Since chances of abroad travel are questionable, this year is the perfect opportunity to explore areas closer to home, and something the UK has in abundance is forests. Below, are some forest retreats across the UK, perfect for those who love luxury and tranquillity as well as those who enjoy outdoor adventure. 

Burlingham Yurts:

Tucked into the 7 acre gardens of Burlingham Hall in Norfolk, is a secluded yurt offering all the essential amenities plus a wood-burner and a lava rock BBQ, ensuring peaceful seclusion under the starry night sky. In the day you can discover the various walking trails, visit the nearby coast and the Winterton dunes.

Lanrick Treehouses: 

Situated on the banks of River Teith in Perthshire, are 5 unique treehouses, each named after the owners’ favourite woodland birds. They come with a log burning stove, tree top terrace and an outside bath, and since they border Trossachs National Park, there is plenty to do in terms of outdoor activities, including mountain climbing, wild swimming, and salmon and trout fishing.

Finn Lough:

Offering uninterrupted views of the starry skies, the transparent domes at Finn Lough are the perfect place to stay within Northern Ireland. The domes are complete with Nespresso coffee machines, breakfast delivered every morning and a roll top bath overlooking the forest. In the day you can enjoy the forest spa, a whisky masterclass or for something more fast-paced, like kayaking around the secluded islands.

Chewton Glen:

A stay at Chewton Glen treehouses offers a luxurious experience 35 feet above the ground. Located in Hampshire, the treehouse hosts an outside terrace with a hot tub, breakfast hampers, under floor heating and mood lighting. The beach is only a short walk away and you can also visit Stonehenge and the New Forest whilst in the area. 

Red Kite tree tents:

As seen on Channel 4’s amazing spaces, these colourful pods are situated high in the trees with your own kitchen, shower and bedroom. The pods are made from hybrid aluminium and a static airframe resulting in a unique and yet relaxing stay deep within 80 acres of woodland.
