INTRODUCING THE FOREST RETREAT

The heart of our Sherwood Forest location


The Forest Retreat is the hub of our Sherwood Forest location, where you will find everything you need to make your holiday special. Here you will be greeted by the sight of a comfortable area to sit and enjoy a coffee or hot snack. Enjoy a drink and a meal or browse the well-stocked shop. Pop in for a warm welcome from your Sherwood reception team. You can also meet the Forest Ranger, book activities, and plan your days over freshly brewed coffee and cakes.

MEET THE SHERWOOD FOREST TEAM

Your forest concierge


Once you’ve settled into your cabin, come and say hello to us at the Forest Retreat and get some tips on how to make the most of your break. Meet your Forest Ranger who will be delighted to tell you about the forest around you. Book your Forest Ranger expeditions while you are in, and ask the team to book your on-site forest adventure activities too.

A GREAT SELECTION OF QUALITY FRESH PRODUCE

All you need to prepare delicious home-cooked meals in your cabin


Planning a holiday barbecue? A romantic meal for two? Or a celebratory family dinner? Drop into the Forest Retreat where you will find everything you need for the perfect meal. With the emphasis firmly on fresh, local produce, you will find meats, fresh fruit and veg, everyday essentials, and freshly baked bread.

TASTY MEALS AND SNACKS TO EAT IN OR TAKE AWAY

Take a holiday from cooking


Mouthwatering meals and snacks are served all day every day at the Forest Retreat. Order through our in-cabin TV system for doorstep delivery, or join us in the Forest Retreat for friendly, unfussy service. From oven-baked pizzas and local gourmet pies, to delicious cream teas the menu is bursting with freshly prepared food to save you from lifting a finger. You can even pre-order breakfast packs or pizza packs when you book online.

A SELECTION OF CHAMPAGNE, WINES AND BEERS

Including locally sourced specialities


A great way to end the day at Sherwood is to relax in the bar over a few drinks. Choose from a carefully selected range of Champagnes, wines and beers, including some excellent local specialities. Or, if you are all gathering back in the cabin, you can purchase bottles to take with you.

REMARKABLE MEALS FROM THE “COOK” RANGE

Frozen meals that taste homemade (or maybe a little bit better!)


Holidays are not for spending hours in the kitchen, so we have called in family company COOK, to bring you a selection from their range of delicious frozen meals. Each meal is hand-prepared using the ingredients and techniques you would use at home, and the name of the chef that prepared your food is on every box. Simply heat and eat.

FOREST GIFTS AND SOUVENIRS

With something for everyone, including the dog!


Enjoy a mooch around the Forest Retreat shop at Sherwood. You’ll find of plenty of toys and games to keep the children busy, along with a fantastic choice of gifts and souvenirs to take home. And the dog? Make the dog’s holiday with a selection from our Doggy Deli Delights range of delicious treats.

Pottery Painting for Children

Woodland themed fun for rainy days


Buy your pottery painting pack at the Forest Retreat and we’ll make space for the children to get creative. Who knows what you’ll end up with; perhaps an orange frog, a green owl or a colourful woodland fairy. As the children pour creative energy into their masterpiece, we’ll pour you a coffee and you can enjoy a few moments peace of your own. No need to prebook; just turn up, have fun and leave with a special holiday memento.
