Five things to do this August bank holiday

Body Content

With the last bank holiday until Christmas almost here and with most of us counting down the days until our big summer holiday or pining over our holiday memories. Keep the spirit of summer still alive before our coats and woolly jumpers are back out of our wardrobes, by squeezing in a spontaneous trip to the forest in your diary this bank holiday.

If you are thinking of joining us in the forest or already booked a break for a long weekend of action-packed fun or a relaxing getaway surrounded by the natural forest and wildlife. Here’s what your bank holiday weekend could look like…

Relax and unwind

Start your bank holiday the right way with a visit to Aqua Sana Spa. Catch up on some important sleep with our indoor and outdoor chill-out spaces with comfortable seating and cosy blankets. Or indulge in our spa experience rooms from wet to dry to herbal to meditative you’ll find everything you need to feel relaxed and revitalised, ready to get back to normality.

Reach new heights

Get out of your comfort zone this bank holiday and try something new. Take to the trees on Aerial Adventure for a dose of adrenaline to conquer the treetop course. Swing through the trees and then descend on the zip-wire for a spectacular view of the forest.

Afternoon treats

You don’t have to have pancakes just for breakfast. Mix things up on your break and head to The Pancake House after a morning filled with activities for the perfect afternoon meal. Whether you decide to go sweet or savoury, indulge in a triple stack with the full trimmings, for a delicious long weekend sweet treat.

Dive right in

After your food has settled from a belly full of pancakes, take a dip in the Subtropical Swimming Paradise for an evening swim. If you dare, face the Tropical Cyclone or tackle the Wild Water Rapids perfect for those adrenaline junkies. Or for more of a relaxing trip to the pool, hire a cabana and sit back and relax while your little ones make a splash in the water play areas.

Sandy beach

There’s no need to book a flight for a weekend away this bank holiday. With our sandy beach in the forest, feel the sand in between your toes and soak up the last bit of summer here in the UK. Perfect for making sandcastles with your little ones and enjoying some delicious ice cream for a bank holiday escape.
