Forest Holidays Sherwood Forest – Part 1

I thought I would do a little ‘live blogging’ following on from my last post of our Impromptu Getaway. Its Monday afternoon, and this is my current view from our decking at Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire. Not a bad view to blog from.

Sherwood Forest is part of Forest Holidays, and altogether they have 9 locations around the UK. Forest Holidays combine 2 of my favourite things. Staying in the forest and hot tubs. We chose to visit Sherwood as its a part of the UK we have never visited before. The journey took us around 3 hours from the North West, and we checked in at the Forest Retreat. This is where you will find the reception, shop, place to book your activities and also the café. As I am writing this, husband and daughter are currently doing the pottery painting activity in there.

We booked a 2 bedroom Golden Oak lodge with the entertainment package. The entertainment package cost us an additional £65 for the week, which gives us access to films and WIFI. Believe me coming away with a tween and NO WIFI is no holiday. I have to say the lodge is stunning. We are totally in the forest, and our lodge is surrounded by trees. I am sat here on the decking and all I can hear are the birds tweeting. We wanted a relaxing holiday, and we have definitely found this at Forest Holidays.

We have no concept of time, and we are all enjoying being together as a family. We are loving the moments such as toasting marshmallows, playing charades in the hot tub and going for long walks through the forest. When I return home I will write more posts of our time here, but for now that hot tub is calling me.

  1. It looks very peaceful. I’ve done a Center Parcs holiday before, but never a Forest Holidays one. The hot tubs are always mentioned in reviews I read for them.

    Enjoy the rest of your stay #MondayEscapes

  2. Ah Tracey it looks incurable we are going on a lodge holiday in October and I can’t wait, enjoy the peace and quiete and I am with you no wifi no peace xx

    • Have a fantastic time in October. We love our lodge holidays and its definitely my first choice of accommodation now. Wifi has been a god send (for me just as much as the kids but don’t tell them that lol) x

  3. I absolutely adore Forest Holidays, you’re absolutely right that there is no concept of time and that you feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere! That hot tub was a godsend after a long bike ride for us. Glad you enjoyed yourselves and thanks for linking up with #MondayEscapes, good to gave you back. Look forward to the next part! x
