Forest Holidays launching next phase of development scheme
Refurbished sites, including dog showers, are among the plans announced by Forest Holidays, a partnership between the Forestry Commission and The Camping and Caravanning Club.
The 2007/08 winter season will see Forest Holidays sites undergo the second phase of a £40 million, five-year investment programme.
The investment will focus on three English sites as Scottish sites benefited under the first phase of the project.
Spiers House near Pickering in North Yorkshire is one of the English sites earmarked for development and the other two are in the New Forest.
As well as increasing its programme of forest ranger led activities, which include nature and discovery walks, the company is opening three sites throughout the winter period and keeping four others open until mid-January.
Sites open all winter are Glenmore in Cairngorms, Beddgelert in Snowdonia and Setthorns in the New Forest.
Those open until 14 January are Cashel, Ardgarten and Cobleland in Scotland and Christchurch in the Forest of Dean.
