With cosy cabins split between the ancient woodland and open meadow, the Forest of Dean location is perfectly balanced for those seeking the seclusion of the woods or the space to unwind. With enchanting forest to explore, magnificent rivers to admire, and a soaring 500ft high limestone outcrop at Symonds Yat Rock to conquer, you'll find every conceivable outdoor activity with which you could wish to fill a holiday.

Seek solitude sheltered beneath the forest's protective canopy or enjoy the freedom out on the bright open meadow, the cabins are in complete harmony with their woodland surroundings; a sanctuary after your day's activities.

What makes a stay at Forest Holidays, Forest of Dean unique?

From gentle walks in the corner of the Forest of Dean to riverside walks in the Wye Valley.
