Pre-Christmas Breaks

We appreciate that not everyone can always get together for Christmas itself, so why not make the most of those magical days leading up it? We have a range of different accommodation types to suit all family groups, including cosy log cabins with outdoor hot tubs and glamping pods with underfloor heating.

With festivities to do both on-site and locally in the Forest of Dean, you’re sure of a fun-filled break that everyone will enjoy.

During your stay there will be a host of themed entertainment and activities for you to enjoy, from festive film evenings to archery, Christmas crafts and our very own Santa Experience.

Arrive on Friday and settle into your accommodation. Then on Saturday explore the local area or take part in our festive Treasure Hunt or Nature Trail, before coming along to tell Father Christmas what you would like him to bring you on the big day.

Sunday morning is the perfect time to take part in a family archery session or take a leisurely stroll through the woodland working up an appetite before visiting Foresters Bar and Restaurant for a relaxing drink and something to eat.

It’s never fun saying goodbye but, on Monday morning, it’s time to head home to complete those last-minute preparations ready for the big day.
