We stayed here for the 2nd time in May 2014 previously been in May 2011 - we stayed in the Maid Marion lodge both times, it was great for the amount you pay - if you want luxury then go and pay luxury prices but for £250 for 3 nights away you cannot go wrong really. This place is clean... More

Awesome weekend break here. We stayed in the Robin Hood lodge in wooded area. Beautiful lodge exactly as expected. Awesome location within Rufford with some great places to visit nearby. We paid £300 for a 3 night stay for 2 (there is a single room in lodge as well though) think that was great value for summer hols as well.... More

Initially very worried and nervous about our holiday after reading previous reviews, but myself and the whole party that travelled (8 of us) could not understand what all the negativity was about. We stayed in the Forester 4 lodge, by the lakeside. Overall the lodge was very clean and spacious. The surrounding area was also very clean, peaceful and safe,... More

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Sherwood Castle, 9 of us (a mix of ages from adults, teenagers to young children) staying in the Bowman lodges. We all had a really good time, the lodges were not luxury but we did not expect that especially reading past reviews but they were spacious and well equipped (we... More

We stayed for three nights in a cabin in the wooded area of the park. Cabin was basic but very clean. Comfy beds and plenty of pillows. Facilities are ample and all well maintained and although the pool is dinky the kids loved it. They really enjoyed the snorkelling and sea scooters. Sherwood Country Park is amazing and only 10...

We only stayed here as it actually worked out cheaper than the cheapest hotel we could find and it meant we could eat in and chill out in a home from home on our trip away. It is a very small park, not a lot there except some play areas and a small indoor pool. The lodges are fairly small... More

This was a welcome break for my family and I. It only cost £160 for 4 nights but didn't include gas and electricity. The pool was lovely and my 18 month old daughter loved it. She loved the animal corner too and just generally walking round the wood and the complex. In fairness, its not centre parcs but we wasn't... More

Stayed here again due to low price and location - wasn't expecting much and that's what I got, again. Firstly the place was not cleaned very well, hairs from the previous occupants all over the place, food on the utensils in the drawer, and black mold all over the shower (see picture!), quite gross. My second complaint is that this... More

Came here as a group that booked three Slyvan lodges for a long weekend. The lodges were very basic but clean, our lodge had a nice kitchen area which had everything that we needed for the weekend. The beds are on the firm side but that didn't affect our quality of sleep. Before our break away I was concerned with... More
