About Sherwood Forest & The Area

Sherwood Forest is an ancient woodland located within the northern region of Nottinghamshire. During its peak, the forest stretched to over a thousand acres but has now been reduced to only 500 acres of woodlands. Despite this, the area still serves as a protective green blanket against the neighbouring towns of Nottingham and Mansfield. Other locations surrounding the borders of Sherwood Forest are East Derbyshire and River Erewash.

The nature reserve has long ties with history and British royalty. During the 11th century, King William the Conqueror declared the forest a royal hunting ground. Since then, many kings have paid visits to the woodlands including King John, King Edward I, and King Charles I. By the time the 18th century rolled in, large parts of Sherwood Forest have been sold to private entities. The new owners transformed the lands into estates now known as Clumber Park, Rufford Abbey, Thoresby Hall, Welbeck Abbey, and Worksop Manor, all of which are also collectively dubbed “The Dukeries.”

Sherwood Forest is renowned for its legendary stories of Robin Hood and his gang of thieves. In fact, most of the tourism from the area hails from these mythical figures. Among the forest’s many landmarks include the gorgeous tree known as Major Oak. According to legends, the ancient oak tree was the main hideout of the infamous thief. And if you want to hear more tales, the nature reserve has a visitor centre where you can learn more and even buy souvenirs!

Things To Do On Your Sherwood Forest Hot Tub Break

And when you simply want a break from city life, the reserve offers endless spots for quiet contemplation. Here are several ideas on how to make the best out of your stay in Sherwood Forest:

Stop by the iconic historical landmark that is Major Oak.

Major Oak is a massive oak tree located within Sherwood Forest and near the village of Edwinstowe. Nobody knows the exact age of the tree but experts estimate that it must be over a thousand years old. It’s one of the biggest trees in the forest and was even voted “England’s Tree of the Year” in 2014. However, its most famous association lies with Robin Hood who used the canopy as his main hideout!

Learn about the area through Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre.

Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre is a primary site for guests who want to explore the nearby woodlands. Inside the centre, you’ll find useful information regarding trail guides, reserve facilities, and educational exhibits about the forest’s flora and fauna. There’s also a gift shop where you can buy Robin Hood souvenirs and goodies. If you feel hungry, the centre also has an onsite cafe where you can grab a quick bite!

Explore the historical manor and estate of Rufford Abbey.

Rufford Abbey is a country estate located on the outskirts of Sherwood Forest. Hundreds of years ago, the acres of parkland were once part of the royal woodlands before it was sold off to private ownership. Nowadays, the manor and grounds are under the Rufford Abbey Country Park and are very popular among families and tourists. Guests can enjoy dedicated play areas, nature trails, and outdoor sports!
