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.

    For us a good location as we were able to visit friends in Newark and walk
    Clean facilities
    Spacious pitch
    Good walk taking us around 30 mins to one pub then around the same again to another, we could another was reasonably close by but stuck to the two for this visit

    Disliked: 

    From our pitch at the far side of the adult only field quite a walk to the facilities
    Didn’t really need to pay for additional electric as firstly the meter had credit on it and secondly didn’t really use much more than the £1 credit you get automatically

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.
