forest

Watch the forest come to life as the beauty and wonder of summer approaches.

May half term

Witness the beauty of spring-time in the Forest

May is a great time to get the family together for a Forest Holiday. Book a break in the May half-term and beat the rush of the summer holidays. Enjoy sunny days pond dipping with the kids, long evenings out on the patio beneath the trees, and sitting under the stars in your hot tub when the sun goes down. The forest is an ideal place to get away from everything and relax before the long summer days arrive.

Explore the forest

Walking or biking

Enjoy a rare sense of freedom as you explore the forest, far and wide. Take off for the day, breaking up the exertions with a woodland picnic or lunch at a quaint village pub, and return tired and happy for a long soak in your hot tub. Bike hire is available at all of our locations and our team will be only too happy to help by advising on suitable walking and cycling trails.

Forest Ranger activities

They're not just for kids

Take this opportunity to open your senses to the forest around you. Our Forest Rangers will teach adults and children alike the secrets of the forest first-hand. From days filled with fun activities for children of all ages, to twilight walks and night expeditions for everyone and not just the kids, you will begin to understand why our Forest Rangers believe they have the best job in the world.

Archery and shooting

Aim to master age-old skills

Lose yourself in concentrated effort, and experience the thrill that comes when you hit the target.
 Where better to test your archery skills than Sherwood Forest, the home of Robin Hood, or at Keldy or Cropton on the wild North York Moors.

Available at:

Thorpe Forest, Keldy, Cropton, Sherwood Forest, Deerpark, Blackwood Forest, Ardgartan Argyll, Strathyre and the Forest of Dean
