Demand is growing for a new breed of eco-cabin holiday across the UK. Holiday makers are increasingly seeking high quality, sustainable short break accommodation and are favouring providers that genuinely give back to society. Recent findings from show that 52% claim that they are likely to favour a destination that can offer a reduced impact on the environment. Forest Holidays has 571 cabins in nine stunning locations across Britain.

It is a partner with the Forestry Commission and has a holiday location in Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park in Scotland.

Recently opening 11 new cabins in the Park, Forest Holidays Chief Executive Bruce McKendrick explains that the environmental, social and economic benefits to the wider area makes it a natural fit for the National Park:

“The experience of sleeping overnight in a forest in a National Park is magical and for our guests coming to stay at Strathyre is an adventure they'll never forget, but they value more than that.

“We enhance the natural landscape, create habitats for wildlife and inspire guests with our love of the forests. We support rural economies and partner with some incredible local suppliers, attractions, pubs, cafes and restaurants, encouraging our guests to experience the delights on our doorstep. I believe that Forest Holidays proves that it is possible to both succeed as a business and to give something back.”

Officially opening the new forest cabins, Gordon Watson, Chief Executive of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park commented:

“Eco-tourism is important for the environment and economy of the National Park and we are keen to encourage its growth as an increasingly popular choice with holiday makers. We need accommodation providers and businesses to create innovative, quality, sustainable offerings that help protect the Park's precious wildlife and landscape, whilst attracting tourists to the Park.

“Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park is home to a number of rare and protected species of animals and plants, and it's important that businesses in the park take their environmental responsibilities seriously when welcoming visitors. It was good to see a great working relationship deliver such a high quality tourism development and we wish Forest Holidays every success with its new venture.”
