SCHOOL HOLIDAYS IN THE FOREST

Carefree days and family fun


Remember the summer holidays of your childhood? Playing outside from dawn 'til dusk, climbing trees, building dens, enjoying endless games. Your holiday in the forest will recreate that magic for your own children.  You can relax and unwind while they enjoy the freedom of the forest. Plan your days to suit your mood; take day trips, have adventures, do nothing. Ultimately, spend time simply enjoying the company of your family.

HALF-TERM HOLIDAYS IN THE FOREST

School’s out for a week – enjoy it!


The half term holidays give you a fantastic opportunity to sneak in an extra break in the forest. Come for a weekend, a midweek break or for a full week. Banish the winter blues in February, get ahead of the crowds in May, or have a late, last blast in the autumn.  It’s a chance to reconnect with your children and with the great outdoors.
