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.

The Angel - Leaf Peeping on the Doorstep of the Brecons

This autumn the hotel will be offering a special Go Leaf Peeping break. Guests can enjoy a one-night stay with dinner and a copy of woodland expert Rob Penn’s book, Escape to the Woods, as well as information on Leaf Peeping trails easily accessible from the doorstep.

Tintern Abbey Cottage - Leaf Peeping 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 30% off 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. The Autumn Leaves Explorer break includes accommodation, two-course evening meals each night and a cream tea upon arrival or a packed lunch. Large groups can also book on a Tea and Tree Trail combining a tour of the Cyril Hart Arboretum with an afternoon tea.

Forest Holidays - Your Very Own Cabin in the Woods

The wooden cabins of Forest Holidays are surrounded by ancient oak woodland in a meadow at the forest’s edge with walking trails going off in every direction. Pick up a map at the café and head to Symonds Yat rock on an 8.5km loop for stunning views or enjoy shorter strolls through dense autumnal woodland. Or, simply relax in your private hot tub while admiring the canopy above.

The Hudnalls Hideout - Seclusion and Views for Days

This new luxurious adult-only treehouse is opening in late October 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 breath-taking views over the Wye Valley below plus, Offa’s Dyke 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

Enjoy 20% off all stays throughout September and October at Arch Cottage in Blakeney, literally 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.
