"IT WAS FANTASTIC"
The location is absolutely fantastic! We loved the setting and the layout of the lodges. There was a big group of us and it was fantastic that we would comfortably fit into the lodges. Socialising was very easy!

Great news! From the end of January 2022, the Government in England lifted the legal requirement to wear face coverings in communal areas. Now all our lodges and facilities are open for hire
Many local places can easily be visited, an example being Rufford Abbey Country Park which is within a 10-minute walk.
We have however decided to retain some restrictions that have worked well to protect our staff and guests:.
Reception is open 7 days per week from 9am to 7pm
(Our staff remain behind protected screens)
Indoor facilities are open
Tennis, badminton, table tennis, pool table and other facilities are all be available
(Please respect social distancing with other guests that are not part of your household)
Archery Centre is open
(These are limited to short half hour slots of Taster Archery Sessions)
Swimming Pool is open
(We are sticking to half hour household group slots with a maximum of 6 users or 2 household groups that booked together. Guests need to arrive pre-changed with coats or dressing gowns and follow a one-way system into and out of the pool)
Gift and sweet shop is open
(Be aware that there is a large local Tesco and other shops in Ollerton – our shop holds limited stock)
All our woodland trails are available as are outdoor facilities including jungle gym, 5-a-side football, den building, animal corner and dog walks.
Our aim is to offer guests the maximum use of facilities which is the reason for the shorter half hour sessions. It will be important to arrive early, ready to start your pre-booked session at the booked time. If you are late, you will still be asked to leave at the booked end time so that other guests do not have their booking inconvenienced or shortened. Bookings can only be made at Reception with a maximum of one day in advance, so that all guests receive the same opportunity to book sessions. We will not currently be accepting telephone bookings or those made several days in advance.
Our Park is in a woodland setting and we aim to offer ‘lodges at one with nature’. All our lodges are detached and well-spaced from other lodges and guests.
In due course if the pandemic continues to decline, we plan to extend our range of Activities (crossbows, rifle shooting etc.) and revert to normal sessions. Hopefully before or around Easter 2022
CHOOSE YOUR LODGE
We have a variety of lodge designs and types to suit all groups and requirements.
CHECK OUT OUR PARK

Explore The Park
A great place for the family to relax and have fun together on holiday or to celebrate a special event. We also have several cosy lodges reserved for families and their dog. With on-site activities and lots of local attractions in easy reach Sherwood Castle is an ideal destination for your break.
Lots to Do and see
All of our lodges have been constructed from sustainable sources that are of solid Finnish pine that ‘blend in’ with the environment (not timber cloaked caravans). Most of the lodges are tucked in to the woodland but we have several around the lake. When darkness falls each lodge feels secluded allowing you to commune with the natural environment!
