Reasons for a Family Forest Holiday in October

forest holidays autumn breaks

As the seasons change, rather than be down as summer becomes a distant memory, make the most of the golden month of October with the family.

With the glory of the autumn colours, the half term break and the thrill of Halloween, October is a great time to take a family holiday. Whether you escape for a weekend or wait until the October half term for a breather after the first few weeks of school, here are a few reasons why an October family break is magical.

The glorious autumn display is the best reason to escape to the forest. From the magic of the beech trees in Blackwood Forest to the array of colours that envelop Forest of Dean, enjoy this spectacular season on a Forest Holiday and kick through the leaves on our walks and trails.

Take an October break at one of our nine UK locations and you don’t even have to leave the forest to enjoy a memorable family stay. Book a Forest Ranger adventure and learn about the changing seasons, find out which animals are about to hibernate, discover forest survival tricks or see the forest wildlife by night.

One of the delights of October is the chance to get cosy as the nights draw in and there’s nowhere cosier than a Forest Holiday cabin. After a day of woodland adventures, load up the wood-burner and watch a family movie together.

Who doesn’t love to see shooting stars? Keep the kids up late for the Orionid meteor shower, which peaks on 20 October. The best place for star gazing? A holiday hot tub at Forest Holidays. Our low-light policy keeps light pollution to a minimum so you can sit back and enjoy the show in style.
