Sneak off and start the new year hunkered down in the heart of the forest. Sip your morning coffee surrounded by birdsong and ease yourself into a refreshing staycation that ticks all the boxes.
Let time slow down in nature. Relax in secluded simplicity, just the two of you with a cosy log burner and private outdoor hot tub.
Your home from home nestled in the forest. Fire up the barbecue for a winter feast then curl up on the sofa and unwind completely.
Get together with friends and family for an authentic forest experience with an additional bedroom across a rope bridge.
Let the forest take you a world away from the everyday. To a world of stargazing, snowball fights and celebrations with friends and family. Make it extra special with a welcome hamper, sparkling brunches and long soaks in the hot tub.
Whether you’re searching for cosy get-togethers by the log burner or epic adventures in the great outdoors, discover a world of timeless winter magic on long weekend breaks in January.
Top the Winter Lights with a tasty treat, for a limited time only. Pre-book and save 15% on a posh dog, fries and drink, or yummy hot waffle with Kelly’s ice cream. End the evening with your mini-feast in the Forest Retreat, or grab and go for a meal under the stars. Winter Warmers are available at Blackwood Forest and Forest of Dean.
Snuggle up, stay cosy and curl up next to your log burner. Pre-book your starter kit and we’ll make sure there’s wood stocked up in your cabin ready for your arrival.
Uncover the best winter routes and trails, as well as tips on how to get there. We’ve included a torch as we run a ‘dark skies’ policy on our locations.
A marathon of movies. Sweet treats at your fingertips. On your squashy sofa. Dramatic forest views. Winter evenings don’t get much better.
Take a wintery walk on our mini woodland trail
Step into a sparkling corner of the forest, alight with twinkling lights and woodland animals. Under the moonlit sky, there’s no better place to find your festive #ForestFeeling. Back this year at Blackwood Forest and new to the Forest of Dean for 2023.
