Just got back from another stay at the park, and it was great yet again! The weather was nice too which only made it better! Immaculately clean and nice and cosy! All the facilities in the cabins are great, especially the hot tub 😁! Looking forward to going back next year already!

Another great stay. Great to book knowing a warm welcome awaits. Cabins are always clean, tidy and private. Excellent way to relax in the hot tub after a good long walk in the forest and even better with a glass of fizz in hand! Looking forward to booking another stay soon.

We went on this holiday from Monday to Friday to relax and destress at the end of my convalescence. It did the job perfectly. The cabin was big, modern, clean, well equipped and warm (it was November). The hot tub was a dream as we lay in it watching shootings stars on our first night with specially provided plastic wine...

We stayed at the lodges in The Forest of Dean and had a really nice time. The lodges were clean and spacious, plenty of towels for the showers and jacuzzi. We walked miles and had a great relaxing stay in our Gold cabin. You could hire bikes better value for the week than the day. The restaurant was expensive, so... More

Our first visit to the Forest Holidays in the FOD and not all together bad. We were in the main meadow, which lacks the privacy of the older lower numbered cabins. Yes the cabins are nice and clean, Hot tub clean and serviced everyday. Ours was a Golden Oak 4 berth and had room enough for 4 adults without falling... More

When we firstly got to the forest retreat they gave us the key and we went to our cabin. The staff at the forest retreat were kind and helpful. The only thing that was wrong was that the hot tub didn't work on the first night this was a pain as we all wanted to get in it when we... More
