Escape To Forest Holidays This Summer – And Save 5%
Each season in the forest has something special to offer. The forest is alive in the summer! We’ve gathered a few reasons why – and even have a 5% discount on breaks this summer.
June establishes the summer. Swallows circle in the skies above, foxgloves and fragrant honeysuckle adorn the hedgerows and dragonflies and damselflies flit across ponds. In the summer dusk, bats and moths fly silently through the forest, including the Daubenton’s bats at Deerpark. Don’t forget, on 21 June, we enjoy the longest day of the year. Perhaps for long evenings in the hot tub.
July and we reach peak summertime. Poppies appear in cornfields and hedgerows and buddleia attracts the painted lady butterflies, whose parents arrived in their hundreds of thousands last month, all the way from Africa. The purple heather on the North York Moors, near to Cropton and Keldy, is reputedly visible from space, and talking of space, look out for the full lunar eclipse on 27 July.
August turns the landscape golden, fruits ripen, and you might see fledgeling peregrine falcons at Symonds Yat Rock in Forest of Dean. Forage for blackberries, plums and cherries and enjoy the birdsong, for the exodus is about to begin. The cuckoos have gone, and the swifts are packing up ready for their annual migration.
It’s a fantastic time to get away – the majesty of the forest is truly apparent when the sunshine glistens through the trees, warming faces and creating an unforgettable experience. Leave the coats and brollies behind, pick up the buckets and spades, and pack plenty of sun cream!
