Robin Hood Retreat: 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 unfound 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 site has 24-hour CCTV in place and a security card entry barrier too for safe, secure stays.

Robin Hood Retreat welcomes contractors as well as holidaymakers.

We will definitely be returning.

    The campsite is very quiet and well looked after. Some of the pitches are really large. The site was only 45 minutes away from our home so easy to get to. Staff are helpful and friendly.

    Disliked: 

    It is in the middle of nowhere. You need transport to get anywhere. There is a slight permanent noise from a nearby industrial site that is 24hours a day.

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.

  • Sherwood Forest Country Park (5.5 miles)
