My name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you. Do you have a written contract of employment with your holiday entitlement?

yes I do but it says nothing about the boss forcing me to cash in.
Your boss cannot change the terms of your employment contract without your agreement. So, unless you agree, he cannot force you to take cash instead of time off. To do so would amount to a breach of contract. You also have a legal right to take time off.
