Halloween breaks

Halloween activities

Fun for all the family!

We love Halloween here at Forest Holidays and this year we are treating you with a free pumpkin and carving kit for every cabin! Whether you are travelling with the kids or fancy being a kid yourself, Halloween in the forest, at any one of our ten locations, has plenty of fun to sink your fangs into.

  • Get creative and have a go at designing and carving your own Halloween pumpkin with a free pumpkin and carving kit for every cabin. 
  • Journey through the forest under a canopy of stars, and delight in sweet marshmallows as you listen to stories of myths and legends from our Forest Ranger.
  • After a day of exploring, enjoy a Halloween party in the Forest Retreat.
  • New for 2020 join in our interactive treasure hunt.

Halloween breaks from Friday 16 October to Friday 30 October.

Myths and Legends walk

Experience the magic of a forest at night with a self-led Halloween walk. Follow a forest trail to a twilight campfire where our Forest Ranger waits with marshmallows to roast and mysterious tales of local myths and legends. Wrap up warm or come dressed in your spookiest outfit for an unforgettable evening listening to stories under the night sky. 

This activity is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes long.
Campfire will be safely managed by the Forest Ranger.
Fancy dress is welcome but please select costumes with fire safety in mind.

Hocus Pocus treasure hunt

Make your way through wand training, broomstick challenges, and puzzles to find magical clue cards to complete the treasure hunt. Perfect for family groups with mini witches and wizards.

Halloween

Deep in the woods…

With the summer holidays a fond but distant memory, and Christmas not approaching quickly enough, Halloween is a perfect excuse for you and your family to indulge in a well-earned break.

Nowhere is a better backdrop to your Halloween break than the forest; tell each other stories under the forest canopy or delight a movie with the in-cabin entertainment package. Quality family time has never been so magical!

Forest Ranger

Explore the forest…

There is plenty to do as a family right on the doorstep of your home away from home! Dress up in your costumes and join one of our Forest Rangers on a Mini Forest Rangers session, perfect for little ones looking to learn more about the wonders of nature and creatures of the forest!

Or venture out with the Forest Ranger on a Nocturnal Adventure, listening to the sounds of the nighttime and keeping an eye out for bats too! 

After a busy day exploring, return to the luxury of your hot tub and relax in the bubbling water, underneath the pale moonlight.

October half term

A Halloween special!

At Forest Holidays we understand the importance of quality family time and so we’re here to help you make the most of your half term break. As the nights get shorter, and freshly fallen autumn leaves crunch underfoot, cosy up in your cabin with the whole family. Enjoy watching your surroundings transform as the most colourful season of the year takes a hold.

There are plenty of activities and attractions, surrounding each of our Forest Holidays locations, to keep the kids entertained. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit some of Britain’s haunted heritage cities, such as York, as a special Halloween treat! Don’t be afraid to try something new this year and make memories that will last a lifetime!

A Halloween to remember

Room for little witches and wizards

There’s plenty of room for a Halloween gathering with a difference. Book multiple cabins together to accommodate your group, whatever the size. Or treat yourselves to a stay in the Golden Oak Treehouse, which sleeps up to 10 people comfortably. After fun in the woods, shut the door on the chilly autumn night and gather for Halloween games and stories around the wood burning stove.
