Up^ Holiday Cabin - Leaf Peeping Memories Cast to Keep Forever

A stay at this glorious woodland cabin is worth savouring and this autumn they have launched a wonderful Leaf Peeping experience to capture those treasured memories in a beautiful keepsake. Create a ‘Leaf Memory’ by collecting a fallen leaf and it will be made into an everlasting memory in copper or silver by a local jewellery designer and available to guests at 25% off for all bookings made in September and October and all guests staying up to the end of the year.  

Leaf Peepers Cottages - Wharton Lodge Turns Over a New Leaf

The owners of Wharton Lodge embrace autumn and welcome leaf peepers with open arms. So much so they have renamed their accommodation ‘Leaf Peepers Cottages’ for the season! Located on the outskirts of Ross, enjoy 14 acres of private parkland home to a variety of mature and majestic trees, including Californian redwoods, London plane, cedar of Lebanon and wellingtonia. The cottages are just a few miles from our hotspot at Coppett Hill near Goodrich.

Tintern Abbey Cottage - Wye Valley and Abbey Views

Throughout autumn this cottage is offering a special Leaf Peeping break. Located just across the road from 12th century monastery Tintern Abbey it’s just a couple of miles from two of our hotspots; Devil’s Pulpit and Eagle’s Nest. During autumn guests can enjoy 15% off in October and 20% off in November on midweek stays.

The Speech House Hotel - Stay in the Heart of the Forest of Dean

This 17th century hunting lodge is not only based in the heart of the forest but is also adjacent to one of our hotspots, the Cyril Hart Arboretum and no more than a few miles from New Fancy, Mallards Pike, Cannop Ponds and Beechenhurst. Their Autumn Leaves Explorer break includes accommodation, two-course evening meals each night and a cream tea upon arrival or a packed lunch. Groups can also book on a Tea and Tree Trail combining a tour of the Cyril Hart Arboretum with an afternoon tea.

The Hudnalls Hideout - Seclusion and Views for Days

This luxurious adult-only treehouse only opened earlier this year and offers a secluded escape from the outside world within its own two acres of private woodland. Access your treetop bedroom via a sweeping oak staircase and enjoy breathtaking views over the Wye Valley below plus, the Offa’s Dyke path is directly accessible from your doorstep.

Up - Hidden Amongst the Trees

Hidden in the hills of the Wye Valley and surrounded by trees, this secluded wooden cabin has huge French windows that open out to an elevated decking area that makes you feel as though you are living in the trees.

Penhein - Glamp in Style in Acres of Private Woodland

Located in the middle of the Monmouthshire hills, surrounded by the sights and sounds of ancient woodland, glampers can explore at their leisure before returning to hot showers and cosy wood-burners in one of the luxury Persian tents beneath the canopy.

Lucksall Caravan Park - Stay Between Woodland and Wye

With the Wye running down one side of the caravan park and 90 acres of woodland reserve on the other, this caravan park is a picturesque and peaceful Leaf Peeping spot and a great base to explore walking paths along the river or into the surrounding forest.

Arch Cottage - On the Doorstep of the Forest

Arch Cottage in Blakeney is on the doorstep of the forest. There are unique hand-painted tree murals adorning the garden and it’s just a short drive from one of the leaf peeping hotspots at Mallards Pike. Don’t forget to stop off at Blackpool Brook and Wenchford Picnic site on the way.
