We stayed in a golden oak cabin last week in jan and it was huge there was 6 adults and 3 children and we didn't feel like we were stepping on each other's toes all the time. The jacuzzi was a massive hit with us it was fantastic! The only down side was that we had a lot of trouble...

This was our 3rd visit to the Forest as we've always been impressed with the beautiful lodges and have found it a perfect way to relax and get away from it all. Sadly, we felt that previous high standards had slipped. We paid a lot extra to have a cabin with a hot tub (the hot tub being a big...

The reviews previously posted had generated a concern,so we were possibly looking out for issues. General cleanliness was ok,the floor could have been cleaned better but we had two dogs with us so we're willing to adapt. Overall the site staff were excellent,the breakfasts at the retreat we're of excellent quality. The Night Vision walk is a must the Ranger...

I've read some negative posts regarding check in, hot tubs and cleanliness. I'm pleased to say that this was not my experience at all. We stayed in a Golden woodland cabin, the quality and cleanliness was of a very good standard. Plenty of crockery, cutlery, glasses etc. The hot tub was well maintained and very hot with a beautiful view...

Currently staying here in cabin 39 it's February the 19th and we have to keep the windows open due to malfunctioning underfloor heating in the downstairs twin room, we've had maintenance out 3 times from Saturday morning to Sunday evening all to no avail, the room is so hot that it's unusable which essentially turns a 4 bed cabin into...

Having discovered Forest Holidays through watching Countryfile - I was delighted to find that the accommodation did not disappoint. The Golden Oak Cabin was perfect for a trip of 4 friends over the February half term. The site is fantastic with cabins scattered throughout the forest and meadow, we particularly appreciated our cabin (32) as we were not overlooked by...

We stayed at Forest Holidays last week in one of the Hideaways. I didn't have any issues with the cleanliness of the cabin - having read previous reviews I was concerned, but there was no need for worry! We took our dog, this is a very dog friendly place - which was lovely. The cabin was very cosy and warm...

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...
