X Marks the spot! A fun way to introduce children to map reading
Map reading is a good skill to have in life; being able to find a grid reference, use a compass and read contour lines might even save your life one day. Ella (age 11) shows you how!
Ordnance Survey have teamed up with Forest Holidays to offer one lucky winner a fabulous £500 voucher to use towards a self-catering break in a luxury cabin set in breathtaking British woodland. Each cabin comes with soaring windows with dramatic forest views - the majority also feature a private hot tub from which to stargaze late into the night.
The £500 voucher can be used towards a three night weekend stay or four night midweek break at one of nine stunning locations exclusively on Forestry Commission land, subject to availability. These include Thorpe Forest on the Norfolk/ Suffolk borders, Blackwood Forest in Hampshire, Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire, Deerpark in Cornwall, Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, Cropton or Keldy in North Yorkshire, and Ardgartan Argyll or Strathyre in Scotland.
Whether you're travelling as a group of friends, a couple or with family, your Forest Holidays cabin is your personal sanctuary in the forest, where you are in charge of your own agenda. You can even bring the dog to selected pet friendly accommodation!
The freedom, the fresh air and the forest are yours to enjoy at your own pace. Get ready for action, choosing archery, kayaking or cycling. Or master the art of relaxing, opting for gentle woodland walks, enjoying a sensory spa treatment or simply unwinding in the private comfort of your cabin or hot tub.
All Forest Holiday locations have cycle trails and woodland walks, plus a variety of outdoor activities including Forest Ranger activities. Every location has a resident Forest Ranger - an expert in the life of the forest who is ready and eager to share their woodland skills and knowledge with you.
Forest Holidays are also offering readers a 15% discount off summer breaks using promo code ORDNANCESUMMER and a 10% year round discount using promo code ORDNANCE17.
