Winter holidays and breaks in the forest

Magical pre-Christmas breaks

A pre-Christmas getaway is just the thing to warm you up and recharge your batteries. With chilly nights and frosty mornings, a short break in a luxurious, cosy cabin is the perfect way to warm up with your loved ones and relax. Enjoy the beauty of the winter forest as a sprinkling of delicate snow covers the solid, frosty ground. Add the pleasure of sinking into your hot tub as the mercury hits zero, and you’ll soon agree that winter is a special time here in the forest.
