Our awards

We are proud to have won a number of awards at all of our nine locations. These achievements reflect our commitment to ensuring excellence, not only for our guests, but for the surrounding forest and its inhabitants who call our locations home.


Best eco/sustainable holiday for families

At Forest Holidays our commitment to protecting and enhancing the forest is second to none, so we are thrilled to have been rewarded for our natural ethos having been named ‘best eco/sustainable holiday for families’ at the 2016 Family Traveller Awards!
Forest Holidays was recognised for its bespoke cabin concept, which minimises impact on the forest and its inhabitants, as well as its commitment to connecting people, nature and local communities.
