Forest Holidays


Forest Holidays have 9 wonderful locations across the UK, where you stay in beautiful Forestry Commission woodland, relaxing in the tranquility of the trees.  Staying in modern, wooden lodges, well equipped and very comfortable, with private decks and hot tubs, you cannot fail to unwind.  For the active amongst you, walking, cycling and a range of other activities are on offer too. Our prize winner this month will enjoy a holiday for up to 4 people in a superb Silver Birch cabin at a location of their choice, for a Monday to Friday break. 

Our particular favourite location this year is Thorpe Forest in Norfolk lies in leafy woodland on the banks of the River Thet, near the Suffolk border. Choose to stay within the forest, a delicate patchwork of pines, heathland and broadleaf trees, or in a delightful open glade.  The local area offers an array of attractions, from the mystical beauty of the Norfolk Broads to the medieval charms of Bury St Edmunds.

    I'd never considered Forest Holidays but looking at what they offer (and hoping for some Great British Sun) then this is a real option.

    Just spent a fabulous weekend with our friends celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary, they were in a Log cabin on a peaceful farm Campsite, was really jealous of their wonderful venue in the cabin as we were on the ordinary camp field , would like to give it whirl, what a delightful way to enjoy the countryside in luxury accomodation.
