Autumn getaways from just £70 a night

From exploring colourful ancient woodland to enjoying leisurely bike rides, there’s plenty to see and do at this time of year in the Forest of Dean – and Whitemead Forest Park offers the perfect base to get away from it all.

With cosy woodland lodges, snug cabins – many with their own hot tub – and glamping pods with underfloor heating, Whitemead is the ideal autumn hideaway.

There’s lots to do around the area, but plenty of facilities on site too. So, whether you’re looking to get out and about or just want to kick back and relax, everything’s on your doorstep. We have direct access to forest walks and cycle routes, an on-site shop, Foresters bar & restaurant is open daily serving breakfast & our daily menu. Why not try one of our Whitemead Waffles? Our on-site swimming pool is open daily 9am - 8pm and not to forget there is some family fun entertainment and activities to enjoy. 

Boundless members can save up to 20% on these prices. Not yet a member? Find out more about Boundless and join today.

BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE GUARANTEE

Book your next holiday with us safe in the knowledge that, if the date needs to change, you can move it for free.

These extraordinary circumstances make it difficult to commit to future holiday plans, but that doesn’t have to stop us looking forward to when we can go on holiday again. Our book with confidence guarantee means that if you’d like to plan your next holiday, we’ll hold the date for you. If things change in the meantime, such as needing to self isolate or a localised lock down and you need to change it, we’ll hold your deposit or move your break free of charge. This guarantee applies to all our properties.

However, if the park needs to close due to a local or national lockdown we’ll provide you with the additional options of holding the price of your booking as credit on your account or a full refund.

Terms and conditions: Bookings are free to change up to 14 days before arrival at Whitemead Forest Park. Offer valid on bookings made up until 31 March 2021 for stays up until the end of 2021, and bookings can be moved to a new date up until 31 December 2021. If the price of your new booking is higher, you will need to pay the difference. If the new price is lower we will refund the difference. If something unforeseen occurs – such as a requirement to self-isolate or a localised lockdown – we will extend the 14-day period of our book with confidence guarantee right up until the day of your arrival.
