Forest Holidays is opening a new site in the Brecon Beacons National Park later this year
Forest Holidays has announced its newest location in the Brecon Beacons National Park due to open in late 2022. It will see 40 eco-sensitive cabins open for overnight stays amidst 400 acres of woodland at the southern gateway, Garwnant.
This will be the company’s twelth UK location and second in Wales, the first one having opened in Snowdonia National Park in 2018. This opening represents a multi-million-pound investment, including internal upgrades to the existing visitor centre and cafe as well as a new shop, bike hire facilities and outdoor activities and experiences for day visitors and those staying overnight.
Visitors and guests will soon be able to explore the many forest trails on two wheels and uncover animal tracks, build dens, search for mini-beasts and learn all about the forest with the new Forest Ranger experiences being introduced.
The 40 eco-sensitive timber cabins are designed to allow guests to immerse themselves in nature and connect with the natural world with large decked outside spaces. The cabins will range from one to five-bedroom cabins and treehouses and a specially adapted cabin with wheelchair access.
Bruce McKendrick, the chief executive of Forest Holidays, commented: “For anyone who loves the great outdoors, the Brecon Beacons National Park is an incredible place to discover, and we feel privileged to be able to help others enjoy and spend time in this iconic landscape with such rich history. We are looking forward to making a valuable and eco-sensitive contribution to the growing tourism economy in South Wales, with the creation of new local jobs, enhancements to the forest environment and the economic benefits our new location will bring to the surrounding area.”
Bookings are open now for stays from 19 December 2022 onwards. Visit www.forestholidays.co.uk for more information.
