Forest news


We’re delighted to announce that Forest Holidays’ Blackwood Forest team were double award winners at the 2016 Beautiful South Awards.

The team picked up the silver award in both the Self Catering Holiday Provider of the Year and Dog Friendly Business of the Year categories.

Held at the Hilton at The Ageas Bowl and hosted by TV presenter Toby Anstis, the awards celebrated the best in tourism across the South East.

Judges were impressed by our Blackwood Forest location, calling it "Magical. Other worldly" and "A great place for the dogs to explore. A seventh heaven."

Bruce McKendrick, Chief Executive Officer at Forest Holidays, said: ‘We are delighted to have won two silver awards confirming us as not only one of the top self-catering providers but also one of the best dog friendly businesses in the South East.

“Our breaks allow you to relax or be as active as you like in a wonderful forest setting. Everyone at Forest Holidays is dedicated to making sure our customers have a great holiday experience, connecting with both nature and the local community, and it is wonderful to gain this recognition. In addition we understand that being able to take your pet on holiday is important and so at Forest Holidays we ensure that dogs enjoy their holiday just as much as their owners!”
