Summer holidays & breaks in the forest

Make the forest your summer sanctuary

Surround yourself with summertime forest

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy family holidays, breaks for couples, and groups - where memories can be made that will last a lifetime. Tree climbing, hiring bikes, picnics, barbecues, archery... then enjoy your own private hot tub at the end of the day. Spending the school summer holidays in the forest means that there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

A family holiday to remember

Summer holidays with kids

From toddlers to teenagers, parents to grandparents, our family breaks offer the perfect time to escape with your loved ones, whether you enjoy weekend breaks or a week-long holiday. Reconnect with the people who matter most to you during your summer holidays in the UK. 

With a wide range of things to do in summer, including Forest Ranger activities, you can be sure that there is something to keep the whole family entertained.

If you're looking for a more relaxing break, enjoy a choice of over 100 box office films and wi-fi with our in-cabin entertainment package (subject to availability).

This summer, we have created more ways for kids to reconnect with nature and spend time outdoors! Our new summer activities allow children to explore the outdoors with Chester's Squirrel Squad​ - suitable for adventures aged 4 - 8. Children aged 8+, may be interested in The Wild Ones, an all-day adventure led by our Forest Rangers.​ Available on breaks in England and Wales between 10 July 2020 to 28 August 2020 and Scotland between 3 July 2020 to 14 August 2020​.


Summer romance

With woodland cabins for two, including the romantic Golden Oak Hideaway or our one-bedroom Golden Oak - you and your loved one can hide away on a memorable break in the forest this summer.

Choose to be as relaxed or adventurous as you desire, with our In Cabin Spa or adventure activities for two. After a day exploring and discovering the local area together, retreat back to your cosy cabin. Enjoy a barbecue out on the decking followed by a soothing dip in your very own hot tub.

Make your summer break extra special with a range of luxurious extras including Champagne and Chocolates or treat your loved one to a fresh bouquet of flowers with Floral Flamboyance! Let the tranquil forest work it's magic on you...

Group getaways

Thinking about hosting a gathering with family or friends, or maybe a trip with an educational or special interest group? Whoever you travel with, the summer forest provides the perfect backdrop for your group retreat.

Join us in the Forest Retreat

The Forest Retreat is the place to meet, eat, drink and try some fresh local produce; and it's at the heart of our locations. Enjoy tea or freshly brewed coffee, breakfast, lunch, and dinner options (including our famous burger!*) in our comfortable seating area, and if the sun is shining, enjoy a drink out on the decking area!

If you fancy a relaxing night in the cabin pick up a delicious ready meal from our Cook food range and simply heat up in the oven. Or order a pizza night pack or curry night pack to be delivered straight your cabin!
