Family Fun with Forest Holidays

A Forest Holidays break ticks a lot of boxes for us. The surroundings are beautiful, the air is fresh, the entertainment ( the forest ) is free, the accommodation is fantastic and there’s a hot tub. What more do you need?

We recently had a fantastic break at Deerpark, and have also stayed at Blackwood Forest and the Forest of Dean.

Deerpark Forest Holidays

Each location is amazing, and I would recommend a break at all of them, but my favourite so far has to be Deerpark. The valley location and beautiful millpond just made it it that bit extra special.

Mark Warner Discount Code

Fancy a Mark Warner Holiday this year? I’m really pleased to able to offer a £50pp discount on all Summer 15 & 16 bookings made by 27th July. Not valid for free child place and can’t be offered in retrospect.

You can read our full review of the beautiful Levante Beach Resort here.

We have loved our last two holidays with Mark Warner. The flight and transfer are well organised and easy even with three kids in tow, the resorts spotlessly clean, childcare AMAZING and there are so many exciting activities available that you’ll never run out of things to do.

I’d especially recommend the introduction to windsurfing and paddle boarding, the exercise classes, bike rides and tennis socials.

Wilderness Lodge – Walt Disney World, Florida

Wilderness Lodge is positioned perfectly within Walt Disney World Florida for young families, the boat ride to Magic Kingdom is just 7 minutes and takes you right to the entrance and the bus transportation to other parks in exceptionally good as well.

Wilderness Lodge itself is just beautiful, the entrance way is magnificent and really captures the wild beauty of the Northwest, with huge wooden beams and rocking chairs.

The rooms are average size and fit the theme of the hotel, as well as being exceptionally clean as you’d expect from Disney.

There’s a fantastic pool with a slide as well as a quiet pool if you need a bit of peace for a while.  the hotel sits on the shore of the Seven Seas Lagoon  and there is a lovely beach area with playground. Each evening there is a movie under the stars as well as a campfire with marshmallows to toast.
