Enchanting pre-Christmas breaks

Start feeling festive before the rush

For breaks Friday 20 Nov to Thursday 17 Dec: get together with loved ones and enjoy the festive season earlier with a pre-Christmas break. The winter forest at this time of year is magical and we want to make sure you can experience it all in the comfort of your cosy cabin.

  • Send letters to Father Christmas with a forest post box at every location.
  • Join in with our Christmas crafts and get creative with a range of activities: painting your own Nutcracker or creating your own Christmas card.
  • Head out on a self-led trail.
  • Visit the local area! There are plenty of festive attractions, surrounding each of our Forest Holidays locations, including Christmas markets and ice skating.

With the forest transformed into a winter woodland with lanterns and lights for a festive feel, start your Christmas in the forest and add a real Christmas tree to your booking to make it extra magical.

Romantic winter breaks

Escape to a cosy woodland cabin this winter. Whether you want to explore beautiful snow covered forest or relax and warm up in front of the log burner, a winter holiday with your loved one provides the perfect opportunity for you both to get away from it all. Enjoy the magic of the winter forest and choose to be as relaxed or adventurous as you desire, with in-cabin spa treatments or adventure activities for two. After a day of adventure and exploration, retreat back to your cosy cabin for a dip in your hot tub, a perfect, soothing treat for a crisp winter day! A range of luxury cabins are available for couples, including the incredible Golden Oak Hideaway or our one-bedroom Golden Oak. Let the magic of the winter forest relax and rejuvenate you.
