Holiday Cottages Nottinghamshire
If you want a little adventure in your holiday then you can’t beat delving into Robin Hood territory. Nottinghamshire was a land where legends were made and there is plenty to explore in the modern age too. It was Sherwood Forest where Robin and his band of Merry Men were said to have roamed as he stole from the rich and gave to the poor, giving rise to plenty of tall tales and local folklore. You can re-live the legend from you own holiday cottages in Nottinghamshire, with many accommodation options nestling on the fringes of the forest. Nature lovers will find plenty to keep them captivated, with Sherwood Forest now a nature reserve containing some of the oldest trees in Europe, including the famed Major Oak, still standing proud and producing acorns despite clocking up an impressive 800 years.
You can get stuck into plenty of adventures of your own as well, with Nottinghamshire a popular destination for thrill seekers. As well as being a haven for nature, Sherwood Forest is also a veritable playground. Tackle the muddy terrain on quad bikes or mud buggies, swing through the trees at the Go Ape high ropes activity course, or follow in the footsteps of Robin Hood himself by trying your hand at archery. The area is also something of a water sports capital, boasting the National Water Sports Centre where visitors of all ages can try out the thrill of white water rafting.
