These luxury log cabins and tree houses in stunning woodland locations provide a magical setting for you to unwind and re-connect with nature.

Discovering Forest Holidays is a gift for those of us seeking to re-connect with nature on our next holiday or short break. Imagine waking up in a luxury cabin set in a wooded landscape, with birds as company, and of course family and friends. There are even pet-friendly cabins so you can bring along your four-legged friends too. Whether it's a romantic break for two, a family holiday for ten, Forest Holidays' cabins provide a magical setting for you to unwind and enjoy the surroundings.


The company has nine log cabin locations on Forestry Commission owned woodland in the UK, from Scotland to Cornwall. Cabins are beautifully designed, offering the very best in comfort. There are even tree houses for the ultimate 'living amongst the trees' experience. You can view each property in detail from floor plans to 360 degree videos to get an idea of what's on offer. Luxury and style are at the top of the list and cabins offer a master bedroom with en suite bathroom with fluffy towelling robes; along with log burning stoves, comfy sofas, flat TV screens, wifi, a well equipped kitchen, all of which combines to make your stay as relaxing as possible.

Each location has a Forest Retreat where a reception team is on hand to help you book activities. There’s a cafe, a play area for the kids and a shop selling every day essentials, including local foods, wine and gifts. The Retreat can deliver homemade pizzas to your cabin should you want a night off from cooking.

Last year, Forest Holidays asked its guests if they would book again with the company and a resounding 97.6% said they would. Recommendations don't get better than that.


You can make your holiday as active and exciting as you wish, whether it’s biking, canoeing, segwaying, climbing. Alternatively you might want to kick back and relax. Many of the cabins have hot tubs and offer in-cabin treatments as well for the ultimate pampering session.

For those wanting to explore beyond the forest, Forestipedia helps guests find things they might like to do whilst they’re on holiday, from places to eat in Norfolk to six spectacular views to check out in Yorkshire.


Founded by the Forestry Commission in the 1960s to meet a growing demand for sensitively placed accommodation in forest locations, Forest Holidays is still part owned by the Forestry Commission. Cabins are built to fit into their environment and work in harmony with natural surroundings. Forest Holidays continually improves its eco-friendliness and strives to reduces its carbon footprint.
