During our ten years of friendship, the girls and I have been on plenty boozy weekends away, drunken hen do’s with cheesy costumes in tow, late night subways and hung over tired shopping trips. This year we are all feeling the need to press the ‘PAUSE’ button, have a relaxing weekend together where we can actually catch up child free or not fighting to talk over the DJ, a weekend where we can laze in the hot tub, cook together and eat ourselves silly with chocolate..a proper girlie weekend (how mature of us)
Laura (often know as Dora) knew exactly the place to look… Forest Holidays! Dora had been before and always said how amazing it was, lodges complete with hot tubs in the most gorgeous setting; as you can imagine we didn’t need much persuasion to book this place up! The Deer Park site was the one for us, out of the 9 locations around the country this forest was only just over an hour from home, no stuck in traffic or wasting hours up and down the motoway!
The Golden Oak Treehouse and lodge was our little haven for the weekend, sleeping up to 8, this stunning pad was light and airy, nestled amongst the trees with a beautiful view across the lake, not to mention the luxury treehouse adjoining us via a cute little bridge! A perfect place to hide out and sip bubbles on the balcony.
I think I am safe to say the weekend was a constant sugar high mixed with copious amounts of tea, wine, cheese along with much laughter, story telling, leafy walks and general girly pyjama chat, this idyllic setting was just what the doctor ordered and I totally recommend Forest Holidays if you need a little cosy break!
Now to dream of the next one….
