A short stay. Unfortunately, we were not lucky with the weather however we could still appreciate the beautiful site. Rivers, ducks and surrounded by countryside. We could imagine this park being full of life in the summer. Perfect for families, two parks for children to explore and a short walk to Sherwood Railway for a ride on the miniature steam train (ask in reception for directions). We intended to walk to Sherwood Pines as we were told it would take approx 30 minutes but the weather put a stop to this. Sherwood forest is a short drive away. There is a small shop on site with friendly staff who were always very welcoming. There were also wardens who could be seen driving around and who were available to help when we arrived at our pitch. The park was very quiet during our stay and was very peaceful at night. Numerous toilet and shower blocks which were always warm and clean. We are definitely planning on a return visit, hopefully when the sun is shining.

Lovely Halloween weekend as always. Friendly staff and visitors. Beautiful effort made to dress up and decorate vans. Beautiful effort by staff decorating the grounds. Lovely gesture that all the children who entered the fancy dress received a lovely big bag of sweets. So lovely to view the amazing set ups. Great effort by all. Children lived making new friends on the park. Great to sit out with a fire pit and bbq. Booked for next year. We love it here.

The staff at sherwood forest holiday park are super friendly and helpful, the area is clean and respectable and in general a lovely place to be. It's a brilliant area to bring your children and pets for a great time away. There's loads of gorgeous scenery and wildlife to look at whilst walking around the park. We have been re-visiting the holiday park for almost 16 years now and have yet to discover a place that's better than here. They have a lovely dog walking trail that is decorated during the holidays as a little scavenger hunt for kids. For Halloween and Christmas they hold a competition for the best decorated pitch and host stalls over the event's weekend, which is a lovely community gathering. There are showers and toilets that are open for use to the customers and washing machines provided if you needed them. The reception is doubled as a shop which covers everything you many need while staying. The holiday park is only a short drive from the Sherwood Forest visitor centre and the lovely town of Edwinstowe where you can visit Robin Hood's famous oak tree. Sherwood forest holiday park is a lovely place to have a family getaway that provides everything you will need to have a lovely, enjoyable time.
Wayne on Trip Advisor
Such a lovely place. It's maintained to a high standard. Very clean and tidy facilities, lots off bins all around the site. Overall, just a really nice place. Our first time here and we will definitely be returning. Better still, we are locals so only a few miles from home. A lovely weekend and look forward to returning to this beautiful place.
Claire on Facebook
We found out about this site from friends who recently stayed. We booked a pitch for the weekend, loved the Sunday 7pm checkout. The site is just beautiful, full of wildlife. The staff were always bright, and cheerful, ever so helpful when our electric cable packed up, lending us one of theirs. Our pitch was a tight fit but whilst there we eyed up some lovely spots we'd like to try in the future. Facilities were cleaned regularly. The shop, fish and chip and butcher vans were a handy addition. Hours of fun in the river is what made our holiday for our children. Will be staying again in September.
Sunshine on Trip Advisor
We had a lovely stay at Sherwood Forest Holiday Park. Nice pitches backing on to the lake with lots of wildlife around. We were visited by a family of geese with their little ones swimming by, also a family of moorhens with their little chicks, wonderful! The toilet and shower block we used was always nice and clean. The only little niggle we found was, it was quite a way with a full waste tank to the emptying point. That said we had a wonderful time and will definitely be coming back for another visit to this great family site.
Loopey on UK Campsite
We've been coming to this site for 5 years now and absolutely love it. We go with three other family's and always enjoy it ever year. The kids love going in their rings down the river rapids and we've found some good 10 mile walks to do! A short walk down to Sherwood Forest. The shower blocks are always clean and tidy and the shop is decently priced as well. We love that you don't have to leave to site until tea time it gives you all day to pack up and not rush.
Lea on Facebook
What an amazing site! There isn't a bad word that could be said. Staff are all so friendly and helpful, site is lovely and clean its just such a special place. We are relatively new to caravaning, only had ours for 12 months and feel so lucky to have found this amazing site. Halloween was our 4th visit and just wow! The time and effort that went into making this weekend such an enjoyable one is truly great. We have made some really good friends here and so have our two boys, parks, walks and just playing out rain or shine they love every minute here. Thank you, see you next year.
Becci on Facebook
I would 100% recommend! Facilities are immaculately clean, shop is brilliant and very reasonably priced, the whole of the park is well kept and beautiful. The biggest and best thing is the staff! They are all so friendly and helpful and very very kind, especially to my children. And this makes it for us. Two trips down and lots lots more to go at this lovely place.
Nick on Trip Advisor
Simply great. The site is beautifully set out in lovely surroundings. The facilitates were good and food options we're spot on. Fish and chips one day, then fresh meat stall for your barbeque, excellent quality and then my favourite, the ice cream can driving around the site giving everyone the option to gave a treat. I would recommend this place.
Jodi on UK Campsite
Fantastic camp site, we were located in the Oaks part of the site which is lovely and quiet with hedges in between the pitches which is nice. Short walk to the toilets and showers which were more than adequate. Nice shop with all the basics you need and more. Lovely slushes! There was an ice cream van which visited which was great. The wardens often came round and were friendly, even asked if I needed help to put my tent up. Nice walks around the site, and the kids loved being able to cool down dipping in the water. We’ve already booked to re visit and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
Gina on Facebook
At Sherwood Forest Holiday Park the camping pitches are great size, and the staff are really helpful. Children are allowed to experience playing in the river, obviously under parental supervision, but that in itself is amazing. There are lots of lovely local walks and you are only 5 mins from Sherwood Forest, Sherwood Pines and Rufford Park. I cannot recommend this place enough.
Chris on UK Campsite
Just arrived home from a 10 day stay, it was absolutely beautiful. The toilets and showers were impeccably clean. The staff are on hand to help of you need it. Stunning views from our pitch and already booked again for next August. We also went last year in August and September so safe to say this is going to be our go to place. Lots of trails to walk your dogs if you have them. An all round family friendly site.
Sam on Facebook
From check in to leaving we had a great time and the staff couldn't have been anymore on hand. They helped setup, and assisted promptly with any issues we had. The site its self had good facilities for families of all ages. The kids loved the park and the river, the shop is big enough to get the essentials but at a reasonable price. We recommend this site and will return if we are in the area again.
Lisa on Trip Advisor
We have just got back from a second camp here and yet again it was so lovely. We were at the far end, oak pitches right next to the forest. The staff are so lovely and even remembered us from last year. Toilets and showers were cleaned frequently. Pitches were spacious and the views were lovely. Can't fault it.
Kirstie on Trip Advisor
Beautiful campsite with a really friendly atmosphere. Very welcoming staff, with pizza vans, chip vans, ice cream vans visiting sites on allotted days. Beautiful stream running through the site. Our pitch was right next to the stream which was gorgeous but could have been an issue if we’d had toddlers with us. Pitches all very level with a good choice of hard and grass standing. Toilets very clean and spacious. Would definitely recommend and return.
The Chapmans on Trip Advisor
First time away in a caravan and it was brilliant. The site owners and staff were so friendly and helpful, even when our electric went in the eve, they still came out to help us. The site facilities were so clean, I was very happy. The shop sold a little bit of everything you may need, and lots of stuff the kids can spend their pocket money on. Could not of asked for a nicer place to camp with kids and for first ever caravan experience. Thank you.
Absolutely immaculate camp site, beautiful setting with the river running through. Showers were the best ones we have ever had at a camp site. Close to Sherwood Forest and Clumber Park. Was met at the pitch by a warden which was a lovely touch. Was visited by an ice cream van which was definitely needed after setting up! Little shop on site but didnt use it. Check in was fast and easy with a map provided. Will definitely be returning.
Jane on Trip Advisor
A beautiful site. This was our first stay at this site and we will definitely go back. A very pretty site with lakes and a stream. Staff were lovely and willing to help with anything if needed. Beautiful dog walks. Toilet and shower blocks were always clean.
Crystal on Trip Advisor
Our new favourite camp site. This is our second visit this year and it’s safe to say this is one of our favourite sites now. The kids love it, nice walks for the dog. Close to Sherwood Pines to take the bikes for the day. Site is clean and well kept, the staff are all helpful and friendly.
Matt on Trip Advisor
Great camp site. Well stocked shop. A different food truck came every evening also. Kids loved paddling in the stream. The park is also dog friendly. Close to a lot of nice walks and just around the corner from Sherwood Pines.

Friendly and helpful staff, who keep the site immaculate all of the time. Butcher and caterers that visit the site as well as an ice cream man. Plenty for the kids to do on site and lots of places to visit nearby. Perfect place to visit for a relaxing break.
Such a beautiful setting surrounded by trees with a river running through it. Very clean site toilets and showers are clean. Well stocked shop with friendly staff. The wardens couldn’t do enough to help as I had a tv problem which they sorted. Well worth a visit.
Graham on Trip Advisor
Top place been going for 2 to 3 years. If it is a warm day the kids really enjoy the water. In the morning you can feed the ducks and is the fish coming by. The showers are all in good working condition. It’s just a great place to chill out.
Michelle on Trip Advisor
Very well looked after from the moment we arrived until we left. Facilities spotless, cleaned regually, pitches a very good size and well maintained shop. Well stocked and open good times. Lovely walks into forest and not far to all walks.
Janine on Trip Advisor
Five star site close to Sherwood Forest. Individual pitches separated by hedges for privacy at the fishing lake end of the Park. Friendly and helpful staff. Shower blocks and toilets immaculate. Will be returning.
Kevin on Trip Advisor
The perfect place. A wonderful site set in the perfect setting supported by a hard working crew. We loved our stay here and would recommend to anyone that enjoys space, walks or just thinking of relaxing whilst watching the ducks swim by on the lake.
Lovely family camp site. Staff are really lovely and helpful. Great facilities. Superb location we visited Sherwood Pines which is great for cycling, walking and Go Ape. Recommend the swimming pool at Mansfield for a fun rainy day activity. We'll definitely be back.
We love stopping here! The site is beautiful and well maintained. It’s always a nice atmosphere and the staff are wonderful, helpful and friendly. Toilets and showers are great and it was lovely to have the Woodfire pizza, chippy and butchers on site over the weekend. Highly recommend!
Jack on Trip Advisor
Absolutely stunning site clean and respect staff very helpful. Stunning site, very peaceful, excellent service of the staff, all of them very helpful. Lovely little shop with everything in you need great. Hard standing for the caravan with a lovely river running at the back of the caravan.
Alison on Trip Advisor
A hidden gem. Love this place we are frequent visitors for a quick weekend away. Staff are super friendly and helpful site is very picturesque however if you don't like to have a dawn early morning wake up call from the local wild fowl then you may want to avoid Willow. Lots of nice walks on your doorstep.
Debra on Google
Stayed overnight with motorhome. Little gem of a site. Fantastic location. Lovely big pitches on a well maintained spotless site. Friendly helpful staff. Showers and toilets basic but very clean. Would highly recommend.
Stephen on Google
Me, wife toddler and a 7 year old. Stayed on this great site. Kids loved it, we loved it. Staff were super, showers toilets clean. Didn’t charge us for extra car and in laws staying one night. We will be back, beautiful site.
Daniel on Google
Beautiful well kept site. Fair priced. Very friendly staff that make you feel welcome and even have a chat making sure the children are having fun. Highly recommend and can't wait to visit again. Nice size parks, plenty on site. Could do with a refurb soon but well kept and cleaned. Dogs welcome and plenty of nice walks to go on.
Sue on Google
This is our second stay at sherwood in our caravan. It's a beautiful site, very clean and tidy well maintained. Reception staff, shop staff, grounds people all cant do enough to help in any way, and are all very friendly. Nothing is to much trouble. Its just a shame we live so far. We would be there permanently. Thank you all again.
Angie on Google
It's a local site to me, but being on the site spending time with the family was beautiful. You could be anywhere. The staff are so helpful and caring, they even drove around the site offering ice pops to anyone that wanted one (no charge). These are the little gestures that you remember, so thoughtful. Thank you.
Lydia on Google
A beautiful site. Showers (free to use, and always hot) and toilets are cleaned regularly. Site staff are friendly and helpful. The site is clean. The river is a great asset, the children had hours of fun in it with their inflatables. Totally recommend exploring around the park there is more than you think. Great for walkers, runners and cyclists too. Would go again, and recommend.
Pauline on Google
Lovely place, brilliant for good country walks. Well situated, peaceful and never crowded. Dogs welcome (keep on leads). Small shop on site, clean plentiful toilets and showers with hot water and heated throughout. Pitches by running stream and spacious.
Michele on Google
We took our caravan for the weekend to get a little break from the norm. Friendly staff. Good clean toilet blocks with hot shower. Beautiful site for nature lovers, rivers, lake and lots of different trees. Enjoyed a walk around the site. We were at the far side on Beech and it was pretty quiet. Already booked to go again. Definitely recommend.
Andrew on Google
What a quirky but lovely and friendly site. Loads of different pitches to choose from of various sizes to fit your outfit or taste! Plenty of facilities nearby on each section, all along the river Maun. Great onsite shop selling more than you'll ever need, with nice polite and helpful wardens. What a great place to visit to relax and enjoy the countryside.
Scott on Google
This was our first caravaning holiday with our new to us van. Had an absolutely fantastic week. Kids loved it, nice little parks, and loads to do with the little river running through the site and lots of places to visit locally. Toilet/showers were always warm and very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely consider returning to this lovely site again in future.
Theresa on Google
Fabulous site right in the forest with great walks. Shower are clean and warm with ample hot water. Staff were friendly and helpful. The site is very well maintained and there is a shop. Dogs welcome for a small fee.
Steve on Trip Advisor
We booked a family oriented break at this site. My wife and I in one caravan and our daughter, husband and two ten year old girls in another caravan. We phoned the site and they were happy to book us into two adjacent hard standing pitches, which backed on to the stream that runs through the site. Everything went very smoothly, friendly helpful staff met us at the pitches and gave us all the info necessary for our stay. The pitches are large and separated with hedged borders. The stream is shallow and clear, children were playing in it, and there were a few rope swings dotted along the banks. The children were having a great time! There are lots of trees throughout the site and a lake with pitches around the edge. Forestry type walks surround the site. Kids were doing what kids should be doing, playing outside and having lots of fun The site is well kept, they have a shop which is well stocked with lots of Caravan accessories etc. We will be going back to this site!
Simon on Trip Advisor
Yet again this year we have spent a couple of weeks at Sherwood Forest Holiday Park. Although covid changed our experience this year a little it did nothing to hinder the enjoyment we had. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful as always, providing doorstep waste disposal this year, although the toilets and showers were not open when we visited (due to restrictions) we had reason to experience our own van facilities to the full extent for the first time. Overall, another fantastic couple of weeks, site is very close to National Trust venues, and kids really enjoyed the river that runs through the site. Will definitely be coming back.
Clare on Facebook
Just had four nights here and we are not disappointed. Great facilities for kids and adults, rope swings streams for paddling and dinghys, fishing close by little stream train good shop. We had a Chinese from China Moon (menu in reception) totally recommend and they deliver as do a few others. Not something we normally do when camping but after a burst airbed on the first night, new car battery the second day and a broken grill on the third day I think we deserved it. Clean facilities, friendly staff. We will be back next year.
Lorraine on Trip Advisor
Lovely place, seems to be a lot of thought with the layout of the separate areas. We were in a family area a short walk away from older people, we felt comfortable allowing the kids to play and didn't worry about the noise they made.toilets were placed through the field close enough for everyone (might be nicer if they were siseways on rather than facing tents but being a bit picky. Nice little shop and food van, lovely clean showers. We will definitely be back.
Deborah on Trip Advisor
Beautiful site, wide pitches with privacy hedges either side (Willow hardstanding) and right next to the lake. Helpful, friendly staff. We were met on our pitch by a really friendly man who advised where we were to pitch up and park our car. Due to covid restrictions we needed to use our own facilities as the shower and toilet blocks were closed and rubbish was collected from our pitch on a daily basis. Stayed for a weekend which was really good timewise as it allowed a Friday lunchtime arrival and Sunday evening checkout. Will definitely return again when the restrictions are lifted as it would have been nice for nearby family members to come and spend time with us on site as day guests but they were unable to on this occasion. Highly recommended site.
Teri on Facebook
Absolutely loved camping here so did my husband and children. We was pitched on Cedar straight opposite the park, and a stones throw away from the washing up area and toilets (behind our tent). As soon as we checked in we was greeted by a lady on a bike, who showed us to our pitch, she was very friendly and really nice, in fact all the staff onsite were so friendly. The toilets were lovely and cleaned a few times a day. The shop was well stocked and good priced. The Grill Pit was there Friday and Saturday which is good if you didn’t want to cook. The kids loved taking a dip in the stream and we enjoyed having a walk round the site with our dog. The dog did try chasing the ducks. We had glorious weather apart from a few odd showers Sunday, but it didn’t bother us or the kids. We didn’t visit, but just down the road is Go Ape and Sherwood Pines, but we would love to come back an maybe also try out them places too! Keep up the good work and hopefully see you again soon.
EventLady on Trip Advisor
We stayed at the end of July for a marvellous 5 night say. The procedures put in place for safety were exemplary. Having water and electricity supplies to our touring caravan enabled us to have a self-contained safe environment whilst having no restrictions enjoying the views, walks and nearby places of interest. Being on the island with the river and weir on our front door was relaxing to listen to and beautiful to have as our view. Staff were courteous, helpful and couldn’t have been any more accommodating considering the circumstances. Highly recommend for all groups and especially those with children.
Gemma on Trip Advisor
What a weekend! We went at the start of August and then we booked for the Aug Bank holiday. We loved the place, little Gem tucked away! The staff are welcoming, endearing and will go to the end of the earth for you! The little food cabin is an absolute delight, does lovely chips too! The shop is well stocked with everything you need. The toilets and showers were closed off due to Covid but this wasn't a problem. You don't have to travel far for fun, the near by cycle tracks, on site stream (River Maun) and the ducks that feed out of your hands are all a delight! I honestly can't credit this site any more. It was brilliant.
Caroline on Trip Advisor
We have been coming to this site for many years and it just keeps getting better. The grounds are immaculately maintained, the pitch sizes are generous and flat and the staff could not be more friendly, welcoming or helpful with wardens available on site at any time. The showers and toilets are clean modern and free, there are numerous spacious pot washing facilities, laundry facilities, a well stocked and reasonably priced shop and great child play areas. The site is set within large grounds and it's great for walking especially along the river bank which runs through the site. There is also a take away concession which comes at peak times. Staff regularly maintain the site and even tour the site to check everyone is ok at busy times. I can't recommend it enough.
Darren on Facebook
Me, my Fiancee and our seven year old Nephew went for 4 days and met up with our friends and there 4 kids. We all had an amazing time, our nephew is looking forward to wanting to go back again. We can't fault any of the staff, everyone was really pleasant with us. I found the facilities very clean and well looked after. Kids had enough to do to keep themselves entertained throughout the day, along with myself and my mate who used our inflatable boat for the stream, not sure who enjoyed it more the adults or the kids but either way it definitely brought entertainment value to us all. Shop was good, well stocked for kids to purchase sweets or toys and they were very helpful when we asked if we could stay late. There is a nice Indian takeaway down the road as well. 5 star, we would definitely go back again just as our friends already have. Thank you.
Hayley on Facebook
Just visited for the first time camping. Such a lovely site, nice and peaceful, we had great weather too. Staff greeted us at our pitch and gave lots of info. We was next to the park and the river. My kids enjoyed the other park on site aswell. Lots of ducks around and a peacock walking about very clean site. Shop on site was great and some lovely places nearby. We went to Sherwood Pines Forest and Go Ape, and to Sherwood Forest. Would definitely reccomend and we will definitely be returning for a longer stay.
Mcshane on Trip Advisor
We love it here and have visited many times. The site is just so family friendly with lakes and rivers all around. The staff are always on hand to help if you need it. There is so much for the whole family to do around this area now, such as Sherwood Forest, Sherwood pines Rufford Abbey country park, Wheelgate park (amazing water park). Further (but not much) afield is Rotherham valley country park, Gullivers Valley theme park. This area has really blossomed in respect as a tourist attraction area for families. And this camp site is an ideal place from which to explore it.
William on Facebook
The park is lovely. Brilliant facilities and really good areas for kids to play, paddle and ride. Would definitely go again and will recommend to all my camping friends. Only thing that put a dampener on the holiday was excessive noise from kids ramming a bottle between the frame and their tyres. Maybe a little more should’ve been done about that. A trend that hopefully won’t last.
Chezzie on Facebook
Absolutely delightful and beautiful. Our first stay and truly wonderful. Will definitely be booking again. So helpful, friendly and dog friendly. Clean and well kept with good information, especially at this tough time of Covid. Everything cleansed and explained, thank you so much.
Marie on Facebook
We love it here. This summer's been marvellous for the kids, paddling in the river. There are peacocks and all types of ducks. Well kept and friendly management and wardens. Not far to Sherwood Forest and Center Parks with lots of lovely eating places around the site also.
Fearless on Trip Advisor
A lovely place to visit for a get away from it all long weekend yet less than an hour's drive away. Picturesque and relaxing. The staff are very friendly and helpful. One of my favourite caravan parks to visit.
Deb on Facebook
Beautiful site, well maintained with friendly and helpful staff. Great idea of a Sunday evening check out for a weekend stay which makes it a longer break. No toilet or shower facilities available on our stay due to covid restrictions but we were able to use our own facilities. Will be back for another visit next year.
Rebecca on Trip Advisor
Me and my partner stayed here for a weekend and it was glorious! Wonderful layout and facilities, frequently cleaned and maintained. All the staff are so friendly and helpful. It's very family orientated and it makes for a fun, relaxed, safe atmosphere. Just what you need! We will definitely return, thank you for a lovely stay!
Claire on Facebook
We stayed here for 1 night as it was our first time camping and we wanted to try it out somewhere local to us. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The warden was very helpful when he met us at our pitch. The park was very clean. The toilets an showers were cleaned several times throughout the day. The pitch we stayed on was very spacious. The shop was very well stocked. After 10.30pm the park became very peaceful and continued throughout the night. There were lots of friendly people around us. We had a lovely walk around the park. We thoroughly enjoyed our first night camping and we would definitely return here again. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay for the night.
Wendy on Facebook
We went for the first time. 12 years of motorhoming. Absolutely loved this site. It won’t be our last. Never heard of a 7 oclock departure absolutely lovely staff they really have thought of everything. The locals (seasonal pitch holders) couldn’t have been friendlier. We just can’t wait to come back.
Shelley on Trip Advisor
This is a well run, friendly, family holiday park. We have been visiting this site for years and always have a wonderful time. There are lovely walks around and leading from the park, a beautiful stream runs through it and there are ample play places for younger children, I couldn't recommend it more. We always book again for the following year whilst we are here to guarantee we get a pitch the following year.
Mannski on Trip Advisor
Love this site, spotlessly clean excellent shop and staff (especially Andy). Look forward to our stays here so much. Nice and quiet with lovely walks through the woods, or just sat by the lake watching the birds with a book and a good bottle of wine. Life doesn’t get much better.
Sam on Facebook
Me and my sisters family stayed with our children. Nice play park for the kids and family. Nice little shop. My little girl loved her Robin Hood bow and arrows. And they where reasonably priced. Lovely site, clean and tidy. All the staff where friendly and helpful going out of their way to help. Would definitely recommend highly. Was lovely to have the river so close on the hottest day of the year. Loved every minute off our holiday.
Sally on Facebook
Went on our first camping trip with two adults and eight kids for 2 nights. Kathrine was amazing in helping us and all the other staff were friendly and supportive. Absolutely fantastic site, friendly people, lots to see and do with little ones and the burger bar was out of this world for the food we had. Would highly reccomend to anyone. We will definitely be going back hopefully for a bit longer stay.
What a fantastic holiday park. My husband comes here regularly with his children but on this occasion settled for second best and bought me. The facilities are fabulously clean and warm. The cycle paths around are great and only about 15 minute ride to the pub. I briefly met the owners who were lovely. Would absolutely recommend coming here. Well done.
Voyage on Trip Advisor
Excellent site with nice facilities. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had one of their super pitches, with electric, drainage and water connections. The showers were very spacious, wet rooms and under floor heating (although there was only three in use due to Covid). The family room also has a bath, which families would find convenient. The site was very quiet which suited us fine. That was September so not sure how busy it gets in mid summer. Overall great location for York and the surrounding area."
Sarah on Facebook
First time here over the weekend and we had a lovely time. All of the team were helpful and friendly The park itself is beautifully kept, clean and peaceful. The other thing I loved was they allowed all types of dogs, no ignorance towards bull breeds. Would highly recommend and can’t wait to go back.
Leanne Pedley on Facebook
We stayed for the first time this weekend, it was so peaceful, beautifully kept, and immaculately clean. Best stocked site shop I've ever come across, very friendly helpful warden. We were given all information as soon as we arrived, the warden even greets you personally. We will definitely be back soon. Thanks for a great stay.
Clare on Facebook
I think this gem of a campsite may just have converted me to camping! The surroundings are beautiful with a gorgeous shallow river running through it. It was a highlight of our stay watching the children (and my husband) sailing in their dinghies and catching fish. The pitches are a good size and allow for privacy and the shower blocks are immaculate, not a spider in sight! Now that I’ve admitted camping isn’t all that bad I am certain we will be back again!
Lucie on Facebook
We have just returned from our second visit to the park. The site was very busy but the toilet and shower block where always very clean and the water hot. The staff are all very helpful, great camping shop on site. Our children have already asked when we are going again!
Julie on Facebook
Just arrived back from another wonderfull stay at the park. As ever the whole team are wonderfull and always make us feel very welcome. The park itself is always imaculate, the team do an excelant job of keeping it spik and span. Everything you require is on this site and nothing is too much trouble. Cannot praise the site enough, as each time we go we are well looked after and well imformed with constant updates on the weather, as we always park on Riverside. It is always a pleasure to visit with the whole family, who enjoy the freedome that comes with this very family friendly site.
Kazzy on Trip Advisor
We love this caravan park, it has such a lovely atmosphere and is in a great setting. The pitches are large and it is great for the kids. We stayed on riverside and it was very relaxing. The staff here are brilliant, very welcoming and helpful. Would recommend!
Jay on Facebook
I stayed here on Friday the 15th of September and loved it. It's was only our 3rd time out in our caravan so still nervous about the whole thing. On arival the reception was easy to find and a very friendly greeting made my nerves disappear. The kind lady took me to my pitch and asked if i need a hand. We had a very nice pitch next to the river which was great. I then set up on my own and went to fetch my wife and kids, their faces as i pulled up we're priceless. They all loved the look of it as I did. The toilets are clean and the park is perfect for the little ones. I don't normally write reviews as I don't have much time being self employed but just wanted to say how happy we were with everything and will definitely be returning.
Georgina on Facebook
We have a seasonal pitch here. Fantastic place, fantastic people, warm friendly and welcoming nothing is to much trouble for them. All you have to do is ask and they will do whatever they can to help. Been coming for over 20 years and still enjoy ever minute here, so relaxing and healing.
Sally on Facebook
Just got back from a lovely long weekend. We always have a nice time here and so before we left we booked for next year! You need to book early to avoid disappointment. Staff are always very chatty and friendly. Kids love it. They can paddle in the shallow river and ride their bikes till sunset, it's great. Lots to do nearby too. Rufford park, Sherwood Visitors Centre, the little steam train just a short walk away, we love it. Happy camping and heres to next year!

We came here Monday to buy some tubing and ended up booking for two nights on our first trip away. Fabulous place, drove passed entrance for years never knew how lovely it was. Excellent friendly staff, good shop although no fresh vegetables. Site is peaceful and clean, the ducks and geese are a hoot such characters. Our friends have remarked how lovely it is and we have enjoyed our first caravanning venture.

What a lovely relaxing, tranquil way to spend with family. Forest walks, then relax in the hot tub, games and food. Brilliant.

Lovely clean campsite. Friendly helpful staff. The children had great fun playing in the stream and on the parks. Well stocked shop. Like a previous review stated cars can drive a bit fast especially coming down the hill going over the first bridge. Speed signs/humps would help this. Also bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper as the peacock doesn't seem to sleep much! We had a great time and will definitely return!

First trip to Sherwood Forest Holiday Park for me, my hubby and six year old daughter. Just spent 2 nights (Friday and Saturday) and it was great! Picked our pitch when we booked over the phone and when we checked in we were shown to our pitch by the river, lovely friendly staff, so helpful. Showers etc were spotlessly clean, all amenities close by, the site shop is well stocked with everything you could need. The site is gorgeous! Ducks, geese, peacocks roaming around. Very quiet and relaxing. We will definitely be back very soon!

Stayed here twice and it's been marvellous. Site is clean, well organised and spacious with a well stocked on site shop. Stunning river bank pitches that the children can fish in. Blocks clean and tidy (although only gripe is they could have a seat in the showers). Highly recommend and will definately be returning in the near future. Our recent visit was marred by a burst river bank but it subsided within a few hours and was due to freak weather. We still managed our Queens celebratory street party. The site staff were marvellous.

We enjoyed our stay at your site so much at the weekend. It really completed our time at the Sherwood Forest Festival for us. Your site is clean, tidy, well kept and well laid out. The reception and shop was well staffed with nice, friendly people. The food van is a fantastic idea. Ideal for folk who can't be bothered cooking, or just don't have the facilities. The washroom and toilet blocks were spotlessly clean and plentiful. Plenty of play areas for the kids, and a fantastic dog walk all around the campsite, with plenty of dog bins. You may be just about the best site we have been on, and that's saying something as we take ten holidays a year. Overall, an absolutely fantastic site.

Having just returned home after spending 3 nights here, I would like to say thank you very much to the team who organise and run the site, it's so clean, it feels very safe, my kids had a great time and I have relaxed in the sanctuary of tall trees and flowing streams. Will be back soon.

Beautiful place, nice hard standing pitches. Good facilities. Could do with some hose on the drinking water points. I got soaked filling the aqua roll up, who'd have thought, water did not run in a straight line! We went in winter and we will definitely come back in the summer to see the difference.

This was our first caravaning holiday with our new to us van. Had an absolutely fantastic week. Kids loved it, nice little parks, and loads to do with the little river running through the site and lots of places to visit locally. Toilet/showers were always warm and very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely consider returning to this lovely site again in future.

Sherwood forest holiday park is a lovely campsite. It has abundant wildlife nearby, including a couple of peacocks that like to wander around. There's always a warden on duty who is usually very helpful. There's several shower/toilet blocks that are very clean and a little on site shop that has various camping supplies and food items, toiletries and even a few little toys. The shop isn't very expensive although as expected some items are a little above what they are elsewhere in other shops. The price per night for a tent is worth it, it's a little costlier in the summer but still a great price. The price includes your electric hook up and the hot showers. I would definitely recommend staying hear at least once during the summer as it's a lovely place a little out of the way of the rest of the world, although in driving and potentially walking/bus distance if you so wish.

Due to covid all toilets and washrooms are currently closed. Doesn't really affect caravanners though. We loved our short weekend away. Mesmerising watching the river taking leaves past the back of the van, literally 2mtrs away. Nice and polite people who run it. Will defo be back.
Tom on Google
Very good touring and campsite very well maintained. Very friendly workers and the people who have got touring caravan. Fishing lakes 15 meters away from caravan park. Perfect break away. Washing and toilet facilities are very well maintained and very clean.
Daz on Google
Just returned from the site having booked 5 nights, wardens and staff very helpful. Sited the van for us on arrival as our motormover was in for repair. I think the pitches are wide enough but you would struggle backing a larger van into some pitches. Dog walkers dream you can go for miles in the woodlands. We went early season and survived storm Doris! I would imagine this would be a very busy site in full season. Overall I would recommend to anyone that wants a peaceful break early season.
Toots on Trip Advisor
Sherwood Forest holiday park is the cleanest, friendliest, most relaxed park we go to. Surrounded by the woodland, you have beautiful walks to keep you and the kids entertained, or if your a fisherman, ponds just behind the park. You really have no need to use the car. We live 10 minutes away from the park but love to visit it, it's total relaxation for us!
Robin on Google
A beautiful site, very picturesque, well maintained and very clean. The best thing of all however, are the staff. When we arrived we found out we had been moved to a different plot due to some unforeseen issue with the one we had booked. Because of this, they offered us credit for a future stay which was gratefully accepted. Halfway through our stay, we had to leave for a funeral which was arranged after we'd booked at the park and even though they weren't obliged to do so, they gave us a partial refund. I can't recommend this place enough, we'll definitely be returning in future.

One of the best sites we've camped at. Staff are friendly and helpful. Facilities are well maintained. The location is so convenient for traveling to different places. Would definitely stay there again.
Bry on Google
I don't usually leave reviews, however, we had an impromptu visit to this site this weekend, wow! How impressed we were! From the pitch location we had been sited too. Knowing there were children in the party the staff put us right next too the playground, literally, also a close walk to the toilets! Staff super friendly, site amazing clean, just sad we didn't stay longer! We will definitely be returning here.

Fantastic place. Clean, well kept and family friendly. All staff are really friendly and keep the site running smoothly. Size of pitches are excellent, great facilities and loads to do in and around. I especially love the late checkout on a weekend stay. Highly recommend.
Glen on Google
Such a pretty and well established caravan park. You really do have to walk around the whole site and let it reveal itself. Friendly and helpful staff in reception and shop and a very nice on site café. Some nice walks to nearby village. And of course so close to Sherwood Pines for cycling and walking.
David on Google
Mix of camping and caravans made this site great for family get together. Much in the local area to keep you all occupied. Good eateries close by. Well kept loos and showers. Useful little shop on site. Laundrette and drying facilities if you want to stay longer. Helpful staff.
Martin on Google
First trip out in our new van after 20yrs away from touring Van's. Wanted somewhere close to home just to get back in the swing of things. Did an internet search for quality local sites and we chose Sherwood. Wow, what a fantastic place! A huge site over tens of acres but the pitches are so spacious that you don't feel cramped at all, in fact just the opposite. Gorgeous place and so peaceful, even on a busy weekend. Just 30 mins from home and we felt we were miles away. Friendly staff and must mention the butty can. Great guy and food to match. So looking forward to going back!

A very good caravan site. Very good pitches excellent showers and toilets, the staff are lovely very friendly and helpful,the on site shop is well stocked with useful camping equipment as well as a range of groceries (a morning paper can be ordered the night before). There's a mobile food seller parks up near the reception/shop not sure if he's there all week definitely there at weekends. The site is perfectly situated to use a car to visit the many attractions Nottinghamshire has to offer eg Rufford park. It's a bit of a trek to the nearest pub so its ideal for those who like to stay around their pitch. It was good to see children being children playing on their bikes or on the park and playing near the shallow brook. I really do like this site and recommend it.
Colin on Google
Great site lovely location, it is a large site but as the area's are grouped it has the feel of a small friendly site. The staff are very helpful and show you to your pitch, then where the nearest facilities are to your pitch. The pitches are large and level mainly hard standing with EH and TV aerial connection. The shop is small but very well stocked as is the information point. Highly recommended.
Ant on Google
Absolutely excellent. This camp site has 2 play areas for children, wooded areas and a stream shallow enough for paddling. The pitches are immaculately maintained. Even the shop is great - obviously not supermarket prices but very reasonable for a site store. This is now our go to site for a break.
Samantha on Google
We have just got back from a weekend here camping with the kids. Wow! We had lovely weather so I must admit it does help but the place was lovely really well maintained pitches, shower blocks were really clean and there's plenty to do around you. What topped it off for me was the stream that ran through the park. Absolutely full of kids playing on rubber rings (coming down the stream) and fishing wit little nets. We will be going back here soon!
Rebecca on Google
Love coming here one of our best places to go, such a lovely site with great shower facilities. The park is great for the kids and they makes friends as soon as we pull up, quite often don't see much of them after that. Staff are fantastic and great pitches along the river.
Helen on UK Campsite
Just returned from a weekend stay at this lovely site. My first comment has to be about the staff. They were cheerful and helpful at all times. Our jockey wheel broke and we were discussing it with the lady who met us to park up and give us all the info regarding the site. She proceeded to go back up to the office, browse the net, and returned shortly after with the name and address of the nearest supplier. Above and beyond her remit I would say. There were loads of staff around the site and I never saw one looking anything less than happy and they were all really helpful and sociable. We will definitely be visiting this site again. A real gem!
Poppy on UK Campsite
We have spent a wonderful 4 nights on this friendly campsite. The toilet blocks were spotless, as was the laundry and potwashing areas. The walks around the camp, next to the river, for dogs had bins at regular distances, so there was no mess. The site shop was well equipped with everything a camper could need, and the prices were good. From friday night there is a weekend snack hut. We left on the Saturday morning and we had to have one of their delicious bacon butties after trying to get everything back in the car. Can't wait to return.
Just come back form weekend at Sherwood Forest caravan park, what a great weekend. The staff here are among the best you'll find could not have been more helpful. After guiding you to your pitch and pointing out where all the water points and amenities are, they tell you that if you have any problems just to give them a call. Site itself was extremely quiet even though there was a concert in Sherwood Pines and the site was full off concert goers we had been warned there might be a bit of noise, but I can honestly say we did not hear anything at all. Facilities were spot on clean and plenty of hot water. Overall this site is extremely good value.
Julie on UK Campsite
My twins and I have just returned home following a 2 night stay at this fabulous site. We found the site to be very peaceful and very quiet. Just what was needed. Our pitch was a very good size with laurel hedges on 2 sides and hedging behind for privacy. There are pleasant walks through the site, along the river and around the pond. The ducks at the pond are so tame and eager to be fed, will eat straight out of your hand. The shop looks well stocked and the reception staff were friendly and very helpful. We will definitely use this site again and would highly recommend it.
Kwijibow on UK Campsite
Debut camping trip for the family. Asked the lady on reception if we could have a plot near the loo's and play park. We were given both, excellent location. The site was quite large, but didn't feel unwelcoming. My son loved the freedom of scooting about on the site and meeting new friends. Never struggled for a loo, pot wash or shower. Very clean site, lots of staff keeping the site in excellent condition. Very hard to find a negative. Would highly recommend this site for anyone.
Sean on UK Campsite
Great site very clean and tidy park was open for kids which they used all weekend. Came and took your rubbish away throughout the day just had to bag it up. Family enjoyed our stay. Will return in future.
Debbie on Facebook
Well it was our first weekend here and will most defiantly not be our last. We loved it! Brilliant facilities, clean and well kept. Some one to help you at your pitch to tell you where everything was and night time security. Would and have recommended this site to my family. There is plenty to do around the surrounding area. It leaves me one last thing to say which is thank you!!! The weekend was just not long enough.
Yorkies on UK Campsite
Welcomed here after giving very short notice having been let down by a campsite close by. Our pitch was a good size and flat by the lake. Choice of wash and toilet blocks which were kept clean and nice and warm. Nice on cold mornings. Some walks from the site and close to many more only short drives away. Some 1st class fish and chips from local village and they deliver! Thanks to the staff for turning a bad day into a good one.
Wolfitman on UK Campsite
Superb. Excellent weekend package that enables you to have a full weekend as you do not need to be off until 7pm on Sunday. Spotlessly clean and tidy facilities which were never really under pressure even on a full weekend. Beautiful setting with two rivers and lakes to walk, relax and watch the world go by. I can't fault from the first call to book to having to leave yesterday, everything was 10/10.
Naylor on UK Campsite
Thankyou so much for making us feel welcome. The site was fantastic. People were friendly. I will recommend to other people and we will visit again for a break.
Kirsty on UK Campsite
We have had a great 10 night stay on this site, lovely clean facilities and plenty of them an on site shop that sells everything you could need. Great location for Sherwood forest and would recommend and visit to Clumber park it's beautiful. We visited the robin hood festival which was excellent. Pitches are spacious and close to toilets, pot wash and water. If going to the area again we would definitely us this site we had a lovely stay.
Dave on UK Campsite
Our first time here and what a great time we had. The site is clean, pitchers are spacious. There are plenty of routes for walking or cycling etc. We met some really nice people. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Geese and ducks often walked around where we were, even came and sat down at the side of us. We couldn’t use the shower blocks and toilets as they were closed due to covid but I would say by the standard of the site they would be a 10 out of 10 so that’s what I have given them. The other facilities fresh water taps, waste disposal were only 30 seconds away if that. We shall definitely be booking here again for a longer period and would definitely recommend this holiday park.
Stewart on UK Campsite
Just finished a four night stay at this great site. Nice friendly welcome from the wardens. Good modern facilities, the site is immaculate, lots of company from the ducks, geese and others. Would highly recommend to all and will return no problem. Thanks to all the staff. Oh yes great little shop and very well stocked
What a beautiful site! Our first visit but it won't be our last. We had a lovely pitch overlooking the lake. The site is immaculately kept and all the staff are extremely helpful. There are 3 blocks of facilities which were always lovely and warm, one block was being refurbished whilst we were there. There is a shop with food essentials and just about everything you need camping wise. There is a launderette and plenty of leaflets of things to do in the area. A food van although not open when we were there and lots of takeaway menus which you can have delivered to site. Lots of walks through the woods and along the river. A motorhome drop point which always pleases hubby! Thanks for a lovely break. We will return.
Becky on UK Campsite
This is a lovely site with very good drained pitches, which I admit I was worried being next to streams and ponds but they were fab pitches. We were greeted each morning with ducks (the kids loved it). Toilet blocks were kept really immaculate and all the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The children enjoyed the play areas and my partner the local fishing! There's a stream that the kids could play in and some had rubber rings, something we would love to come back and do (reminded me of our childhood days)it was lovely to see all the young ones just having fun and as adults made us feel very relaxed. There are plenty of places that looked good for bikes and again another thing we would like to bring back. If you can't already tell, we will definitely be back!
Campbrooks on UK Campsite
Such a pretty site, a mix of seasonal, tents and tourers. We had a lovely riverside pitch, a beautiful spot with a shallow river running at the back of the van, a family of ducks with lots of ducklings and geese with 13 goslings. Facilities were great lovely and clean, nice hot showers. Shop on site to buy supplies if you need to and a small van that does food, didn’t try this but looked good. Near to go ape and the major oak both well worth a visit. Helpful wardens showed us to the pitch and helped point out taps and facilities. Lovely little park.
Luptons on UK Campsite
This is a campsite we keep returning to every year due to its relaxed but efficient service, and lovely surroundings. We have been a few times as a family with two young children, once with another family and once with the in laws, and each time it has been so relaxing. The staff are friendly. Camping next to the River is amazing, it's so clear you can sometimes see the fish. Kids love the play area and freedom to scoot about. The shop has all you need plus more and there is a food van at times. It's near Sherwood forest, and Rufford Abbey is a nice afternoon in the sun. Edwinstowe is very close. Mansfield has a good swimming pool if there is rain! We don't usually go back to the same place, but this site has become a comfortable easy weekend that we always enjoy and I would happily recommend. My only reservation is I'm not sure I could keep us all occupied in the surrounding area for longer than a long weekend.
Dub68 on UK Campsite
This is the most well maintained site I have been on, this is why I will review all the rest I have stayed on this year. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. We were met at our pitch by a helpful member of staff who gave us the run down on where everything was. The site was spotless, even down to the bins along the walks used for dog waste smelled of detol. The pitch was spacious along side the river, it looks as though they re gravel each site after it has been used. The shop was well stocked and very reasonable prices. The toilets and hot showers were spotless, the washing up area was well lit. There is a fishing pond within a short walk, which looked like it is mowed on a regular basis. I'm not into fishing myself but it was a sun trap to sit and read a book while my partner enjoyed the fishing. We didn't use the local pub so cannot comment. We only stayed for two nights so didn't get to go on as many walks as I would of liked. Perfect for our border collie who loves long walks. Will definitely be returning to this site, it is a credit to all that work there.
Another great stay for our easter weekend. Wardens to be commended for their continued helpfulness, nothing too much trouble. Shower /toilet block continually cleaned despite the site being very wet at times. Always in attendance and on hand, nevertheless the addition of a family shower/bathroom would be appreciated. The treasure hunt on Easter Sunday was enjoyed by all, young and old alike. Each and every child received a goody bag of sweets, much to their delight. The site itself is always immaculate. On this unfortunate occasion we were subject to torrential rain during the night, but the warden made it his job to inform each of the caravanners on the riverside location, to prepare for the worse and that he would be checking every hour to access the river level. This only made for a more exciting evening. A big thank you to all the team at Sherwood Forest Holiday park. See you again in August.
Hollings on UK Campsite
We have just spent a very happy 4 days at this park and I think it has become one of our favourites. The pitch was spacious and the hedging surrounding the pitches at our part gives extra privacy. We have 3 boys age 8, 12 and 14 who were out and about riding their bikes and playing happily around the site, which felt safe. The wide shallow stream that the kids can play in was a big hit too. Access was really easy and the area was lovely and very quiet. There was lots to do round about, good cycle rides and Clumber Park National Trust site proved a lovely day out. The little shop is well stocked and all the staff were friendly. The site rules seemed to be observed re noise etc too. The dog walk was one of the best we've had on a campsite taking you along the stream and there was also a nice longer woodland walk to enjoy. Although in countryside there are plenty of larger facilities in near by Mansfield if you need them. All in all, we had a great trip and will certainly visit again.
