Forest lodges

Annabelle's verdict
Escaping to the country always sounds so romantic, but sometimes the reality can be a little, well. . .spartan? These gorgeous lodges, buried deep in Sherwood Forest, offer the chance to get back to nature without scrimping on comfort; sumptuous beds, spacious lounges with all mod cons and nothing outside but tranquil woodland and complete and utter peace.

Recommended place to stay: The Sherwood Hideaway

The Sherwood Hideaway says

Come and discover our woodland retreat of luxury lodges and log cabins nestled within the Sherwood Forest.

Lodges are available in a variety of styles – there’s traditional and woodland rustic, escape and view options – and have between one and three bedrooms. Most have glorious woodland views and their own outdoor hot tub.

All lodges are luxuriously equipped and feature stylish designer touches throughout. Each has a well equipped open-plan kitchen/dining area and spacious lounge with a LED TV, DVD and music docking station. Bedrooms have sumptuous beds with duck down pillows, Egyptian cotton linen, robes and slippers. You’ll feel as if you’ve checked into a five-star hotel all of your own.

On arrival, you’ll find a welcome pack of wine, chocolate, tea, coffee and milk (all included in the price) waiting for you. Disposable barbecues are available for purchase from the reception area.

You can bring your dog to share in the fun too – they are welcomed in the dedicated dog-friendly lodges (a small extra charge applies).

The Sherwood Hideaway is set within the vast Thoresby Estate – bring your bikes or walking boots so you can explore the miles of woodland trails and tracks. There’s a host of other outdoor activities nearby from Go Ape to paint balling. You can also relax in the swimming pool at the nearby Thoresby Hall Hotel and we can arrange spa pamper packages in your lodge.

Add to that the wealth of places to visit nearby – country parks, historic halls, castles and galleries – and it’s hard to imagine a more ideal spot for a short break.

We’re located in Nottinghamshire, the heart of England, just five miles from the A1 and 19 miles from the M1, with train stations close by.

We offer three-night weekend breaks and four night mid-week breaks as well as longer stays. Find out more about The Sherwood Hideaway and our latest special offers.
