When the busy routines and hectic schedules all get too much, nothing is more relaxing than luxury holidays; pack up your bags and seize the chance to escape it all. This Autumn and Winter, why not ditch the usual hotels and city breaks to instead cosy up in front of a fire surrounded completely by nature? Whether it’s a lavish log cabin or your very own tree house, soak up the breathtaking woodland scenery and relish in your peaceful seclusion. At Beyond Bespoke, we have compiled a selection of some of the most luxurious forest retreats, perfect for fun-filled family getaways or a romantic couple’s break. Sleep soundly, spend time with your family and explore the woodland walks all within the fairytale beauty of the trees.
With a range of beautiful locations across the UK, such as the Forest of Dean and Cornwall’s Deerpark, Forest Holidays specialise in woodland getaways and mini-breaks. Their large selection of luxury cabins cater to everyone’s needs, whether there’s simply just the two of you or rather a large group wanting to stay. All the accommodation is self-catered with living rooms, bathrooms and then there’s the irresistible choice of booking a cabin complete with hot tub. And with them also allowing dogs, Forest Holidays really are perfect for the whole family. If you’re seeking thrills, the different locations all offer their own activities, which include kayaking and biking, and the option of leaving the forest to explore the outside surroundings is always available. Whether you want an adventure-filled few days or just wish to relax back together in the secluded jacuzzis, Forest Holidays offer the ultimate hide aways.
Living Room Tree House
Tucked away in a sweeping valley at the heart of the Snowdonia Mountains is where you will find Living-Room’s six bespoke tree houses. Each one is set far removed from the others and with their designs blending seamlessly in with the woodland canopy, staying here allows the forest to truly become your own little world that only you can enjoy. Able to accommodate both small families and couples, the tree houses strive to show off the pleasures of simple living. With no mains electricity, all your necessities are provided through innovative ways and the chance to really spend time with loved ones truly shines. When you eventually do stray from your boardgames and communal cooking on the wood-burner stove, step outside and experience the wood’s rickety bridges, trickling streams and stunning walks.
