Easy walking about. The Major Oak is easy to find. Plenty of parking. More signs should be around when further away from the entrance.

Hi I'm Sam a 5yr old sproodle. Today I visited the home of Robin Hood. I had great fun scamping about the forest. There were lots of different paths to take. Lots of children taking bark rubbings and lots of other 4 legged friends. It...More

We really didn't know what to expect from Sherwood other than the face that we had to stop there...because it's Sherwood Forest. You won't be disappointed, there are fun things to see and do, a gift shop of course. Lovely walks to the Major Oak...More

We came as a very large group. Parking is plentiful and there is a visitor centre with Information and amenities. We followed a track for a 5 mile walk which took in the Major Oak. We ended up in the Royal Oak back in Edwinstowe.

Our main reason for visiting Robin Hood country was to see the Major Oak, a great tree of 23 tons and over 1,150 years old. The visitor centre is well sign posted from the main road and there is a big car park, open 8am...More

We visited in the hopes of finding some good trails and paths for a few hours walk, and we were definitely not disappointed! Parking is £3 all day - which we thought was reasonable, and the toilets were fairly clean. There are several marked trails...More

I think 7 - 11 year olds are ideal ages for sherwood pines: cycling, walking, things to do on the way round and loads of room for a picnic, football, rounders and other games. I think there's a 'Go Ape' too. It's a great... More
