We stayed here for four nights - 2 children 10, 7 and four adults. The lodge was basic but with everything we needed. Bunk beds for the two girls, a double room and a twin bedded room. It was clean and comfortable. The setting is lovely with plenty of walks and adventure play areas. The indoor facilities are simple -... More

We stayed in 2 A, it hadn't been cleaned properly, and the fire place stank the cabin out. We struggled to get hot water, and we had the maintenance man out twice to fix it. And when your staying there, you really need to bath. We were meant to stay for 7 nights, but only managed 3. Receptionist there could... More

Having stayed here for a week in August (2014), some of the reviews I read about Sherwood Castle prior to going now seem a bit laughable. People have complained about a slightly dank smell in the lodges; that's because you're in a forest. Some people have complained that it's dark and no light gets through; that's because you're in a... More

8th August - 11th August We have just returned from the above holiday and have the following things that we would like to bring to your attention as we feel they made our stay below standard 1. Saturday morning tree surgeons arrived to fell a tree next to our lodge meaning that we were unable to use the lodge as... More

(August 2014) We booked this 2 weeks prior to going at a discount price and stayed for four nights in a forester 3. This is a perfect family break. Travelled with my 72yr old mum, husband and our children aged 17, 13 and 11 who all had a fantastic time. Activities on the site are limited but there are loads... More

I was worried when I read some of the other reviews but there was no need. Our lodge was clean, warm and the outside deck and BBQ gave us a lovely outside seating area for meals etc. The kitchen was well equipped,the shower seemed new and although a little funtional the bedrooms had amble space and enough storage for clothes....

Last year we went to Sherwood hideaway. This year we thought we'd save a bit of money and book a cabin somewhere else. First the positives: The site was in a proper wood, with big trees, and for the heat wave we were cool in the shade, which was very pleasant. Our first impressions were - wow to the wood.... More

We stayed in a maid Marian lodge which was small and slightly tired inside but perfectly functional as a base for the weekend, kids loved the forest location and exploring, very family friendly. Activities on site worked out expensive for a family of four with most costing around 20 pounds, we hired the pool out for 20 pounds in the... More

Just got back from our 3 night break at Sherwood Castle log cabin; we booked last Wednesday and stayed Friday-Monday. We stayed at the reduced price of £199 for the 3 nights. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would visit again, if the reduced price was available. On arrival: staff were friendly; the area was easy to navigate; the... More
