Some lie sheltered below the branches of ancient trees, while others can be found in an open meadow – yet all provide a beautiful bolthole from which to discover and enjoy this magical setting.

You’ll find touches of opulence and incredible attention to detail throughout – from toiletries in the stylish bathroom to the flat-screen TV in the cosy living area (which even lets you order food and drink to your cabin!). All options also have their own outdoor deck, complete with seating and a BBQ – great for getting closer to nature in the shade of the trees.

You’ll discover a variety of indulgent Golden Oak Cabins in The Forest of Dean. Varying in size to suit anyone from couples to large families, all offer the same level of outstanding comfort.

Perfect for larger groups, the Golden Oak Treehouse sleeps up to 10 people across five bedrooms. What’s more, one of those bedrooms is found in a treehouse extension for total forest immersion! Accessed via a rope bridge from the main Golden Oak Cabin, this bolthole-on-stilts features an extra en-suite bedroom for the sweetest of dreams.

Golden Oak Hideaway (sleeps 2)
Romantics will fall in love with the Golden Oak Hideaway, built exclusively for two to enjoy the ultimate couples’ retreat in this fairy-tale forest. Enjoy a decadent escape together in your dreamy love nest, where you’ll find a wood-burning stove, a totally romantic sunken bath for two (complete with a view of the forest!), a hot tub and even a hammock on the decking for those lazy afternoons together. Sheer heaven!

Or why not make your stay extra luxurious with wine, chocolates and flowers delivered to your cabin, as well as in-cabin spa treatments, Champagne breakfasts and delicious meals cooked by your personal chef? Ultimately, your visit to The Forest of Dean can be tailored exactly to you and your preferences. It doesn’t get much better than that.

You can book all these fantastic treats and activities at the onsite Forest Retreat, where you can also stop for a coffee or bite to eat, and even pick up locally sourced essentials (and the odd indulgence!) in the handy shop. And for that very special celebration, why not hire out The Pavilion? With a large outdoor deck and fitted kitchen, it’s the perfect gathering place for friends and family.

Beyond Forest Holidays, your cabin lies just a short distance from Symonds Yat – one of the Forest of Dean’s most spectacular gems. Climb 500ft up Symonds Yat Rock for some of the best views of the River Wye, and you may be rewarded with a glimpse of peregrine falcons in the summer months! After all that walking, treat yourself to delicious local dishes at The Saracen’s Head Inn, just 3 miles from your cabin. Puzzlewood is also well worth a visit – a mythical natural playground of ancient forest. And if you need the occasional reconnect with civilisation, explore the market towns of Cinderford, Coleford, Lydney and Newent – each one a charm.

Whether your dream holiday involves adventure or indulgence, getting active in the outdoors or unwinding gently, the Forest of Dean promises it all. So why wait? Your perfect escape starts here.
