Frequently asked questions

What is a staycation? 

The word staycation is a blend between stay and vacation, in literal terms a stay-at-home vacation, a holiday where you stay close to home and enjoy the activities and attractions the UK has to offer. Previously, a vacation staycation involved driving to a place a little further from home for a day trip, but in today's world it's a break taken over a course of days that doesn't involve flying to another country. 

How many parking spaces are there per cabin?

Each cabin has parking for at least 2 cars. Golden Oak Treehouse cabins have 3 spaces. Please note, depending on location, not all parking spaces will be directly outside your cabin. Additional cars can be parked at the Forest Retreat.
