Holiday cottages in the National Forest

Holiday cottages in the National Forest

The National Forest is one of the most ambitious and imaginative environmental projects in the UK. Stretching across parts of Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire 200 square miles of countryside are being transformed, merging ancient woodland with new planting to form a new national forest. As an increasingly popular destination for those seeking to stay in holiday cottages the National Forest offers the chance to enjoy a new and developing landscape.

The aim of the National Forest is to turn one of the least wooded parts of the country into a 'Forest for the Nation' and create a green link between the two ancient forests of Needwood in the west and Charnwood in the east. Before the project began woodland covered only 12 square miles of the area. In just over ten years, more than seven million trees have been planted and the woodland cover almost trebled. New woodlands, most of which are broadleaf species, will complement ancient woodland, meadows, lakes, rivers and other visitor attractions to create this new forest for the nation.

For visitors to the National Forest holiday cottages make an ideal base from which to explore the gently undulating landscape which is perfect for walking, cycling or horse-riding. Through the creation of new habitats the National Forest is also an ideal location for bird and wildlife watching. In this ever-changing landscape, as the woodland cover spreads and the Forest grows, one thing is guaranteed - there is always something new to see and do. As well as visiting this 'Forest in the making', you can contribute to its development by planting or adopting a tree.

I've come up with a selection of National Forest holiday cottages, suitable for couples, families or larger groups looking to enjoy a short break or longer stay in the National Forest. So, if you are looking for National Forest holiday cottages to rent, why not browse my selection to find something that catches your eye?
