If you’re in search of an English rural getaway then National Forest holiday accommodation is ideal. Here you can find 200 square miles of woodland and wilderness, perfect for long walks and a host of other outdoor activities. There’s an exciting array of attractions just a short journey from your National Forest cottage. Calke Abbey is a stunning Grade I listed 18th Century Baroque mansion. Visitors can go inside, and although the interior has seen better days, the grandeur and elegance of the building is timeless. All across the area are natural attractions, with countless parks, lakes and hills to discover and explore. Beacon Hill is a short drive from National Forest holiday homes and comprises 100 hectares of parkland, with a number of unusual rock formations. Historic landmarks are numerous in this area, and not far from National Forest self-catering cottages you’ll find the well-preserved ruins of the Grace Dieu Priory, which dates back to the 13th Century. A spooky side-note – the ruins are said to be haunted. Kedleston Hall in Derbyshire is nothing short of breathtaking. This Palladian-style country house is a short drive from National Forest holiday rentals and dates from the mid-18th Century and boasts a magnificent neoclassical interior. There are also a number of interesting towns to visit, not farm from National Forest self-catering accommodation – Derby has a fascinating industrial heritage, as well some excellent shopping centers, while Nottingham is renowned for its historic architecture, with buildings dating back almost 1000 years. Weather As with much of the country, the weather in the region around National Forest holiday accommodation can be very changeable. Summers are generally quite warm, with plenty of sunshine, although the odd shower is never far away. Best Time to Visit A good time for nature spotting in the wilderness around National Forest holiday accommodation is in Spring, when the woodland bursts into life. Reaching the National Forest National Forest cottages and holiday homes are within relatively easy reach of both East Midlands Airport (EMA) and Birmingham Airport (BHX).
