Escape To A Forest Hideaway!
Exclusive hidden Forest Hideaways, for the ultimate retreat into nature.
With a double bed and pull out sofa bed, your Forest Hideaway is a cosy wooded den. There’s heating to keep you warm on chilly nights, plus a log burner, an ensuite shower room, complete with complimentary products and each Forest Hideaway has a fridge, tea and coffee making facilities and a smart TV.
Set amongst towering pine trees, close to our lion habitat, you’ll be surrounded by nature. After a day of adventures exploring the Reserve and discovering amazing animals, snuggle up for the night, listening to the sounds of the wild.
Your stay at a Forest Hideaway will include a personal golf buggy and access to exclusive areas of the Reserve before and after regular visitor hours.
