Holiday Accommodation in Sherwood Forest
Sherwood Forest is a Royal Forest in Nottinghamshire, England, that is famous through its historical association with the legend of Robin Hood. The Forestry Commission manages most of the forest and provides walks and trails and a host of other activities, while part of the forest was opened as a country park to the public in 1969. This means a lot of the forest is protected by law and has so remained a beautiful deep forest, if a little smaller than in prior years. The Forest is home to the famous Major Oak, one of Britain's most famous trees. Within the forest there is a free visitor centre, golf course and a variety of holiday accommodation.
The park hosts the annual Robin Hood Festival for a week each summer. This event recreates a medieval atmosphere and features the major characters from the Robin Hood legend. The week's entertainment includes jousters and strolling players, dressed in medieval attire, in addition to a medieval encampment complete with jesters, musicians, rat-catchers, alchemists and fire eaters.
