Sherwood Hideaway Revisited

sherwood hideaway

Recently we got to spend a weekend at the very beautiful Sherwood Hideaway. This is actually the third time we’ve been, as we just love it so much there and it’s become a bit of a yearly tradition for us. You can check out my last review here.

Sherwood Hideaway is a woodland retreat located near Ollerton in Nottinghamshire. Nestled deep in the Sherwood Forest, it’s perfect for a quiet get away, either as a couple or as a family.

When we first arrived to check in we received a very warm welcome and were given all the information we needed to know about using the hot tub, under floor heating, wifi, contact numbers, etc. When we got to our lodge we found a little welcome note along with a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates which we thought was a lovely touch.

There are a few different styles of lodges available but the one that we stayed in was a Woodland Rustic two bed lodge and it was perfect for us as a family and so beautifully presented.

The room that the children shared had twin beds, it also had a wardrobe, dressing table and bedside drawers so there was more than enough storage space for them. Our room had a beautiful four poster bed which was super comfortable, we both slept really well during our stay. Our room also had an en suite bathroom with a shower, which was really convenient for us as a family.

I filmed a little tour of our lodge, which you can see here…

Our favourite thing about the lodge had to be the hot tub, the kids absolutely loved splashing about in it and of course it was the perfect way for me and James to unwind in the evenings with a glass of wine when the kids were in bed. Our lodge faced out into the woods which was great as not only did we have a beautiful view, but it also meant that we had plenty of privacy and weren’t overlooked by anyone.

If you fancy getting out and about, there is plenty to do in the area. Of course there are lots of walking and cycling routes but there’s also a couple of National Trust sites locally, including Clumber Park which we love and would highly recommend. We headed over to Kedleston Hall on one of the days, which is about an hour away. Last time we stayed at Sherwood Hideaway we visited Belton House, near Grantham which is a little closer. On the Sunday we headed into Nottingham, which is only about a 30 minutes drive.

In terms of food, if you plan to cook yourself there is a Tesco supermarket really close by as well as some great local pubs and restaurants. There’s also plenty of takeaways that deliver to the site and you can find menus at reception. Each lodge has a BBQ provided which we took full advantage of as the weather was great for most of our stay.

As always, we had a fantastic time at Sherwood Hideaway and can’t recommend it enough. We will definitely be back again soon.

    This looks like the perfect place to visit for a family break. We love mini breaks and staying in lodges is so much better than hotels with young children. It sounds like you had a lovely time away, lovely photos xx
