On our new three night ‘Breakout’ staycation, you will receive a wild swimming map, showing you the best locations within half an hour of the hotel to go swimming, as well as a picnic hamper to take along to enjoy on the riverbank, and dinner on one night. In addition you have the choice of one of these amazing experiences:
- one evening join our local wildlife expert Ed Drewitt for a wildlife safari, exploring the Forest of Dean itself to spot wild boar, fallow deer, badgers, foxes and hedgehogs as they emerge from their dens to feed at dusk.
- join Karen for a 90 minute stand up paddle-boarding . lesson. You will learn how to paddle effortlessly in a straight line using the 5 Step Paddle Stroke technique, the most effective way to turn, including the Cross-Deck and Step-Back turns and how to read weather and water conditions so that you feel safe to SUP without a coach.
This can be combined with hiking as well as mountain biking on the marked trails of the forest with optional mountain bike hire available. A private half day guided lesson on the river can be booked for the swimming with Edward Rose for those wanting to hone their river swimming skills.
The cost for the three night package starts at £325 per person, based on two people sharing a hatchling room, and includes one activity, a picnic hamper, breakfast each morning and dinner one evening,
