I’ve recently been away to Forest Holidays at Sherwood Forest. Once again, an amazing, relaxing break that was well needed. I stayed with my boyfriend’s family for a week break, Monday to Friday in a silver cabin. The cabin itself had three rooms, two bathrooms, lounge, kitchen, decking area and my personal favourite… a hot tub! YES that’s right a hot tub. Now, the last time I came here back in October I reviewed my holiday here and I explained how much I lived in the hot tub. Let’s just say that hasn’t changed I have been in the hot tub again as much as I could but the weather was a little pesky and the rain did deter me a little.
This trip we have visited the local village Edwinstone, which is a five minute drive away from the forest. It is a lovely small and quaint village with a little supermarket, many small independent shops, butchers, bakers and green grocers as well as a few craft shops. Now I have to recommend if you do visit that you try the cornflake tart! If you have never had one before then your life will be changed it is basically a tart bottom, smothered in raspberry or strawberry jam topped with cornflakes= heaven. There is also a range of shops to browse around and you can always have a break in one of the cafes.
If you’re looking for more adventure then I recommend you visit the Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve located a 10 minute drive away. From beautiful scenic walks to rich historical information, this reserve has everything to offer. It is also home to some of the oldest trees such as the Major Oak (the biggest oak tree in Britain). Also it is the stomping ground of Robin Hood and his merry men. The Reserve has factual information, films and cafe so there is plenty for all the family including your dogs.
Or if you’re looking for a relaxing holiday where you don’t leave the site then Forest Holidays offers a range of on site activities from archery, pot painting, wreath making and den building for all ages. They also have a weekly quiz which is fun for all the family. If activities aren’t for you then there are plenty of walks around the site that you can complete in your own time. Or you can relax in your cabin and watch tv and films.
I had an amazing time and a massive thank you to Matt’s family for inviting me again! Now it is unfortunately back to reality and time to get on with all the university work. Have you any holiday’s planned for this year?
