We were looking to get away to Europe for a late Summer’s break in September 2016. There was plenty on offer but these late last minute deals are there for a reason. Every time I checked a review for a hotel in Greece or somewhere I was met with shocking reviews. So in the end we decided to look at getting a cabin somewhere away from in all in England.
We’d done one of these forest holidays before and I immediately looked to go back but they were booked up. My second choice was “Sherwood Hideaway” on the edge of Sherwood Forest.
We booked one of the “Woodland Rustic” cabins. Just 2 years old the cabin was stunningly presented. Spotless on arrival and feeling very modern we were suitably impressed.
We were incredibly fortunate with the weather – The temperature was around 27C on the Tuesday and Wednesday we were there with blazing sunshine for the rest of the week apart from Friday when it rained (we were leaving at the checkout time of 10am Friday so we weren’t really bothered).
To enter the forest was a 50 meters walk from our cabin. Parts of the forest have been shaped into walkways. One morning I decided to go for a run and it was ideal. I was getting over a recent calf injury and it started playing up so I had to cut my run short but the forest is ideal for walking and running.
There’s a great walk just a few miles from the cabin that leads you through farm land to Thoresby Hall. Set aside the best part of a day for walking there and around the estate, taking in some food then the walking back.
The double patio doors lead out onto decking complete with ratten furniture and a hot tub. Perfect for unwinding after a days exploring.
Pouring down on our last day.
