New Year, New Beginnings

Wendover Woods

What’s it to be this year? Lose weight…save money…spend more time with loved ones? The start of a new year can be invigorating and terrifying in equal measures with 1st January marking a new era of personal wellbeing. Yet sadly, according to Professor Richard Wiseman from the University of Hertfordshire most of us will have given up by February.

Luckily we have a solution for sticking to those New Year goals, and it all starts with loving yourself.

Change Your Habits

Want to lose weight? Swap the sofa for winter strolls.

Saving for something special? Forget the sales and head for the forest trails.

Missing family time? Switch off the screens and embrace the outdoors.


Think about how good it will feel with fresh air in your lungs and loved ones by your side. It’s true what they say, fail to plan, plan to fail. Put yourself first in 2015 and start planning your next adventure. Fancy a day out in the forest? Our 28 sites re-open in February, so why not book a unique day out exploring now.

Make a vow to yourself to make 2015 ‘your year’ and #LoveAdventure.

Win with Forest Holidays

Forest Holidays

Love the forest? #LoveAdventure? 

If you love quality time in the great outdoors then this could be the perfect start to 2015 for you. One very lucky member of the tribe will win a break for up to 4 people, in a 2 bedroom Silver Birch cabin with a hot tub for a 3 night weekend break at Cropton, North Yorkshire. You’ll also enjoy our much loved adventures at Dalby Forest, where you can head off-road on our Forest Segways, get up in the forest canopy on a Tree Top Adventure or Tree Top Junior experience.

Whether you are travelling with your loved ones or a group of friends, your Forest Holidays cabin is your personal sanctuary in the forest, where you are in charge of your own agenda and doing the things you love. The freedom, the fresh air and the forest are yours to enjoy at your own pace.

Get ready for action, choose archery, cycling or Forest Ranger activities. Or master the art of relaxing, opting for gentle woodland walks, enjoying a sensory spa treatment or simply unwinding in the private comfort of your cabin or hot tub.  Dogs are also welcome in specific pet-friendly accommodation.
