Head out on your own woodland adventure in Nottinghamshire, for a holiday full of beautiful landscapes, rich folklore, and heaps to discover. This area is ideal for a romantic log cabin break, or a location where there’s lots on offer to keep the kids occupied.
This county is jam-packed with popular tourist attractions, from quaint market towns to the thriving city of Nottingham, with plenty of history, heritage, tours and trails to keep your holiday schedule full!
The county is arguably most renowned for the spectacular Sherwood Forest, a sprawling stretch of woodland, wildlife, and natural beauty – and of course, the home of the iconic Robin Hood!
Take a trek on the Robin Hood Way, which reaches all the way from Nottingham Castle to the forest. Be sure to keep an eye out for the variety of landmarks associated with the folklore of Robin and his troupe of Merry Men.
Why not have a go at the Sherwood Pines Mountain Bike Cycle Trails for a whizzing woodland adventure! The annual Robin Hood Festival is close by our lodge breaks and also a must-see, with a week of live re-enactments, storytelling, sword-fighting and plenty of action – perfect entertainment for the whole family.
One of the best things about going on a UK lodge break is you don’t have to leave your canine friends behind. Nottingham is an extremely pet-friendly location with countless bars and restaurants that welcome four-legged clientele! Plus there are so many beautiful walks you can take your pet on to really give them a good run out in places like Sherwood forest.
If you’re booking for a larger party and struggling to find the best hot tub accommodation for groups, many of our properties allow booking of multiple lodges which offers a wider choice of parks you can enjoy.
Take a break from that hot tub and a short distance away, on the north bank of the River Trent, you’ll find the county town of Nottingham. This bustling city has tons of cultural sites, fascinating museums and galleries, and bars and eateries to keep you fed and watered as you explore the wonders of this historic city.
Discover its medieval history at Nottingham Castle, with acres of Victorian gardens and a themed play area for the little ones. Just below the castle, you will see the stunning Mortimer’s Hole, one of more than 450 caves that exist in the sandstone of Nottingham’s hills as part of the spectacular City of Caves.
For something a little different, why not try Nottingham’s cave-themed escape room? Cave Escape offers an immersive underground experience, built into the sprawling sandstone cave system hidden beneath the streets. Will you beat the cryptic clues and make your escape in time?
There are so many options for accommodation in Nottinghamshire – you’ll certainly be spoilt for choice! Hidden deep in the Sherwood Forest itself, The Sherwood Hideaway Lodges with hot tubs offer luxury holiday homes in the midst of wooded wonderlands. The site has a selection of amenities, including an indoor heated pool, gym, sauna and steam room for pure rejuvenation.
Refresh yourself with fantastic food and drinks at the relaxed Bay Tree Café.
The Redbrick Woodland Lodges offer beautifully presented lodges with spacious interiors and private outdoor hot tubs. Each home is distinctively designed and perfectly secluded on the grounds of a historic nineteenth-century stately home, looking out onto a stunning private lake.
