I am bit surprised at some of these reviews - if people want luxury Lodges - pay luxury prices! I went with fairly low expectations - but we had a great time! The kids loved being outdoors and making their own fun - rather than the money pits of Centre parks and Haven. Saying that they did book one of... More

Our group of 11 stayed in two of the lakeside lodges. The lodges were clean and well equipped. The site was perfect for children with grassy play areas, football nets and they loved cycling or scooting around the lake. Less than 5 minutes walk away is beautiful Rufford park. The staff were very friendly. The only improvements I would make... More

We were 2 x families staying over easter for 4 nights. We'd both read reviews on here and were a little worried about what we would be turning up to. Really no need to be at all and sounds like we stayed at a different holiday park!! Everywhere very clean and tidy, very quiet, reception staff very helpful and friendly.... More

Find it hard to understand people complaining about Sherwod Castle Holiday Park, our lodge was clean cosy but with plenty of room for the three of us, had great appliances, jacuzzi bath, four poster bed, we paid £290 for four nights. The park is small with a very small bike track, and forest trail, we used the pool a coupls... More

This was our third stay, our first was in 2007. It is a lovely location and the lodges are basic but have everything you need. However since 2007 there hasn't been much improvement. In particular the outdoor areas have deteriorated substantially including the adventure playgrounds, and the mini golf. The information boards dotted throughout the forest about Robin Hood are...

My main disappointment is that there is no shower. .. Just a bath. This might be a minor issue for some but on planning on running and long walks with the dog. . A cold bath as a reward was not what i was after... The cabins are very basic and sofas and beds are uncomfortable! !!There is really nothing... More

Stayed at Sherwood Castle Holiday park in the Sylvan lodge for a weekend break with my partner (Ages 21 & 23) Lovely location imagine it would be ideal in the nice weather - within walking distance of Rufford Country Park but unfortunately not much else. However... if you have a car, this place is ideally located only 8 minutes drive... More

We stayed in a Harmony lodge, through Hoseasons. We had central heating which we had to turn down as it was boiling! We found the lodge very cosy and had everything we needed. We travelled with a 4 & 8 year old and had 2 days on site which we found was ample time to explore the grounds and we... More

Arrived in the afternoon reception seemed a little cold, which seemed to be the theme. Check in was 4pm but they let us in early which was good of them. The site was ok if a little cramped as the lodges are set closely to each other. The lodes Inside were very small and smelt quite fusty, the lounge and... More

What an absolute treasure. How can people complain about this? Me and my boyfriend stayed here for his birthday last weekend. The rooms were all very clean however cold on a morning which is what the heaters are for in the bedrooms. Not damp whatsoever. Cosy little log cabins. Take your own wood supply. Very clean, not many pubs round... More
