Accommodation at Sherwood Forest

Accommodation number updates - 2nd June 2017

While we work on creating some exciting new lodges on the village, we've renumbered some of our existing accommodation.

If you're visiting Sherwood Forest from June 9, you may notice your accommodation number is different to the one you received in your pre-arrival confirmation, but don’t worry, the accommodation type is exactly the same as the one you've booked – all that’s changed is the number.

Available from January 2018, we're building new 3-bed Executive Lodges, with and without hot tubs, as well as 4-bed Executive Lodges with games room.

If that wasn't exciting enough, we’ll also be introducing a one-of-a-kind lodge exclusive to Sherwood Forest. The latest addition to our range of accommodation will be a spacious 6-bed Woodland Lodge, which will feature everything our guests love about our popular Woodland Lodges but with six spacious bedrooms.
