First time at forest holidays and it was fabulous. Five adults and two toddlers all had a brilliant time. The log cabin was much bigger than I expected with 3 nice sized bedrooms. I packed loads of warm clothes as I expected it to be freezing in the cabin but it was lovely and warm with underfloor heating and the...

The log cabins are set in a fantastic location in the Forrest. Checking in was quick and efficient and the cabins were easy to locate. The cabins themselves were absolutely delightful, (silver birch) with a good sized lounge, kitchen and 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom with en-suite was spacious. The cabins had under floor heating throughout. A porch at the...

This is the third time in 12 months that we have been here. We love it! Opted for a three bedroom Golden Oak in the Forest this time around, rather than our usual 4 bed in the meadow. Just as impressed with this cabin as we have been with all of our previous cabins. From an accommodation point of view,...

We stayed for a mid-week break in January and had an excellant time. We arrived slightly early and the cabin was not quite ready. We were well looked after by the team and made to feel really welcome and were provided a cup of tea and hot chocolate whilst waiting for our cabin. During this time, the team took us...

My wife and I booked this for the 1st year of our wedding anniversary, it was that good we booked a weekend in November and a week for our 2nd wedding anniversary this year. We are planning a 4th at some point. The cabins are clean, modern, large and warm with all the essentials needed. The resort has the basics,...

We went to get away from work, life etc. we were very pleased with the silver birch cabin we had. The under floor heating is just heavenly and although there are lots of windows to make the cabins light it still felt private and cosy. We opted for the entertainment package so we could use the Wi-Fi to watch sky...

After staying with center parcs a few times for our woodland breaks we felt it was worth trying somewhere new and came across Forest Holidays so decided to give it a go and booked to stay in one of their Golden Oak Lodges. Upon arriving we were immediately surprised by just how spacious, clean and modern the lodge was and...

Having read the reviews before I went I was nervous of a few points but upon staying here myself I cannot fault anything and disagree completely with anything written that put me off - we may have had a perfect cabin, good staff on during our stay etc. It was very clean, comfy, had everything needed.

Massively overpriced. Center Parcs was £100 cheaper for the same length of stay, and at least we would t have been so bored. Cabin was very nice, but there was nothing to do on site. Very basic amenities, and you couldn't call the cafe a restaurant as they'd so like to think. Wifi not included (£10 extra a day), no...

Oh dear. It sounds as if you didn’t really enjoy your break. However, thank you for writing a review, we are always listening. There is plenty to do locally; we have free wi-fi in the Forest Retreat and also lots of information about places you can visit. We do accept our holidays aren’t for everyone and we appreciate your feedback....
