A legendary forest setting
Enjoy a break in Robin Hood's county

Sherwood Forest holiday breaks


The original UK Center Parcs village, is set deep in the historic Nottinghamshire countryside. Sherwood Forest is a magnificent pine forest famous for being home to the infamous Robin Hood. 

Centrally located, you’ll find Sherwood Forest to be an accessible drive, from all over the UK. With 400 acres of forest the beautiful blend of woodland, lakes and wild meadows create an exquisite environment for you to explore with your friends and family. Nottinghamshire short breaks don’t often feature a beach, but you’ll find a beautiful sandy beach here, where you can relax and soak up the sun.

There’s a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities too, offering something for all ages, whatever the weather. Plus, the newly updated Subtropical Swimming Paradise, offers rides, slides and splashes for all the family.

On the village you’ll find hearty family meals, romantic dinners, fine dining, fully-licensed bars, or just a quick bite between activities. There’s food choices for everyone.

Not forgetting Aqua Sana Spa, our newly refurbished spa, rated 5 bubbles by Good Spa Guide. It’s perfect for when a little me-time is just what you need.

“We’re outdoorsy people so Center Parcs is ideal for us. There’s a wide range of things to do for different age groups, which is brilliant. Discovering different places to eat is another great way to spend some quality time together.”
