Discover the forest of legends

At the heart of rural England

Hidden amongst the trees in the Sherwood Pines Forest Park, our location which was opened in 2012, feels as if it has always been part of this woodland environment. With 3,300 acres of forest to explore from your cabin doorstep, the outside world falls away as soon as you arrive. The legend of Robin Hood pervades this Nottinghamshire forest, and adds flavour to the forest adventure that await.
