New Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre Opens In Edwinstowe
Around ten minutes drive from our self-catering holiday home, the new Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre is the perfect place to start exploring the ancient woodlands and RSPB nature reserve.
With maps, trail guides for cycling and walking, birdwatching journals and information on all the local area has to offer, this modern facility also includes a cafe, shop and accessible toilets and showers.
If you have come to see Robin Hood’s Major Oak, it is well signposted from the start of the trails across the road from the car park.
One of the most popular attractions when visiting Sherwood Forest, and for guests of our nearby self-catering holiday home, is Rufford Abbey Country Park.
The extensive grounds provide 150 acres of woodland, meadow and gardens, along with a lake feeding a water mill. There is plenty to do for children and adults alike, with gift shops, restaurants and cafes offering a wide range of souvenirs and local produce.
