Views from the park

General

  • Peaceful base for weekend escapes or longer stays
  • Quick drive from Wheelgate Theme Park and White Post Farm Animal Park
  • Play and picnic areas, info shed and 24-hour CCTV

Frazzled at work? Need a quick escape to the countryside? Or have you generously decided to take the kids on a theme park weekend? Withdraw from work, commutes and other annoyances and use Robin Hood Retreat as a bolthole base for peaceful Nottinghamshire stays.

And what to do once you're here? Go stalking the local countryside for one: the park's location near Newark has it set among a treasure trove of unfounded caches, so get the family up to speed and stride out in your most competitive manner. Then family days out for another, as the Retreat is a short drive from the Wheelgate Theme Park and White Post Farm Animal Park. Go Ape! and a go-kart and quad bike track are also nearby.

The site has a play area, an information shed and a picnic area, alongside amenities of a modern toilet and shower block with free hot showers; secure storage facilities; a laundry, and a freezer for guests' use. The campsite has 24 hour CCTVs in place and a security card entry barrier.

Robin Hood Retreat welcomes contractors as well as holidaymakers.

    Lovely quiet site. But then we pretty much had the adult area to ourselves. The wardens were really lovely and do a great job of keeping the site clean and tidy.
    Clean showers and toilets and love the fact that the radio is streamed into the block. Although, if anyone else heard me singing along, they probably wouldn't have appreciated it.
    Fab little on site shop with the essentials.
    The view from the bank in the adult only area is beautiful. Especially enjoy watching the farmer harvesting next door.

  • Liked: 

    The hosts where excellent. Both hard workers and took a keen interest in your travels. As well as assisting me they helped others with van and car problems I felt very safe on the site. The facilities where always clean and fresh. Even when the site was almost full they still had time in the evening to go round the site and check everyone was alright. Ten out of ten for care to their campers.

    Disliked: 

    Entrance to camp site through a narrow track, signs would be helpful on arrival to foresee any caravans or campers coming down the track.

Local attractions

Robin Hood Retreat is a short drive from the rides, farm and waterpark of Robin Hoods Wheelgate Family Theme Park and from the cute creatures of White Post Farm Animal Park. If you're ambling around Sherwood Forest, the Major Oak in its midst should enthrall the kids too, as according to legend it's the shelter where Robin Hood and his merry men slept.

Adrenaline seekers can swing around nearby at Go Ape!, or career around the quad bike and go-kart track near Rufford; the area also has the Water Meadows Swimming and Fitness Complex in Mansfield, National Cycle Network pedals, and Norwood Golf Club a short drive from the site.

For history, Newark Castle on the banks of the Trent or the spectacular city views from high-up Nottingham Castle are both good picks, or you could get to Newstead Abbey, the former twelfth-century monastery with extensive gardens, lakes, ponds and waterfalls.

Other attractions include Rufford Park, Southwell Minster, Mr Straw's House in Worksop and the Southwell Garden Centre.
